Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Enjoyed a bottle of Pacto Navio with my buddies while vacationing in Germany. Very nice sturdy bottle and old fashioned label design. Reddish color. Strong smell from the French Sauternes Casks. Very nice flavor profile. Mild burn at the end.
Moc se mě líbí láhev, rum krásně voní, bohužel chuť je průměrná, nezajímavá. Vzhledem k ceně celkově zklamání.
Zaujímavá korenista chuť ktorá mi pripomína metaxu, ako aj chuťou tak aj vonou
Raisens with burnt oak and alcohol
Very very sweet intial sickly almost with that amount of sugar
Sweet sugar on the lips awful
The best havana club i had so far, what does not mean its really good.
Vanille und Caramel in der nase, weich und süss im Mund mit leicht herber Note.
Leider etwas zu süss, womöglich wegen Zucker, desshalb eher etwas für weniger anspruchvolle Rumtrinker.
Gute Alternative zu Diplomatico R.E. oder Plantation XO
Cubansky pomerne vlidny spolecnik... necekejte, ze vas veme do nebe, ale rozhodne neurazi ... je to rum
Well i was looking forward to this rum, but disappointed blah.
At 1st i hated it as the alcohol was just to overpowering and bitter, after a few drink it tasted better but i have decided that it is only a rum for coke mixes
got drunk on it and thats the main thing
Un peu fort en alcool au nez mais plutot sympa a deguster
Just the right amount of sweetness and caramel, alcohol does not stand or to me. Worth it
I had this rum straight and thought it was good but not great. A little harsh, like most Cuban rums. Them I paired it with a Cuban cigar (Partagas) and man did that change the taste. This rum was definitely made with Cuban cigars in mind.
In taste i feel vanilla, but not sweet vanilla. Also you can feel cask smell in your nose, not sweet, but smooth.
Not a typical Cuban style rum, a little sweeter, but not cloying. A nice change, particularly good for a night cap.
Aroma of dates figs moist tobacco. Spicy alcohol and easy down the throat.
Certainly one of the better Havana Club rums, packaged nicely. Not a very complex taste but enjoyable. But there easily are much better rums in this price category.
nice color and interesting aftertaste (little burn). I m not excited but i m not also dissapointed. Maybe i was expected more from Havana. As another person wrote this is better that 7 anos but far away from Maestros. BUT...i dont have any negative so i will give it another try
Nice Ron, taste is sweeter but sharp taste can be felt.
Picked up at Germany Duty Free shop. Light somewhat sweet aroma, light on the tongue, quite smooth, slight sweetness, easy finish with little burn. Quite pleasant.
A commercial rum, maybe good for cocktails but mediocre quality...
Bought this in duty free, I liked the look and the story.
Chunky embossed bottle, fancy label.
Aged in ex-Sauternes casks, I was hoping for something like the Foursquare Zinfandel edition.
In the glass there is very little aroma.
On the tongue it is very sweet (4/5).
The predominant flavours are - surprisingly - Oak and smoke. A real lack of fruit was disappointing, considering the efforts that had gone into casking it (allegedly shipped across the ocean in the wine casks).
In summary a reasonable attempt of a mainstream producer to make a special edition, but the exact process is not declared, too much sugar has been added and the flavours have not really come through.
Overall the sweetness kills everything else in this rum. The aftertaste is pretty good but Im struggling with taking another sip.
nič specialnega, v primerjavi z rumi v podobnem cenovnem rangu...
Nice, I must reccomend to everyone who likes to enjoy sunny day with a glass of good rum in their hands.
The impression is brighter than Havana Club 7 year.
"Seleccion de Maestros" is better at the almost same price.
However, this is not bad rum. Still I do not want to buy this rum one more time.
