Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
Alkohol: 40 %
Aroma: Hutně kožené, rumově pralinkové aroma s ostře vystupujícím alkoholem. Štiplavá, zemitá, snad až mírně zatuchlá vůně. (82 b)
Chuť: Poměrně hrubá, štiplavá, mírně nasládlá, nijak extra plná chuť. (82 b)
Shrnutí: Měl jsem miniaturu koupenou z Diosu a jsem rád, že jsem neutrácel za celou lahev, která je běžně k dostání v supermarketech. Není to nic uhlazeného, i přes určitou výraznost mě moc nezaujal, přijde mi roztěkaný, disharmonický. Poměr výkon/cena mi přijde velmi slabý. Je spousta lepších rumů v této cenové kategorii, levněji seženete dokonce Pampero Anniversario, které je kvalitou úplně jinde.
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.
the best cuba libre you can make is with the havana club 7.
Very smooth and sweet. Nice in the summertime!
I tried it with water and a couple of ice cubes. It was smooth enough but didn't have the nice flavor of the Appletons and El Dorado rums I have tried.
Havana Club 7-year was my introduction to the rum world, and as such I have remained quite partial to it. It's very pleasant to sip.
I'm no professional so I can't tell you much about the body and these things. But I think it's the perfect rum for a round of Cuba Libres with friends.
denne rom egner sig kun til at mixe. kunne forestille mig at den var god med cola.
Meget mere er der ikke at sige om det.............. Skal ikke drikkes rent
This was my first actaul rum experience through which I started appreciating to drink rum. After a few good other bottles in the same price range I tasted it again and was quite dissapointed, it is not mild enough to keep up with the others.
Delicious when mixed. I prefer with coke. Do not like straight.
A nice flavoursome rum perfect for making Cuba libre's
Havana Club 7 Anos, it's a very famous brand in Belgium and in the world's. I have tested different kinds of havana. This one is a very good one for cocktail Like Cuba libre Or to mixed with Ginger soda (canada dry in europe).
