Tasting notes
Notes by Erik Voskamp the Dutch Rum Ambassador.
Beautiful amber color with a nice reddish shining. The nose is complex, light, sweet but also spicy and very pleasant, The taste is surprisingly soft and light with butterscotch, freshly roasted nuts, slightly nutmeg, cinnamon and black pepper grains.

Drink suggestion.

Chi-Ho Ta from Dr. Rotterdam suggests a Treacle cocktail

45ml Abuelo 12
10ml mescal (Del Maguey Vida)
20ml of pear juice (nashi)
10ml thyme syrup
2 sprigs of lavender bitters-garnish: slice of dried pear and sprig of lavender.

Put a handful of ice cubes in a measuring cup.
Then add the thyme syrup, the mescal, the Ron Abuelo 12 años and the pear juice.
Finally the bitters and then stirring slowly until the ingredients are mixed and the moisture volume has increased by about 30%.
Take a rock glass and add a few ice cubes. Or completely beautiful, cut a customized ice block.
Pour out the measuring cup by a strainer or sieve in the rock glass.
Garnish with a sprig of lavender and a slice of dried pear.
