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

Vraiment bon, le goût vanillé est très appréciable, un rhum qui n'agresse pas la gorge, qui se boit bien :)

not a sipper, but pretty standard for cuba libre.

This was lovely when mixed. Too potent for me to enjoy straight or over ice though. Enjoyable rum.

du tout venant acceptable pour un cocktail rien de plus

Nice rum with ice and a slice of lime.

if you look for a cheap daily sipper,7Yo Cubans are a good start. In my opinion the 7Yo is a better choice

Um beim mixen nicht zu den teueren Havanas greifen zu müssen, kann man hier auf diesen Rum zurückgreifen. 5 Jahre gereift. Nicht so sanft und vollmundig wie die älteren

Fine for drinking / sipping straight / neat, tho a bit harsh in aftertaste without ice. Truly pleasant on the rocks, however, with a soft vanilla sweetness shy of 'Captain' levels ... even if the 'Añejo Especial' - 'Special Aged' Havana Club is not extremely subtle or complex. But it is at a great value point, given modest price, and superb drinkability with an ice cube or two. - And don't forget, Ché Guevara's final gift from Fidel Castro on 22 March 1967, shortly before he was killed, was some Churchill-sized Cuban cigars and 3 bottles of Havana Club rum ... It's always fun to drink something that USA-Americans still can't legally enjoy : - )

Added a little water, and it was fine. Better for drinks!

This rum is ideal for Cuba Libre. It develops lots of rum taste but leaves room for Coke and lime. The price is a little bit high but if you get it cheap, don't hesitate.

You can get away with using this for your cocktail party. But don't serve it as a sipper.

Color : Bright amber
Flavour : Ripe fruits, cacao, chocolat notes, light herbal touch, banana
Palate : Gentle, medium length, well balanced

I like to use it in cocktail, pairing it with the 3yrs old in tiki drinks.

Makes a great rum and coke 1:1 ratio

This is where you should start with Havana - go no cheaper or lower because it just isn't worth it.
Saying that this is a decent mixing rum for when you a long drink does nicely

I live in Asia, where rum is hard to find, so I drank this one neat while looking around for something better. It's probably best as mixer (it makes a decent Cuba Libre), but I think there are better ones. Only buy this if the price is good or availability of other rums is poor.

Actually it's to my suprise a smooth rum what I haven't expected, however this is still a mixer and not a sipper to me.

Nice like a 3 years old, but a little bit expensive.

this one is realy nice in al sort of coctails!

Posted over 7 years ago by Nick from United States with 54 ratings

A nice rum for either sipping or mixing. Doesn't overpower the mixer.

Sits well in the speed rail, has enough character to give flavour without dominating.
