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.
Maybe my bottle was a little bit too old, but I can't recommend the 7 year old Havana Club.
- nice colour in the glass
- sweet taste with a long finish
- pungent alcoholic smell
Overall rating: average rum... without the penetrating smell it could be easily 7 or 8 points. Can't be used for a classic tasting but is drinkable when thinned with some coke, but the price-performance ratio is not the best, just for this purpose.
Da Citty-Park i Flensburg havde denne på tilbud til sølle 130 kr, slog jeg til.
Forventer mig ikke meget af den og vil blive brugt som mixer rom.

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
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.
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.
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
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.
