Havana Club Añejo Especial is a blend of rums aged for up to five years produced from the fermented molasses of sugar cane harvested in Cuba. The molasses is combined with yeast and water, distilled using column stills, and aged in white oak barrels.
Havana Club was founded in 1878 by Jose Arechabala and later nationalized after the Cuban Revolution in 1959.
One of our favourite rum to drink neat in Cuba. It’s smooth, sweet & easy going. There is body here but it’s not too heavy. Defo was our go go out there.
I had bought a few bottles of this at an auction. Didn’t know what to expect but the price I bought it at it didn’t matter. It was a great drink mixed with coke. A little to harsh to drink on its own but to have a few mixed drinks on a weekend perfect.
Smooth beginning, with a slight warm bite on the back of the mouth. Almost a warm cinnamon note. Enjoyable sipping neat or with coke.
There are better rums for sale but still if this is in discount I sometimes buy it to mix it. Nothing special.
Today’s rum is Havana Club Especial Añejo. I tried this rum with just soda water and ice, and it was very nice and smooth. It was not too sweet and had a very nice after taste. Being Caribbean it tastes much like Mount Gay but not quite as sweet. I haven’t tried this rum with coke, but I think it would be a good mixer. If making a rum based cocktail Havana Especial would be ideal. A nice aged rum
Havana Club Especial Añejo is a product of Cuba and is available at First Choice at $47.00 for a 700ml bottle.
This is a rum I have to keep me away from my quality bottles. That being said, this is not a bad rum at all. It is very cheap however can still be drank neat and is still quite delicious. For the price, you cannot complain about this rum.
I think this is intended for a strictly mixing use, even if the cuban one is nicer than the one sold in extra cuban terroir. Average at best.
Fair priced rum.
I never understand what they mean with "double oaked" but the taste is alright! Not the best for sipping but really good for mixing and your not rum loving friends.
It may not be my favourite rum, but it's pretty good for the price range it finds itself. Easy enough to drink and easy to pick up without spending a fortune, but that's as far as it goes for me.
This is what HC is, best quality for best price, This rum is well balanced, could be sip, but much better for drinks and cocktails. Tt is really underrated. Thats good rum for beginners.
