Ron Abuelo XII Two Oaks begins with a blend of rums aged 8 years and 40 + years averaging just over 11 years of age. These rums were aged in white oak ex-bourbon barrels. Then the rum is finished for 9 months in virgin American oak 200-liter barrels.

These virgin barrels are extra-charred. First they are given a slow & low char for 60 minutes (180°C/356°F) before getting a final char for 20-25 seconds (225°C/437°F) resulting in 8mm of black char on the barrels. Available in the US as of December 2020.

  • Aged Rum
    Rum 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".

Tasting Notes

"Sometimes there's nothing like an afternoon espresso with a little extra sugar and some orange peel, and this is what this rum initially tastes like. Further sips reveal herbal notes of thyme, oregano, black pepper and sarsaparilla. It's still very much on the sweet side, but pleasant to sip, especially if you enjoy a sweet, roasty coffee with a citrus peel! "
