You need to try this rum. It's molasses based, yet with the aromatic vegetality of a fine agricole and enough fruity overtones to make it an outstanding sipping rum. Really distinctive in every aspect. If you're lucky enough to find a bottle, turn it around and admire the beautiful paintings on the back of the front label, as seen through the rum.

Everything about this product - but especially the taste - is top notch. You will not find a better white rum for any price.

This is an Absolute Gem of a White Rum, It is discontinued so you must grab a Bottle. For my Birthday this year I was Planning the Best Mojitos down to the Bamboo Straw-fast forward do to the U.S Embargo on Cuba no Havana Club 3 yr available, searched Forums, Youtube, etc. Finally out of Divine luck I came across Cana Brava, Located in Panama and made the same way since 1922. Francisco "Don Pancho" J Fernandez the Master Distiller made Rum in Cuba for over 35 Years mastering the Cuban Method before moving to Panama. This is no exaggeration this Rum is Delicious and would be willing to bet it even surpasses some Aged Rums with lesser Distillers.
I would pay twice as much for this and at $18 a bottle I was a Modern Day Rum Pirate!

Makes one of the best traditional daiquiris I've tried (and really good mojito, too). Its light, no doubt. Column-still rums have no weight, making them ideal for easy-going aromatic drinks, or for a relaxed sipping experience. It mixes very well in general, with very little conflict, making it one to return to again and again at the bar: a benchmark for the style. I believe it uses many rums older than 3yrs to create the ideal blend. About $30 for a bottle.

This rum is a little on the dry side, but has just enough sweetness to make it good. Smells and tastes of sugarcane, allspice, with just a hint of vanilla, citrus, and oak.

Nice, though I slightly prefer other lights such as Diplomatico, Selvarey, and Koloa.

I could enjoy CBL all day its just the right touch of sweetness and easy on the throat making it a true delight.

I feel like when people are rating white rum they tend to forget what it is supposed to be.

Caña Brava is something very special. Significant thought seems to ave gone into this rum. From the bottle being shaped for different holds and volume markings on it so you can reuse it in the future, to to full flavor that approaches but does not go over the top - I love it. Used in a traditional daiquiri with cane syrup it is spectacular. For me it has taken the "warm up" aperitif cocktail to a whole new level. I do think its flavor profile may be a bit rich if your looking for it to play well with other light modifiers - i.e. an Airmail

I historically don't pay more than $18-$20 for a bottle of solid white rum. Caña Brava is my new exception to this rule and pull it out when I want something a bit more special in a daiquiri or a more forward but not overpowering presence in a tiki cocktail.

Tried a bottle of this, used it in some cocktails and it did the job, quite an earthy taste, hints of Vanilla
and quite dry with just a hint of sweetness.Prefer it over the usual Bacardi and Coke.

Always nice to enjoy a rum from a new country, in this rum, Panama. Unfortunately, harsh and unbalanced. Still, worth enjoying at least once.

This was the bottle that taught me about the complexity and pleasure of white rum. Slightly sweet stonefruit notes make this an excellent rum to mix or sip.

Pleasantly surprised to find this one is a pretty solid sipper. Very tequila-like with all the vegetal notes. Nice mouthfeel... viscous. Dry with just a hint of sweetness. At $20.99 it's a no-brainer... this goes in the daily go-to rotation.
