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.

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!

This is one of the best Havana Club.
Dry, masculine rum, with the high Havana club marks.
I like it very much.

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.

Very nice rum! This rum is not produced anymore, or better, this is produced these days as the Selección de Maestros.

Rum tasting started with a super rare Havana Club Barrel Proof. This is the predecessor bottle from the fairly good Havana Club Seleccion de Maestros. Barrel Proof has 45% alcohol content, very nice and sturdy carton box surrounds the excellent old school bottle and label design. Mahogany color. Leather, plenty of oak and quite a bit of unaged alcohol to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Dry and long lasting burn at the end. Slightly better and smoother than Seleccion de Maestros, so this easily earns 8 versus the solid 7 for Seleccion de Maestros.

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.

The best Havana Club so far. Great for cocktails and possible for sipping

Aún tengo 2 de estas botellas, es un buen ron. Normalmente es lo que esperas de un ron cubano, fuerte y seco.

All of a sudden all my bad experiences of Havana Club rum are blown away. Unfortunately a bit too expensive...but anyway....
