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.
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.
Best one for coctails for this price.

When you order mojito in Cuba, this is what you get in your cocktail.
There’s a reason this rum is used in La Bodeguita and El Floridita in Havana. It makes pretty good cocktails. I don’t recommend this one straight or on the rocks. And: value for money.
Sharing the distinctive Havana Club flavor, when it comes down to the price, this is the best cocktail rum, you can get. I have always enjoyed it, and if you're planning on getting into rums, this is a great one to start with.
Pleasant rum. Full mouth. Nice aromas. Fruits, honey. Perfect for cocktails
Been enjoying this one since the days in The Fish in Cheltenham back in 1999
A major characteristic of Cuban rums is that fiery alcoholic burn upfront and after, but there are a few pleasant tasting notes: A little bit of that saccharine demerara sugar, esters briefly evoking dried tropical fruits and a vanilla aftertaste. This is not a first choice sipper, but fine as a shooter, and apropos of cocktails, the daiquiri and mojito will surely improve in flavor toward their intended form.
I prefer to mix it with Cola, ice, slice of lime and a few drops of vanilla extract.
I like the taste and effect. No bad hangover from this one. It's readily available everywhere in Germany. Quite regularly for 10 Euros a bottle.
This rum ultimately meets all of its expectations and has more of a distinct taste than many rums in its class. It is more fruity and functional than many other whites out there. It serves as a well mixer and provides the Cuban taste called for in many great drinks. Cost and function are strengths.
Actually Quite useable in mixing. After some drinking it develops a sour burn in throat, so be careful. Nothing remarkable, but a completely ok rum for serving your guests. To be avoided straight.
Kostovka priamo z cuby. Jemne nasladla zaujimava chuť.
Harsh, sharp, chemical-ey & unpleasant. I've been working my way up from the cheapest that's available locally (semi-rural Tasmania, so not much) and this was one of the cheapest (around A$50). Yucky.
Because of its mild Taste, great for mixing. Sweet , so don't put together much sugar in it.
Denne klassiker har en høj værdig i forhold til prisen. Den nydes aller helst on the rocks eller i drinks da smagen er lidt mere skarp og sprittet end den mørke 7 års. Man går aldrig galt i byen med denne rom der til prisen er langt mere værd end andet "mainstream" rom.
this one is ok for drinks. I would not drink it otherwise.
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.
Tasty rum, best served on the rocks or in a beautiful Cuban cocktail. One of the best light rums, but I prefer a more aged rum
Festive season give you an excuse to try different runs, yay! Some sadly are not really worth the effort.
This never disappoints me. Clean, flavoursome and versatile. Would I drink it neat? Probably not. Would I be happy to have some? Absolutely.
Dette er ikke helt min smak. litt enkel i smak og kun for mix i drinker.
Exactly for Cuba libre, Mojito. Only for mix. Venceremos!
The ideal Rum for Cocktails. Not really for pure Drinking
Citrus, vanilla and oak, a little spice and lemon and a delicate nutty note.
Not to drink smooth.
Only for mojito, Cuba libre and other cocktails.
I have doubts that it is aged in the barrels.
