For those of us who live in the US, but I had a bottle when on vacation in the Cayman Islands. It was a few months ago, so the details will be slightly blurred...but here goes.
This is a medium to slightly dark rum. Full bodied, but not aggressive. I felt like I was drinking "true" Rum, without a lot of additives. It was leathery, and slightly tannic (being a wine drinker, I liked that) with just enough sweetness to please me. I really enjoyed this rum, and my traveling companions did not, which was just fine with me. I din't have to try and sneak any home, and didn't have to share it. Win/Win.

This rum is a great choice when you need to balance price and quality. Good enough to stand on it's own and fantastic in cocktails. One of my favorites to keep on hand.

This rum can hold its own as a sipper neat or on the rocks, in a cocktail or as a base for a mixer. I do prefer it on the rocks. Beautiful earthy flavours and a sweet but tangy finish. Overall 7/10

As stated by other, it has a tobacco note and it's a bit stingy. Not my type of sipper but a favourite mixer.

Taste is flat and poor. Wilk be Good for mixing but price is to high.

Strong, tobacco smell that defined Cuban rums for me. Good with Coke, but less flexible than the Anejo Especial. If you want a bold Cuban, try this; but for a good Cuban mixer, the cheaper Anejo Especial gets my vote.

Just a good rum. I'm mixing it often with "cassis", a dutch soda drink with sweet blackberry's.

Can’t find a reason to drink it straight, but it’s fine with coke ( although a tad too sweet perhaps) and a lot of lime. Given the usually pretty high price there are better alternatives around for this quality. Wanted to give it a 6, but too much quality lacking. Only to be served to guests, not friends.

A more mature Havana Club medium dark rum. Stylish dark bottle invokes great expectations, but disappoints a little. Nice rum tho'.

Disappointingly peppery for a 7 years old rum but still quite good with mixers.
