A delicious Panamanian Rum with a toffee-like flavor profile and a lightly dry finish.

The history of Varela Hermanos Distillery dates back to 1908 when Don José Varela Blanco — a young Spanish immigrant — founded the first sugar mill in the little town of Pesé. Pesé is located on a fertile valley in the center of Panama and most of its 10,000 citizens cultivate and grow sugarcane. In 1936, his three sons — José Manuel, Plinio, and Julio — convinced Don José to start distillation, and Ron Abuelo Rum was born.

"Ron Abuelo" translates roughly as "Rum of our Grandfather," and yes, that’s pretty cool. There is no official designation for Rums like this, but since Ron Abuelo controls every aspect of production — from growing their own cane through bottling — you could call it an estate Rum. They are still independent (God bless ‘em) and produce a range of delicious Rums of the highest quality.

When you read through the comments and reviews of Ron Abuelo Rums it’s common to see statements like "a great Rum for Whiskey fans." That’s because they treat Rum like a distillery in Scotland treats Single Malts — allowing the Spirit to age naturally, undisturbed in ex-Bourbon casks. Ron Abuelo 7 Años Reserva Superior Rum fulfills that vision for seven full years of maturation on site in the Bride of the World.

Common Rum classifications: White, Golden or Amber, Dark, Spiced, Añejo and Age-Dated Rums.
A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. The most popular suggestions are Rum (the Romani word for 'potent'), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), and Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).
Next time you have a tipple of Rum you can say that you're tapping the Admiral. This intriguing phrase comes from the great Admiral Nelson who was killed in the battle of Trafalgar off of Spain. The story is that his body was preserved in Rum to be shipped back to England but, when the barrel arrived, some of the Rum was missing and said to have been siphoned off by some desperate or unknowing sailors. It's a great story but most likely false.
If the center of our galaxy had a signature scent, it would be Rum. Yup, astronomers studying a giant cloud in the Milky Way found a substance called ethyl formate, a chemical that smells suspiciously like Rum.
You might find Rum masquerading itself under other nom de plumes, like Ron, Rom and Rhum.
Mount Gay Rum is the oldest existing Rum company in the World dating back to 1705. This is also the year Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Britain’s Parliament.
