Really enjoyed the Cubaney Gran Reserva 12 year old rum. Very hard to find in the US, and I hope I would get my hands into the 18, 21 or 25 year bottles since I would imagine them being massively better than the surprisingly tasty 12 year old. Close to Pusser's 15 year old on the flavor profile. Very nice after taste, but some burn at the end. My quest for the older versions of the Cubaney continues.

Pleasant copper colour with a bit of caramel and vanilla on the nose but which soon leaves to be replaced with bitter coffee and oak. Interesting and a bit different, but not really a keeper.

Užší a tažená do výšky láhev balená v papírové krabičce nepůsobí nijak exkluzivně. Ale přece jen, důležitější než balení je obsah dané láhve. Cubaney je na vůni hodně krotký, nic extra v ní nevyčnívalo, zmínit ale lze dubové tóny. Chuť není ničim výrazná. Má jemný, až plytký profil. Působí místy (v přechodu ke koncovce) až naředěným dojmem.Určitě u tohoto rumu člověk může zůstat celý večer, vypít celou láhev, ale neodnese si žádný zážitek. Ta chuť je prostě nijaká. Co se týká dominikánských rumů, existují rozhodně lepší a výraznější volby. Pokud je však cílem nalézt láhev, která uspokojí široké publikum bez toho, aniž by překročila očekávání, avšak zároveň byla pitelná pro všechny, je Cubaney Gran Reserva 12 vhodná volba.

The aroma of raspberry jam, dry herbs, oil paint. The taste is sweet, tart, watery, bitter. Long exposure in oak is tangible. It looks like old cognac.

Sweet aroma - caramel, honey, vanilla. Honey in the tip of the tongue, touch of alcohol in the middle, cinnamon and clove in the end.

The taste and smell reminds me of Relicario Superior (but without pronounced oak), Barcelo Imperial and other Dominican rums, mixed with Ingenio Manacas. The smell the best part, it is oak, leather and citrus fruits, mainly grapefruit, the taste is quite sweet, I guess there is some sugar added, oak, toffee, chocolate. The taste profile is smooth, but for me also a bit boring and unnecessarily sweetened. Aftertaste is prickly, something like dark chocolate and leathery, woody alcohol fading away. This rum is not bad, far from it, but if I take into account how many good rums are there in this price range, I cannot give it more than 6.

Nicht zu dunkel.
In der Nase Holz, Kirsche und Vanille. Kein Alkoholgeruch.
Im ersten Moment etwas scharf auf der Zunge. Feinwürzig, vollmundig, rund. Gut eingebettete Süße.
Langer, warmer Abgang.
Sehr guter Sipping Rum um den Preis.

Sweet, woody with little afterburn. Another variation of Oliver&Oliver.
Not bad, maybe 7,5 than 7, but there are so many better bottles around 8

Wasn't expecting much but quite a nice surprise ! Copper colour in the glass with notes of caramel , vanilla and spice. Only 38% and comes with a very cheap plastic screw top.
On a positive note it taste better than the presentation..
Sips easily but for me it makes a great cuba libre.. but be frugal with the cola as it's easy to drown the flavours. A very smokey element kicks in when mixed , I like it !

With solera system produced rum you probably expect bites of youngsters and they come at first, but only for very short period of time and are almost immediately substituted by the intensive flavor. The plate is similar to the nose; I have to say the rum is sweet and rich in caramel, but the other tastes of chocolate, vanilla and marzipan are also recognizable and very pleasant. The finish is expectedly smooth and durable.

I recommend the Cubaney 15 Gran Reserva to everyone who would like to try another solera experience; this is warming but smooth Dominican rum.
