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.
Ce rhum manque de tonus; le qualificatif de "mou" me vient en tête. Comme s'il avait vieilli en ayant trop chaud et trop humide (c'est une impression...). Pas mon genre de rhum.
No structure, too soft and a "humid" feel. Not my kind.
Much better than Captain Morgan and its derivatives but you can find much better rums that are just slightly pricy. In taste some hints of vanilla, cedar and tobacco. Better is mixed with cola.
This Havana rum is ok and it is a good rum for the price you pay. Not complex but a good drink. This one is also better stuff for mixing and not really a good sipper.
This is a very high bodied and coarse rum. Almost primative yet refined. It is a great drinker on the rocks. Very nice anejo, smooth and edgy, wild and unreserved. Highly recommend.
I always bring back a couple of bottles from Mexico when I go, but honestly, it is a little better with a splash of coke than as a sipping rum.
A unique bouquet full of coconut, vanilla, cedar, trace tobacco and ripe tropical fruits notes. mmm...love it!
not bad but there are better, I think you pay a lot for the name.
Very good room for flavor but it could be a lot better and could be deeper.
Great on a hot day with lots of ice, cola and lime- perfect for the beach!
Not a fan. It’s on a shelf of sprain Morgan to me.
This is a standard, typical aged ron. Not a ton of complexity or deep flavors to it, but very clean and nails the typical flavor profile.
You still can’t get this stuff in the US, so when I saw it on sale in Mexico for 15USD/bottle I stocked up. Lots of spicy notes and a good addition to most tiki drinks.
In Canada (Ontario) it is unfortunate that we are subject to a provincial government liquor monopoly and it decides what is sold. The monopoly (LCBO) does not stock better offerings from Cuba or the Dominican Republic and what LCBO does offer is jacked up price wise beyond what a private enterprise would get away with. Nevertheless, for those that enjoy the "Cuban" style of rum this or the 3 year old is what you can get in Ontario (political rant end).
So, for those of you that enjoy Cuban or Dominican Rum give this to your friends that enjoy staight rum on the rocks. It also makes a good, actually excellent "rum and coke", the only one I will drink.
香り : ココア、バニラ、西洋杉、シガー、トロピカルフルーツのニュアンスをもつ豊かで複雑な香り。
味わい : 暖かみのあるココアや、ブラウン・スパイスの豊かな風味。深く滑らかな味わい。
フィニッシュ : まろやかでしっかりとした、熟成感のある余韻。
Lo encuentro demasiado fuerte, tendré que probar rones con más envejecimiento para que sean menos salvajes
Great rum with tones of dark chocolate, leather and tobacco
This tastes mainly of molasses, and alcohol. And some sherry possibly - or some wine. C'mon - Cuba deserves better.
preis leistung stimmt überhaupt nicht... pur kann ich ihn nicht geniessen.. er schmeckt mir allerdings gut gemixt.. für das ist er mir aber zu teuer..
Only as a cuba libre. Not neat. Good for a starter but not for a regular rum drinker. I like it when i intent to drink a lot of cuba libre. Quite standard
Lovely sipping rum which is a must in any home bar. One of my favourites for a night out on the town. Good value. Must buy.
Un ron nada memorable, si lo compras en Cuba tiene una buena relación calidad-precio, pero poco más. Es el típico ron que regalas cuando vienes de viaje, pero del que no presumirías delante de nadie que supiera mínimamente sobre ron.
My favourite rum is Legendario 7 year and Havana Club 7 year is very similar in taste. Definitely a delight to drink for anybody who likes sweet rum.
Is a pretty traditional cuban rum, from what I have tasted. Good, especially with a cigar.
Aroma starts as molasses and some leather. After sitting for a few minutes becomes all molasses. Can sip, but not the most complex.
Makes a fine Cuba libre, hard to tell where the molasses of the rum ends and the carmel of coke starts. Yum. Mixes well with lots of stuff.
A good rum at a good price
