Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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!
This rum will knock you down! The wooden aroma and the cognac-like old taste will rock your senses to the moon amd back!
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!!
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)
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.
Il miglior ron cubano, rapporto qualità/prezzo eccezionali. Ron autentico, non la solita operazione di marketing
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
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.
Un gran añejo
Bättre än den 12 åriga, mer balanserad, njut den med en cigarr efter maten.
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.
I came across this rum while in Cuba. This seems to be the locals choice, with Havana Club relegated to a mixer only. This has a lovely taste, and the aftertaste is very pleasant and stays with you for a while. Best enjoyed with a cigar, but just as good on its own!
Had both the 11 year and 12 year. Hands down the 11 year rocks. I have someone bringing another bottle home next week
My all time favorite rum, discovered directly in Santiago de Cuba. Perfect taste, great finish and moments of joy when you end up your glass. Nothing for sweet rum lovers though
Had this gifted to me in Cuba by a local. It is very enjoyable on ice. A true Cuban rum that I enjoy.
Need to find where I can purchase more on my next trip to Cuba.
Very smooth with a berry (to me) aftertaste. Easy to sip, easy to love.
I have never been dissapointed when drinking any Santiago ron. I really "hear", "see" and "feel" Cuba when i am drinking this one. Perfect for any occasion.
Discover it thanks to our guide in Cuba. it is an amzing rum, the only downsize, it is almost impossible to find it outside cuba.
At our last trip to Havana we really enjoyed this 11 years old rum. Taste is full and rich. I have to admit it is really close to Santiago de Cuba 20 years rum but the price has a significant deference. It is since then essential to our bar at home.
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.
This is my everyday rum minus the everyday. Great Flavor. I prefer it on ice.
This is a dark and sharp rum. First time I tasted it I could almost smell the cigar that should have been there
This rum is best enjoyed with a friend and maybe a Cohiba. My buddy brought a bottle back from our trip to Cuba and I'm sure glad he did! Of course you never really drink it alone, Fidel entre nosotros.
