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.
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.
Tried this in a dark 'n' stormy and it was really nice.
Not a very unique taste, but mixes really well.
Might adjust the score after trying it neat/with coke.
very tasty cuban rum, not as dry as most of them. Bought it in Cuba for so little money I would give it a 7 for the good value but it would be not real. Its tasty but I liked Caney Cenuria for example more than this and both are cheaper cuban rums.
se simte ca a stat in butoi, are un miros lemnos. are ceva nuante de caramel si vanilie. totusi e un rom ieftin si nu poate emite prea mari pretentii.
Tobacco and perhaps vanilla... not overly sweet and is a solid mixer for the price. If you want a good cuban rum leave the Havana Club on the shelf and grab a bottle of this. It's sold everywhere on the island and very well liked by the locals!
Best Cuba Libre you'll likely taste.
Actually not bad.
Its much better then expected.
Very good drinkable.
Mid sweet mid burn.
Price not high.
Strange but not bad at all
Zatim jsem asi neprisel na chut Kubanskym rumum. Tento rum nedokazu presne charakterizovat, ale citim na pozadi chut jodu. Je kazdopadne za zajimavou cenu.
Very smooth and easily hides in a cola mixer. My go to rum when I'm sitting on the beach while visiting my favorite Caribbean island.
This lacked in a little complexity for me, reminded me of a less sophisticated/complex Havana Club dark ,very good for the price
Ancien fief de Bacardi,santiago de cuba fait pour moi le meilleur rhum pour le cuba libre. Son gout est unique sur un boisé très particulier. A boire mélangé uniquement car un peu jeune et âpre pour le boire sec. Une dose de ce nectar pour trois doses de cola et un quartier pressé de citron vert. Un ptit morceau d'Orishas dans les oreilles et bienvenue à la havane!
My absolute favorite middle class rum, I like it much more than anything from Havana Club.
At this price tag you barely find anything better. Smooth, bit sharp taste and then warm feeling when you swallow whole sip. Just gorgeous. Whenever I see a bottle in my local store I must buy one.
The 8year old Santiago de Cuba is a typical Cuban,immadiately recognizeable.Richer then the Havana Club 7Yo,almost same price,worth a try. I prefer sweet,rich,molasse-based rums,this one is great but as i said,a light cuban style,more like a whisky with a hint of butterscotch
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.
