ABUELO RUM and Luis Garizábalo meet in Panamanian Gala
Thanks to Luis Garizábalo, we had the option of tasting the four rums in glass as well as in wooden containers as is traditionally used in the Colombian Caribbean hometown of mine, Barranquilla.
It is amazing how Colombian artisans can make almost anything you want, perfectly.
With time and patience they work magic with their hands. Love keeps them doing their favorite pieces. They are small, sometimes overlooked but this one time they made a very special occasion one of high glamour the perfect moment.
The delicious Panamanian Rums we tasted were the following. We include the Abuelo 7 years, with which we prepared ABUELO LIBRE, the newest in rum drinks inPanama.
Three rum curators from RON ABUELO, from VARELA Rums in Panama gave the initial taste and aromas they configure in production.
ABUELO NAPOLEON, is part of a new 15 YEARS finish Collection RUM, soon to be out in the market. Brown rum distilled from molasses. Aged 15 Cognac barrels flown in from France. New to the market in 2014, this 15 year old rum is the latest rum bottled under the Abuelo label. Almond, buttery notes with complex tannic flavors are amazing and new to the RUM palates.
