Just went back from all inclusive vacation on cayo Guillermo, Cuba. That was full of sun, fun and sure of rum.
Even there was literally nothing included from the premium sorts the all those Anejos were fine and scored:
Santiago de Cuba Extra Anejo - 7
Cubay Anejo - 7
Santero Anejo Oscuro - 7
Havana Club Anejo Reserva - 7
Santiago de Cuba Extra Seco - 8
The Extra Seco (extra dry) has exceptional taste compared to all those spiced. Light in color, very dry and pretty smooth, I liked it a lot.
Sorts from bottom line are too sharp with pronounced alcohol and are OK for cocktails only:
Havana Club Ritual - 6
Havana Club Anejo Especial - 6
The choice for more matured sorts:
Cubay 10 - 8
Havana Club 7 - 8
Santiago de Cuba 11 and 12 (only in Cigar bar) - 10.
Bought in hotel store Cubay 1870 Extra Anejo - 9.
Its profile is very similar to Cubay 10 - just more smooth and somehow more complex.
What I bought home and did not try yet: Santiago de Cuba 20. I have to report that all the sorts were less expensive (10-15%) at hotel's store then at the airport. So that is not the duty free, but "extra duty" stores.
Finally, what was "window shopped" only (- USD):
Havana Club Tribute 2019 - 555
Havana Club Union - 420
Havana Club 15 - 195
Cubay 1870 Extra Viejo - 133
Selection de Maestros - 55
Pacto Navio - 55
Happy New Year!
Nice Cuban rum, fragrant with a slight sharpness, which softens if you leave the drink for 5 minutes. The smell of pepper, light caramel and honey. The taste is toffee, spicy oak and more vanilla. The finish is very long and offers another solid serving of vanilla.
Cognac, bright vanilla which is outstanding for Cuban rum. Thoughts go to feeling good barrel, honey. Very good sipper for good price.
Typical 7 year sweet Cuban rum flavor,very smooth, with the last couple years probably finished in a fresh whisky barrel.Very flavorful!
I drink it first time in Cuba, several years ago, but now I have a ceccond chance. I love it in that time and place. In home I do not feel that great flavour like firt time, its not bad rum, I like it.
