Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
A blend aged in a barrel that was used for up to 80 years. Only 2500 bottles were produced. All numbered and signed.
Very mild, spicy with a fruity touch. Great rum that sets a high mark for the following years.
I already sent my contact in Havana to get me the 2017 as well.
This rum reminds me of being invited to the back of a Cuban distillery and being offered a sip from the oldest barrel. This is not a smooth rum. From the first experience of the deep aroma to the last lingering taste, this is a premier sipping rum that insists on your full attention. Not to be missed!
I had a fantastic opportunity to taste 4 different Havana Clubs in Cuba. I have always been a fan of the 7 years old one.
Here is a summary of all the four.
1. Seleccion de Maestros
No too sweet, nice round taste, maybe little alcohol taste. Rum has 45% of alcohol so a small drop of water helps. Lot of fruits and some spice.
2. Anejo 15
More balanced and deeper in flavour than Seleccio de Maestros. Again, this might have something to do with Seleccios higher alcohol level. Flavours like apple, honey and spices.
3. Tributo 2016
A fantastic product, close to perfection. Really looking for the 2017 edition. Blend of rare casks some as old as 80 years H huge and long taste
A collaboration between Havana Club and Chiba Cigars. You could actually say that nose and flavour has some tobacco and smoke in it. Maybe more sweet than other Havana Club products. For me the 2nd best so far.
Still looking for the Maximo, but price of about 1.500€ lets me still wait for it
