Cuban Rum Tasting Notes

Posted: September 16, 2011 in Cuba, Rum

Bacardi Superior 37.5%

Tasted: May 2005

Youthful, pungent aromas of fresh citrus. Quite neutral on the palate, slightly perfumed but lacking any discernable character apart from alcohol.

Havana Club Rum 7 year old 40%

Tasted: Dec 2013

The nose is a little on the spirit side with vanilla, dried sultana and apricot, light treacle and coconut. With time a hint of perfumed orange appears.

The palate is light and nutty with treacle, vanilla and dried fruit. Lightly oiled and relatively straightforward with quite a spicy, if somewhat spirit finish. Bitter, woody, chocolaty after-taste.
