Tasty, but not quite great

Buono ma per correzzione non da bere liscio un gusto non bene definibile

I will start with positive points which are: Havan Club Anejo Especial is a high quality all Around Run as a premium Alcoholic destilate it delivers Neat Sipping experience suitable to tag it as a Sipper and not necessarily a mixer. i would find it a waste to use it as a mixer, there are many lower tier and less pricey Rums i would destinate for this purpose. The Nose is quite Pleasant, Sweets such as Toffee and caramel. on the tongue it is still shouting youthfulness together with teenager manifestos about how the good old pirate days were,. however without actually being old enough to remember the days... it is not hiding it's high quality production. but will agree with you that it planned to grow older before your meeting which shortened it's life expectancy.
It's definitely a Sipper and not a mixer. would be a sin to mix it, and not enjoy it's youthful biting energy. and pleasant medium finish which raises hints of fruit and raisins even though we know aren't present there. the effect of not completed maturation. i haven't drank the more aged versions of Havana Club to compare with, but i am pretty sure that the 7 year old would be rounder and more complete exactly in those angles. over all it's a very nice cuban rum drinking experience, if it wasn't for the sometimes unstable pricing in my country, i would say that it's a good deal for the 25-30$ i paid for a 750ml bottle. however even slightly higher pricing puts in a worse position to equivalently priced rums such a Diplomatic Mantuano, which is, with all due respect to Havana Club a much more complete and fulfilling drinking experience. my Rating is 6/10 as i feel i have to save the 7 rating for it's slightly more mature and aged stated older brother.

A very basic rum to have with coke and lime. I wouldn't have it on its own.

This is a nice rum but it does taste a little on the cheaper side.

I drank a bottle of this stuff and wandered around Havana one night several years ago. It was one of the best nights of my life. Smooth and great with Coke or on its own.

The entire HC line maintains a similar flavor,and it's a good one - loved the world over. Sweeter,woody/tobacco flavor rum. Great mixer that doubles as a cheap sipper. Cuban HC brands are my favorite,when they are available.

This rum is hard on the throat when you try it straight. Got a cheap whiskey feel yo it. Ice helps somewhat. I like the nose though. Goes well with Coke or a Ginget Beer.

This rum is meant for mixing and not to be sipped. Good for a rum and cola.

I have purchased it for 12 euros. I can smell a stronger alcohol aroma. Didn't enjoy drinking it neat because of that burn, but it was great for the cuba libre. After all, that's what even the producer suggests. For the price, it is a good mixer and I probably would buy it again.
