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
Mix with coke, in a cocktail or an old fashioned. It's the classic bar rum that everyone has tried. it's the king of the common cheap rums but that's about it. H 7 coke and lots of lime!
This rum has a bold taste and dark color. I think it makes for a hefty cocktail and thus a drink that I usually enjoy in winter.
Nice with ice, great as a mixer. A little too robust neat for me, but maybe I'll get used to it - I'm certainly willing to try and find out!
Had a bottle while in Canada. I must admit that I wasn't overwhelmed. Especially for the price. Best in a mixed drink for me.
So smooth with such great aroma on your nose ! I use 1cube to chill the the glass , dump it then 2 fingers of this great rum ! It' when you try a sip when it comes alive for me ! This one takes me back to Cuba in the 30's !
This mass produced commercial rum is decent for drinks. The taste is quite flat, but is a step up from the anejo especial or another club rum, you might pour into your cocktails.

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