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.
Great rum for casual drinking. Good for drinks and cocktails and even drinkable as it is. It has a strong smell of alcohol which is bad but its not something what could ruin its taste. I doubt that for this price you can get another good rum like this
Unrefined but for the price it's incredible, I've paid €12 a bottle on occasion. After Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva this is my most bought bottle.
Also genuinely better than the 7.
Has a little more complexity than a Santiago de Cuba Anjeo which seems to score higher ratings but I found a little bland. Originally I rated this as a 6 but over time this has grown on me more so raising to a 7
Ce rhum a une petite amertume qui se combine bien avec la menthe.mais un peu moins fin que le havana 7 ans qui est ideal pour cela.un peu moins cher que le 7 ans c un bon rapport qualite prix.mais pas pour boire deul.note 6.2.
I have tested this one both in drinks ans straight, but prefer it in different drinks. I must say that it works straight also.
Wow, mein neuer Lieblingsrum für Cuba Libre, sehr feine Vanillenoten, perfekter Mixrum, leider in der Schweiz nicht erhältlich...?!
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.
Weak aroma of vanilla, alcohol, barrels, flowers, raisins.
The taste is not easy: alcohol softened, herbs, honey, barrel.
A little burning and bitterness, excessive sweetness.
It is drunk very much at ease.
This is a good mixer rum with some coke and lime. Bought my first bottle at duty free coming back from Mexico and wasn't disappointed. Better than other bottles that might cost $ 2 less. Cabinet keeper.
I actually slightly prefer this one over the 7 yr old Havana Club. This is a little more vibrant and playful and subtle. In the 7 yr old I find the flavours to be very condensed. Also: every bar in the world has this and it is always a good option when they have nothing else.
