Default Looking for Ron Abuelo Rums

I'm looking for Ron Abuelo Rums from Panama. Is there any place to order and acquire this spirit in the USA or can you get them from there shipped? They sound like a rum I would enjoy sampling. I would like to get a couple bottles is at all possible? Any help or advice would be cool....Remember I have some St Vincent Sunset Gold for trade

Hi...you can try Internet Wines and Spirits. They have a large selection of rum. You might get lucky.

Unfortunately they don't carry that one or a few others I am really searching for. I Do order a few things from them but really dislike ordering from them as I find them to be exceptionally slow and really RUDE! If I could get the same brands elsewhere I would never give them a penny of my money. Hey I'm Italian what can I say,lol!

Press Release from 2006: Abuelo 7, the newest spirit in the Ron Abuelo line will be rolled out to markets in Panama, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Bolivia and in several U.S. states including Florida, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Colorado, Georgia and the District of Columbia. Plans also are underway to bring it to rum enthusiasts in Spain and Italy.

No mention of California.

Try Shoppers Vineyard
http://www.shoppersvineyard.com/prod....asp?pID=32339

at $19.95 it's a real bargain

I'm Scottish so I love value for my dollar as well. I know what you mean by the customer service at Internet Wines. I ordered from them once and that was all it took....

You can get both from planetofwine.com. They have both the 5yr and 7 yr. I am sure you will enjoy these fine rums....I know I do.

I've had good luck with Shopper's Vineyard, very reliable, with the packages well protected, if that's a help.

Thanks for the help gentlemen. I will be ordering this weekend and report back on what I think of Ron Abuelo Rums, as I have wanted to sample and add these to my expanding collection for some time now.

I am still waiting on some Centenario Añejo Especial Rums I ordered off of ticoshopping.com out of Costa Rica. I hope all goes smooth as I would hate to lose good rum Anyone here ever order from them?

Since you live in CA, you may want to check Hi Times selection of Centenario rum. I know they ship in CA and carry the full line of Centenario Rums.
