Tasty, but not quite great
I am a Havana Club fan, but this is just bad from all points of view, starting from the design of the bottle, artificial color, and strong industrial alcohol taste. I had a sip and spit it out. Can't drink it, I wouldn't even use it as a mixer. I paid 13 euros for the bottle. I wouldn't drink this again even if it was free. For a few more euros there's several good options, like the Brugal Extra Viejo, which is in a another league compared to the Ritual.
Brought back from Cuba by family, I had high hopes. It wasn’t quite up to them so I may have overreacted. Truth is it drank well and held its own. Not amazing though and would still go 3 or 7 yr HC
Ritual is an amazing rum for the price you pay, it is not sold in stores in the USA, for about 7 dollars you really could not ask for anything better, at only 37.5% it is super smooth ans easy to drink.
If HC made an HC2, this would be it. You can taste the HC profile,but this one has a very strong alcohol burn and just tastes cheap. Also,the extremely artificial orange color is another turnoff. Surprised if they don't discontinue it...
This shares surely a lot of carachteristiques in common with a rum-based spirit, surely it has a low abv. percentage (37%) and some sugar added, but at this price point is a good deal, quite fresh and fancy, juvenile one to party in Cuba!
