Default Cuban Style

Do you know, or think you know, what is Cuban Style, or is it simply a marketing term which is over used in the US?

Do the Cuban Style rums really reflect or compare favorably to those that are actually from Cuba?

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.

Very interesting question. I like this one, but being a us resident am limited to having tried the HC 15 and 7 anos. I think the BODY is light on cuban formula and cuban rums where its character and nuances are deep and hard to describe. The matusalem, vizcaya, and HC's I've tried have been light bodied but have taken me several sips, several minutes, and several sessions to feel like I know the rum. After one evening with the HC 15 and 7 I still don't believe I know these rums well.
