About Ron Abuelo 7 Años ($24.99):
A reddish amber colored Reserva Superior. Matured in small oak casks, the Abuelo 7 Años is a versatile selection for sipping, mixing, and with food pairings. Rounded and balanced with aromas of dates, raisins, and vanilla. In the mouth, there is light minerality with notes of fig, cinnamon, and dried fruit.
Ron Abuelo is produced by Varela Hermanos, a third-generation family-owned company that dates back to 1908 when Don José Varela established the first sugar mill in the town of Pesé in the recently formed Republic of Panama. The rums of Ron Abuelo are made at Hacienda San Isidro in Pesé (a small valley in the Azuero Peninsula).
