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.
Easily consumable in a bind
I don’t understand why this rum isn’t rated higher. It’s about as good as you can get for a white rum without going overproof or chasing a hogo trip. It blows captain & bacardis white rums out of the water and is not to be confused with the other widely available white rum, made by Bacardi, which goes by the same name.
Got this from a friend. Former friend. After gifting this I decided he is not the friend for me. Both smell and taste made me decide to end the friendship. Finished with coke and never thought of this again.
My first experience with 3yr Havana Club was a gifted bottle direct from Cuba. It was a delight with some fruity (peach) notes and a smooth finish. When I replaced it with the locally available 3yr bottle, the difference was immediately evident.
While it wasnt unpleasant, it did not have the same wonderful flavors that were present in the Cuban bottle, but it did share the same smooth finish. I began to experiment with it, and this became my rum of choice for cocktails such as pina coladas.
The lightness/smoothness of the rum helps develop the flavors of the cocktail without overpowering them.
Be careful, you can make some pretty strong concoctions without an obvious alcohol taste! Definitely a staple in my cabinet for hot days and a blender.
works best with coke or rum based cocktails. tastes and smells a lot better than bacardis white rum despite residing in the same price range. you'd really have to love it though if you want to drink it pure - its clearly not meant for that. I'd pick plantations 3-star over it at any time.
