Recommendable to most
Excellent Cuban rum with notes of exotic fruits, caramel, vanilla, coffee and tobacco. The vegetable side is also present. The wood remains discreet. On the palate, there is sweet notes of exotic fruits like mango but the alcohol is still present. It is more robust than the Malteco 15 years tested at the same time. Chocolate notes are also present. Very good rum, more virile. Real rate : 7,5
Many thanks to Joola69 for sharing this with me as part of a rare rum exchange (you can't buy Cuban rums in the US).
Smells and tastes of molasses, tobacco, chocolate, and caramel (but not much sweetness). Really easy drinking and smooth.
After searching for a bottle of Edmundo Dantes 15 year in Havana for 3 days, there was not a single bottle for sale. Luckily I tried it twice at a local restaurant and what a find indeed! So smooth, very nice vanilla, toffee and tobacco flavors and hardly any burn at all. August 2018 update: Managed to locate 1 bottle of Edmundo Dantes 15y from Vinoble in Skanderborg. Spectacular rum when enjoyed the second time, now the entire bottle and not just 2 drinks at the restaurant.

Enjoyed this rum only once at a restaurant in Havana....very difficult to find even in Cuba. Its small batch, unique and very mature taste-- a typical top shelf Cuban rum. If you can find it, worth warehousing a few bottles...
But for a 80 € bottle i expect a nicer bottle with a cork. But the rum is nice, tabaco and toffee or chocolate. And a very little burn.
