I had very high expectations around the Cubaney Exquisito 21 year old Grand Reserve XO rum, but in actuality the Cubaney 15 year is smoother and more flavorful. It seems that the 21 year old rum has turned too dry, almost a cognac like flavors, instead of the typical aged rum flavor profile. I would compare the Cubaney 21 year old rum to be pretty close to the El Dorado 21 year old rum, both are very dry and their younger siblings are much tastier option.

Cubaney is in my opinion value for money. This rum is even though at their higher price end, no exception! You get it alle, great nose, sweet first impression that opens up to more advanced flavours and then rounds it up with a smooth goodbye.

The aroma is very nice and brimming with toffee and rounded oak. The palate is sweet with a light toffee body followed by a spicy tingle and light wooden flavours with a long and smooth afterburn. Though it's a bit pricy considering the fireworks, I like it a lot. It's very pleasant with some complexion to boot.

Není špatný v chuti je cítit mandle a drevitost možná trochu čokoláda.

Smooth, flavorful, burned sugar, oak. Greatest 21years rum for the money! The newest bottle(more exclusive than this) is 10/10 too.

Vona je prijemna, jemna. Citit dub ale aj ostrejsie tony skorice. Chyt vyvazena jemna ku koncu ostrejsia. Duchut dlha. Prijemne popijanie.

A younger Cubaney solera with 21years. This rum has many similarities with cubaney centenario. I think this is the same solera, just younger.

The smell is quite intensive with burned sugar, cherries and gum. A typical combination of flavors that you get from a rum with a long aging in sherry casks.
This one is younger, it's not balanced like Cubaney Centenario.
But you can already imagine what Centenario tastes like. I also have a association with Unhiq XO (because of the gum with cherrries - I love this red rubber rings).
The taste starts with caramel, some peach ice tea, sherry, cherries and burned sugar. I get also some wood with apricots, it's like a moldy wood from an old celar. It has just 38% but the taste is quite strong.
In the middle I get spice and earth, this rum fights back. Then apricot, white oak, sherry and cherries with some gum. And the the party is over, I get again the spice, dry mandarine peels and cherries.
The aftertaste is with sherry notes and cherry compote. Some apricots with white oak is also there.

I would rate this one with 79 points.

Smell: burned sugar, oak, cherries and some gum, dry fruits, spice, sherry

I really like his 18y brother so expectation was high. On the nose you can recognize typical Oliver aroma but is more woody than usually. Rum is nicely smooth and not that sweet with flavours of caramel, vanilla, plum and mainly oak. This one has bigger body and longer ending than his 18y brother. Really great.
