I've had Santiago de Cuba 11yo, 12, 20, anejo and extra Seco, and I liked all of them. Now it's aged min 8 years and again it's a pleasure to consume.
Easy aroma with hint of alcohol.
Oily, oaky, fruity and smooth on palate. Yota of alcohol burn. Absolutely on par with it's elder 11, 12yo brothers while being 2½ times more affordable.
Long, addictive aftertaste.
Bravo Santiago de Cuba!
Weird. Just had a sample of Angostura 1787 and this has the same floral sweetness about it that I've only ever come across before in Havana Club Especial. I bought it as an alternative to HC7 but it lacks the wood and tobacco that balances out the floral thing in that. As such, this is much more one dimensional and pretty much like the aforementioned HC Especial but much more expensive.
Hey, it's drinkable, which I wouldn't say about the Angostura, but it's not that great either.
Bought this on a recent trip to Cuba. This is a very versatile rum. It is not too expensive to mix and yet it is quite palatable straight.....if you like Cuban-Dominican rums.
It is not overly sweet nor does it have an alchohol aftertaste like many lower tier rums. It has a taste similiar to that of the 12 year old (my favorite), albeit not as pronounced. Living in Canada, l can only hope that the LCBO picks this up....
