Small superstar

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.

The bottle looks like a premium version of the standard Havana Club bottle, it has a quite thick glass botton and a stopper made of granulated cork with a plastic cap. However it feels not such premium as it seems to be intended for.
The rum has a brown/copper colour, a fruity and slightly sharp smell, combined with oak. Quite a clear, full flavour. Vanilla, oak and caramel, together with some harsh leathery flavours and ripe fruits. The sweetness is only subtle and not as present as in other aged rums, thus the alcohol is more present on the palate (which is 45% per sip). Finally, the taste somehow resembles that of aged cognacs.

This one is a ok rum but nothing more. Havana Club is one of the biggest producers of rum and also one of the most overated. They should keep their business for making longdrinks

But it is still not close to a rum like QRM, A.H. Riise Navy etc.

Smooth and slender, but less so than I expected. It's only mildly different to the 7-year Anejo Especial version, although the packaging and bottle would suggest otherwise.

All-in-all, a very good rum, not the Cuba Libre variety.

είναι ενα Havana Club που θυμίζει ένα καλό ρούμι.έχει πολύ καλό συνδιασμό αρωμάτων και γέυσεων απλά σου τινάζει λίγο τα ρουθούνια το αλκόλ

Smoothness. Experts made this a masterpiece. Selected old rums blended and layered in selected oak casks. Tastefull, rich sugars. Little bit flat nose.
Unfortenatly not a very exciting rum

First time with a Cuban. Very Smooth. Rocks and a lime with Tortolla in the background

A nice brown gold color with a fine fragrance.
When sipped, i tasted the sweetness of roasted Bananas with a hint of Tobacco. The taste of smoke in the afterburn was very special to.
Heavily complex to sort all those aromas.

Déception pour cette jolie bouteille issue de la Havane. Lorsque 5 "maestros" travaillent ensemble pour assembler les vieux rhums les plus fins, on est en droit d’attendre un produit d’un autre niveau, plus fin , plus subtil.
A la dégustation on ressent bien (trop ?) les 45%. Epicée, la bouche manque de rondeur, et la longue finale râpe légèrement. C’est dommage.
Ce rhum industriel, sec et puissant, a le caractère des agricoles, mais il reste un cran en dessous.
