I kinda got a feeling the Santiago de Cuba rum may be most popular because it was cheap.
That would also make it the well rum maybe.



To be very clear, the Santiago rum garnered the highest praise from the head bartender at Polinesio and two other locals who were spirits-knowledgeable. I agree, Santiago rum could be what the locals have a palate for, and Havana Club is definitely premium-priced in their home market. But since I had already been collecting Havana Club over the years, and am quite adequately stocked, I found it prudent to bring back mostly the lesser-known Santiago rum on this trip. The silver Santiago is very nice in my daiquiris, but I haven't completed more formal taste comparisons yet.

I'm going to be on Grand Bahamas Island this weekend. I'll be looking for rum and local falernum insights, so I'll see what information I come back with. This time I'm bringing a bigger suitcase, lol...

My recommendations:



Wish we had brought back more of both of them!!

The Ron Cubay is 10 year & very nice. This would be a regular stock item in our bar if we could get more of it.
Ron Caney is no longer made from what I understand. We found it in a small gift shop in the basement of one of the old hotels that I expect not a lot of people run across, so they still had old stock.
