Save the date: October 18 for a very special and exclusive rum tasting event featuring the new Abuelo XV Cask Finish Collection.
A limited number of spaces are available for serious rum enthusiasts at Jensen’s Liquors, 1646 SW 27th Ave near Coconut Grove. This is a special presentation and guided tasting event by Robert Burr, publisher of Robs Rum Guide and host of the Miami Rum Festival and Trade Expo.
“I am delighted to share my knowledge and admiration for these fine aged rums from Panama, each finished in an exquisite special cask for enhanced complexity and depth of flavor,” said Robert Burr. “Theses 15 year old rums, finished in Tawny Port, Oloroso Sherry and Napoleon Cognac are a testament to the talents and abilities of the masters of rum at Abuelo. We’re delighted to be among the first to try these selections in the United States.”

Abuelo Añejo XV Años Tawny Port Cask Finish
Aromas of cocoa and tart berry over ripe dark fruit, butter cookie and mild wood. On the palate, sweet dark fruit leads to bitter chocolate Bon Bon and raspberry with bread pudding, fading into earthy wood and hints of cocoa in the long finish.
Abuelo Añejo XV Años Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish
Aromas of cacao and stone fruit with suggestion of herbaceous cane, vanilla custard and a hint of pear. On the palate, rich dark fruit builds to vanilla custard over musty wood and cola before aromatic eucalyptus and butter croissant precede a hint of cane and molasses in the long finish.
Abuelo Añejo XV Años Napoleon Cognac Cask Finish
Aromas of vanilla and musty bourbon oak lead to sweet fruit and pound cake with hints of green and black peppercorns over bitter wood. On the palate, a sweet caramel entry leads to bold cognac wood in the complex mid-palate, with a balance between sweet fruit and dry vanilla. The finish is wonderfully viscous, fading into echoes of honey, green banana and flowers.
