Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
Picked this up as an alternative to Captain Morgan... and must say its an inferior choice for mixing and not at all as complimentary and smooth as the cheap choice for mixing rum as the Captain.
Wanted to like it, because i am a big fan of the better Havana Club rums, but this attempt to make a CM sub have gone wrong.
I'll savour the HC 7yo for my favourite mixer.
In my opinion just as good as the 15 year old Havana Club
This is the standard golden rum for good bars & pubs, often bad mixed by amateur bartenders.
It is a low cost option for shots, highballs and drinks with a lot of ingredients.
Enjoyed my "Cuba Libre"s tonight - very solid as a mixer - but not quiet there on it's own
I have nothing more to add to the title. It's a good rum to have as a basic but nothing special.
Never tried the real stuff but this is good smooth rum.
Your review – you could include things like color, aroma, body, taste, finish, spice, smoothness… really anything you want! You can also share an optional picture of the drink (or better still - you enjoying it!) by attaching a photo below.
Not top shelf, but you have to have a Cuba Libre with Cuban rum. It's a mixing rum
Decente insieme al succo alla pera per serate allegre.
Nulla di più.
I veri rum sono altri...
Ideale tot mix, best for Cuba libre. Ik do not like to drink thuis one pure.
Nice and oaky with hints of vanilla and a little chocolate on the palate. Finishes smooth with a little heat and spice. Allspice, nutmeg and clove.
For me on similar level like Captain Morgan Spiced, but not so much flavoured. Good for mixed drinks like Cuba Libre.
This rum is the best if you love a good cuba libre. I could drink this rum all night long with some ice - coke and lemon
Awesome versatile rum for unbeatable price tag. You can step up your Mojitos and Cuba libres with it or use it to train yourself for drinking rums neat. Rich rum taste, oaky but still with distinctive fruity sweetness. It's like Havana tried to do Spiced rum, with less annoying spicy taste and completely without spicing process (which covers up actual rum flavours).
Unrefined Rum but it's cheap as chips. Probably the best Rum I've had for under £15 a bottle. Good flavour and burn, I think better than the Havana 7
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
A good mixer rum nit the best one from Havana that would be the 7 year old but decent enough
Nice to coctails. I dont like it so much to drink it straight.
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.
Un rom simplu, clasic. Nimic special. Nu e spirtos, aroma simplă de rom puțin învechit.
Neni spatna, chutove lepsi nez 7-mi leta. Vyrazne sladsi, ale v pomeru k cene ji hodmotim lepe.
Good rum for mixing with cola. Nice quality for a nice price
