Flawed with a glimmer of hope
I love a good mojito! The best mojitos I've ever had are always in Cuba. I tried to recreate when I got home... and it wan't until I used Havana Club White that I got it right. It has a distinct taste... which on it's own or even with Coke isn't the best. But when it's time to make the perfect mojito... Havana Club White is what you need to use! End of story. To summarize.... if you make a mojito... use this rum... otherwise, pass.
Quite dry rum, can smell some sugar cane. Better choice than a Bacardi.
I prefer the Yellow label rather than the white one, the yellow has better body and so tasty on mojitos
I find people hold each rum to the same standard while reviewing them and I don't agree with that mentality. This rum is a mixer not a sipper and is a totally different animal.
As a white rum it is one of my favourite mixers as its inexpensive and has no offensive odours or flavours. Great for Cuba libre but, great in tiki drinks. Mixes well with fruit juices and soda. I find captain and a few other whites have a swail that cannot be masked. This rum does not.
Rum punch or similar drinks aren't the same without a white rum like this one.
I don't see the need for this rum. The 3-Anos is similarly priced and is so much better that this one has basically left the market. It's comparable to the white version of Bacardi, which is awful. I'd still prefer this one over that one, due to the distinct lack of bitterness.
A classic case of commercial rum. Can be bought in every supermarket, is cheap and is mass produced. Good for your mojito or cuba libre, but no win. It gets the job done, but it won't surprise you, and it won't be something special. Boring, mediocre, not good.
I personly don't like white rums because for me they almost taste just like alcohol, really boring... whites are only good to make cocktails but I just like to drink straight I don't like cocktails... but in Cuba, you will be happy if someone is trying to make your cocktail using that rum... ;)
