Havana Club Anejo Especial rum

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.

Not a full bodied or special rum but basic and easily mixed. I'm thinking of using this as a Base for spice infusion for more flavour.

I drink this Rum first time in Havana by Havana club factory. The taste over there was
Much better besides when I buy a bottle en drink it at home. This Rum is tasty, but for the price you can get better Rum.

It has a nice sweet bitterness with a tobacco finish. It has the caramel colour without the taste. Good with Sprite.

A bit smoother than the more smokey Havana 7.
All good drinks with coke zero and lime with ice. I'll buy this again next time I need a mixer.

Je le consomme uniquement avec du coca et pour le prix (j'arrive à l'avoir pour 10-12 euros en général) c'est un bon choix pour les apéritifs

Degelijke rum die me wel kan bekoren.
Standaard, niet speciaal maar scoort een voldoende.

Een perfecte, lekkere rum voor de 'instapper'. Smakelijk, zoet met weinig complexe (na)smaken.

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.

Posted over 3 years ago by Michael Shumaker from United States with 23 ratings

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.

Posted almost 4 years ago by Willem Dierickx from Belgium with 7 ratings

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

Posted almost 4 years ago by Václav from Czech Republic with 74 ratings

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
