Ron 100 Fuegos 750ml
Ron 100 Fuegos is a delicate rum in which wooden notes of coconut and citrus, sweet cane, and toffee appear, on a background of very light smoked, leaving a clean and fresh mouth, turning it into a high-end rum.
Ron 100 Fuegos brand of rum that I’ve only recently come across goes by the name of Ron Abuelo. On the odd occasion I’ve heard its name crop up and seen the bottle in my hands, but never had the chance to give the liquid a go. But now I have! But before I share with you my tasting notes, let’s see how Ron Abuelo came about.
The history of Varela Hermanos, S.A (the company behind Ron Abuelo) dates back to 1908, when Don José Varela Blanco, a young Spanish immigrant, built in the town of Pesé the San Isidro Sugar Mill, the first sugar mill in the then recently formed the Republic of Panamá. In 1936, following the wishes of his three sons –José Manuel, Plinio, and Julio, Don José began the distillation of alcohol from sugar cane juice for the production of distilled spirits (the cultivation of sugar cane is the main activity for the 10,000 strong population).
In 1976, production was moved to the Don José Distillery. It’s here that the production of Ron Abuelo comes to fruition using 100% Panamanian Estate grown virgin sugar cane honey rather than molasses like most rums. It is fermented, distilled, and then aged in white oak bourbon casks.
Sharp on the nose with fruit and berry aromas coming through. Sharp beginning on the palate too, with a rich combination of vanilla, caramel, and citrus present. Rather short.
