Now this is some good stuff
Wow, I like this one a lot. Awesome nose and taste, a long lingering finish. Not just sweet, I also sense a bit of soy, which gives a lovely contrast. A keeper!
Not a bad looking bottle to have on the bar. Really inviting nose with solid notes of muscovado sugar, camamelised and roasted nuts, cigar leaves, round oak and hints of liqourice and wooden lacquer. This one got things going on, but it feels well put together with all the notes meshing nicely.
The taste is bold and potent but retains a nice and semi dry elegance at the same time.
Notes of dark chocolat, mokka and well integrated oak flairs up in the mouth with a long finish, ending on spices and caramel.
There is a shade of sweetness to the taste but hydrometer tests show no sign of additives. This is definitely among the best cubans i'v had so far. The quality and characteristics would almost put this rum in the same ballpark as Appelton 21 and fleur de cana 25. Great.

Оценка - 9/10
This was my first SdC rum and I was very happy it was exactly this one. Extra aroma, extra taste. One of the best cuban-style rum.
A hint of licorice on the nose, nut and wood flavor, finish is sweet wood. It is all very subtle, as is the case with the high-end Santiago de Cuba series. There is a chance you won't instantly like it unlike the sweet Solera rums, but it is worth it.
I found the nose of brown sugar and light vanilla. Light on the tongue.After taste is vanilla with a feel of velvet. Smooth through out. Very light tabaco notes. Something worth a try. Lots of brown sugar after notes with a light burn.
