Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
unfortunately it s removed from the menu because the price increased 30%, substituted with another cuban, the havana club 3
The nose is quite similar to the Santiago de Cuba Anejo, but less prominent, waft of aged French calvados and vanilla, the taste is sweet, spicy, yet smooth, light, with a some of vanilla and lime, maybe a slight hint of tobacco, the finish is mildly spicy, again with a bit of tobacco. When mixed, it is a bit tamed mixer, the calvados-like taste gets lost a bit with coke, but it does not spoil any drink either. It is smooth enough to be consumed straight, but there is too little entertaining traits to be considered a sipper per se. For the price same as Captain Morgan, you get way much higher quality. Havana Club still wins against this one in its mixing value though.
On it's own its not that interesting, but considering the price you wouldn't expect it to be.
The aroma is mild with discrete notes of vanilla and pineapple, the flavour is sweet with notes of citra fruits and pineapple.
It's definitely not a sipper, but okay to mix in cocktails. It does not bring too much in cocktail either, alcohol with some fruity and vanilla aromas. If drunk pure it might bite tongue a bit, but is kind of smooth for throat.
It's cheap and goes well in mojitos :)
I really do not prefer white rums and this is one of the worses that I tried. Aroma is not that bad with hints fruit and sugar cane. Taste is from the start sweet and fruity but finish is very harsh and taste like vodka to me. Horrible.
Had a glass of Santiago de Cuba white rum while vacationing in Cuba. This rum is not “clear” as most white rums but far better than other white rums I have tasted in the past.
Quite sweet and smooth. It makes a decent daiquiri however it really doesn’t contribute a great deal of personality and the smoothness means that it can get lost unless you are heavy handed pouring your measures.
If you can find it on special then buy a bunch and give yourself 45ml nips.
you’ll be pleased you did.
Vyborny rum do miesanych drinkov, kde drahsie a lepsie rumy je skoda a tento je urcite lepsi ako Baccardi alebo Morgan...
I only drink rum with coke. This is also a mixer, but more smooth than bacardi. It taste is very fruity, for me too much. I think it's a good one in tropicalcocktails instead of coke.
Has all the elements of good light cuban rum: fruitiness, some grassiness, sugar cane syrup and light alcohol kick.
Lacks some of the oakiness of havana club 3 but overall very good value mixer.
