3. Ron Abuelo Centuria

If you want to really impress/take care of that rum drinker on your Christmas list, you can’t do much better than the limited Centuria edition of Panama’s Ron Abuelo. Produced in 2008 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sugar plantation where it’s produced, Varelaย Hermanos in Pesa, Ron Abuelo (No. 3 on Eddie STATS’ recent Toppa Top 10 rums list) retails for $130/750 ml bottle (this place appears to have it for $99). Relatively speaking here, that’s a deal for the quality you’re getting. This isn’t cocktail-mixing rum: it’s the stuff your grandpa broke out the day he announced his retirement.
