Panama. Ron Abuelo Centuria Reserva de la Familia 750ml. 80 proof. Free shipping.
Centuria is limited-edition bottling meant to mark the more than century-long tradition of its producer Varela Hermanos, which was founded in 1908. The rum is a blend of spirits especially selected from the "reserva de la familia" of the company's solera system. It includes rums as old as 30 years in the blend. The solera system is labor-intensive pyramid stacking of barrels in which rums are consistently cycled through, blending with older spirits as they go.
"The dark mahogany color and rich viscosity suggest long aging in a solera system of white oak barrels, imparting aromas of caramel and smoky wood, vanilla and sherry. Initial flavors of butterscotch and warm wood lead to a complex and well rounded palate of molasses, dry fruits, vanilla, leather and spices. The finish is very long lingering, semi-dry and peppered with oak." - Robert Burr, Rum Examiner
