Havana Club 7-Year Rum is distilled from fermented molasses and aged in charred white oak barrels for seven years.
Havana Club rum is still made in Cuba - where the company was founded by José Arechabala in 1878 and then nationalized in 1959 after the Cuban Revolution. Havana Club is now jointly owned by Pernod Ricard and the Cuban government.
Tasty, but not quite great
This is the base historical rum ,well balanced, not so spicy and not sweet.You can drink it on the rocks and for serious coctails (old fashioned )
Average in average with an average note. A bit dark, a bit complex, not too sweet, not too bitter and the price is ok as well. For me too average to buy it again.
After I began to explore rums, I started to sample everything I could. Light, dark, spiced, aged, blends, etc. This was one of those exploration purchases; unplanned and not researched.
"Hey I liked that 3yr old Havana Club, this must be good too." It was good, but not anything special or overly memorable.
Nice aroma without any standouts, flavor was pleasant with no memorable notes or experiences, and a nice finish.
Overall a good drink, you could certainly do worse... or better. If you are looking for an experience, move on past. If you want a solid rum and coke, this will do nicely.
I was expecting something more. Not bad, not great. Very smoky, which I normally like but here not so much. Wont buy it again: will either save pennies and go with the less expensive Havana Club 3 years or save up for a really exceptional rum.
Den suverænt bedste mørke rom til en rom og cola. Den koster en del, men syntes stadig den er pengene værd. Den er ikke så god at drikke ren.
I tried this straight up and it's got a musky taste to it. Can't put my taste bud on it but it doesn't cut it as a sipper. Now as a mixer I think this is the best rum that I know of for a rum and coke. Friends kept bringing it back as a gift for house sitting and I have a lot of it. Well enough to last through the travel embargo to Cuba because of Covid.

"It’s very hot, spicy and very bitter. Luckily the burn isn’t bad and very short. Subsequent sips are much smoother."
