Ron Abuelo Centuria
Ron Abuelo // Panama
The Centuria is a solera-type blend of rums from the "Reserva de la Familia" aged up to 30 years in American whiskey barrels. Varela Hermanos, the distillery in Panama that produces this and other rum products, grows its own cane and controls the entire subsequent process from fermentation and distillation to ageing and assembly.
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 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."
