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
Nose is unmistakably Havana Club, white oak, tobacco, vanilla, the taste is sweet and spicy although there is no sugar added, again tobacco, oak and vanilla, the aftertaste is tobacco, leather, cocoa. Although it is noticeably more refined than Especial, there is still a bit of the alcohol burn, but nothing which would prevent me from sipping the rum with pleasure. It can be used also as a premium mixer, it stands out in Cuba Libre very nicely. I am a sucker for this rum style, score between 7 and 8. Made in Cuba, not Puerto Rico.
This has been one of my "always on the shelf" rums for years. It`s quite light but still does have enough flavor and it`s to me a mixing rum rather than sipping even though it sips well. I just like it in mixed drinks better.
No nose. Medium colour.
Light caramel and lemon. It really is a simple rum. Very smooth and easy to drink.
I drink it on the rocks but most of my guests take it with cola.
This is differently not a rum for me. It lacks sweetness. The smell reminds me more of tequila than rum. I can drink it straight but it doesn't really give me any pleasure and I'm not sure that I would say yes if offered a glass.
For many years, the Havana Club 7 Years has been my standardgood quality rum. Perfect taken straight and in cocktails. Affordable and recommended!

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