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

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

This rum is non offensive and is a great rum. You know what you are getting and it's a step up from captain morgen

Очень приятный, в меру сладкий, в меру терпкий. Сложный вкус/аромат, присутствует жжёный сахар , а также кофе и ваниль. Пьётся легко и приятно, оставляет приятное послевкусие. Единственный недостаток - в аромате и вкусе спиртяга таки чувствуется.

Very nice, moderately sweet and harsh. A complicated taste and aroma with caramel, vanilla and a touch of coffee. A good sipper with a pleasant aftertaste. The only shortcoming is that you can still sense spirit harshness in taste and aroma.

Un classique des rhums cubains, à boire de préférence en cocktail

The better version of Havana's 3y old: more aromatic, a good base for mixing.

Havana Club is, for good and bad, one of the most known brands of rum in the world. I haven´t tried much of their rums, but had a chance to try the Anejo Especial, which I, of course, didn´t say no to.

Nose: Vanilla, butterscotch, ginger and orange
Taste: Vanilla, pineapple, caramel, toast and some mild spice to round it of.
Overall: This is a pretty ordinary rum, that is taken down a notch by a very sweet taste, that is dominated by vanilla. This is a fine rum for a (sweet) Cuba Libre, but I would not recommend drinking it neat because of the overwhelming sweetness.
