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.
Aroma starts grassy and herbal. Neat it burns, but not harsh. Great mixer, slips into anything, has character, does not disappear. Wonderful daquiri, rum and coke, ginger beer.
Not intended to be sipped, it's a white rum. Often hear people complain white rum is harsh when taken neat. It's intended to be a mixer, use it that way.
Blandbas som funkar bra inom de mesta. Bör finnas i barskåpet om man gillar att blanda drinkar och är ett måste för en pina colada.
Smakmässigt är den ok i drinkar men aldrig bart.
Slightly aged, not completely colourless, but mostly reminiscent of a ok white rum.
Perfect for making the perfect daiquiri! Requires coconut based suntan liquid and loads of ice!
Realy great for a Cuba libre. Not for neat drinking. But who cares. It is quite cheap
For use in cocktails. Good quality white rum. Good investment for a home bar.
Bílí, tříletý rum určený především pro mixování a koktejly. Podobná konkurence je většinou samostatně naprosto nepitelná, Havanu pít lze, nemá to vůni, nebo zvláštní chuť, ale je z ní cítit, že je to má kvalitní základy.
Tried straight to understand it better...it didnt let me...always with cola. And always if i dont have any other choice.
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..
Pur aufgrund seines "medizinischen" Geschmacks kaum zu genießen, in einfachen Mixen (z. B. Mojito) aber schwierig zu toppen. Kaum zu glauben aber wahr.
Not a rum useful for much aside from cocktails but that it is very good for.
Not a sipper obviously but as mixer it is perfect. It has flavour unlike bacardi and far superior in my opinion.
Hlavne do miešaných drinkov ale aj na samotné vypitie má svoju charakteristiku. Lepšie ako biely ale v mixe najlepší.
Some people say it fits well with some cocktails but as a pure rum I can not appreciate it. In that case I prefer a basic rum or the more expensive Havana Club Seleccion De Maestros.
It surely does not fit a Cuba Libre but is slightly better with fruit juice
Sweet, smooth and subtle. Very nice to drink straight, even for a clear rum.
this is a pretty decent mixing rum, better than bacardi
So there you are in the liquor store, staring at the rows of rum and wondering which one will be unnecessarily added to your bourgeoning bar. You have more bottles than your favourite boozer but It’s an itch to be scratched and it’s not worth kidding yourself.
So if you are looking for light then you can do much worse than this.
It’s the full 80 proof which is nice and it works in what ever drink you choose. I like it with lime and sugar.
Slightly thicker mouthfeel than some and a fullness of flavour that is missing from some other light rums.
The title says it.... the one I use for the home made cocktails
Time for Birka’s rumcruise 2019 at the Baltic Sea. Bought me mojito now and then just to get a break from all the zipping. They used the Havana Club 3yo and the drink was very refreshing.
add Ice, Cola, Lime and you can drink, in hot summer nights
With a slightly golden tint this white rum is fruity on the nose and on the palate. It starts off smooth but as it goes down, there is some slight burn. You can't really expect much complexity because it's a white rum. But I've made a few daiquiris with it and I have to say it is the best white rum I've had. It's not just a hit of ethanol. There is actually some fruity tones. A lot better than other white rum I've had. This Cuban rum is perfect for cocktails.
