It looks like a Havana Club, smells like a Havana Club, but there's something extra on the nose... Smoke. Not quite a peaty smoke, but definitely smoky. I like it! 😃
On the tongue... It's a smoky Havana Club. It's crazy to narrow it down like that, but that's exactly what it seems like. The smoke isn't overpowering, which is nice. It's a subtle addition.
Little lingering smoke aftertaste...
This is interesting. It's drinkable neat, but I think it needs a mix.
I need to find the right mix for it 🙂 🥃
Hints of scotch (yummy). Great colour. No burn, not over sweet or caramel infused like some other rums. Great sipping by itself or with a splash of ginger beer.
Definitely recommend this to have on your shelf even if for conversation purposes.
Will not be disappointed at the price.
Dark color, smoky for sure, just perfect to smoke a Cohiba or Montecristo and strong. This one was brought from Cuba this week. Havana Club do not disappoint.
Rum is reasonably priced with a smokey flavor. More of a mixer with an unusual taste.
This rum spent time ageing in Islay whisky casks giving it a light smokey nose and flavour. It has a sweetness, toasted oak, spice, vanilla and chocolate notes with a mild burn. It has a spicey medium finish that was better with a single cube. Makes a good rum and Coke but not my favourite. $43 Can at LCBO
Definitely not the most complex rum on the planet, but it was a pleasantly surprising sipping experience. Hints of smoke and wood - not at all like I expected/assumed from aging in Islay whisky casks (of course this is only partial aging, so nicely done to not overdo these sometimes powerful flavor components!). Overall nicely balanced, subtle spice flavors, prominent vanilla, sweet, and smooth with very little burn. A pleasant, simple nose, with only a slightly more complex taste. The small bits add up to a very nice rum.
This was a bit of a novelty buy - smokey flavours are great everywhere else, so why not try rum that way? It was well balanced, my fear was that the smokiness would be too much, but not the case.
At least two friends who tried it immediately after their first sip suggested it was just like a bourbon, so if that is your thing, you are in safe hands.
I do find the flavour a little synthetic when sipping it strait. Put it in a mixer and that is no longer a problem, and this rum shows its true power. Without overpowering it, the robust flavour pushes it through what ever it goes in a glass with. This may become my go-to for mixed drinks.
I found this rum to be smoky as advertised but also a bit leathery and maybe a bit peaty. A bit different than the other rums I have tried recently.
Pretty damn good for the price. Its not overly smokey like the Zacapa Negro but still manages to be smooth with oak notes and no loss of sweetness. Also you cant beat the price. I recommend it to all those who live in countries who allow imports of cuban goods as opposed to those that boycott them because they nationalized over 60yrs ago leaving the bacardi rum company complaining to this day.
