Eminente Reserva is a blend of full two different styles of Cuban rum, both distilled from molasses and aged for at least 7 years with multiple blending stages during this period.
A full-bodied rum distilled to 75% alc./vol. is aged in ex-whisk(e)y casks and a blend of these casks is then mixed with a lighter style Cuban rum distilled to 96% alc./vol.. This blend of two different rums is then re-casked for further ageing.

Eminente and its elaborate aging and blending process was created by César Martí - one of Cuba's ten Maestros Roneros (master Cuban rum distillers).

Eminente is packaged in a distinctive crocodile skin-like textured glass bottle representing the crocodiles found in the Zapata Swamp, Cuba's largest wetland habitat. The side label resembles a travel ticket and tells the story of Eminente. Each label is individually numbered.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 23/03/2021


Clear, deep golden amber.


Roasted coffee beans, leather, cigar box, cacao, and toasted almond.


Full-bodied. Rich vanilla, brown sugar, caramel and prunes are balanced by bitter oak tannins, coffee, and dry cigar leaf. The palate is livened by ginger, nutmeg and peppery spice.


Long dry finish with cacao, coffee and faint smoke.​


Appropriately for a Cuban rum, Eminente is best described as "a cigar rum." Full-bodied and dry with notes of vanilla, brown sugar and caramel dried by oak tannins, coffee and cigar leaf.
