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.
I don't have a lot to compare this with in terms of style, so on it's own merit it is a good rum, works with cigars and a little ice or as I generally prefer - in cocktails. Makes some decent simple cocktails but it can be lost in the more complex ones. A good balance and fairly easy drinking making this a solid all-rounder.
Decent rum for the price if you can get it close to the border. I wouldn't go out of my way for it, but it's a fun bottle to keep on the shelf.
As the title says. Nice rum, tastes okay, but I have other favorites which I prefer if I buy a rum in this price class.
drank this quite a bit, trumps every white rum i ever tasted, but noting to get excited about, take a goslings any day to mix over this rum.
I think this is the best entry level to understand aging mechanism, also peculiar because in Cuba is a lot better than elsewhere (I’d give it 7 bottles to cuban one), where is present a prominent alcoholic note. Golden and round, best to start understanding in more complex rums.
Taste great with Coke, muddled lime and lots of ice. Of course you can have it in alot of diffrent rum drinks since it's a bit dry. Can be used as an avec if you are out of everything else that you normaly serve as avec.
.....but not a typical one. I like the effort Havana Club has put in making this; an affordable more complex rum without additives or loads of sugar. And it is all there; vanilla, dried fruit, tobacco and leather. It is promising but it should have been a little more balanced and a little less rough around the edges to become a really pleasant sipper for me. For less money the Mulata 7yo, though less complex, is better balanced, more refined and much more enjoyable than this HC.
Kudos to HC for making this but for me they still have some work to do about their 7yo because as it is now there is no place for this rum in my cabinet.
This rum I can put side by side with good whiskey or brandy. It is strong, nice smell, nice aroma but not sweet like Diplomatico. I like it neat.
I don't know is it same like this from Puerto Rico.
Outstanding quality for price, nothing bad to say about it, very versatile it is good for Cuba libres, highballs, rum and coke or even for sipping(as I normally drink it) . In mouth I find prune and raisin like flavors, molases and light wood, with a slight tobacco finish. You wont go grong with this one
Para mi este ron define perfectamente la elaboración cubana. Rones poco dulces, recios, con un toque "bucanero", los paladares más finos tendrán que mezclarlo. Pero yo creo que se puede beber tranquilamente a palo seco. Acompáñalo con un buen habano y tendrás una muy buena experiencia.
