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.
In Poland most of the restaurant have poor selection of rums only like bacardi, captain morgan, and at least some of them have Havana 7-years, then I know I can order one and drink it without vomiting. But I am happy that in stores I can pull the trigger on so many better rums, and I know that I won't buy this bottle
Final verdict: I will not buy it again
There was a time I reveled in sneaking this back from Europe, Canada or Mexico. Oh, naughty-naughty, Cuban products were taboo in the States of U!
Then I mixed it with Dr. Pepper on a whim one day because I had a glut of the 7-year on a visit to Houston and couldn't check a bag on the return flight. My, that put everything into perspective. It is, truly, a great mixer with anything sweet, like the aforementioned soda pop. Down the hatch!
But to drink it alone, or on the rocks, is to fool oneself this ol pre-revolution Bacardí family product is a standard-bearer of Cuban rum. Which is in general, btw, just industrial rum.
this rum can be drunk only in a cuba libre, it is not suitable to drink smooth because it is too dry,
not sweet and not very fragrant.
to drink in abundance with the coke to get drunk
To me this rum was smooth, flavorful, great neat or with ice. I had the pleasure of being in Cuba for a couple weeks and this is a rum I could always drink and enjoy. Great with a cigar. Great spice notes and flavors and all around great rum. I brought a bottle back for Thanksgiving with family and it disappeared...quick...everyone liked it.
Cuban rum is on the menu tonight. Trying the 7 year. It has a beautiful copper hue and sticky legs clinging to the side of the glass. The nose is full of tropical fruits including coconut and banana. You can also pick up some deeper notes of tobacco and wood. There is no offensive alcohol burn. Unfortunately this rum disappoints a little on the pallet. It's delightfully smooth and dry, with pleasant but short finish. However, I was hoping the flavors would match the nose, but there was very little sign of those flavors. I'm looking forward to trying some of the other offerings from this brand, and I'm hopeful that they offer more depth of flavor. 🥃
