Now this is some good stuff
Tried the Santiago de Cuba 11 year old rum during my last trip to Havana and the most surprising fact with the smell and taste is that it's very close to the much more expensive 20 year old Santiago de Cuba. The 11 year old has traditional Cuban flavors and some burn at the end, and in a blind test you would not be able to make a difference between the 11 and the 12 year old rums. It is a very dry rum for sure.
This rum has a deep amber colour, and a pleasant sweet smell. It is a strong rum to sip, although not too alcohol tasting. The rum has a richness to it, although I can't say that it has a specific flavour profile of anything specific. It is a little sweet and makes a rum and coke with an unusual "depth" to it - You know you're drinking rum with this one.
The Santiago 11 years has an elegant amber colour. With a light caramel smell, you notice a slight woody scent. The sipping is smooth with a light wood taste with a light honey finish. This rum is a must. One of my favorites.
Le gout de cuba. Il est doux et surprenant. Je ne m'attendais a cette complexité venant de cuba. Un gout de miel et on sent la feuille de tabac. pour ne pas trop payer cher, il doit être acheté lors d un voyage.
The Santiago de Cuba 11 comes in beautiful dark color and with a tasty scent of raisin, roasted nuts and a bit of oak. It's rich and smooth in the mouth with very less alcohol. Perfectly balanced between condiment and sweetness. I never had anything comparable in this price range!
Smooth, delicate and equilibrated, yet opens with wonderful aromas. Great aftertaste and price for this quality. 8.1 pts.
