Default Arecha Cuban Rum?

Does anyone know this brand? It is marketed here in Germany as organically produced and artisan-crafted. They have a white, a carta blanca (3 years), Dorado, Carta Oro (5 years), Anejo (7) and a rum liqueur on offer here.

I've tried that rum before as it was a product carried here before being DC'd.

I found it similar to Havana Club Anejo except the Arecha was drier in the nose and palate. I also didn't find it as 'full' tasting as the Havana Club (if that makes any sense). I quite liked it in mojitos and my version of the Caiprihna though.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,
it's difficult for me to try rums anywhere and I hesistate simply buying blind without at least some orientation.

I know I am the same way. Initially I would research the hell out of a rum; read all the reviews etc etc, before I bought it. Then I would buy it and not like it despite the glowing recommendations.

Now I am more of the type that I know what rums I like and I will buy different rums but from the same country, distiller, or with the same characteristics. Sometimes I just go on gut instinct.
