Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
A big step up from the 7yr, very smooth despite the extra strength.
I know it's hard to find in the United States and the price in europe can be high. I do recommend to get it in Cuba where it can cost 40 dollars. The only Havana Club with 45% alcohol and one of the smoothest rum ever. Well balanced, perfect for special moments.
Probably my favorite of the Cuban rums as it has a decent bite to it with the standard Spansih/Cuban style flavoring of light caramel.
This is what we call Havana Rum. Really the best price for the best product. That is absolutely the best rum for that price, or even it is better then half of much more expensive rum. If you are looking for good melasa rum just try this one. Tase great, really sweet tabac and fresh fruity smell. Tase absolutely great, it builds 3 main directions: sweetness, tabaco/oak, and fruits. Finish is really long and fruity. You can't fell great power of 45% vol. in smell and taste. This power holds all taste very well. It is really good With one big ice block, but first taste it without nothing. I do highly recommend this ron de habana!
This is the first rum from Havana Club i have tried and i found it to be a pretty decent rum but not all that memorable. It does have a nice flavour but also has a bit of bite so it's not the smoothest rum about. Definitely worth trying though. Great presentation.
Smooth, Quality Rum. but It tastes exactly what people think rum tastes like. nothing is too special about it.
Muy buena presentacion y mejor ron en esta seleccion de maestros de Havana. Relacion calidad y precio Buena. Lo recomiendo
Purchased two bottles of this rum during a recent trip to Cuba. I had been waitnng for a while to sample this rum and the wait was well worth it. This rum is simply delicious. Not the driest rum I’ve had but definitely not sweet. This is the best Cuban rum I’ve had so far. The woody taste is different from any other rum I’ve had and each sip lingers for a long time. I wouldn’t rate this a “10” but it certainly deserves a strong “9”.
Un sabor distinto al que estoy acostumbrado pero muy bueno, gran retrogusto, para degustar refrescado y experimentando y descubriendo los sabores de esta creación.
Compared to the other Havanna ages this one ist for me the only one you can drink in it's own. IT has a very smooth taste, rich flavour and ist Not top sweet.
Drunk this rum just before i went into a dance event were they were only selling captain morgan. It was Nice to have one of these
I read some good rating on WF few years ago. I don't know is the blend has been changed since or maybe sweetened but I found it tasteless and uninteresting. Light rums are sometimes subtle and complex, this one was just "empty".
This havana has a little of maestro for real. It is not great but it ain't bad either. I would say, try it yourself to make an opinion.
Really liked this one. It is dry and a little sharp. Smoke it with a big fat cuban and you'll feel like you are in Havana.
Stings from the start at your tongue. Even after a couple of minutes. Not what I had ik mind for a bottle in this price range.
Nic spicy nut on the nose. Palate is little bit of coca and wood. Really long finish.
Great for everything. Neat, rocks, mixer. Aroma is molasses. Taste is Carmel and molasses with some heat. While the taste is smooth, the Carmel, molasses, oak are not shy. So it makes a great rum and coke, dark and stormy, you name it. It's like the 7 just smoother, yet the Cuban profile shines none the less. Yummy, great buy. Make sure to buy the Cuban one.
Can't ask for more in a rum. The fact that it is priced decent is irrelevant, just a bonus.
Year in and out, this is the one that comes home with me from Cuba. Don't mix this.
i taste it on mine holidays this year in Cuba.For this price there a a lot of better rums.After more and more tasting rums mine decision is that Havana Club is a very expensive brand.
It is not bad, but not great either. Sherrywined, a bit more character due to higher %. Blended & filtered too much, looses character.
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
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.
