Taste 5/10. Not very bad, not good, if you dont have more-any good option to drink it is a simple-bad choice....

I went to a well stocked rum bar today to try several rums in half ounce pours each. Just as I was about to finish, the bartender showed me this one along with it's 3 year old cousin. My eyes lit up with delight. My memory from reading these reviews told me to try this 7 year old and the bartender agreed with me. This sure beats taking a cruise to Cuba to get a bottle. At any rate, it wound up as my favorite of all five rums sampled at the bar. Since the legendary Don Pancho had something to do with it's creation a quarter of a century ago, it reminded me of his very own Don Pancho 8 Year from Panama. However, I can get that one much more easily here in the states. This Havana 7 is some smooth with extremely little added sugar. There is no after burn in this dry aged rum. The bottle was also very recently opened so it had not had time to breathe in the bottle. Did I ever luck out today!!!!

this is the bottle that eased me into the world of rum. mostly drink this with coke. on it's own is ok but not great.

edit: will put this at an 8 coming from a 6. over time I've really started to appreciate the specific tobacco/ leathery tones while drinking neat. also, by tasting other more expensive rums with less taste, this bottle gained in appreciation by me.

A lovely 7 year old with an even lovelier price. This rum has no room for disappointment, whether you drink it at the end of a long day, a family gathering, a party with friends or next to a nice cigar on the balcony in the sunshine. It doesn't want to look more than what is - no fancy bottle, but still distinctive; and it doesn't want to offer more - an easy drinking Bajan style rum with perfectly balanced flavors, exceptional scent and one of the smoothest finish. And of course, no added sugar! Commies or not, they still know how to make quality rums in Cuba.

I found this Rum to have strong almost bitter flavours, unlike the Havana Club Especial which is very sweet and mellow . It is a lovely Rum though, very easy to sip on.

Try this with a cigar and some coffee... the three pair together like a trip to Havana. :)

The seven year old Havana is a pleasent rum, borg for shopping and cocktails.

Probably on my 4th or 5th bottle by now. My staple aged rum, easily available in Brazil. Since it’s aged on used barrels, it’s good for sipping but don’t lose its mixability. A must have.
