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.
Had occasion to enjoy several new (to me) rums during a recent trip to Cuba (some I liked while others just were not my thing). The majority of these rums are meant to be consumed with coke or some other concoction but since I drink my rums “neat” my reviews will be rated might accordingly.
The Havana Club Anejo Reserva rum is by no means an aged rum (said to be between 3-5 years) therefore not considered to be a sipping rum however I found this somewhat similar to the HC7 but slightly a bit sweeter. Overall this rum was better than I had anticipated.
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
This is my first rum. I like it, can't compare yet...
Downgraded my initial rating a little bit after comparing with my second rum...
The smoothest and most aromatic of Havana Clubs Anejos. Although it could already be enjoyed on the rocks I prefer it in long drinks.
I had my first Havana Club during my first ever visit to Cuba on my honeymoon, so this is more of a sentimental choice for me. It mixes well with a Coke at the end of the day. Nothing spectacular but not disappointing either.
More aged but same bad taste, sometime I can drink it if not more rums on the place, its very dry and have no deep taste
This rum has a light golden/amber colour with a bit of a rubbing alcohol smell (in the bottle).
It tastes sweet and floral/fruity, but way too harsh for me to sip straight.
It makes a really good Cuba Libre (R&C) - It's light yet has enough flavour to give it some taste.
Un rum semplice senza pretese! Da usare per rendere più gustosa qualche bevanda calda o per fare qualche cocktail!
Dette er en klar kandidat til rom og cola. best hvis ikke for kald.
I chose this one before he's brother Havana 7. It is perfect to mix with coke or other drinks. Not good enough to drink pure.
Rhum à Cocktail, parfait pour le Cuba Libre dans la ligné dans Bacardi Spiced mais en plus rond et moins sucré
This seems to sit between the 7 year and the Especial in taste profile and I slightly prefer it to both as it seems to have the qualities of each and is still quite upfront with the treacly molasses which I love with Havana Club. Mixed this is excellent . I find the flavour is enhanced after having say an Appletons Signature or Mount Gay Eclipse before, seems to sharpen up the palete
Ron que combina bien para hacer un mojito o una Cuba libre.
It is not reaally a good sipper but it is ok in a blend
Tento rum mi příliš nechutná. Jiné Kubánské rumy mi přijdou mnohem lepší než tento.
Easily drinkable with cola or for various drinks. Dont recommend for sipping.
En super god rom til mojito el. lign, men ikke til at drikke ren.
Excellent for mixing with a diet pepsi and a lime wedge poured over a heaping glass of ice.
Sehr guter Mix-Rum.
Liebe meinen Cuba-Libre mit diesem Rum !
Very good mix rum.
Love my Cuba-Libre with this rum!
Maybe I'm exaggerating about it and I might as well be underestimating this one at the same time...
I can recall a period (in the not so far past) when this was the more descent choice among rums (to mix with cola) available on the selves of most Greek bars! I still consider it a great mixer.
Descent choice when Bacardi is the only alternative!
.... Εντάξει , αφού δεν πίνεται σκέτο , τότε είναι καλό για κοκτέιλ ...... τι να πω ? προτιμώ την 7αρα !!!!
Nice blended Rum. I love this one with Coke and Lemon perfect combination.
It is ok, I bought this one due to the fact that the 7 year rum is one of my favorite rums.
I was very disappointed, though it is great for mixing.
