Ron Abuelo Centuria Rum (750ml)
One of the big guns on the Rum Shelves.
Tasting note: This is Abuelo's flagship, a blend of their oldest reserves aged in x-Bourbon barrels for up to 30 years. It was released to celebrate a century of rum-making. Burnt sienna with deep gold ochre edges. Perfect clarity. Several minutes in the glass coaxes heavy scents of maple syrup, pancake, beeswax, sticky date pudding, caramel fudge and more. Clean, elegant, middle weighted with a superb sweet / dry balance and flavours of dates, walnut slice, new leather, hazelnut, caramel and sweet cigar box. Ends drier than the mid palate stage, perfectly balanced and showing impressive persistence. First class. 40% Alc./Vol.
Other reviews... The unusually deep caramel hue advertises the powerful flavors: crème brûlée, lingering and kaleidoscopic notes of coffee bean, caramel, cola, muted gingerbread spices and just a mere hint of sweetness.

"The immensely appealing nose combines vanilla and molasses with chocolate and coffee. The palate, rich with syrupy cane, avoids any cloying aspects by virtue of its lively, berry-like fruit, mulled cider, baked pear and tobacco notes--many of which continue into a lingering, smoldering finish." 94 points - distiller.com
