The term zafra became known internationally during the 1960s when the Cuban government made the La Gran Zafra (The Great Zafra) a centrepiece of its economic policy and more importantly for notoriety of the term, the lead communication in its international relations campaign. Each year, the Cuban government urged its population to help make the zafra the biggest ever with schools closed and urban residents relocated to the countryside to assist with the harvest.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 06/11/2011
Clear, copper/polished amber.
Bourbon influenced toasty nose with berry and cherry aromas, crème caramel, milk chocolate, delicate nutmeg spice and tobacco leaf.
Slightly sweet yet assertive palate with toffee/fudge flavours, vanilla, Indian spice and dry oak.
Dry cedar/oak balances a touch of maple syrup and crème caramel in the slightly spiced finish with lingering tobacco and oak.
