Ron Cubay rums are made from fermented Cuban sugar cane molasses and distilled in a column still. Two different rums are made and then blended together after being separately aged, an ‘aguardientes’ which leaves the still at 75% alc./vol and a ‘superfine’ at 95.5% alc./vol..
The rums are aged for 3 years in American white oak ex-bourbon barrels which are re-charred on the island.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 17/10/2013


Clear, very faint tint rather than crystal clear.


Subtle fudge and toffee with faint dry vermouth and red pepper corn spice.


Soft mouthfeel, light creamy toffee balances black pepper spice with faint herbal dry vermouth notes.


Lingering vanilla fudge with cracked black pepper heat.
