Havana Club 3-Year rum is produced from molasses and aged for 3 years in white oak barrels before filtering and bottling.
Havana Club rum is produced in Cuba, where the company was founded in 1878 by José Arechabala. The company was nationalized in 1959 after the Cuban Revolution and now jointly owned by Pernod Ricard and the Cuban government.
The bourbon touch is definitely there, making it a smooth woody rum, easy to drink and great value for money.
Tried this side by side with the Mount Gay XO and this was a clear winner with the charred casks adding more complexity and flavor. cinnamon and vanilla spice, very unique. Great value.
I paid 30 Euro for a litre of well made, well balanced Barbados rum. It will not blow you off your socks, but it does outperform many bottlings of more expensive competition. (Zacapa, Diplomatico, I'm looking at you.)
A light and fruity sweet aroma. Light flavor, not very thick, with a burn on the back. Not bad, but have had better.
Light and smooth. Sugary sweetness up front. Burn in the back, a little unexpected. Barrel flavor comes through without being overwhelming. Slightly complex but nothing phenomenal.
Bought a bottle of this. Took it round to friends. Didn't get to sampling much of it, but enough to be satisfied I tried it, but happy not to buy it again.
Wasn't much of an upgrade on the Eclipse, still young and undeveloped, although easy to drink. The char adding something but not enough to elevate it's overall character. Too muted in flavour for me, and for the money, I'd say RL Seale or El Dorado 12 have more depth and interest.
