Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
What I´ve heard this is the old version of the Havana Club Seleccion de Maestros (HCSM), or rather that the HCSM is the new version of Havana Club Barrel Proof..? Anyway, I´m a fan of the HCSM and once a got a oppertunity to try the Barrel Proof I got pretty excited and I enjoyed every sip of it!
Higher proof but smooth, with lovely but bit alcohol smell, and superb balanced taste. The sweetness is right on spot, smooth vanilla caramel taste with hints of oak and nuts taste is so mellow it is almost perfect sipper for me. Although I cherish the Seleccion very much, the Barrel Proof just won my heart.
Not my absolute favourite rum but it is so very nice. Great for sipping and mixing, but mixing feels a wrong. Would drink this everyday, recommend for everyone.
Te vroeg van deze fles geproefd, toen nog niet ‘volwassen’ genoeg. Wel al meteen onder de indruk van de smaak, krachtig en zwaar. Zou graag voor een herkansing gaan.
All of a sudden all my bad experiences of Havana Club rum are blown away. Unfortunately a bit too expensive...but anyway....
Smooth and sweet classic rum combined with barrel wood flavor.
Barrel proof has its name from the fact that it is bottled directly from the barrel.
El mismo procentaje que su "hermano". Con 45% de alcohol es suave. Tengo una botella de 1L en mi colección pero no la voy a abrir por si no la puedo conseguir.
Suave En boca con notas a vainilla y frech Oak complicado conseguí le pero gracias al maestro ronero Miguel Fernández pudo ser posible
Unfortunately I will first apologise for my review. Having been a fan of the Havana 5 and 7 year varietys I purchased a bottle which is yet to be opened...8 years later.
Sampled in a bar on a fuzzy night.
8/10 to keep the average.
I have read a lot about this rare rum and then bought it from ebay (it is possible but difficult and expensive). What a moment when we opened box with three 1L bottles :) I have not opened it yet but found a bar with Barrel Proof on menu, quite a luck.
So to the review: colour, smell and taste is absolute delight. Have not yet tasted better rum. Toffee, oak, cinnamon. 45% means strong afterburn but not unpleasant. Want more! ;)
A purchase while in Cuba. A very fine example of good rum. Not to sweet. A perfect match with Cuban cigars... or any cigar. Would always make sure to have a bottle in my cabinet... if I could find it. The last 4 ounces in the bottle have been clinging to life... I don't want to finish it for always longing for more. I know, I know... just drink it already.... enjoy it. I think I will.
Soft, fruity flavor of raisins.
Do you love rum raisin ice cream, you must have one.
Have never tast a better rum. (But im novice)
