70cl * 41.3% ABV * Cuba
Made in the heart of an island dubbed "isla del cocodrilo" by locals, for its unusual shape, Eminente is the project of César Martí, the youngest Cuban Maestro Ronero (Rum Master) of the island, who achieved the status after only nine years of training. Aged for 7 years minimum in white oak ex-whisky barrels. It has the aesthetics of a traditional Cuban light rum with the complexity and depth of a very old one.
More than suitable for sipping, over ice it also makes an excellent rum Old Fashioned. Aromas of coffee, dulce de leche, toasted almond and cocoa are followed by vanilla, cane sugar, Sichuan pepper and prune on the palate. The long finish is full of chocolate, molasses, almond and pear.
