Ron Abuelo 7 Años
Ron Abuelo // Panama
Ron Abuelo is produced by Panama's Varela Hermanos, an enterprise that grows its own cane and controls the entire process from hand-harvesting to distillation and ageing. The 7 Años rum is produced from a blend of pressed cane juice in season and cane juice plus molasses during off- season--both aged in used bourbon barrels before assembly. The resulting color is a light amber/gold.
Aged RumRum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".
"The 7 Años opens with a slight sweetness on the nose, followed by light aromas that conjure white flowers and dry grass. Aromatic hints of coconut and hazelnut announce a palate that starts with some heat and evolves into a blend of caramel and vanilla. The medium-long finish introduces some cedar and spice before tapering off into burnished leather."
