Tasty, but not quite great

Rum má vůni vanilky a karamelu. Je chuťově čistý a bez zbytečných kudrlinek. Je to dobrý rum.

Smooth and spicy with a wooden pepper flavour.
Relatively high priced. Ideally for mixing.

Alkohol: 40 %
Původ: Kuba
Aroma: Plná, kořenitá vůně, kde ale první housle hraje výrazná kůže. Dále hřebíček a skořice. Stylově se blíží k Barcelo Imperial, tohle já můžu... (86 b)
Chuť: Středně plné tělo, Vánoční koření, v dochuti jemné tabákové tóny. Chuť vyznívá suše a kořenitě, sladkost zde budete hledat marně. (84 b)
Body: 85
Shrnutí: Koupil jsem na blind, o téhle značce jsem nikdy neslyšel. Celkem slušný rum, který nezklame ani neurazí.Fotka trochu zkresluje barvu, ve skutečnosti byl světlejší.

OK for the money. Nothing to write home about though.

Amber colour rum in a plain bottle. Taste the caramel but it is not sweet. Inoffensive but not outstanding

Caramel and vanilla in the aroma, first sip quite strong, second sweet caramel, short tail.

Unimpressive packaging, but this is the one and only downside of otherwise well crafted, smooth, unadulterated rum, which tastes better than I would expect from a 10y old. Complex, with the nose of leather, hint of tobacco, ending with citrus fruits and apple juice, toffee taste which melts into fruity and spicy tones, a bit of vanilla, then comes a mild oak, then a decent and rather dry aftertaste. All smooth, balanced, light but complex, not too little and not too much. This rum, made in Cuba, is a true pleasure to drink. Zero sugar added, which for me is always a plus.

Nose of vanilla and brown sugar. Taste of fudge, vanilla and a bit oak. Expected too much sweetness but it is not the case. Not a long finish, but a decent rum to a fair Price as I got it on sale for around 35$. I would buy it again.

Solid rum but price is too high... in this price range is much more better rums like presidente 19y, abuelo 12y and so on...
But it is smooth, not that sweet with aroma of sugar cane and wood: In mouth you can feel caramel, oak and sugar cane. Not bad at all but overpriced.

Got this as a present. It has got a strong alcohol smell and what a pitty that the taste isn't fantastic either! I just can't rate this one higher than a 5. Not my kind of rum!

Ron Cubay rums are reIatively inexpensive. I actually enjoy the younger Rums in the Ron Cubay line better. This offering is good, different than the younger, but not to my preference. I wish we could buy the brand in Canada.
