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.
This rom is really good for mixers or cakes.The aftertaste is to alkoholic for a sipping rum, I think.
For me this one is perfect to experiment with! It’s soft enough on the tastebuds so when you want to add other things you can easily manipulate the rum! So the 7/10 for me is When you mix it up!
Eigenlijk is alles van Havana Club goed. Ook deze is lekker weg te drinken. Niet al te zoet (jammer ;)).
Smooth balanced and enjoyable. Of the 4 bottles I brought back from Cuba, this was my favorite. I could never place the flavor though.
Drank a lot of this while living in Angola and was only 1usd a bottle, lol. How i wish i could buy at that price again. Great with coke.
Ok for mixed drinks I guess, since I prefer the pure stuff and rarely mix, not one I will order again..
was a gift on our wedding day in Cuba. . enjoyed over rocks. .had mixed.. but was only ok
Kein herausragender Rum zum Genießen, aber zum Mixen ( Cuba Libre) völlig ausreichend.
taste is more spicy then what you expect wen you smell it. Tasted pure, no ice or mixed
De gewone standaard rum. Goed om in cocktails te mixen of puur te drinken.
Anejo Especial nie je nič pre rumových fajnšmekrov a vychutnávačov rumu. V takejto cenovej relácii sa ani nič lepše nedá nájsť. Nemá ani extra význam hodnotiť senzorické vlastnosti, ja ho používam len ako súčasť miešaných nápojov, najlepší je v Cuba Libre a po piatich Cuba Libre sa dá piť aj sám. Ušetríte Colu.
This is just a standard rum. For an Australian, this shits on Bundaberg but it needs to be mixed.
Es un ron fuerte y ligero, sin cuerpo. Solo aceptable si lo usas para cubatas, pero no recomendable en mojitos.
Havana Club Anejo Especial is the base for most bars around the world producing quality dark rum mixed drinks, but do not try this rum for neat sipping, since it's not created for that purpose. Had it recently at a bar in Key West FL to confirm its score of 5. Pretty good with Coke, better with Ginger Ale.
I would rate it between the 3 and 7yrs old edition. It is ok and goes well for mixing but I dont have high regards for it as a sipping rum.
Inside the attractive bottle and label lies a rum that, To my taste, qualifies as a "well drink." A rather timid bouquet leads to an underwhelming palate dominated by the flavor of molasses. The finish is brief and raspy. I found it best as a base for a caipirissima, the rum version of a capirinha. The lime juice and oil blend well with this rum. In sum, ok as a bar bottle but there are better, more balanced and well-rounded choices out there.
Agreed, I've had better rums. But that doesn't necessarily make it a bad one. Nice to sip on a weeknight. I'll have to try the Fanta suggestion once. I would never thought of that myself...
Acidic, fruity smell. Flavour quite balanced but light, a bit dull. Not much to complain about but not the best either.
Un ron decente para mezclar y muy buena opción para el cuba libre.
This rum was a bit too harsh for me straight up and it has a pretty strong smell too. It works well for making a good Cuba Libre though.
I payed €17 for this bottle and it confirms that you get what you pay for. Want a nice rum sipping experience? To paraphrase mr. Kenobi: "this is not the rum you're looking for".
Nothing special, but taste is good for this budget. Especially when you wait a few minutes the rum will blend with oxygen and the taste gets softer (less alcohol taste).
Another rum from HC that's easy to drink.
I don't get the same alcohol smell that most people seem to mention with this rum. Maybe a little vanilla.
It's got a really good colour, good legs and I don't find it too harsh when over ice.
Would make a great mixer, though I've not tried that yet.
All in all a "every day rum", that should suit most tastes.
Picked it up today, on offer in Tesco, £15.
Good taste, and but aftertaste is medium hard, dry, first opinion was more negative after Brugal Anejo, but next day I ve discovered this rum from another side, overall good
A bit more tasty than the 3yr. Would reccomend for mixing not spping
Strong alcohol smell but has a beautiful deep color. The first sip gives a strong deep sugar taste with a lot of aroma in your mouth.
The aftertaste is a bit strong but the sweetness prevails quickly after it.
Overall a nice rum that is a bit to sweet for me.
