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.
Easily consumable in a bind
Smell and taste from my perspective is identical to HC3. It is by the way produced by the same company. The alcohol bite is subjectively tad lesser, the ABV is 38% which is 2% less than HC3, but maybe I am just imagining this. There is the classic taste of tobacco, white oak, leather, vanilla, which excels in variety of mixed drinks ranging from Cuba Libre, through Mojito, to Pina Colada. Versatile white mixer for a bargain.
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.
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.
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.
