Tasty, but not quite great
Now we're getting somewhere! Legendario has aged a rum to perfection here. I haven't talked about the bottle yet but they have put some thought into the new design from the simple cylinder with nice feminine curves. The label shows a colonial port scene complete with rum barrels ready for export. What's in the bottle carries enough time in oak to be sipped neat... I wouldn't mix this with anything besides a little water to open the flavours and at the $60 I shelled out, a crime to mix anyway. Firesides chats and cigars will be enhanced by this rum. A 10 for smoothness and character and I have had similar rums at a much higher price.
I picked up a bottle of this rum last time I went to Cuba but didn't get a chance to try it until I got back home to Canada (I originally bought it because a local told me it was Cuba's 2nd most popular brand, and the price was great at 8 Cuban pecos). I really loved the sweet flavour and it mixed well with cola. Now I'm regretting not having bought more as I can't get it in Canada. I will bring home a few more bottles on my next trip to Cuba.
This was one of the first good rums I ever drank so I'm quite biased.
It's got a lovely aroma just reminds me of caramel or muscavado and wood.
The flavour is very much as it smells and really quite simple, very dark, a little sweet and some smokey wood flavours in the background.
Zatím nejlepší rum, který jsem pil. Nedivím se, že byl několikrát zvolen nejlepším Kubánským rumem. Jeden z mých favoritů, ač jsem to nečekal.
Really cheaper than other rums of the same age. Good price-quality relation, superior to what havana club has to offer for the same price. Heavy body, cuba libre essential.
Il Legendario Ron Añejo è sostanzialmente una versione più invecchiata del Legendario Ron Dorado, con la differenza che si tratta di un rum assai più difficile da reperire, non ai livelli di irreperibilità del Carta Blanca Superior o del Gran Reserva 15 Años, ma comunque non disponibile ovunque.
Ciò che lo rende interessante è che si colloca praticamente nella medesima fascia di prezzo degli altri rum Legendario, fatta eccezione per il Gran Reserva, e quindi si tratta di un prodotto generalmente assai economico rispetto ad altri rum della stessa categoria, il che non guasta affatto.
Come per il Legendario Dorado, al palato richiama molto il tabacco, ma ha anche note dolci di uva passa, melassa e, lontanamente, arancia, con un finale più secco, mentre l'aroma è fruttato e intenso, ma delicato, con toni di caramello.
