This was one of the first aged rum I tasted and definitely the first Cuban styled. So now many years after I’m quite sure that that affected my rating. Have to get it a second chance if I run into it.

Thus rum originates from Cuba but destilled and matured in the Domenican Republic today, following the old Cuban methods to the point. Beginners may want to add an icecube when enjoying this rum. It is a rum in the cheap end so don't expect too much 😊

Riecht viel besser als er schmeckt. Der Karamellgeruch kommt nicht auf der Zunge an

One of my favourite rum in lower price range. Very well balanced. Suitable for casual drinking and as premium topping for cocktails.

Vanillish, quite dry, but nice

Nose: Alcohol and wood along with spicy notes. Taste: Semi-sweet, taste of burnt sugar with bitter finish. You can mostly taste the wood with candied fruit and vanilla although the taste is not intense and rather seems diluted. Finish: Very short. Overall I am not impressed and can think of dozen rums in this price tag which are much better in terms of value against what you get for your money.
