A big step up from the 7yr, very smooth despite the extra strength.

Purchased in Mexico for around $35 this seems like a great deal. I could breathe in the aroma all night. Slightly floral, and a little woody, with the promise of a classic flavor. Sure enough, no hint of added sweetness. Really smooth with just enough homage to it.s contents

Edit: just had another sample, but now from a freshly opened bottle. It‘s still a 6, but now, the nose detects some hints of oak and maybe even caramel, while the palate detects intense spices and smoke.
Bit I still miss volume, body and aftertaste.

Notes from first sample:
Nose: a bit fruity, some hints of lime maybe
Palate: Certainly way better than the 3-Year, but still not very tasty: missed body, volume and aftertaste, but the bottle was already open for years. A bit harsh too.
Not the best choice to sip neat, but worked well in a Mojito.

I tried this with my friends who are not familiar with rum. They are whiskey-burbon funs and found that very tasty. I liked the color. The nose was complicated and the body a little bit dry. The aftertaste was strong. Very good served with one big ice cube. Dont mix it

Good on nose, but simple flavor and alcohol in aftertaste.
For me, is very similar to Havana Club 7....
This rum is totally overrated.

For a sip, I do not recommend.

kenne den rum aus kuba.. in dieser preisklasse ist es ein rum der mann pur geniesst.. für mich ist er zu wenig süss starke holznote, würzig.. nicht mein favorit gibt es wesentlich bessere rums in dieser preisklasse... im vergleich mit anderen rums aus kuba schmeckt mir santiago de cuba wesentlich besser.

Cherry oaky vanilla sweet nose. Gentle fistt sip and sharp vanilla smokey caramel aggressive strong body and aftertaste. Warm at end as well as a bit abvish

Havana Club Selection de Maestros is een botteling die afwijkt van de reguliere variant. In de neus onder andere ahornsiroop, gember en eiken. Op de tong smaakvol met veel karakter en kruidige invloeden. Chocolade sinaasappel, espresso, hout en karamel. De afdronk is middelang en bevat rook en fruit.
Voor mij wat te scherp.

This is a decent rum on its own. Most of the real Cubans are pretty dry (I prefer the Venezuelan stuff on the average, which I find a bit more balanced). If you don't want a rum to leave sugar on your teeth and still has a smokey, medium bodied feel with a touch of sweet, this is nice. For the price, though, I have started to avoid it. Better stuff for basically the same is available.

Much appreciated quality rum that does not hit the higher price ranges.

The smoothest Havana club I've had to date, but it seems as though it sacrifices deeper flavours which accent the cheaper versions. None of the citrus tones or powerful sweet notes found in standard issue Havana.
