Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Ron Cubay Carta Blanca is made in Santo Dominco, Villa Clara (the centre of Cuba) by Cuba Ron S.A, which also produces Havana Club. The rum is matured 3 years before bottling.
Ron Cubay rum production began in 1964, but it was only released for export in 2010. The rum is aged in North American White Oak Barrels.
I do not prefer white rums and this one is not exception. Not bad aroma of coconut and spice. But taste is very artificial to me, just hints of oak and spicy finish. It could be good for mixed drinks.
Too sharp on it's own, but mixes well enough. Forgetable.
Tried the Ron Cubay Añejo and Carta Blanco back-to-back while vacationing in Manzanillo Mexico. Very basic bottle and label design. Very strong alcohol smell, strong alcohol taste and strong burn if enjoyed neat. Mix it with your favorite soda and down it goes!
Sampled the Ron Cubay selection at their stall at Rum Festival Cardiff on the weekend.
This is a decent Cuban white rum aged for 3 years. It's spicy and sweet on the nose. Fresh and firy on the palate. A quality white that's easily comparable to Flor de Cana 4. Perfect for cocktails!
For mojitos only. Given to me by a friend in Cuba.
I received a bottle as a gift when in Cuba and I really appreciated it. It's perfect to man up Legendario or Cacao liqueurs. I use about 2 liqueur to 1rum and the Carta Blanca lets the flavor really come through while cutting the sweetness.
Un buonissimo carta blanca con qualcosa in più del soliti rum bianco-dolci, forse una nota di arancia.
Simple bottle and the name, quite a good rum with orange flavor. It's not necessary to talk about the aftertaste. I bought it for $ 7, buy a few more in reserve.
Try it once in mojito in Cuba - was ok but nothing more.

I found this a bit rounder than the default Mojito rums (Havana Club, or Bacardi).
It's actually not that bad on it's own either, though definitely best in a mixer.
