Review:

Hard to hate but the cola and lime dominate the subtle gin flavours.

History:

Depending on where you are, a Cubata is:
UK - a gin-based equivalent to the light rum-based Cuba Libre
USA - an aged/dark rum-based Cuba Libre
Spain - pretty much any distilled spirit mixed with cola. Indeed, in Spain where gin is the dominant spirit, gin mixed with cola is also known as a RAF, apparently historically due to Royal Air Force servicemen based in Spain favouring this serve.
