De lo mejor que probado De Santiago de Cuba, ron balanceado, dulce y sin tanto sabor a madera como el 11 años
Mooi gerijpte en straffe rum
Lekker voor puur drinken
Let it rest for a while and it blooms. Fruity, smooth and nice, but still not top of the line.
Synes faktisk 12eren er bedre og mere blød. Helt klart mit favorit mærke fra Cuba, men der er selvfølgelig langt op til 25eren :-)
Smells like cherry cola with a hint of cinnamon. Some tobacco on the palate. Easily recommendable as a sipper.
It's an 8 rum to be sure, but just not quite my flavor profile. 7+
Good dark tasty rum
Make no mistake. This is a very decent rum. I always keep a bottle of SdC 12 year at home and it's always quick to dissappear. It's a rum for many moods as it combines a bit of party with a bit of late night sipping. Slightly sweet with lots of ripe fruit and some licorice, balanced nicely by oak - but not too much oak: you want your rum to be aged, you don't want it be an old man that had all the liveliness sucked out of him by an oak cask, in my opinion. Rum should sparkle. In short: one of the best Cubans and frankly underrated.
Tried the Santiago de Cuba 12 year old rum during my last trip to Havana and the most surprising fact with the smell and taste is that it's very close to the much more expensive 20 year old Santiago de Cuba. The 12 year old has traditional Cuban flavors and some burn at the end, and in a blind test you would not be able to make a difference between the 11 and the 12 year old rums.
Ce rhum cubain n'a rien de particulier, pour une bouteille à ce prix passez votre chemin. Note boisée sur la fin
Very tasty smell of caramel, brown sugar, eventually oak, and some sharp underline. On the palate is taste caramel again, a bit of toffey and flowers. Very light and not long lasting. Not bad but also not extraordinary.
Very nice rum. Smell get you strong notes of dark sugar and caramel, and something else I could not find, maybe wooden.
Then tasting you find again the same, and the whole is sweet but not too much like most Rons.
Overall good with a great potential, looking forward to try the 20y.
Rhum de cuba par prédilection
Note de caramel foncé , sucre brun et une finale juste un peu boisé vraiment excellent comme rhum cubain très doux ..
Ikke lige min kop rom. Mangler sødme, men smager fint
Tried this at the 2017 Manchester Rum Festival and its quite a step up from the Anejo. Would not mix this as its def meant for sipping. Its a bit heaver in taste (not in proof) compared to your acerage Cuban rum. Nice enough flavour, but not something very remarkable.
Very lovely ... Decent price point lovely bottle ...nice sample lovely rum
Picked up a bottle of Santiago de Cuba Extra Anejo 12 yr Rum ($50 CUC) during a recent trip to Cuba. While there, I tried several low end Rums (but no premium offering) at the all-inclusive resort but this is the first premium Cuban Rum I taste. Wow, after initial notes of cherries and molasses, I tasted some licorice along with caramels flavours with just the right amount of oakiness. This Rum is very smooth and has a profile that is completely different to any other Rum I have tasted so far. A most pleasant addition to my liquor cabinet.
a very good Ron for his Age. Smooth & sweet taste.
It's got oak. It's got a touch of smoke. Just a little sweet at the start. It also has a touch of bitterness at the finish, which is long. I can see this paired with a nice cigar. This feels like what other Cubans I've tasted should try to come closer to.
My introduction to aged rum after a trip to Havana. Smooth with a strong licorice backbone. Goes great with cigars. Love this stuff, wish I had bought more. Far superior to the Havana Club 7 year, not even a comparison.

Better version of Santiago de Cuba rum but not the best choice
Experimente los sabores en capas ricos y suntuosos de este 12 años con notas sutiles de vainilla, un toque dulce de miel y un excepcional final suave. Se disfruta mejor solo a temperatura ambiente acompañado por un vaso alto de agua con gas. Beba el agua primero, para apreciar los complejos sabores de este ron que no tiene nada que pedir
I like this rum, buts blind taste against other similarly priced rum then it would not come out on top. Good not great
Not smooth for a 12 year old one bottle
Funny to define this one, I've been sipping for a while and no real distinct flavours jump out at me. Definitely a sweet floral nose, then initial hazelnut taste with a little short spicy kick. Interesting how it finishes very dry, I'm guessing whisky lovers would like this, but not my personal favorite
