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.
Tasty, but not quite great
Being retired a military medic, I have had rums from all around the world. Your rum has not got the harsh taste of molasses and can be enjoyed NEAT or with a little mix.
Price wise its a steal.
I could get to really really like this I liker it no matter how it is served.
Pernot Ricard definitely did have a reason to re-launch this Rum in Germany (and Europe??) in a new design. It is the perfect Rum for a Cuba Libre, half-half with Rum and a squeezed Lemon slice on does carve out the characteristics of this product the best! One of the seldom not very dry Rums from Cuba.
Appears a little darker than it really is!
This is one of the greatest rums I have ever tasted. Mellow tast, beautiful oak aroma. One of the finest by far. Only available in Cuba.
Smooth balanced and enjoyable. Of the 4 bottles I brought back from Cuba, this was my favorite. I could never place the flavor though.
First I felt only strong flavor of alcohol, but after that the taste transforms showing vanilla, honey and sweet wine (port?), very nice
On the rocks this is one of the best value rum there is. I always have this one around in a carafe for the everyday occasion (since I'm too cheap to go through more expensive ones while being busy with other stuff)
