Sehr guter Mix-Rum, durchaus auch pur zu trinken (in der Not).
In der Nase und Gaumen ein wenig streng, Karamell, Toffee.
Abgang schnell weg.

Very good mix rum, quite pure to drink (in the emergency).
In the nose and palate a little strict, caramel, toffee.
Finish quickly away.

I first tried Havana Club 7 when someone left a bottle at my place last year. He lives in Calgary (I'm in Ontario) so I assumed he wasn't coming back for it. I wasn't expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised. HC7 didn't blow me away, but it works well neat or on the rocks, as well as in a rum Old Fashioned or a rum Manhattan. There are some nice leather aromas, some molasses, dark roast coffee, brown sugar sweetness, and a touch of vanilla and bananas. Interesting enough to sip on its own and affordable enough to offer to your friends and relatives who will drown it in Coca-Cola.

When i went to Cuba, this rum was the first one i tried. You taste notes of tobacco, leather, caramel, and you can taste the bourbon finish at the end. It has just enough burn and it goes great with cigar.

I can tell it’s nice stuff, but I’m just not a huge fan of the molasses flavour.

Si vous allez à Cuba, c'est la bouteille à ramener. Pas cher pour un rhum de cette qualité, goût caramel cacao.

I got this as a gift from relatives, before 2010. Mediocre and basic, with the only thing noteworthy about it, being its bite. They also brought cigars. Both of those were being sold dirt cheap, at their production sites. My Montechristo and Cohiba were actually wasted, being puffed right next to this. I was never good in nice pairings, anyway...

An important preface is that this rum is available in Denmarkf for 22€ regularly - that's 26 $, so I'm not judging it from the rarity of the American market, in which case I'd probably rate it 5 ot 6. It's pretty good for a Cuba libre, maybe even Dark & Stormy or other drinks of low ABV. For a Cuba Libre, it is however EXCELLENT - the best I've had yet. I wouldn't use it for tiki or other other rum forwards drinks, but for a "base", it's very good for the money.

EDIT: Actually, after tasting it neat a few times, I've upped my score to an 8. My current opinion is that in Denmark, you DO NOT get a better rum for 170 dkk/22 euros. It's as good as a millonario on the rocks, and at little more than half the price. The only downside is if you're expecting a classic cuban room with heavy wood, leather and tobacco, this one is more in line with the sweeter Dominican Republic rums (though not quite as sweet).

HC7 and Ice only doesn´t taste the best but for mixing it´s okay i wouldn´t recommend it... There are better rums for the price.
