Summary

The Cuba (Bottled for Perola) is a limited release rum from the Secrete distillery in Cuba. It is aged for 10 years and bottled at cask strength with an ABV of 58.7%. It has a unique scent reminiscent of fruit gum, but the taste is too sharp and lacks the wow factor that the nose suggests. The nose has an alcohol sharpness and rum chocolate, while the tongue is very strong and aromatic with wood and toasted aromas. Overall rating: 85/100.

Leider zu alkoholisch und kantig. Aus der frisch geöffneten Flasche unangenehme Schwefel- und Käse-Assoziationen. 🫣 Am Gaumen angenehmer.

Frisch aufgemacht brutal säuerlich unangenehm vergoren käsig.... geschmacklich nicht ganz so geil und komplex wie der 9y alte im direkten Vergleich. weniger Frucht, dafür mehr Harz, Ledersattel und Tabak und Kakao. dafür kommen noch etwas alte Banane und Honig und Kaffee dazu und er ist noch etwas süffiger. die Karamellbonbon DNA bleibt allerdings erhalten! Der 9er ist aber deutlich besser!

In der Nase ein recht langweiliger, typischer Spanier, der am Gaumen etwas überrascht. Die 57% ABV wirken noch etwas scharf, liefern aber einen vergleichsweise intensiven Geschmack, der vor allem mit einigen rostigen Aromen überzeugt. Für Kuba (zumindest was meine bisherigen Erfahrungen betrifft) recht komplex und intensiv.

Dunkles Gold Geruch: Schwach süß, blumig (Kamille, Stroh, nasses verfaultes Gras), Vanille Vergoren, säuerlich, Quitte Rauch Holzig (virgin cask) Geschmack: Frisch geöffnet adstringierend und trocken im Mund. Nach eintägigem Stehen dagegen eher süß. Beim Schlucken würzig alkoholisch. Dabei fruchtig (Birne) mit etwas Karamell. Holzig Abgang: Mittellang Trocken, würzig, holzig und etwas fruchtig. 80 Punkte Das Sample hat halbvoll von eintägigem Stehen deutlich profitiert. Der Geschmack ist jetzt deutlich runder.

Zunächst etwas beißend in der Nase. Metallisch frisch mit Limette und Melisse. Hat sogar etwas harziges. Bleibt auf der fruchtigen Seite mit Apfel und bekommt in der Mitte eine interessante Kakao-Note. Am Gaumen kommt der spanische Stil durch. Gedeckte Frucht, metallisch, karamellig und etwas grün in Richtung Tee. Aber doch etwas einfach und eindimensional. Nicht meins, zu wenig herausfordernd…

Bekommt nach etwa zwei Stunden im Glas eine ausgesprochen eigene Duftnote, die an Fruchtkaugummis erinnert. Nicht uninteressant, am Gaumen fehlt mir aber der Wow-Effekt, den die Nase noch andeutet. Geschmacklich dann insgesamt etwas zu schroff.

Käse... Oder wie man sagt alte Socke. Aber positiv es ist nur im Geruch... Geschmack deutlich milder und besser.
