Default The Rums of Oliver and Oliver

Rum Review: Cubaney Ron Tesero Grand Reserve

I have a friend in the Dominican Republic with a website called Rums of the Dominican Republic (Drums). He is a member here at the Ministry of Rum, Pavol Kažimir. Pavol and I have exchanged emails a few times, and we met in Miami in May where we seemed to hit it off with each other quite well. But, I was very surprised when he emailed me during the summer and asked me which bottle of Dominican Rum I would like to receive when his friend visited Edmonton. I stated a preference for something that maybe wasn’t available in my locale, and Pavol promptly arranged for Oliver and Oliver to provide me a sample bottle for review.

The bottle that was chosen surprised me all the more, the Cubaney Ron Tesero Grand Reserve. A solera style with aged rum as old as 25 years in the blend. In fact, I do believe this may be the top of the line as far as Oliver and Oliver is concerned. If you have not heard of Oliver and Oliver, I should explain that they are an independent bottler of rum operating in the Dominican Republic. They buy barreled rum from major rum producers, and then age it using a solera aging system in the “Cuban” style.

I thank you Pavol for obtaining this sample for me, and lest I bore everyone; here is an excerpt from the review:

“…The rum carries a firm but soft sweetness forward, as well as a nice spiciness that coats the tongue and the sides of the mouth as the first sip is taken. I taste rich baking spices wrapped inside a deep dark brown leathery toffee and molasses…”

Here is a link to the full review:

Note to Ed: I will move the link to the database if you ever add this rum to the list.
