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.
There are a lot of similarities to the cubaney centenario. This one is younger, it's not that balanced, you can say it from the taste and smell. But it's still a bargain.
Smell: burned sugar, oak, dry fruits, some orange, spice, sherry
Taste: caramel, sherry, burned sugar, oak with apricots (or old wood), spieces, some gum
Finish: middle long, spicy
Sherry in the aftertaste and cherry compot
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.
By far one of the most great rum I have ever drink ,
Amber color , fist flavour to the nose is sweet , after you could discover vanilla,caramel, fruit like orange,cherry and oak.All balanced almost perfect !
Density in glass correct, heavy mark in the glass after stir .
In the mouth is soave, very soft start with light sweet but immediately the oak and the fruit explode one next to the other, but when you swallow ....in that moment the orgasm is coming !
Price vs quality one of the best ever
Nice warm and heavy aroma. Taste is full well ballanced between sweet, dry and wood. Body with more layers (average complex) ending in longer pleasant complex aftertaste. Very nice surprise for good price (40Eur)
Wood and toffee notes goes down smooth a tiny bit too sweet for me but nothing outrageous. Would drink it happily if there’s no ron abuelo, zafra, or dos maderas around
