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

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.

This mixes well, but tastes good on its' own. Sweet and floral. Enjoyable. Kind of a nice change.

À boire avec accompagnement, beau rhum brun rapport qualité/prix.

Good strong tobacco and molasses notes. A little hot but makes a fine daiquiri.

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.

As smooth as silk a lovely little rum very flavoursome

Posted 3 months ago by Dan from United Kingdom with 32 ratings

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.

Prefer Havana Club 7 but this is a decent rum at a reasonable price

Posted 3 months ago by Jonbee56 from United Kingdom with 11 ratings

Quite average, nothing to write home about, on par with Morgan spiced, just a little bit sharper.

Posted 3 months ago by Bob from United States with 72 ratings

Even more sugar, lighter tasting vanilla, more caramel, and still tobacco dominates.

Very tasty in cuba libre. Solid value for this price.

Typical Cuban light carmel flavor and to be used as a mixer

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.
