A pair from Sancti Spiritus

Cuba’s Sancti Spiritus distillery is no stranger to us and while we are not too fond of most rums from Cuba in general, Sancti Spiritus seens to be the exception to the rule. As we didn’t write about them too much in the past, let me just refer you to this review, where some more…
