I caught up with the lads this afternoon on the deck. Laz told me about "Abuelo" rum of which I have never tried. Needless to say I said that while a picture may be a 1000 words, an actual drop of the bloody stuff would be better. He promises to make due upon my return from China. 

There are so many great rums in the world. 

Abuelo...have you tried it?

Your favourite rum right now?

Have a great weekend! :spotlight:

El Dorado 12 is a nice sipper from Guyana. Pair it with at least a medium strength cigar, otherwise it will overpower the cigar.    

This... Cheers!

Never tried it, but I really like Diplomaticos and ED 15 which is my go to rum in the summer.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Not easy to come by. Cask strength which I enjoy.

Ron Matusalem 15 year gran Reserva

Pyrat

Ron Zacapa XO

Appleton Estate 12 year

Cockspur 12 year

Ron Zacapa 23 year

Brugal Extra Anejo

Havana Club 7 year

I have tried the Abuelo. Very tasty with a drier profile. My current go to is the Diplomatico Reserva.

Diplomatico is good stuff, for my everyday rum it would be a toss up between Zaya and Ron Miel.

I, too, am a fan of Zaya.  I like it just a little better than Zacapa and its about half the price of Zacapa at my local liquor stores.

One of the best rums I've ever had, and really this was my first high end rum as well.  My wife is Panamainian so we travel down there about ever two years or so, when we do we bring as many bottles of Abuelo as customers will allow, or slightly more:ph34r:.  We're down to one unopened bottle right now, maybe we're ready for another trip!

Yup to both!  These are my two current favs. I find them to be more complex than the Z rums for about the ssme price on both. Plus the El d 12 is one of the only true 12 year rums not a solera. Their 15 is good too but I prefer the 12.

Ron Zacapa 23 for sipping and Havana Club 7 for mixing are my two "go to" rums.  When in Cuba I like bringing back as many bottles of Ron Santiago de Cuba and Legendario as I can bring back.  I'll pick up a bottle of Diplomatico Reserva and El Derado 15 for sipping just to switch it up every now and then.

i think you are refering to Ron del Barrilito, which i like by the way but tastes completely different to the Abuelo range.

I prefer the 7yo Abuelo a tad over the 12yo which seems a little bit too dry and woody to me. A bottle of the Centuria is still waiting for a special ocasion, somebody visiting Bavaria the next time ? 001biggrin.gif

Never heard of it, and I like dry rums.

Favorite sipper is still Barbancourt 8 Yr.  Bought a bottle of Kirk n Sweeney 12 recently and while good, it's not what I was hoping for.

Yeah, I also like Barbancourt, and consider it more cognac-like, if that makes any sense. I find Zacapa and the like much sweeter - good all around drinkers.

Diplomatico Reserva or The Reserva Exclusiva?  What' s the difference?

On the Ron Abuelo, if you like very dry rums, it's not bad.  There are others with much more flavor and smoother.

El Dorado 12 is nice and so is Zaya.
