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.
Un ron perfecto para mezclar, muy bien balanceado lo cual ayudará a realzar los sabores de tu cóctel sin añadirle notas picantes.
No es un ron complejo por lo que tomarlo solo no te sorprenderá sin embargo de gran calidad. Le pongo un 9 por su calidad/precio
Color : Clear
Flavour : Fresh tropical fruits with crispy citrussy notes. Light grassy flavour at the end. Some light vanilla touch
Palate : Fresh, clean.
The reference for a Mojito...
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!
Finally got a chance to try this, while out of the US, and found out what I was missing out on. It is so aromatic. It is so much better than all those neutral Puerto Rican light rums that we try to use as a substitute for this.
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.
Not a sipper obviously but as mixer it is perfect. It has flavour unlike bacardi and far superior in my opinion.
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!
Meeste blanco rums zijn puur te scherp maar deze is lekker zacht. De rum voor als we een feestje hebben.
This will make your mojito's and daiquiris better. this will make any white rum cocktail better. It's actually got flavour. So many white rums are so clean and flavourless they may as well just be vodka but this has colour and style. It's gorgeous and in many ways reminds one of a rhum agricole.
Just an average rum, for your everyday drink. great if you want to make mojitos
Not your fanciest rum, but for the price, it's really good. Nice bold smooth flavour. Recommend with a lime twist
This is the essential rum for Mojitos. Perfect taste for blending in with the mint and the lime.
Really like this havana club 3 fpr mixed drinks. Not so much for cuba libre, but for mojito it is perfect!!
Have 2bottles of this
Je ne saurais l'expliquer mais j'ai adorer boire ce rhum, en ti punch, cuba libre et même pur je le trouve vraiment très supérieure à d'autres rhum de cette gamme de prix (Saint James, charrette...). C'est sur je vais en boite dès littres de celui-là :)
As far as whites go, this is by far one of the best ones out there for those who like white rum and Coke. Has its own distinct flavour as far as whites go. Hard to find though.
Du perrier, de la menthe, de l'angostura, du sucre... vous etes a cuba !
Excellent in Mojitos.
Conservative taste, but with a certain smoothness.
A real safe bet this.
A nice, sour white rum that adds flavor to cocktails rather than disappearing like some or sticking out too much like others. Ideal in citrus cocktails. A bit pricey but for me the only better white rum is ED 3.
In einem Mojito oder Daiquiri super lecker.
Leichter sommer rum.
I like its golden shimmer. The smooth and rich taste, low price tag and availability make it a must have for all kind of mixed drinks that include white rum.
5.6? Really? Why are there so many idiots marking this down? It's not meant for drinking straight yes of course it's going to burn it's 3 years old FFS. What this is is the perfect Daiquiri rum and a stunning cocktail ingredient. Drink it as it's meant to be drunk.
I’m no authority when it comes to white rum but this stuff is good. The only other white rum I’ve had is Bacardi silver and this blows that out of the water. Good on it’s own, but shines as a mixer. I’ve mainly used it in piña coladas so if you make those buy this. For a white rum it’s definitely up there.
