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 🙂 🥃
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.
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.
Charred wood and on the nose, a hint of vinegar too? Sweet smoky wood continues on the flavor, nice burn, quite dry and nutty. Not my favorites, but ok.
I'm a fan of Havana Club's offerings and this one is quite good, but the smoke is quite subtle if you're a Laphroaig fan, which I am. The Islay cask married nicely with the Cuban rum, but I'd like more smoke.
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
This is not really better than Havana Club 7 but it has an entirely different taste profile. While it can indeed be described as "smoky"....l find it is a little thin with a more alcohol aftertaste than Havana Cub 7.....but still decent on the rocks.
