With its restrained power, the Ron de Cuba Gran Reserva 10 years old comes as a pleasant surprise on first tasting, with a complex, refined palate like no other: beautiful notes of roasted coffee, red fruits and floral notes preceding a touch of honey and vanilla. This is a well-balanced, smooth, deep rum with a fruity profile dominated by dried apricot and orange blossom; its woodiness offers accents of sandalwood and hazelnut, echoing its time in French oak barrels. Strength and vitality sum up this 10-year-old made in Cuba, a discovery among the great Caribbean rums.
Elaboration:Made from a blend of ten-year-old light rum and aguardiente added to a 3-month finish in French oak barrels. These eaux-de-vie have been aged under specific conditions in a dry cellar.
Color:Light amber, brilliant.
Nose:Flavors of freshly roasted coffee, red berries and flowers give way to a touch of honey and vanilla with an almost mentholated freshness.
Palate:This rum is balanced, smooth and deep with a fruity profile, dominated by dried apricot and orange blossom with hints of sandalwood, hazelnut and allspice.
The finish is long, persistent and sweet, with the spicy character of Sichuan pepper and impressions of caramel, pine sap and saffron.
Food and wine pairing:Enjoy dry, on the rocks or in cocktails.
Embodying the renaissance of Cuban rum, Eminente brings up to date the island's ancestral tradition, now reinterpreted by the country's youngest master rum maker, Cesar Marti.
These are rums composed of over 70% cane brandy, the highest proportion of all Cuban rums, inspired by 19th-century know-how, and aged for 7 and 10 years respectively. These structured rums, rich in aroma, perfectly combine delicacy and depth, power and vitality.
