(4 out of 5). An excellent rum, one of my favorites in the ~$30 range. On the nose I get vanilla, maple, and oak, and on the palate it is sweet, but not syrupy and overdone like some of its competitors. Well aged, nicely presented, and a pleasure to sip. $34 or so in my area.

Fantastic! Slightly sweet with just the right amount of vanilla. The oak casks do this rum well - it is fabulous!

A lovely stately expression of a rum. Very complex and nicely dry. Unlike many of their competitors Abuelo did not make a sweet, syrupy and heavy expression of a old rum. This rum is complex in a lovely subdued and dry way, showing it's age with grace and sophistication.

At The Rum Project (link follows) Sue Sea and I have reviewed over 120 rums. The Abuelos were among the first. If you like classic rum flavors and deep, sweet heat you'll love the 12 year. Neither the Anejo, the 7 Year or the 12 year are particularly expensive, so it's possible to buy all three and see what aging can do for a good rum. For a nice overview of all three, and many more honest reviews, check here... http://rumproject.com/rumforum//viewtopic.php?p=414#414
