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.
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!
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....
I got a bottle of this in Canada while on vacation, came home and tried it in a couple of mixed drinks and on the rocks. For being a 5-6yr, it's not bad.
Sharp and young rum. Maybe in some cocktails,but when sipping neat this is quite harsh tasting rum. If this up ti six years old, this tastes younger.
Je ne l aime pas en degustation deul car basique court en bouche .mais sur des jus il se marie bien et est moins agressif que certains rhums blancs.note 5 en degustation et 6.5 en mix.il y a mieux a ce prix rt type de produit comme le abuelo anejo (9.70 € sur grauonline).
If you like HC7 you'll get a bit more balanced rum for the same price or a bit less. It's not wonderful, but a (just a little bit) smoother than HC7 and not that intense flavours neither (but they are there still). Primary for coctails or as Cuba Libre for me. Not as smooth enough to be a sipping rum for me.
Hope this becomes available in the United States soon. Too bad it will have to be renamed due to copyright issues. However this is a very good rum with some sweetness to it and a nice flavor. A little harsh and quite the immediate burn. Awesome in mixed drinks, especially frozen ones with a little 151 floater on top. Also makes wonderful rum punches on the fly.
Un Rhum Sympathique à boire en cocktail (Rhum ananas pour ma part) avec un goût agréable et non sec qui change du Rhum blanc traditionnel
Bought this in Italy, because it was very cheap and want to try another new rum for me. Comparable with Oakheart or Spiced CM, but this one is from a lower level.
