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.
Tasty, but not quite great
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
I kind of like it. It is a very simple "hefty" rum, not all too complex. Not as oily on the tongue like really outstanding rums. Still a good sip. But: overpriced for what you get.
Have been dying to try some, now I have. Not disappointed in the least! Sweet yet not too sweet. Nice and smooth...gorgeous light amber color. I'm drinking it straight with no problem. Would stand up well to a cube.
Prima rum uit Cuba.
Zeven jaar op eikenhouten vaten gerijpt en dat ruik, zie en proef je. De cacao, karamel en tabak smaak maakt het helrmaal af voor mij.
Een zacht rummetje die puur goed te drinken is en écht lekker met Cola.
Better than the Havana Club Anejo Especial and worth the small extra.
Really great for making Cuba Libre (Rum and Cola). '
Not good enough for sipping in my taste.
8/10 is for mixing with cola, ice and a squeeze of lemon
Would be 5/10 for sipping

"It’s very hot, spicy and very bitter. Luckily the burn isn’t bad and very short. Subsequent sips are much smoother."
