Havana Club Añejo Especial is a blend of rums aged for up to five years produced from the fermented molasses of sugar cane harvested in Cuba. The molasses is combined with yeast and water, distilled using column stills, and aged in white oak barrels.
Havana Club was founded in 1878 by Jose Arechabala and later nationalized after the Cuban Revolution in 1959.
Again a rum that I often use in cocktails, some classic and some maniacal creations. If you want a versatile rum then these lower cost Havana's are really 'go to' rums. They are also great learning tools on how subtle differences in flavour profile make a good deal of difference to a cocktail.
Actually it's to my suprise a smooth rum what I haven't expected, however this is still a mixer and not a sipper to me.
I live in Asia, where rum is hard to find, so I drank this one neat while looking around for something better. It's probably best as mixer (it makes a decent Cuba Libre), but I think there are better ones. Only buy this if the price is good or availability of other rums is poor.
This is where you should start with Havana - go no cheaper or lower because it just isn't worth it.
Saying that this is a decent mixing rum for when you a long drink does nicely
Color : Bright amber
Flavour : Ripe fruits, cacao, chocolat notes, light herbal touch, banana
Palate : Gentle, medium length, well balanced
I like to use it in cocktail, pairing it with the 3yrs old in tiki drinks.
