Sancti Spiritus, what could be better to kill devils.
I was curious to taste a real cuban rum, because Cuban rums don't have good reputation in rum scene.
The first thing I get in the nose is a sour note with pepper. Like pickeled pickles with pepper, followed by wood and vanilla.
The taste starts watery, it was diluted too much IMHO. First aromas are from Panama, paper followed by vanilla and citrus. In the middle you get peppery note and more intensive with flavors like salted prune, banana. But there is also a bitter note, I think it was stored to long.
This rum is like a mix of Panama (peppery) with Jamaica and Trinidad (medical note) rum. Not bad at all, but I think it has more potential.
If you like Panama rums, maybe you would enjoy it. Otherwise don't waste your money on it.
Nose: pickled pickles, pepper, citrus, white oak and vanilla, some plants/herbs
Taste: watery start, paper (like Panama rum), citrus, vanilla, salt
Middle: pepper, bitter note, vanilla, salted prune
Finish: spice, medicine, bitter note, salted prune, banana, honey (that's tasty)
Aftertaste: white pepper, honey, bitterness, salted prune, anise, peppermint
Value (66€): 3/5
Rum tasting with my old buddy in Prague. Continued onwards with Kill Devil Cuba Sancti Spiritus 18y. Unique bottle and label design. Golden color. Pure Rhum Agricole method to your nose and palate. Super dry burn at the end. Sweet ending but you still get the burn.
This is what Cuban (multicolumn) Rum tastes like unless it is sweetened and adjusted with sherry etc. It is a golden delight, tasty even if a bit light, containing enough impurities (read: Flavours) to be truly enjoyable and honest. Dry - naturally, claro que si. Beat the living #¤"&& out of Bacardis and Havana Clubs. Amazing in comparison.
