Eminente 7 Year Old Reserva Rum: A Detailed Tasting Experience for the Discerning Palate

Hailing from the sun-drenched island of Cuba, Eminente 7 Year Old Reserva Rum offers a captivating journey for the senses. This premium aged rum boasts a complex flavour profile, thanks to meticulous craftsmanship and a unique ageing process. If you're looking for a luxurious sipping experience or a versatile base for classic cocktails, then look no further than Eminente Reserva.

A Nose that Captures the Cuban Essence

The first impression of Eminente 7 Year Old Reserva comes from its inviting aroma. As you raise the glass to your nose, you'll be greeted by a symphony of enticing scents. Rich, roasted coffee beans mingle with the sweetness of dulce de leche, a traditional Latin American caramel treat. Hints of toasted almonds add a touch of nuttiness, while subtle hints of cocoa weave a layer of complexity. This initial bouquet is a testament to the rum's ageing in ex-whisky casks, which imparts these distinctive characteristics.

A Full-Bodied Flavour Profile with Depth and Nuance

The delightful aroma seamlessly translates into a flavour profile that is both rich and surprisingly smooth. The first sip of Eminente Reserva ushers in a wave of vanilla sweetness, reminiscent of creamy custard. This sweetness is balanced by a gentle touch of smoke, likely a legacy of the whisky cask ageing. As the rum lingers on the palate, a surprising note of ginger emerges, adding a refreshing complexity. Hints of dried prunes and a continuation of the rich coffee character from the nose further enhance the experience.

A Long and Lingering Finish

The Eminente 7 Year Old Reserva concludes its delightful dance on the palate with a long and satisfying finish. The full-bodied character persists, leaving behind a trail of dark chocolate, molasses, and a hint of almond. A touch of pear adds a final flourish, creating a lasting impression that is both decadent and refreshing.

Eminente 7 Year Old Reserva: Serving Suggestions

Eminente 7 Year Old Reserva's versatility makes it a perfect choice for both sipping and crafting cocktails. Here are some suggestions to elevate your rum experience:

  • Neat: For the true aficionado, Eminente Reserva shines when enjoyed neat. Simply pour a measure into a snifter glass, swirl gently to release the aromas, and savour the rum's full complexity.

    • Daiquiri: Combine 50ml Eminente Reserva, 20ml fresh lime juice, and 20ml simple syrup in a shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a lime wedge.
    • Rum Old Fashioned:  Muddle a sugar cube with a dash of Angostura bitters in an old fashioned glass. Add 50ml Eminente Reserva and a generous amount of ice. Stir gently and garnish with an orange peel and a maraschino cherry.
    • Palmetto: Combine 50ml Eminente Reserva, 25ml fresh grapefruit juice, 15ml dry vermouth, and a dash of grenadine in a shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a grapefruit twist.
