Now this is some good stuff
Being Cuban and visiting Santiago de Cuba has his privileges, I've tasted many Cuban and other country's Rum but I have never tasted a Rum so perfectly balance than this one. Is pure vanilla and burnt wood with a punch but it will last 3 seconds, NO alcohol after taste simply incredible highly recommended Rum.
Experimente los sabores en capas ricos y suntuosos de este 11 años con notas sutiles de vainilla, madera añeja un toque dulce de miel y un excepcional final suave. Se disfruta mejor solo a temperatura ambiente acompañado por un vaso alto de agua con gas. Beba el agua primero, para apreciar los complejos sabores de este 11años que es mas que solo un numero no hay palabras el costo versus la calidad es unica lo malo es lo dificil de conseguir en la isla de cuba
This is one of the Rums who I drink more, than it is not so Price like the other one from Santiago but the Quality and experience is (almost) the same. This is my favorite!
Lovely color with so many complex flavors. I also had Plantation 20 and Plantation Stiggins (today) to compare it too. Noses well, but tastes amazing.Molasses, dark brown sugar(almost burnt).. Delicious! Would buy a case if I could!!
With out doubt, one of the best rhum ambassadores from Cuba. A liquor that is an exhiliated from this modern trend that makes rhums tasting like brandys or cognacs. This is old school as it finest. If you can grab a bottle. Take care because there's a lot of copies coming out from the island.
The handicap, there's no stock of it anymore. Now you have to go for the 12 YO.
I had many trips to Cuba and always enjoyed Havana Club 7 yo. Up until now I did not try anything else except Cuban rum. Once I've brought from there Santiago de Cuba 11yo and have found it so smooth and delicius compared to HC. Since then I've discovered world is full of different rums ). Had tried 12 of them so far. And I will rate them comparing to HC as the base rated 6.
Got the pair of 12yo plus 11yo from friend of mine. Tasting them both at the time.
The differenses are subtle, still noticible. 11yo more fruity, 12yo stronger, smoky and oaky. Aftertaste feels longer for 12yo. 11 is smother and sweetier.
The similarities are obvious: both are amazing, fantastic.
Viva Cuba! Rating them both 10.
Perfect warming drink after cold Canadian day (too bad I did not order the cigar)
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.
