Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I heard this label was coming to The USA beginning in Florida, well it has made it to Nashville. This of course is the Puerto Rican version of Havana Club. As any rum aficionado knows the name is everything. I have enjoyed the Cuban version and this offering is not it. I have to say Havana Club 7 year is my personal plum line of dark rum. However it is a nice tasting rum, a bit sweet and slightly oaky but a thin finish. Great bottle although hard to read the gold on black lettering. Pretty good with Coke and strong enough to relax you but not much of a burn so it gets a good grade for what it is. While it’s not the real deal in my book, it’s the best Bacardi product on the market even though they pretty much hide the name. They do have product of Puerto Rico promently displayed. This Rum is Puerto Rican Strong !
I compare this to the 5 year plantation. Decent taste beneath the alcohol burn. easly better than most in this price range. I sipped about 1/4 of the bottle but used the rest for guests that mix drinks.
This rum is called Havana Club but it is not Cuban. It's Puerto Rican !!! They are stealing the name. It has no special taste nor smell. At best could be used in mixes.
Makes my brain feel nice. I don't know if it's actually good, but I like it
Nothing objectionable here, just a nice smooth mellow rum with no strong flavors. It may not be deep, rich or complex but it's good.
If you're breaking away from rum mixed with anything this is a good intro to rums that can stand on their own. Smooth with light vanilla notes.
I like this Rum. If you want to start drink rum straight, this is one to try first. Its only $20 a bottle, its got a nice color and good legs. Its tasty and not harsh. Try this one then move on to more expensive Rums.
I've seen this on the shelf at the grocery store liquor department. It was just under $20. Tastewise it doesn't have much - its not harsh. There are lots of better darks around.
Good caramel smell. Smooth start finishes kinda harsh. Not too bad peobably better as a mixer.
