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.
The point with all the Havana's I tried is that I love them in a Rum Coke, but they don't make me feel happy sipping them. This one is also good for the mix and nothing more than that.
Nose: Pear/tobacco/wooden notes, some age
Palate: Strong and complex, yet smooth.
How to serve: Rocks, or Cuba Libre.
A good pretty good quality/price rum
First tasted Havana Club in the Caymans and then later in Aruba. I like the strength of this rum. It tastes like a powerful Cuban rum with hints of caramel. I like it on the rocks, but it is great with cola as well.
Wouldn't be disappointed if I got one of these with coke.
Perfect with cola
I like the caramel flavor of this one.
While being a rum seen everywhere, I'm always suprised by the lack of faulkts this rum have. While not perfect, this rum has few flaw, for its price.
Honest rum with nice level of sweetness.
Not available to buy in the Uk, but if you get the chance it's worth it. Sits between especial and 7 year. Kind of a mix of both those flavours, dry, sweet smooth. Not too much of one or the other.
These rums aren't going to get rave reviews with people banging on about peaches and deep Brazilian rainforest nuts but what they are are good reliable no surprises quality products. To be used in mixed drinks in different forms. They do their job admirably and are honest about it.
