Made from sugar cane molasses grown on the island known locally as Isla del Cocodrilo off the coast of central Cuba.
The spirit is first distilled to 75% ABV then skilfully blended with aguardiente from the house collection.
Ageing takes place in white ex-whisky oak for a minimum of seven years.
Ideal for sipping on its own, over a large ice cube or in cocktails, Eminente Reserva possesses the aesthetics of a traditional Cuban light rum but with the complexity and depth of a very old one.
Nose: Eminente Reserva is at once intense and delicate on the nose. The initial aroma of freshly roasted coffee gives way to softer notes of dulce de leche, toasted almond and cocoa.
Palate: Full-bodied and incredibly deep, the palate is rich with vanilla and smoky notes, coffee and raspadura, which is the taste of unrefined cane sugar.
Finish: Spicy notes of ginger and Sichuan pepper with a slight taste of prune in the background. Unsurprisingly, this is a long finish, fresh and creamy with notes of chocolate and a hint of smoke.
