Eminente Reserva 7 Years Cafecito Gift Set
From the Maker:
Occidente or Western-style rums are made near Havana: they are famous for being intense, dry, punchy - and perfect for cocktails. On the opposite side of the island, Oriente or Eastern style rum is smooth, fruity and ideal for sipping. Eminente, from the Central province of Villa Clara, combines the best of both regions, in a perfect balancing act: refreshing and robust, smooth yet complex, ideal for both mixing and sipping. Surprisingly unknown outside of the island, this style of rum is one of Cuba’s best-kept secrets.
A full-bodied seven-year-old, Eminente has been matured in white oak ex-whisky casks, creating aromas of freshly-ground coffee, toasted almonds, cocoa and dulce de leche on the nose. The palate offers notes of vanilla, soft smoke, ginger, prunes and rich coffee that linger in the finish.
This gift set includes one 700 mL bottle of Eminente Reserva 7 year old rum, and 2 espresso cups.
About the Maker:
Growing up in sugarcane fields that stretched “as far as the eye could see”, César Martí learnt his craft from his grandparents and maternal family who, having worked in the sugar industry, passed on to him generations of know-how. Martí dedicated his career to the pursuit of the utmost quality in Cuban rum. Not only did Martí become Cuba’s youngest Maestro Ronero, but he achieved this status in just nine years, an unmatched feat to this day. Eminente was born.
