Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This rum has character without resorting to a funkiness or sweetness that is usually there in a non-Cuban style Caribbean rum. It won't wow you. It won't make you want to pull out your cigar, blast some Son Montuno, or anything like that. It will provide you with a Cuban-Style rum that you can buy in the US to make any type of mixer you like, adding a spice and straightness of a lot of Cuban rums that is freaking hard to find in America at a decent price point. I recommend making a rum old-fashioned as the bitters plays very well with this rum. All this, at $20! I mean, come on, hard to beat that.
It's just boring. I know the brand has a great story behind it, but this is just a cheap knockoff. Only aroma I get is alcohol. That's it. The flavor is also just neutral, I am sure they added some sweetener, because i get nothing at all from oak or wood or anything.
All that said, this rum won't ruin your drink. It won't do much to help it, but if you are making a drink for someone that just wants to taste the mixer and get buzzed, this isn't a bad choice.
I really like the simplicity of this rum. It is my go to when I make any kind of mix drink or if I just want a basic simple rum sip. No it doesn’t have a complex flavor profile but it has a nice simple smoothness that I enjoy. It is awesome for making Cocito and Rumchata.
There is nothing remarkable about this. Solid mixer. But it is nostalgic to me, which makes it much more enjoyable than “better” rums. I can drink HC and club soda on the rocks with lime all day long. My beach rum.
This is Puerto Rican Havana Club, absolutely nothing to do with the original Havana Club Cubano, the only thing that is similar is the name and this particular one is awful, strong burning taste of alcohol, real light, just not good. Stay away from this!!!
