Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
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.
My sample is old and appears to actually be from Cuba. However, the taste was good but not great, I think my expectations were a bit high for this rum.
This rum is good. Not a high end sipping rum but more of a mixing rum for simple cocktails(i.e. Dark&Stormy, Rum&Coke). Gives more flavor than a Captain Morgan or Bacardi.
This rum stand between the Anejo Especial and the 7 Years, but in Italy it's priced as the older brother.
Could be a good option for cocktails that require a golden spanish style rum, but for this price you can get something better.
I don't like it on the rocks.
Neat reveals its identity, a medium tier mixing room.
If you don't have money problems and you a cuban style rum that still come from Cuba, this is for you premium rum & coke.
I will use this in a cocktail. I think it would be good in a mojito.
much lighter then I expected it the glass but one can't tell the color from a dark bottle .rum is nice as a mixer you can share with friends but they are better out there if you want to truly enjoy a fine glass
En af mine gode rom til cocktail og især mojito :)
heavy. For the same reason i praised Brugal Añejo. No originality.
I don't want to mix this rum with coke, because it's 7 years. So i put some ice in it. It becomse softer and nicer to drink.
I learn to drink rum neat on this one. It's actually good on the rock (almost as 7 Aňos), and decent neat. It gives extra kick to your drinks. It's like Especial one, but bit better on all sides, and more expensive. The step up from Especial makes it first really sippable rum in Havana Club product line. Make it cheaper and it will kill the Especial in same manner as happened with Blanco and 3 Aňos. Make it more expensive and it will be killed by 7 Aňos (but unlike Blanco and theoretically Expecial it will be missed). with oak-nutmeg-rum fragrancy and nice mild sweet taste, bit citrusy, pineapple and fresh with little heat on end.
It is fine mixed, but straight up this just isn't very smooth or complex. I wouldn't buy this again unless it was at least $10 less. Only fit for mixing. Better options for the price.
better than captain morgans. Relatively smooth for such a young rum - caramel, little oak and bits of vanilla.
tastes like a combination of malteco 10 and captain morgan dark.
can be sipped and it is good in cuba libre
Comparable in quality with the anejo special and 7-year.
À venir prochainement..............................
Another wonderful rum to host a garden party with. Bring on the tropical drinks or a nice rum and cola. Rich tones add flavour to any drink needing rum.
Fin rom, som jeg ikke vil have dårlig samvittighed over at blande med en cola.
excellent with coke and lime. Maybe in some cocktails,but when sipping neat this is quite harsh tasting rum.
The colour is very nice.
Decent rum but slightly sharp because it hasn't had time to settle. I second all the reviews that say this is best served in cola with a slice of lime.
Good rugged rum, for my taste! It is very good in cocktails and other mixed drinks. Also cooking with this rum enhances the flavor of the food!
Perfekt geeignet für Cuba Libre, mit Cola gemischt schmeckt mir der Rum sehr gut, nicht geeignet zum pur trinken.
Ačkoliv konzumace proběhla v pozdním stádiu večera, vím že to nebylo vůbec špatné. Cenově přijatelný rum.
Tento rum sem mel ve chvili, kdy sem byl na mol.Tudiz nemohu hodnotit:D
If you have read my previous posts you will see I am not a fan of Havana... however this is a slight exception as it is excellent with coke and lime. Its also great as a cocktail mixer....
