Tasty, but not quite great
Very mild smell, smooth going down but a bit of a bite on the back end. Upon further sips....the finish reminds me of tequila. I'm not a huge tequila fan so I lowered my rating from 7 to 6. A good conversation piece to have in the cabinet but overly great in my opinion. The finish really spoiled it for me.
Sugar: 5 gpl. Similar to the Atlantico from the DR but not as sweet. Fairly smooth rum with tastes of butterscotch and vanilla. It's not overpowering or complex in flavour or aroma and that makes it an excellent rum for mixed drinks and is also a sipping rum if desired but there are so many good sipping rums that I would keep this as a mixer.
This rum is currently one of the best buys (value) you can get in Cuba. Does not sell internationally thus lacks the fame of the HC. However, I personally find it second to the HC7 but superior to all the younger HC siblings. Really good mixer and even a sipper for drinkers that don't mind a bit of the harshness in the afterburn that usually comes with Cuban rums. Not very complex like ED family but again for the ~10CAD (~8CUC) that costs in Cuba you just cannot do better. I cannot wait to try the more aged versions of it.
Kleur: licht bruin
Aroma: karamel, hout.
Smaak: typische rum, gebeurt niet veel. Hout, tabak, vanille.
Prima prijs/kwaliteit (€14) voor met cola. Puur ook goed te doen.
