This rom is really good for mixers or cakes.The aftertaste is to alkoholic for a sipping rum, I think.

Walk, do not run to get this European barroom standard. It serves a specific purpose of simplicity and that is the brand offers standard fare at accessible prices. This barely reaches the standard fare level. Simply too boozy tasting for 80 proof. It can be non offensive in a drink if it is well masked by other ingredients but ultimately the question must be asked, why buy this? Answer: If there is only more commercial crap available. My estimation is this is trumped by dozens of others...

The Havana Club Anejo Especial si the one that got me into rum. It has such a distinctive flavor, that if you would put a blind on my eyes, I could guess it from any other rum. It's simply unique. It might not be a top rum, but for me, personally, it will always have a special spot. Not really for sipping, in my opinion, but very good for cocktails and mixing. I do believe that this is what it has always meant to be anyway. I am a bit sad that they have changed the design of the bottle now. As a price / quality ratio, you can't go wrong with it.

Really sweet rum with a harsh alcohol taste. Best served on the rocks or in a mixed drink

A great mixing rum with a gentle, Cuban smell. I found it to be more flexible and less overpowering than the cigar-ish Havana Club 7. It makes a stunning Cuba Libre (or plain rum and coke), and is an excellent staple for the drinks cabinet.

Rum and coke. Not too much to say about it. Average and a bit better than the blanc.

Kostovka priamo z cuby. Táto Havana a moc neoslovila, ale piť sa dá.

Just the rum to get you into Havana Club rums. Medium dark, for me a perfect mixer.

Rum nemá príliš príjemnú vôňu...silný alkoholový dozvuk. Málo sladký. Chuť mi pripomína až whisky. Nič extra na vychutnanie....skôr do miešaných nápojov.

Met de (hele redelijke) prijs in het achterhoofd blijft dit een favoriet voor een lekker glas rum, gewoon doordeweeks zonder franje. Kan eventueel nog heel goed in de mix maar ook lekker na opwarmen in de hand met wat drupjes water.

Probably my favourite session rum so far. I look forward to discovering an alternative that can eclipse this beauty. Value for money assured.
