Got the pair of 12yo plus 11yo from friend of mine. Tasting them both at the time.
The differenses are subtle, still noticible. 11yo more fruity, 12yo stronger smoky or smoky. Aftertaste feels longer for 12yo. 11 is smother and sweetier.
The similarities are obvious: both are amazing, fantastic.
Viva Cuba! Rating them both 10.
Perfect warming drink after cold Canadian day (too bad I did not order the cigar)
very underrated this Rum. Very nice for this Price!
en boca caramelo quedado cuero y vainilla en nariz dulce de leche color ambariño de final fuerte
Smooth and flavorful, not dry but not overly sweet. Great example of what the "taste" of a Cuban Style Rum is.
Tipico rum cubano ma con molta delicatezza in più. Molto ben fatto i sapori si amalgamano perfettamente. Va giù che è una bellezza. Ne troppo dolce ne dry, una via di mezzo perfetta. Si abbina perfettamente con un buon sigaro.
Notes of caramel, vanilla, fruits. Smooth. Tastes a bit better than Cubaney Centenario.
De lo mejor que probado De Santiago de Cuba, ron balanceado, dulce y sin tanto sabor a madera como el 11 años
J'ai acheté quelques unes de ces bouteilles en juillet 2004 ainsi que des Habana Club 18 ans.
Bien qu'il s'agisse d'un assemblage de vieux rhum allant jusqu'à 20 ans d'âge. Cet excellent rhum n'est pas un Habana Club mais pour la différence de prix, il était possible de lui pardonner.
Coûtait 60USD par rapport au Habana Club 18 ans à 85 ou 90USD.
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.
The best brand of rum from Cuba. Sharp not sweet but still really nice.
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.
Mooi gerijpte en straffe rum
Lekker voor puur drinken
Enjoyed a glass of Santiago de Cuba 25y while vacationing in Brussels. Semi dark color. High end bottle with a nice old fashioned label design. Very flavorful smell test. Nutty and so smooth on the taste test. Tiny amount of burn due to no added sugar but very mellow and pleasant experience. Taste lingers long afterwards when the burn has already dissipated. Definitely worth the 8 score.
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 ..
Best lekker, maar voor 12 jaar had ik er meer van verwacht
Very lovely ... Decent price point lovely bottle ...nice sample lovely rum
I wasn't expecting so much from this rum and the complexity of it. Well Cuban run which is good on its own.
Rich candy floss with caramel and acidity of grapefruit peel. Floral notes of maple syrup and coffee bean yet with a touch of toasted wood which isn't overly sweet.
Sweet baking spices, lightly oak and dry crispy crackers. It has fruitiness and tartness of plum/peach compote with red wine vinaigrette.
Buttery, maple syrup, pear, red grapes banana finishing.
Well balance liquid gold for a Cuban rum.
Synes faktisk 12eren er bedre og mere blød. Helt klart mit favorit mærke fra Cuba, men der er selvfølgelig langt op til 25eren :-)
This sweet ron from Cuba has a great reputation and now i can confirm it. The bottle is made with the plastic cork that helps the cocktail makers. The color is deep brown and the taste sweet but not too long ; thats a regret. The final taste is homogeneous and There is no bad effect with volatile alcool. I recommend that rhum especially due to the rate price/qualité.
this was a surprise find, as most peiple wanted Havana Club or the 25 year Rin Santiago. We found this extra añejo smooth, quite aromatic and hit the spot for us and the price/quality was the best part of all
Rich and dark with a nice smooth flavour. Worth the money
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.
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.
