Tasty, but not quite great
This rum is very surprising for the price. It is my favourite on a regular day. I have it 1:1 with Sprite or 7up. It is smooth and the ending is honey sweet. It is unique. I come back from Cuba with at least one bottle each time.
Santiago de Cuba Anejo, really good choise, this is good quality for that money.
Very smooth taste, nice color. Good with ice or stright up.
It smells like green foliage in the heat, black pepper and sugar cane. After trying quite I noticed that the taste is not impressed - roundness, bitterness, sweetness (vanilla, caramel, bitter).
Souffle is perfect as a snack.
This is one of the cheapest rums around but at double the price would still be great value. Smooth with a rich honey colour and hints of tropical fruit flavours and tobacco. This is wasted with mixers. I like it with just ice, soda or plain water.
So based on the higher ratings on here i went for the much cheaper Anejo. Smelt like a weak nail polish remover , hints of honey and caramel but nothing too pleasant. Tasted better than i thought it would , dry , quite sweet but had a bit of an unpleasant aftertaste.. But as i bought it as a mixer i hoped it would improve with a quality Fever Tree cola... it didn't ! Even my daughter remarked that this wasn't up to my normal "standard" rums.. So wont be buying again and will probably give the 12 yr a wide berth !
C'est un vrai coup de coeur alternatif à Havane Club.
Très belle couleur dans le verre, puis des arômes très nets de vanille bourbon, bois de chêne.
Pas de feu en bouche, douceur, court mais très plaisent.
Un bon rhum pour mélanger
...den man sowohl pur trinken als auch mischen kann. Nicht ehr üß aber leider ist er geschmacklich sehr schwach und kurz im Abgang. Der 12er ist um ein vielfaches besser, höher hab ichs in Cuba damals nicht geschafft.
Colour- caramel brown with light Amber flashes
Taste- vanilla notes with a slight hint of banana
Uses- perfect for cocktails but can also be drunk on the rocks in the sun while dreaming of sandy beaches
I first tried this rum as most people do in Cuba its available everywhere there, therefore its hard for me to rate it and not think of lovely warm beaches beatiful friendly people, oh and proposing to my wife, I was worried that when i bought a bottle put it in my case it would metomorphosize on the plane into undrinkable piss water like most holiday drinks do, but much to my pleasure it was still just as nice at home it is not a world beater but a great mixer and a good conversation starter.
