Top 30 Rums Countdown # 14 – Cubaney Ron Tesero Grand Reserve
Posted by Arctic Wolf on December 11, 2012
Oliver and Oliver, are an independent bottler of rum operating in the Dominican Republic. They buy barreled rum from major rum producers in the Caribbean, and then age it using a solera aging system in what they call the “Cuban” style. The Cubaney Ron Tesero Grand Reserve is such a solera style rum which features rums as old as 25 years in the blend.
When I published my first Rum Howler Awards, this particular rum from Oliver & Oliver was declared the 2010 Rum of the Year. In 2012, I am naming it the 14th Best Rum in the World in my Top 30 Countdown!
# 14 – Cubaney Ron Tesero Grand Reserve
“… The rum in the glass is a deep, rich, bronze color which carries the rich aroma of dark brown sugar and wonderful baking spices. A faint smoke is present which carries scents of dried fruits, raisins, and a soft and subtle cherry-like aroma in the background. A little wave of soft tobacco is mixed in, as is an ever-present woody backdrop which seems to tie everything together…”
This is a rich, decadent rum, full of character, and it is amongst the best rums I have ever tasted.
