Got this 5cl sample in my second batch from Rum Ratings Tasting Club and participated in the virtual tasting yesterday. The Abuelo XII Two Oaks is a 12yo rum stored in two different types of oak barrels. First on traditional Tennessee whiskey / bourbon casks during 11 years, and then a final storage on deep-fried casks of new American white oak. It’s produced from both molasses and sugar cane juice by Varela Hermanos. The sugar content is 24 gpl, so it’s sweet but not extremely sweet.

Normalerweise finde ich rauchige Aromen nicht so toll, aber hier ist es sehr zurückhaltend und passt sich gut in das Gesamtbild ein. Deutliche Karamellsüße trifft Holz und röstige Noten, rund und lecker! Eher noch ein Rum für Einsteiger bis Fortgeschrittene.. das Profil trifft auf jeden Fall meinen Geschmack und es lohnt sich, ihn probiert zu haben. Solider Spanier!

Ein sehr leckerer Rum, kräftig im Geschmack, trotzdem sehr weich im Abgang, schöne holzige Note

Profile picture of user

sehr leckere intensive Panama Noten. Rötig/rauchig und auch holzig. Natürlich auch relativ süß.

A woody one 🤪 It’s okay nothing really special, but good to drink. Not fruity and not spicy, but a rich taste of cognac… good for beginners. *Update: New rating 70

Kaum Geruch, starker Geschmack, würzig, herb, leicht nach Hustensaft. Alkoholisch.

Sucré et boisé. Du Panaméen agréable 🙂🙂

Profile picture of user

assez agréable au nez, avec des odeurs qui tourne quand même fort autour du bois ( fumé, chêne, fut) et une légère odeur de pruneaux bien mûre. En bouche assez doux et rond, pas trop sucré et une final sur le boisé assez longue.

14/20 ressemble au bumbu mais moins sucré

Sweet at first but then the taste opens and show more detailed notes such as caramel, burnt sugar, oak, spiciness from the charred oak barrel and finishes up in slight bitterness. It is more than medium sweet but nicely balanced. Interesting rum but definitely missed it's price tag. I would be down to paying max 35€. More than that is pure nonsense to me.

Bardzo dobry produkt.

It tasted far too sweet to not have some type of additives.
