Aroma: Plná, kořenitá vůně, kde ale první housle hraje výrazná kůže. Dále hřebíček a skořice. Stylově se blíží k Barcelo Imperial, tohle já můžu... (86 b)
Chuť: Středně plné tělo, Vánoční koření, v dochuti jemné tabákové tóny. Chuť vyznívá suše a kořenitě, sladkost zde budete hledat marně. (84 b)
Shrnutí: Koupil jsem na blind, o téhle značce jsem nikdy neslyšel. Celkem slušný rum, který nezklame ani neurazí.Fotka trochu zkresluje barvu, ve skutečnosti byl světlejší.
Opravdu výrazné aroma. Vanilka, cukr. Neštípe, hezky voní. Neurazí ale nejde o extra první ligu.
This one hit the spot with me. Taste and smoothness were just what I like. Since it was a gift and Cuban I have no idea of the cost which is a third factor I always consider. So I have to go with my first 2 criteria and give it an 8
OK for the money. Nothing to write home about though.
Amber colour rum in a plain bottle. A gentle reminder of vanilla before you sip. Taste the caramel but it is not sweet. Inoffensive but not outstanding
Caramel and vanilla in the aroma, first sip quite strong, second sweet caramel, short tail.
Unimpressive packaging, but this is the one and only downside of otherwise well crafted, smooth, unadulterated rum, which tastes better than I would expect from a 10y old. Complex, with the nose of leather, hint of tobacco, ending with citrus fruits and aged calvados, toffee taste which melts into black tea with fruity and spicy tones, a bit of vanilla, then comes a mild oak, then comes long aftertaste with notes of black tea, cocoa and spices. All smooth, balanced, light but complex, not too little and not too much. This rum, made in Cuba, is a true pleasure to drink. Zero sugar added, which for me is always a plus. Considering the price, where after some searching on the market I am able to buy it for approximately the same money as Dictador 12y or El Dorado 12y or Appleton 12y, this is money well spent.
Nose of vanilla and brown sugar. Taste of fudge, vanilla and a bit oak. Expected too much sweetness but it is not the case. Not a long finish, but a decent rum to a fair Price as I got it on sale for around 35$. I would buy it again.
Solid rum but price is too high... in this price range is much more better rums like presidente 19y, abuelo 12y and so on...
But it is smooth, not that sweet with aroma of sugar cane and wood: In mouth you can feel caramel, oak and sugar cane. Not bad at all but overpriced.
"vanilla paired with honey, toffee and peaches..."
"Ron Cubay Reserva Especial rum review by Helen at A Mountain of Crushed Ice"
It has quite light bodied nose – nicely balanced.
"It’s not at all fiery – nice cocoa and chocolate sweetness, a little of the tarry “Cuban” notes. ."

Good mixer 7 out of 10
Smooth and spicy with a wooden pepper flavour.
Relatively high priced. Ideally for mixing.
