Ron Cubay Anejo 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 7 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.
Tasty, but not quite great
I can see many reviews here referring to the sweetness of the rum which leads me to the conclusion that many mistakenly reviewed Cubay Anejo Suave which has some 30g/l of sugar and taste profile similar to Havana Club lineup instead of Cubay Anejo which is quite different and is not sweetened at all. Cubay Anejo is quite recognizably the younger brother of Cubay 10y. The smell, taste profile and aftertaste is similar to the 10y, although not so elaborated, but for the price it is more than I would expect. The nose is leather, oak and tropical fruits, ended with apple juice scent, the taste is smooth, toffee and fruits, with a bit of oak, aftertaste is mild toffee ended with a lovely spicy tobacco bite. This is balanced, unadulterated, light and for this money surprisingly smooth and complex rum.
I love the taste of this. More on the sweet side with just the right amount of burn. Typical liquorice and molasses flavours. Easy to get carried away with.
My expectations was not very high about this one but it is very solid rum. Similiar sweetness like diplomatico or legendario. Smooth with flavours of vanilla, honey and caramel. If you like sweet rums this is good and cheap choice.
Not a good aftertaste. Good smell tough. Cuban rums not as good as Panamanian or other south american rums. 37 ABV and kind of cheap quality.
This is a very nice rum on the rocks or as a mixer. Wish we could purchase this in Canada. Much nicer than the lower tier Bacardi, Appleton or Captain Morgan swill that the LCBO carries in Ontario.
Dostal som malu flasticku tohto rumu ako darcek z Kuby. Recenzie fajn tak som sa tesil ale prislo velke sklamanie. Vona nevyrazna a chut strasne alkoholova ktora prebijala vsetko ine. Tak do koly by stacil ale na vychutnavanie to nebolo. Mozno to bolo tym malym "darcekovym" balenim alebo tym ze som ho pil po Diplomaticu ale tak ci tak to bolo velke sklamanie.
This rum has a sentimental value for me, when I lived in Cuba and did not have the possibilities that I have now I used to drink it with my father every time we saw each other. Apart from that I think that for the cost it has is pretty good
