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.
Its a good rum for the cubas libres, but I could be a better rum.
One of the best for everyday cocktails. Still enjoy it
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.
Nope, this need serious improvement.
But still hopefull.
Too bitter and less taste for my kind.
Nice dark rum for cocktails or even as a ”shot” Price difference to 7 years old is so small that I would rather got for the 7.
Not for sipping, but makes a very addition to a punch or mixed with ginger ale
This is a decent mixer and perfect for Coke and a slice of lime over ice.
Like its 3 years brother this one this one shines as a mixing rum. If you sip it you will notice complex tastes. Its not too spicy.
Sugar: 0 to 5 gpl. Strong oak taste and heat. Not smooth at all. Works okay as a mixer, but definitely not a sipping rum. There are better Cuban Rums available.
A medium amber colour and light on the nose with a touch of alcohol. Smooth enough to be sipped with a balanced dry taste. It makes a great rum and coke, or any other mixed drink. Only $29 at LCBO makes it a great value.
On par with HC 7yo. Just let it stay for few minutes and aroma will be opened.
В аромате немного жжёного сахара, в основном сладость иного
рода - фруктово-ванильная. Во вкусе же фрукты и ваниль доминируют, иногда проступает лёгкое кофейное послевкусие. Спиртяга чувствуется слабо, но есть. Приятная штука, но недостаточно жжёного сахара и вообще нет дерева.
Sweet aroma with a touch of caramel and fruity-vanilla main part. Fruits and vanilla dominate the taste as well and sometimes you can sense a slightly coffeish aftertaste. Smooth, but some spirit harshness still exist. A nice one but lacks caramel and wood.
One of my favourite low end Cuban rums. Great for mixing.
I like Diplomatico and El Dorado for the bite. This was too weak for me and had a weird finish.
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.
A good rum, and a step up or two from Captain Morgan.
This rum is nice as a companion to a cerveza or as a mixer. Better than the similar offering in Canada from Appleton, Captain Morgan and Bacardi.
HANAVA CLUB ANEJO RESERVA
Zapach: kawa rozpuszczalna, palony karmel, melasa, wyraźna beczka, nuty kakao, alkohol dość dobrze ukryty. Smak: Wyraźna beczka oraz nuty palonego karmelu, zioła, wanilia, rodzynki, suszone figi, w tle pałęta się coś na kształt syropu na kaszel dla dzieci. Smak jest lekko słodki oraz bywa miejscami ciężkawy. Alkohol tak jak w zapachu dobrze ukryty.
Od mojej pierwszej styczności z tym rumem, a dokładniej na na Kubie w 2016 do dziś minęło około 3 lata. W tym czasie nie udało mi się na jego natrafić w żadnym polskim sklepie, za granicą również aż do momentu małego urlopu w Grecji. Podobno jest dostępny w czechach gdzie dość często bywam ale niestety nie udało mi się go trafić. Z mojej strony wysoka ocena ze względu na stosunek jakości do ceny - tutaj nie czujemy młodości oraz nut alkoholowych, nie jest to też podkolorowany Anejo Especial od tego samego producenta który charakteryzuje się niską dojrzałością. Mocne 79/100.
just mix it with coca cola a slice of lemon and lets party.
Very good rum, too bad we can’t buy it in the USA, but can bring it back from other countries now thankfully. Just a good sipping rum, but certainly not worth all the hype!
This used to be my standard "utilitarian" rum. There was always a bottle on hand in my house. Then, about a year ago, it disappeared from my local stores for about 4 months. When it finally returned I was very excited to see my old faithful friend back in the cabinet. Sadly, something had gone horribly wrong in those short months and, for the first time ever, I returned a bottle of rum. Maybe someday I'll try again.
Always with cola or in a cocktail. Nose was more alcohol. Too bitter. Missing much to be a good rum
The bottle I was served at the Tropicana Cabernet was the best I've ever had in the price range. The bottle I bought at a store my tour guide promised me was a government store (which she later admitted paid her for bringing in tourists) was the worst I had ever paid that much for.
This entry is not really for drinking neat, but to add to cocktails and rum drinks. The smooth flavor is starting to get there, but the flavors are just floating around and the complexity is somewhat lacking causing the rum to not have a voice or a niche.
Heat from the oak and the alcohol, combined with the fact that this rum doesn’t really have a distinction or character that truly describes it.
Good to have in your bar as it is cheap. If you can find it and buy it, what the heck...get it, especially if your in the States. We can’t get Cuban Rums here only if we get it in the Caribbean, other countries, Cuba, on cruise ships, planes, or have friend buy you bottles when the go someplace that sells Cuban rums or Cigars.
