Top reviews for Ron Abuelo 12 Year Old Rum:

— I'm not a rum drinker but this is by far one of the best, notes of vanilla and caramel and smoother than a baby's butt.

— My name sake. Have never had rum by itself but, I highly enjoyed the flavor of this.

— A lovely, sweet rum with a touch of complexity at the back. The front presents as a slice of red velvet cake drizzled in honey and it then evolves with some spice and leather.

Brandon,
This has become our go to rum to keep in the house, in fact our liquor stores put it on clearance and cleared them all out so I bought all 12 bottles they had left within a 50 mile radius. This is a great rum to share with fine spirit connoisseurs that haven't stepped into the rum game.

Robert,
You can tell they age it in a whiskey barrel. Has a strong bite on the rocks. With a splash of water it smiths out and becomes very enjoyable.
 
DAVID
DAVID,
Good flavor and smooth overall, but hints of a whiskey burn as well. Good, but I didn't appreciate it on the rocks. Mix lightly and the rum comes alive and is very enjoyable.

Joe,
A 12 year old dark rum from Ron Abuelo of Panama. They age their rum in whiskey barrels, which adds a distinct vanilla sweetnses. This 12 year old was launched in 2009, and is elegant, slightly smoky and rich. It was awarded a Gold at the 2009 Ministry of Rum Tasting Competition.
