Rum tasting in Tampere with my good old friend continued with Bristol Cuban 12y Sancti Spiritus 2003 Edition. Nice old school bottle and label design. Light golden color. Smooth and easy going to the nose and palate when neat sipped. Very nice mild ending.
Sweet with little to none burn, mellow with hints of undistinguishable fruits. I can understand how someone would like this one. But for me, there is 43 percents and no body. If you're in soft rums, this is way to go, otherwise pass...
This is a little stronger than my usual favourites, but after a small drop of water, it turns into a smooth drinkable and very tasty rum. I will be trying a lot more of Bristol Classic Rums, they have got me out of the small circle of sweet rums I was used to, thanks!!
Light gold color with fruity notes of date and fig, vanilla and also smoky notes as well as sandalwood. On the palate, it is very greedy on cinnamon and licorice. Nice rum.
