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.

Rum (usually) comes from molasses, the sweet and syrupy residue of refining sugarcane into sugar. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, contributing to the final flavor.
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.
Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
Rum is a sugar cane based spirit, primarily made in the Caribbean and Latin America, but you can really find Rum in many corners of the world.
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).
