„The Eminente Millesime 2012 not only met our expectations, but far exceeded them. With its aroma and flavor profile, it offers a fascinating and refreshing alternative to the often monotonous offerings of Cuban rums.“

„So this is how a rum tastes that consists of 100% aguardiente (a first for a Cuban distillate, as far as I know). And indeed: Something comparable I had not yet in the glass. Blind I would not have been able to assign the rum at all. In this first tasting, I focused on finding differences between Batch 1 and Batch 2. And they are indeed there: While Batch 1 gets going right away fruity-floral on the nose, Batch 2 is clearly more timid, more discreet. On the palate, however, it's the other way around: Batch 1 tends to confirm the impression gained on the nose, coming across like a light rum in a summer meadow with a gentle breeze blowing over it. Batch 2 is different: While Batch 1 seems somehow slightly broad, Batch 2 is clearly more astringent and has more depth, more wood and tobacco. At the latter, you could perhaps recognize the Cuban DNA - but also only maybe. Overall, both are solid rums and which one is more palatable, is probably dependent on the day or what weight you attach to the olfactory impression. Because of the interesting transformation from the nose to the palate, Batch 2 is a point ahead for me today. As I said, a very exciting bottling of Excellence Rhum and La Confrérie du Rhum. But if one wanted to dare at least a geographical comparison: Both batches do not yet reach the long-stored consistently exquisite 98s from Sanct Spíritus ((Cuba).“

„Aromatic Cuban. Makes really fun!“

„Beautiful nose. Glue, fresh, green apples, fruity, vanilla and caramel. Fine spice and orange peel. In the mouth a touch woodier, dried fruit and citrus. Good finish. Overall warm, powerful and very balanced. Very drinkable. A positive surprise from Cuba. More of it please!!! At the turntable: Arsenio Rodriguez and Chano Pozo. Thanks to Bonn!“

„At the first tasting I was almost a little disappointed, whether the hype about the first full proof Eminente. Meanwhile (after the third tasting) I discover but more and more facets. On the nose quite fruity, a little after quince compote, plus caramel candy, wood barrel, floral notes. On the palate toasty, malty. Since he was expressly advertised as a recommendation to the (Cuban) cigar, now also the test with a Romeo y Julieta: The two harmonize well with each other.“

„#4129 This one was a very nice surprise and the price tag is really good compared to what you get. A well rounded Cuban rum with fruits and light wood and a spicy palate. The overall profile is really nice and the ABV well integrated. Nice curtains in the glass and the empty glass has some orange and banana.“

„Some wood, lots of alcohol. Tastes like fusel in the finish. The price is completely exaggerated for such a bottling. For 60€ the bottle would have a raison d'être. Nevertheless, an interesting expansion of the horizon, from Cuba there are no modern single casks.“

„Endlich ein Cubaner mit ordentlich % und Charakter. Nase: intensiv, zu Beginn alkoholisch frisch und sehr blumig-fruchtig. Süße Aprikose, säuerlich-süße Kiwi, Passionsfrucht und grüner Apfel, gepaart mit Veilchen. Sehr süßer Beiklang von Zuckersirup. Dahinter Karamell und viel Vanille. Die noch immer vorhandene alkoholische Frische geht in Metallisches über. Unverkennbarer spanischer Stil, aber von der guten, intensiven Art. 8,1 Gaumen: hier ist der Alkohol etwas geschmeidiger eingebunden. Zu Beginn bitter und fruchtig-würzig. Zitronenschale mit Sauerkirsche. Sehr metallisch, pfeffrig mit etwas Muskat. Noch nicht ganz reife Haselnuss hinten raus. Im Nachgang wird er blumiger und bekommt noch Aprikose hinzu. 7,7 Wirklich mal ein guter „Standard“-Cubaner. Gut zum pur genießen, bestimmt sehr gut in Cocktails und besser als alle anderen bisher probieren Cubaner, abgesehen von einigen Sankti Spiritus…“

„For me, the most potent Cuban so far. Let stand for fifteen minutes, then plums, prune and something lemony are released. Also wood, acidic coffee and what I would call sweet sunflower seeds. Really interesting.“

„Quite exciting and gets better when he is allowed to breathe. Nose promises more than the rum can hold. On the palate then but classic Spanish style. Surprisingly sweet. Alcohol is well integrated.“

„Wow, Überraschung aus Kuba! Sehr lecker und harmonischer Mix aus Frucht, Schokolade, Karamell und Röstaromen. Gute Trinkstärke, vielleicht ist der Preis etwas hoch, aber das Gesamtpaket ist solide.“

„It's unlike any Cuban I've had. Heavier. Dirtier. More expressive. Real depth and richness. Floral honey. Vanilla. Peppery spice. Mildly medicinal. A little chocolate. Leather. Candied peanuts. Brown sugar. Yet out in the sunshine with a cooling breeze there manages to be a light and fruity element to the nose. The palate brings out fragrant spices and a fair bit of peppery heat. It almost carries the character of a well aged Bellevue 1998. Back end sees an almost grainy unrefined sugar note creep in“
