Havana Club Añejo Reserva Rum is aged five to six years. This rum was not originally intended for public consumption but reserved for Don Navarro, the head master rum-maker for Havana Club.
This rum is one of eight produced by Havana Club in Santa Cruz del Norte, Cuba.
Tasty, but not quite great
Every time I drink this I am amazed at how uniquely different it tastes from everything else. I love it and try to make it last as long as possible.... if anyone is going to Cuba can you bring me back a bottle?
I enjoyed the taste and smoothness of this rum. We purchased this rum over 7 years ago in Acabo Bahamas. We decided to consume it during my birth celebration this year. Its was a great selection.
Was in Cuba and was drinking this in a bar because they didnt have the havana 7.
I didnt mind because this was really good. Not so sweet as the 7, but just as nice with cola, ice and lime =)
I had a few experiences with rums until my parents came back from Cuba with this bottle. I prefer tot drink it room teperature, non mixed, the flavor then realy opens after a few seconds, the first seconds are realy soft but rather less tasteless, then afterwards the bouquette opens up tot the variety of Wood fire and a little fruit. I love that affect
Nose: Pear/tobacco/wooden notes, some age
Palate: Strong and complex, yet smooth.
How to serve: Rocks, or Cuba Libre.
This is a great rum that unfortunately you can't buy in the states. Excellent on the rocks, very smooth with a wonderful strong taste. I'll be singing the blues when my one bottle is gone!
The best mixer of all the Havana range. Had an xMas party and we had this, the 7, especial, ritual and barrel proof. The Reserva is the one the we all went back to and was finished off in no time. Crazy cheap in Cuba as well at about £4 a bottle. Not a great sipper which is why it probably scores low on here but there's nothing better than this with a splash of cola.
Worst thing about this rum is it's been discontinued. Only bought as a spur of the moment buy & both glad I did & didn't. As soon as I tried it, it became my favourite rum along with the Appleton's 12, but at a more affordable price. Got that classic rum taste but it's smooth as silk. It's even so good it got my vodka & liqueur drinking sister into rums other than Malibu.
