Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Ive noticed how few comments describe the flavours in this rum , its very difficult to find them.. maybe wood , leather and that's about it ? Lovely gold/straw colour , strong ethanol smell upon opening . An ice cube makes it creamier. A really well made not sweetened enjoyable rum. For a longer drink this makes an outstanding (expensive) cuba libre... 7.5 overall.
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.
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.
More a 7.5, A step up from the 7 year, which itself is a fine Rum
Hard to find in USA, got mine in Italy duty free.
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.
