The 8year old Santiago de Cuba is a typical Cuban,immadiately recognizeable.Richer then the Havana Club 7Yo,almost same price,worth a try. I prefer sweet,rich,molasse-based rums,this one is great but as i said,a light cuban style,more like a whisky with a hint of butterscotch
I like this rum as I find its taste to be different from other rums. It's not groundbreaking or anything but a very solid cheap rum.
Sugar: 5 gpl. Similar to the Atlantico from the DR but not as sweet. Fairly smooth rum with tastes of butterscotch and vanilla. It's not overpowering or complex in flavour or aroma and that makes it an excellent rum for mixed drinks and is also a sipping rum if desired but there are so many good sipping rums that I would keep this as a mixer.
This rum is currently one of the best buys (value) you can get in Cuba. Does not sell internationally thus lacks the fame of the HC. However, I personally find it second to the HC7 but superior to all the younger HC siblings. Really good mixer and even a sipper for drinkers that don't mind a bit of the harshness in the afterburn that usually comes with Cuban rums. Not very complex like ED family but again for the ~10CAD (~8CUC) that costs in Cuba you just cannot do better. I cannot wait to try the more aged versions of it.
Kleur: licht bruin
Aroma: karamel, hout.
Smaak: typische rum, gebeurt niet veel. Hout, tabak, vanille.
Prima prijs/kwaliteit (€14) voor met cola. Puur ook goed te doen.
