Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Havana Club Blanco is the youngest of the Havana Club rums and is standardly used in cocktails. Like its counterparts, it is made in Cuba and aged in oak casks.
Bacardi stands at slightly higher than this. A little bit flat and sharp of taste. Only in the mix on a very hot day!
Great mixer for drinks with a stronger flavour as the rum flavoring is stronger. Also good for cooking and deserts.
leave bacardi, havana, morgan at same starting range, dont be a victim of advertisment, for 20$ bottle get legendario or diplomatico anejo instead.
Obyčajný, až priam nie chutný biely rum, ktorý sa ale môže dať do niektorých miešaných nápojov.
I don't like this one so much.
Straight up - ?? - 2/10
With cola - better, but... - 6/10
Average - 4/10
Nose: Quite harsh. This is not much of a factor though because you're not going to be sipping this.
Feel: Very oily.
Taste: A little bitter then getting sweeter towards the end. Little aftertaste.
Presentation: Very recognizable bottle. Nothing special.
Price: 38 CAD for a 1.14L bottle. Too much for what it is.
I normally pass this one over and go for a cleaner tasting DR rum like a Brugal or the 3-year Havana Club, which I had yet to review but is a much more interesting rum especially in Mojito.
When I need a lot of white rum and the taste is going to be masked by something sweet anyway I can use something cheaper like Captain Morgan White.
So this rum is really in the middle in terms of quality and as such it isn't good enough at anything to get used much.
This is purely for cocktails. Better have Anejo 3.
This rum's flavor contains fruit, citrus, flower notes and vanilla. Superb mixer.
A slightly better alternative to Bacardi white rum but still lacks and significant features as do most white rums.
It`s a budget mixing rum and has some flavs to it but it too can make a good daiquiri. It´s one of those old shelf rums...it`s always there even if not always used.
As White Rums go nicely balanced
good to mix with Cola
I like the clean taste of this rum, but it needs to be mix for full affect. I drank this with various fruit juices in Aruba. It is also a high priced alternative to Bacardi Superior in a Cuba Libre or a mojito.
There is really something lacking in this one...seems to have been a rushed recipe. Not alot going for it with the exception of a good fire starter.
Havana Club is a basic and honest white rum. Not much to say, it's good for cocktails only.
Not a fan. Some bars in Europe only have this and I will opt for some other type of drink.
Appearance: Clear/Light with aging
Nose: Fresh, light vanilla/cherry.
Palate: Balanced, yet refined and fruity
Serving: Perfect for mixer for the Cuban Mojito
Basic white from the Havana guys. Fine as a replacement on the bar for Bacardi, chuck it on ice with coke or ginger beer!
Extremely spicy strong taste with a hint of ''body''.
I would recomend it with Coke or in a Cuba Libre
