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.
After reading many good reviews I had to try this rum. It is nice on the nose. That's the only positive for me. Some see this as a smooth rum. This is not smooth at all. It burns and it is bad for stomach, mine started to protest right away. Thai Sangsom can give it a lesson in smoothness for 10 euros and it is also much much easier on your stomach. This Havana rum has some strange woody aroma which is disgusting to me. And it never goes away. I don't think this is a good mixer. This woody aroma is so strong, you have to like it to be happy with any drink made of this rum. I strongly recommend trying before buying. This was my first and also my last bottle.
This is a solid rum, but it has No character and has a bit of burn going down it is great on sale but nothing special.
Nicht wirklich viel besser als sein 3 jähriger Bruder.
Outstanding quality for price, nothing bad to say about it, very versatile it is good for Cuba libres, highballs, rum and coke or even for sipping(as I normally drink it) . In mouth I find prune and raisin like flavors, molases and light wood, with a slight tobacco finish. You wont go grong with this one
This was a gift from my beautiful wife on her cruise to Cuba. This is the Rum that made me want to have this as my drink of choice after dinner or just shooting the breeze with friends.
Den gør ikke meget væsen af sig - men er skøn ren en hverdags aften. Tydelig duft og smag af “labre larver”.
Para mi este ron define perfectamente la elaboración cubana. Rones poco dulces, recios, con un toque "bucanero", los paladares más finos tendrán que mezclarlo. Pero yo creo que se puede beber tranquilamente a palo seco. Acompáñalo con un buen habano y tendrás una muy buena experiencia.
A great spiced rum with a whack of different flavors to make the perfect Cuba Libre or a variety of mixed cocktails.
My Fire&Blood, the everytime&anywhere rum accompanied by my Partagas, and a memory of Havana oldtown nights👌
Recuerdo aún mi primer sorbo, es casi una leyenda pero a medida que he ido probando rones ha ido retrocediendo, no es que sea malo pero para el precio que tiene 15'9€ los hay bastante más de mi gusto, no soy de mezclar (solo para el fin tónica) así que no lo mezclaría.
This is a pretty tasty rum, with a surprising aftertaste. But also not super.
This one is hard to find locally, so every time we travel internationally, we've made a point of picking this up at the airport... It's a pretty OK single sipper but GREAT for a rum old fashioned or an aged twist on a daiquiri, it really gets going with some citrus!
Sweet and buttery nose with hints of toffee, honeycomb and coffee, a little spice and notes of orchard fruits. Rich and complex flavours which make you think of a cigar box made out of cedarwood, but also, aromas of guava and banana leaves with more toffee.
One of the best rum old fashioned you could make. Strong and mellow.
Pretty good value for a cuban rum, would recommend for cocktails more than sipping.
Cuba libre ok. .
Not really any aftertaste, better than the standard Havana Club, very ‘moorish’
I like it mixed with coke and a lime. I wouldn’t count it among my favorites.
Great taste and easily consumed as a mixer. I always look for it on the shelves/menu. Definitely not your every weekend purchase but worth it.
Sweetened, similar flavors to Bacardi 8 but smoother and no nail polish flavor. Vanilla and Tobacco flavor for sure.
Not a big fan, a definite mixer for me, Doesn't have the smoothness of the diplomatico's
Doesn’t present a lot of flavor. I use it as a mixer with coke. Tastes good if you mix 3 parts coke to 1 Havana Club
As the title suggests, i wouldnt drink this as a sipping rum. i like it for mixing, great in a cuba libre or mojito.
