Very mild smell, smooth going down but a bit of a bite on the back end. Upon further sips....the finish reminds me of tequila. I'm not a huge tequila fan so I lowered my rating from 7 to 6. A good conversation piece to have in the cabinet but overly great in my opinion. The finish really spoiled it for me.

Well, Cuban rum is not just cheaper members of the Havana Club lineup - up to 7y, all with pronounced tobacco and wood. This is quite different style, and after an initial "shock and awe" period, I discovered a very smooth (for its age and price) and tasty rum here. The nose is quite unusual for rum, it reminds me of aged French calvados, contains chocolate, cocoa, a hint of oak, the taste is spicy yet smooth, pretty straightforward, light, with a hint of vanilla and chocolate, maybe some tobacco, the finish is mild spices, with oaky Calvados, medium long, ending with a red wine dryness. It shares some similarity with Conde de Cuba 5y or 7y, but it is more crispy, spicy, well defined and quite a lot cheaper. It shares also some traits with Cubay Anejo, which is good news - Cubay Anejo is an embodiment of excellent Cuban rum for a reasonable price. I can sip it, it makes neat rum and coke, and for its price, some 20% more than Captain Morgan - it is just perfect. No sugar detected.

👀 Clear, deep amber colour .
👃🏻 honey, cinamon, some notes of orange, too. Woody.
👅Light, gently sweet. Orange, vanilla, wallnut and smoke.
Quite average rum which is good for parties or mixing for drinks. Relatively drinkable on its own too.

Just as the Havana Club Anejo Especial, a great choice for mixing, especially with coke. It's upper hand would be the price. A very safe choice.

An honest rum, too young to sip, good to mix, a regular Cuban.

Ebben az árban ez a legjobb választás annak aki még ismerkedik a rumokkal.

I had a taste test between this variety and the 11 year. There was not much to choose between the two which surprised me. The nod between the two foes to the 11 year, but if you consider value for the dollar go with this brand. Hence a 6/10 rating.

Santiago de Cuba Anejo
It is quite sweet on the nose and very pleasant. This Rum has a strong burn in the back of your throat at first. After the burn it is a nice rum. It kinda reminds me of a spiced rum. Considering the harsh alcohol burn this rum isn't for everyone, but considering the retail price (€16-18 in NL) you should definitely try it.

It's Havana Club's Anejo Especial's poorer cousin, close but no cigar. That said, It's still a very nice rum that I wouldn't say no to and much better than other rums in it's price range.
