Now this is some good stuff
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...
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.
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)
De entrada: no es un ron complaciente ni suave, es un ron del oriente de Cuba así que está hecho para los que más saben apreciar la intensidad de un ron. A mi me gusta especialmente precisamente por ser un ron muy tradicional, nada de los inventos esos que se ven en rones más famosos y a los que no les cabe un aditivo más.
De hecho, hice un artículo en un blog al que me invitaron y hablé precisamente del Ron santiago de Cuba, si quieren pueden verlo aquí
En resumen, un ron para los que quieran disfrutar de la escencia del ron cubano.
Nice a bit abvish vanilla sugar cane sweet nose. Gentle sweet start to a bit abvish body and caramel sweetness at end. Vanilla oaky roasty body and end.
