Rum Review: Santiago De Cuba Ron Anejo
Posted by Arctic Wolf on August 5, 2010
Pictured to the right is a bottle of Ron Anejo Santigo de Cuba, an authentic Cuban rum which was provided for me to sample. I was asked me to take the bottle home with me, try a few ounces and to provide an opinion. I decided it would be nice to share this opinion on my blog as well.
I have found very little information about the rum, other than what I can decipher from the label and the smattering of information on the internet where it is sold by some internet dealers as an 11-year-old rum, and others as simply an anejo rum without age statement. I also ran across claims that this was Fidel Castro’s favourite rum. A claim which I can neither confirm nor deny.
Here is a clip from my review:
..The mouth is clean and slightly sharp with orange peel, lime and oak spice. Mild toffee and almonds combine with charred coconut, and perhaps a hint of treacle. There is the vaguest hint of leather and smoke but these elements are underdeveloped…”
