“Liquid history from Cuba. Extremely mild, balanced and yet intense. Really great nose! Nice chocolate and roasted flavors. Sherry. Sweet, but not unpleasant. Great Spanish style rum!”

“A piece of rum history!It has the typicality of all Cuban rums, smooth and elegant and enveloping, with a higher intensity than others of its kind.In my opinion, however, for the price at which it is found today, it lacks aromatic complexity and power.There are many other rums less expensive than this one that have an edge!”

“Another slightly old tasting but I have more notes on it. The nose is sweet and balanced with wood and nuts and a lovely floral note. The palate is very sweet, oily and round with smoky wood, dried fruit, brown sugar and a hint of marzipan at the end. The finish is medium long with smoky wood, dried fruit and brown sugar. Pretty sweet and definitely an good rum for cakes etc.”
