Eminente Ambar Claro 3 Year Old Rum: A Sun-Kissed Cuban Delight (The General Wine Co. Tasting Notes)


Embark on a flavour adventure with Eminente Ambar Claro, a 3-year-old Cuban rum sun-drenched with tropical fruit notes and intriguing hints of spice. This light and exquisite rum is a masterpiece crafted by Eminente, a renowned Cuban distillery.

A Whisky Cask Twist

What truly sets Eminente Ambar Claro apart is its unique ageing process. After distillation, the rum spends three years maturing in ex-whisky casks. This imparts a fascinating layer of complexity to the rum, adding whispers of vanilla, caramel, and a touch of smokiness to the vibrant fruit profile.

Tasting Notes

  • Colour: A beautiful amber hue with golden highlights, reminiscent of a Cuban sunset.
  • Nose: The initial aroma is an explosion of fresh fruit. Think ripe red apples, juicy pears, and a touch of zesty citrus. As you delve deeper, subtle notes of ginger, white pepper, and a hint of chamomile emerge, creating an intriguing complexity. The influence of the whisky casks peeks through with whispers of vanilla and caramel, adding a touch of richness.
  • Palate: The first sip delivers a burst of sweetness, dominated by those luscious red apples and pears. The ginger and white pepper notes from the nose come alive on the palate, adding a delightful warmth. The influence of the whisky casks becomes more apparent here, with hints of vanilla, caramel, and a touch of oaky spice dancing across the tongue. The body is light to medium, with a smooth and creamy texture.
  • Finish: The finish is clean and lingers pleasantly, leaving behind a trail of red apple, ginger spice, and a touch of vanilla sweetness. The subtle smokiness from the whisky casks adds a whisper of intrigue to the aftertaste.
