Now this is some good stuff
It has that wood character on the nose that is typical of the "real" Cuban rums. I don't know if it's sweetened, but it's certainly not overly sweet. Some classical Spanish-style toffee and honey in the taste as well. Not for mixing with coke in my opinion (which was one of the reasons I bought it) - a Havana Club 7 years or even Especial will do you better for less money in that department.
bun! ciudat e ca prima data cand l am mirosit (si gustat ) m am dus cu gandul la crema de zahar ars (creme brulee) desi el tipa cat se poate de clar a afumat ) . in miros mi a parut prima data a fi ceva caramel, dupa n am mai reusit sa disting altceva in afara de fum si o oarecare dulceata .
este un rom afumat si sec care surprinde cu o oarecare dulceata ) , gustul este clar pentru mine de creme brulee ) , frumos ) .
alcoolul se simte binisor dar reuseste sa l disperseze , nu stiu cum reususte asta dar desi e persistent chiar spre final ramane dispersat ceea ce ofera o senzatie foarte placuta .
Postgustul este lung si ramane destul de fin dulceata dar extrem de insistent gustul de fum si o senzatie de foarte sec care poate deveni neplacuta la o consumatie mai intensa a acestui rom, nu cred ca as putea sa beau doar acest rom o noapte intreaga , dar este cat se poate de clar un rom bun )
este un rom care mi a dat batai de cap pt ca nu e chiar de 9 si totusi pare mai bun decat oricare rom am notat eu cu 8 pana acum, motivul pt care am pus 8.5 in paranteza in titlu, este nota pe care cred eu ca o merita .
Well balanced rum with significant tasted of burned caramel. Slightly accompanied with vanilla and cherries, but overall way too straightforward.
A very good rum. Smooth and delicious. Although considering the hoops you have to go through to get a bottle it did not meet expectations. There are other options that are just as good and may even cost less (and without the hassle). Hence, a strong 8/10 rating.
This rum is exceptional for his price tag. Prominent aroma of burned oak, people of Santiago told me that it is because the barrels travels from Santiago to other cities on rails and trains, so that the casks release more aromas in the journey. Truly a wonderful choice if you are wandering those sumptuous lands... rich and well rounded, with a long lasting afterburn and a characteristic licorice and fired up flavour that you’ll hardly forget, like Cuba...
