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.
Definitely has a lot going on. I didn't get as much of the tobacco flavor as others had mentioned, but I've never smoked, so maybe I didn't know what I was looking for. Woodsy and sharp, the flavors changed over time as I drank it. Well rounded and deep, very different than any other rum I've had.
I've grown to appreciate this rum as a mixer for my rum and comes. It's not the greatest but it does a great job a get together with friends. Add a little like juice and it's a great Cuba Libre
Smooth bot very exciting rum. Smells very flat. Didn't interest me at all
Should have gone with something a bit older. Bit smoky, which is nice if you wanna light up a cigar.
a rum that makers you smile and want more, the sweets and vanilla tones keep climbing allong the Havana line. But in this rum Your mouth gets smacked with flavour.
for mig er dette helt klart den bedste rom til din cola, på lige fod med en el dorado 12`
Nice rum. Probably a 6 but gave it a 7 taste better when you are sitting on a beach.
It's my favourite of all rum 7 years aged. Every day after dinner. I love hints of tobacco and chocolate. A must have in my cabinet! Recommended for those like me, loves the Cuban-rum flavor.
I'm sure part of the my enjoyment of Havana Club was the thrill of acquiring it...had to wait for friends to come back from a cruise or such. But I still really found it to be a great mix with Coke. Rum and Coke is my go-to cocktail, and using Havana Club was definitely more interesting of a flavor than just plain ole Bacardi.
un bon rhum à déguster sec mais pas non plus un indetournable
a disappointment to me I want more out of that rum. It's nice but need to be a little more complex.
Can be drink alone or in cocktails
The spices aren't overly powerful and not that smooth on its own, but goes great in coke
It satisfies just the minimum requirements to say: "Yes, it is a rum to drink out of coktail"... but nothing else!
Smooth, sweet and then spicy.
A Rum for every occasion, to mix or to sip. For me a stock bottle
happily made my way through the bottle, mainly in daiquiris, but it just lacks the oomph you get with more complex rums
Fantastic mixer, can even be consumed straight up if you're up for it. I am however beyond that point.
Probably the bottle that made many of us look beyond the regular cuba libre.
I expected a soft and smooth rum. The true is that, its a rum with a lot of fine flavours, with a too strong bite. I prefer the Bacardi 8.
After being recommended this 7 year, I was disappointed when this rum didn't deliver on taste. Too harsh and confusing to pick up single flavours straight, but bearable with cola.
This is the golden boy rum to have for sipping (commercially available at a reasonable price) if you are a Cuban living abroad and don't get to travel to the island often. I really like the strong smell of the HC7. Like the taste as well although one still finds the harshness that characterizes most of the Cuban rums I have tasted/being able to afford. Such harshness sometimes makes it a non-sipper to citizens from other countries. What I cannot cope with is the cheap bottle cap. Its also not too sweet like the Demerara ED family but not a great value for ~33CAD in Ontario, Canada.
Great for mixing but other cheaper HCs will do the job as well while minimizing the damage to your wallet.
its a nice rum to mix with coke not expensive but not cheap eather
Pure alcohol, a bit too harsh for my taste/throat. Frankly speaking, I don't believe this rum is aged for 7 long years. My guess would be 7 weeks. Seven years in a wood, in Cuba's hot climate, would make it a wonderful, smooth-sipping drink. Just look at any bourbon, as a production reference.
meget skarp i smagen og meget sprittet. Ikke rigtig nogle noter og toner der får lov at trænge igennem
Decent legs, good tropical aroma with some heat coming through. Soft and semi-smooth on the palate with some wood to finish.
