Purchased a bottle of Santiago de Cuba 11 yr Rum ($40 CUC) in May 2017. Bottle still intact and will update my review upon tasting.

UPDATE (2017-10-28):

I have had this bottle of Santiago de Cuba Anejo 11 year Rum in my cabinet for over 6 months and time has come to sample it. I must admit that my expectations are high, a result of reviews read on RumRatings as well as other websites. The bottle, labelling and overall presentation of this rum was enough to convince me that this rum (which is not available in my area) is a must to bring back from Cuba and a bargain price of $40.00 CUC (approximately $60.00 CAD).

After pouring and swirling about 75 ml in my sample glass, I notice the copper colour of the rum, which looks inviting. My initial nosing observation is that of disappointment as faint smells of sugar cane and spices are barely noticeable and underwhelming. I let the rum breathe for 10 minutes and the flavours are finally coming through with notes of toffee, butterscotch and oak.

The first sip was indeed enjoyable but the spiced taste was too prominent for my liking, overshadowing the flavours of toffee and caramel. This 40% ABV rum provides a light burn and the flavours remain on the tongue for several minutes.

I am indeed disapointed by this Cuban rum as it taste more like a spiced rum, therefore I am assigning a rating of β€œ6”. In my opinion the β€œSantiago de Cuba 12 year” rum is a much better and balanced rum.

Have had two bottles of this one for a while. Yesterday evening it was time to taste it.
The nose is spicy and smoky.
On the palate and during the finish is it possible besides this to detect coffee, toffee and hints of nuts and vanilla. The finish is quite long.
Overall a real good Cuban thats having no problem to defend its place in my rumbar.

Solid stuff - could do with a little more power say 45%
but still a keeper.

Smoke hints, deep amber color slight caramel taste, a great representation of a cuban rum.

The Santiago de Cuba 11 comes in beautiful dark color and with a tasty scent of raisin, roasted nuts and a bit of oak. It's rich and smooth in the mouth with very less alcohol. Perfectly balanced between condiment and sweetness. I never had anything comparable in this price range!

A wonderful smooth rum, with a great nose that just slides down, very unique and realize it is still the very first Bacardi recipe

It has that wood character on the nose that is typical of the "real" Cuban rums. I don't know if it's sweetened, but it's certainly not overly sweet. Some classical Spanish-style toffee and honey in the taste as well. Not for mixing with coke in my opinion (which was one of the reasons I bought it) - a Havana Club 7 years or even Especial will do you better for less money in that department.

This rum will knock you down! The wooden aroma and the cognac-like old taste will rock your senses to the moon amd back!

Tried the Santiago de Cuba 11 year old rum during my last trip to Havana and the most surprising fact with the smell and taste is that it's very close to the much more expensive 20 year old Santiago de Cuba. The 11 year old has traditional Cuban flavors and some burn at the end, and in a blind test you would not be able to make a difference between the 11 and the 12 year old rums. It is a very dry rum for sure.

This rum has a deep amber colour, and a pleasant sweet smell. It is a strong rum to sip, although not too alcohol tasting. The rum has a richness to it, although I can't say that it has a specific flavour profile of anything specific. It is a little sweet and makes a rum and coke with an unusual "depth" to it - You know you're drinking rum with this one.

The Santiago 11 years has an elegant amber colour. With a light caramel smell, you notice a slight woody scent. The sipping is smooth with a light wood taste with a light honey finish. This rum is a must. One of my favorites.
