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

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.

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

Very nice rum, 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.

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.
