Very strong alcohol smell. Almost like jet fuel. Very little flavor and what little there is is fairly bitter leading to a rather harsh burn. I have tried the real Cuban Havana Club rum and this stuff doesn't hold a candle to the authentic Cuban stuff. The bottle reads that it's "Puerto Rican Rum". Puerto Rico should disown this swill.

This stuff tastes like vodka, which is fine if you want vodka. If you're going to be mixing it I suppose it will do, but there is not enough flavor for this to stand alone. Disguise it without hesitation.

When a rum is barely distinguishable from industrial solvent cleaner, and tastes like a poorly crafted vodka, does it even deserve to be called a rum? I was incredibly disappointed with this. It lacks character, flavor, or any redeeming qualities. It is neither a rum nor a vodka, being far to crappy to fit either bill. Unless your sole point in drinking this is to get drunk, in which case there are much cheaper and cleaner products out there for those living the life of a chronic public inebriate, steer clear.

80 proof. Sip test, no ice
Resembles rum, but very green with ethanol finish. It is an unaged white rum, fairly smooth as they have printed on the bottle, but it is pricey and is piggybacking on the original Cuban Havana Club brand (I have not yet tested).
Empty glass lingering nose indicates fireplace ash. Sipping is an effort. Not worth the $26 per 750 cost, even as a mixer.

The aroma is sweet but that's it. The taste is smooth with very light burn. The finish is not short with flavor of molasses. In my opinion, it can be used for sipping but it'll be boring (almost like drinking vodka). Due to the lack of big flavors, it's more suitable for mixing. I prefer the Bacardi version ( Bacardi silver superior) because it's a bit more flavorful and delivers a stronger punch.

Very clean and clear when poured neat. There are some light floral notes on the nose, but they are overpowered by the alcohol. In the mouth, there is a bit of rum flavor, but an astringent-ness that resemble moonshine. It's palatable, but not enjoyable on it's own. Decent in a Cuba Libre or Mojito.

Itโ€™s actually made in Puerto Rico. Also not worth your time.

This is fuel grade booze. Period. I wouldn't even spike a punch with it.

I love a good mojito! The best mojitos I've ever had are always in Cuba. I tried to recreate when I got home... and it wan't until I used Havana Club White that I got it right. It has a distinct taste... which on it's own or even with Coke isn't the best. But when it's time to make the perfect mojito... Havana Club White is what you need to use! End of story. To summarize.... if you make a mojito... use this rum... otherwise, pass.

This is produced by Bacardi and not affiliated with Havana Club Cuban Rum. It was the subject of a prolonged lawsuit that settled in 2012. As of December 2014 it was available only in the US states of Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts and Michigan.

I've never tasted Cuban Havana Club so I tried this with no expectation of what it should taste like. It's smooth and aromatic, great on ice and makes a superb rum and tonic. I'll be buying more of this the next time I'm in Michigan.
