A true representation of fine cuban rum. Recommend neat or as an old fashioned.

Насколько я понял, правильно пить его следующим образом: во-первых, дать подышать минут 10-15, во вторых - добавить немного прохладной воды, чтобы градус опустился до 38-40%, тогда вкус и аромат раскрываются по-полной и ром становится по-настоящему питким. В целом, он скорее терпкий, чем сладкий. Аромат яркий и насыщенный: фрукты - слива и вишня - перемежаются с кожей и табаком. Сложный аромат, требующий времени, чтобы распознать все его оттенки. Вкус смягчается и раскрывается после добавления воды. Нотки табака и дерева, немного цитрусовых, жжёного сахара и шоколада на заднем плане. Послевкусие интересное - дуб, ваниль и слабеющие фруктовые оттенки - остаётся после того, как исчезает спиртовое жжение (а оно, увы, присутствует даже в разбавленном варианте), со временем сменяется солёным шоколадом.

Если не добавлять воду, спиртяга перекрывает все остальные компоненты.

Великолепный цвет - благородное красное дерево - к сожалению, теряется при добавлении воды, но на эту жертву приходится идти.

Это не ром на каждый день, и не ром для весёлых посиделок в компании с друзьями, это ром для уединённого отдыха с соблюдением всех необходимых для его питья процедур.
В целом ром очень хороший, но цена его завышена.

As far as I understand, the right way to drink this rum is as follows: first, let it breathe for 10-15 minutes, second, add a little water to reduce alcohol percentage to 38-40%, it will make taste and aroma reveal themselves and make this rum significally smoother. Generally speaking, it's more harsh than sweet. Aroma is rich and strong: plum and cherry are present as well as tobacco and leather. Aroma is complicated and it takes time to fully sense it. Taste becomes mild and exposes itself after adding some water. Wood and tobacco notes, some citrus, burnt sugar and chocolate in the background. Aftertaste is iteresting: oak, vanilla and diminishing fruit overtones stay after the disappearing of spirit harshness (unfortunately, it's still present even after adding water) and are smoothly replaced by saulty chocolate.

Without water spirit harshness burns everything out.

Colour is beautiful - noble mahogany, but sadly it's lost after adding water. You have to make this sacrifice tho.

It's not an everyday rum and it's not a party rum, this rum is for a quiet private rest in complience with all it's drinking rules.
A nice rum afterall, but overpriced.

A little more burn than I expected. less sugar added than other HC rums.

Quite okay from all their artillery, price could be lower.

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.
