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.
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.
leave bacardi, havana, morgan at same starting range, dont be a victim of advertisment, for 20$ bottle get legendario or diplomatico anejo instead.
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.
It`s a 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.
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.
Appearance: Clear/Light with aging
Nose: Fresh, light vanilla/cherry.
Palate: Balanced, yet refined and fruity
Serving: Perfect for mixer for the Cuban Mojito
