After blindly purchasing this one. I am glad to say I did. Makes a excellent addition to the collection and will be well enjoyed over ice.

Dejlig rom. Man smager mørk chokolade og mokka. Den har en god sødme.

Taste of Cuban land and tobacco, Cuban salt and soil, core taste of the Cuban spirits you will find in its every rum. Here it's most pronounced, most smooth, delicious and unique at the same time.

Just one problem with it: how to keep the bottle alive and keep treating guests )

Viva Cuba!

Geruch nach Walnuss, Zuckerrohr, sehr fein.
Im Geschmack findet man die Geruchsnoten wieder, plus getrocknete Früchte,
das ganze mit einer natürlichen Süße und ein wenig Alkohol im Abgang, sehr gefällig.

Fazit: bis jetzt der beste Santiago de Cuba den ich verkostet habe. 8+
Er ist ausgewogener als seine Brüder mit 11 und 12 Jahren, schmeckt besser, kann sich aber nicht so klar absetzen, besonders vom 11 Jahre alten, wohl weil dieser auch ein besonders guter Rum ist.

Wenn der Preis stimmt ist aber der „Santiago de Cuba Extra Anejo 20-Year“ in allen Punkten die bessere Wahl. Ich werde ihn sicher wieder nachkaufen.

I like it is not too sweet for a Ron, nice nose but rest is very flat, almost watery, too bad it had a nice start

It's a classic cuban style, not so sweet and great taste. A interesting aftertaste, perfect with an cigar.

Wow, I like this one a lot. Awesome nose and taste, a long lingering finish. Not just sweet, I also sense a bit of soy, which gives a lovely contrast. A keeper!

people say it s expensive, i say cuban cigars are expensive too but they still the best, naturally sweet and creamy ... so this rum is expensive but dry, smooth, vanilla, oak, spices ... try it with a cuban cigar !

This rum is exceptional. It almost sipped like a single malt, but very smooth and hints of sweet. Rare to find, make sure you taste while you can

A strong start that unlocks your senses. Perfect with an cigar, very rich aftertaste, wood, tobacco and light notes of vanilla and smoke.
