Great initial smell, sweet & chocolatey. Tastes gets 8/10 for smoothness. No real sharp bite upon first sip. Nice aftertaste & only gets a 7 because the flavor, somehow doesn't live up to the odor/smell. Overall a very good rum though.

I was fortunate to get this rum as a gift from a traveling friend so, as it's inaccessible in the USA, it's got the allure of forbidden fruit. What's Cuba hiding down there? Other reviewers have noticed the smokey, leathery nose and mouth feel of this rum. I would add to that some spice which helps with the balance, but overall I find this flavor does not quite match the aroma. This rum, for me, lacks the rich, viscous feel I associate with the high end rums. So I enjoyably drink it on the rocks whenever I'm looking for a moody spirit.

I wish I could get this in the U.S., but when I head to Canada, it's my "go-to" at the bar. Just a wedge of lime, thanks. This was the rum that awakened my interest in rum beyond the usual mixers.

I found a bottle in Aruba and it is a fine sipper. I really like the strength of the Cuban rums. You can tell you are drinking a rum that means business.

I'm not a rum snob and I always mix Rum with coke and lots of ice.
With this in mind this is a nice clean rum without the backlash of the earlier havanas but with only a little more of the cost.
go for this instead of the blanco, 3 or 5 definitely but if you can't stretch to the 7 year old the anejo is a decent second choice.
This has the same favour combos as the rest of the Havana range - just a bit deeper and a bit smoother.

This is a very accessible rum. While not available in the US (at this time), it's a great rum for most people to start with. It isn't too expensive, and it's very smooth. Nothing harsh at all, save for a tiny bit of afterburn. It's the kind of rum you should buy if you only plan on stocking one bottle.

A very nice rum. First tried this rum in Cuba when on holiday. Works great in a rum and coke or with ginger ale. If you are looking for a great mixing rum that is different to the usual try this you won't be disappointed.
