Priemerný rum, ničím neprekvapí ani nesklame. Avšak za 15 EUR by som si vedel vybrať lepšie.

More average than my 6th grade report card, and that's sayin' something.

This surprised me. A very good sipper. Not complex, a little thin, but very smooth and flavorful. A nice finish. Bite with balance. A lot going for it.

Average rum at best, the 7 year old is much better. Fine for mixing but I don’t have a place for it at my bar.

It's solid rum, many people start with this rum but it's completely opposite than Captain Morgan for example as starter. No much sweetness or spices. It has whisky feeling because it's mostly oak that I taste.I was actually surprised by amount of oak taste. I like it it's not special but very solid and excellent for the price.

Unmistakable Havana Club with pronounced tobacco and wood in smell, taste and aftertaste. I cannot remember first time I tried this rum, but it must be some 25 years ago. I believe the recipe changed few years back and significant amount of vanilla aroma was added. Some people do not like the bottom HC product line (think 3y, Especial, 7y) smell, the body, the alcohol burn. Well, I am pretty much used to it after all these years, so I am able to sip HC Especial, no problem. There is some sugar added, I believe 20g/l is the maximum allowed by law in Cuba. Makes decent Cuba libre. Imported from Cuba.

As the title says, nice rum but no where near as the 7 year. Not as much body or taste but still a great mixer. Got into Havana rum when visiting Cuba, always a safe bet for a pleasent drink.

This is my gold standard for making cocktails (unless I need a specific profile). It's smooth but bold, it lingers but doesn't stain. I honestly feel that any improvement would overpowering its ability to work in almost any rum cocktail.
