Hi Chip, the Santiago you have on your blog is not the 11 year. the 11 year comes with a black label clearly showing the age statement. If memory serves me the one you have in the picture is the 7 year.

I realize it is not the 11 year old, I was just relaying that some internet sites are claiming it as 11 years old (rotten beggars). Based upon my tasting, I doubt it is a 7 year old either; Unless they mean a tiny smidgen of the rum is 7 and the rest is 2 to 3 years old. I am pretty sure if it was seven years old the fact would be trumpeted on the age statement.

Mind you I am not accusing Santiago of misleading anyone, rather I think the middlemen that are between Santiago and the markets outside Cuba are a little creative in their marketing.

The term "Anejo" is used almost exclusively to describe spirits aged for less than five years. If a spirit is aged longer than that, terms like "Grand Anejo" or "Extra Anejo" are used. (These terms are sometimes used to describe spirits of less than 5 years aging as well.) It would be most unusual for the term "anejo" to refer to a 7 year aged product.
