Arehucas Añejo Reserva Especial 12yr 40%

RX1319 Pleasant Column Still Rum Under 50€
“Smooth, sweet, with notes of caramel, tobacco, and a spicy kick.”

The Añejo Reserva Especial is a 12-year-old rum produced in Gran Canaria at the Arehucas distillery. Distilled from Molasses with a Column Still and having an ABV of 40%, this rum has garnered a myriad of tasting notes. Aromas of caramel, honey, vanilla, nutty, and sherry charm the nose, while flavors of caramel, thin, buttery, spice, and sweet tempt the palate. With its rich history, the Arehucas distillery has been crafting rums since 1884 and has even provided their products to the Spanish Royal family. This particular rum is praised for its appealing mouthfeel, well-rounded palate, and reasonable price point. However, some users find it a bit thin in taste, with a hint of bitterness in the finish. Overall, the Añejo Reserva Especial is a pleasant rum experience, though some prefer its 18-year-old brother for a more refined and flavorful profile.

“A very nice Spanish rum from a destillery making rum since 1884 and has been delivering to the Spanish Royal family since 1892. A ver refined rum with a nicely rounded palate. Clear taste of molasses, spices and tobacco. Very good at the price tag.”

“An der Nase zum einem fruchtignussige Sherrynoten, aber auch brauner Zucker, geröstetes Karamell und Vanille. Im Mund süß, etwas rauchig, im Abgang würziger Honig mit süßer Orange. Dieser Rum ist nicht so gut wie sein 18-jähriger Bruder von Arehucas. Jünger, rauer, dünner und weniger Geschmack. Da lohnt sich der Aufpreis zum 18y auf jeden Fall.”
