Hands down one of the best and most reliable mixing rums on the market. For me, a classic simple rum taste that although one dimensional satisfies the thirst. Currently drinking it in winter, can't wait for summer when Cuban rum excels! Always a bottle in the cabinet...

I would rate this rum as basic rum. If you want to drink cheap rum, maybe with drinks, maybe in pure form, it's pretty good for its price range. You can feel the drugs in the nature of what rum offers. A bit of a barrel, a bit of sweetness, it's slightly spicy. You have to bear in mind that this is only the basic version of rum, which does not give any special sensations. If you haven't had a chance to try what good rum tastes like, after tasting it, you still won't know it. In my opinion, a good quality rum costs at least about 4 times as much as this one.

It is estimated that the rum, made from sugar cane molasses, matures in Cuba's tropical climate in former bourbon barrels made from American white oak, for around six years. For the finish, the Maestro Roneros fill the rum into young, burned-out oak barrels. The rum is bottled with an alcohol content of 40 percent and caramel as a coloring. Conceived as a competitor product to Spiced Rums, the Havana Club Anejo Especial can be classified as a classic rum, as it does not use any flavoring.

It is a very affordable classic at 15€ and best with a coke. However it doesnt perform well if you sip it.

I found it very pleasant and mild. Not a sipper, great for mixing with cola. I appreciate subtle notes in the taste and properly balanced sweetnes

Tento rum lze označit za takový etalon kvality. Svého času podpultové zboží z Tuzexu, nyní rumový průměr, který nikoho neurazí, ale ani nepřekvapí nějakými chuťovými orgiemi.
Vůně po masovém karamelu a vanilce zahalená tóny dubového sudu. V chuti taktéž dominuje karamel, vanilka a dub.
Lehké alkoholové zakončení v hrdle. Příjemně nasládlý. Vodnatější konzistence.
Jediné co mi chybí je větší komplexnost vůní a chutí a olejovitější charakter.

Nice flavour ,not complex, overpowering or overly sweet but great in diet coke with ice and a slice of lime and smooth enough to drink on ths rocks neat which at this price is unusual.

The lower rating this rum has must be from people expecting a sipping rum and being disappointed. This is a Gold Standard Rum for Mixing! Fantastic in Mojitos when you want some extra depth and punch if the 3yr Havana Club doesn't cut it. Amazing with Coke and Lime. Nothing comes close for taste at it's pricepoint. If you're after something similar though, try Appleton Estate signature blend (Jamaica) or Bati Dark Rum (Fiji) both are good but just missing that something special that this Anejo Especial has. Highly Recommended!

This rum is aged 5 years. There are notes of bourbon, oak and walnut. More interesting than CavanaClub3, more sweetness and depth. Short finish.
