Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Havana Club 3-Year rum is produced from molasses and aged for 3 years in white oak barrels before filtering and bottling.
Havana Club rum is produced in Cuba, where the company was founded in 1878 by José Arechabala. The company was nationalized in 1959 after the Cuban Revolution and now jointly owned by Pernod Ricard and the Cuban government.
You'll NEVER use Bacardi again after trying this rum. Smooth and balanced with just the right amount of kick. It's content to be the rum in a cocktail without taking over the other flavors, or being vodka-like in neutrality. Straight up it isn't very impressive, but if that's how you drink rum, then you should be buying far more expensive products anyway.
And I love it. Tried it straight and it was good. In a Mojito, Daiquiri and Cuba Libre it is fantastic. Lime and mint make this rum pop....it is very smooth and fresh...I like it! Thank you, Cuba.
This was served to me instead of dark rum... Nearly spat it out as was very foul and left a horrible taste in the mouth
Nice rum to mix. Straight up is also possible but then I would reccommend that you save your money and buy a better one. This is the bottle that let you forget Bacardi in a instance.
Designed exclusively for Mojitos... I have it in the top of my coctails preferred rums, one of the best clear rums i tried... My rate is not bigger cause here the comparation is between all rums, but i really like it so much.
This bad boy is beating it's younger sibling out of market. And for good cause. the taste is floverly-sweet and it makes great Mojito, Daiquiri, Piňacolada and Cuba libre. And other coctails as well. and it is old enough to have it's own attitude to present, so drinking neat "young" rums is finally enjoyable (but mostly on the rocks). Essential for cocktail lovers.
Not the worst drink I've had, but it's what I'd call a rum flavoured ethanol. Got a gasoline aftertaste to it. Wouldn't see the point of buying this when at costs the same as the far better Especial. You give this to the freeloaders so they stop drinking your piss & start buying their own.
This rum is suited to any white rum based cocktail. I swear by Havana club and you can't beat a classic daiquiri with this one!
Perfect product for cocktails. Clean and round taste, little vanilla and citrus.
Early 2000 Havana Club was introduced in Belgium and became quickly my favourite rum to mix with cola.
To be honest I've put it aside the last years to discover other rums, but it's always nice to come back to this solid reference as a mixing rum!
It is actually quite drinkable neat - by no means great, but not bad either. Clearly it's mainly meant as a mixer, particularly with coke, but it does have some decent flavour and considering the price, it's a bit of a bargain.
The extra aging has done nothing to help this rum. It's still a mess.
For the price is good for Mojito and other mixed drinks.
Il sera la base d'excellents mojitos mais il ne faut pas en attendre plus.
Young rum that already has character. Great mixer for Coke or mojitos
Like it with coke. A lot better than the Havana club blanco. I like the havana club especial better (about the same price). 6/10
This one is a classic mixing rum. It is the mojito rum.
Its a little bit spicy and very neutral. No rum for sipping.
Nice mixer rum. Great for the original mojito. Strong as sipper.
Good cuban white rum for mixing. Not strong alcohol taste for a young rum.
I'm not much of a cocktail / rum with mixer drinker so probably not the best person to review this, as this is the only way I could possible imagine this to be drinkable.
When you buy a bottle of this excellent white rum, you will notice it actually as a slight yellow tinge (something on the line of reposado tequilas), because it has been aged for three years in oak barrels before bottling, but unlike other brands, the color has not been charcoal filtered out. I commend this, because the filtration takes away part of the flavor, and why pretend something that's not true (both coloring aged rums with caramel and filtering so called white rum is a form of deception. Let the color stay natural!). Some may complain that it can affect color of cocktails that call for perfectly white rum, I say let them complain.
On the nose, you will get a faint, warming, pleasant fruity.
The taste is where this rum shines, though. Clean, round, smooth, creamy, with just a hint of molasses sweetness, it is actually sippable. Compare it to the kerosene and metallic notes of Bacardi so called, erhm, erhm "Superior", and you will soon find out which rum is actually superior.
There is actually a short, pleasant, warming finish. For a white, briefly aged rum, this humble fellow clearly outperforms.
By the way, it's the original, Cuban version of the rum, manufactured in Cuba, not the version stolen by a mafia family backed by the US government (for that one, google "Bacardi, hooch, petrol, disgusting"). This original version is unavailable in the USA due to a self-inflicted American embargo, so if you whether you are a progressive Yank, or bible-thumping, Trump-electing redneck from the south, and you are holding a bottle of this, please contact your nearest NSA operated secret torture chamber to make an appointment where a highly trained information extraction professional will find out all about how you obtained this illegal and clearly peace-endangering substance. Shame on you, citizen!
God mixer rom. Kan ikke anbefales at drikke ren, heller ikke med is.
standard rum für drinks wie zb. mojito, daiquiri, cocoloco.... mit diesem rum kann man nicht viel falsch machen..
