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.
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 .
