Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Enjoyed a bottle of Pacto Navio with my buddies while vacationing in Germany. Very nice sturdy bottle and old fashioned label design. Reddish color. Strong smell from the French Sauternes Casks. Very nice flavor profile. Mild burn at the end.
Moc se mě líbí láhev, rum krásně voní, bohužel chuť je průměrná, nezajímavá. Vzhledem k ceně celkově zklamání.
I had this rum straight and thought it was good but not great. A little harsh, like most Cuba’s rums. Them I paired it with a Cuban cigar (Partagas) and man did that change the taste. This run was definitely made with Cuban cigars in mind.
In taste i feel vanilla, but not sweet vanilla. Also you can feel cask smell in your nose, not sweet, but smooth.
Not a typical Cuban style rum, a little sweeter, but not cloying. A nice change, particularly good for a night cap.
Aroma of dates figs moist tobacco. Spicy alcohol and easy down the throat.
Certainly one of the better Havana Club rums, packaged nicely. Not a very complex taste but enjoyable. But there easily are much better rums in this price category.
nice color and interesting aftertaste (little burn). I m not excited but i m not also dissapointed. Maybe i was expected more from Havana. As another person wrote this is better that 7 anos but far away from Maestros. BUT...i dont have any negative so i will give it another try
Nice Ron, taste is sweeter but sharp taste can be felt.
Picked up at Germany Duty Free shop. Light somewhat sweet aroma, light on the tongue, quite smooth, slight sweetness, easy finish with little burn. Quite pleasant.
A commercial rum, maybe good for cocktails but bad quality...
Bought this in duty free, I liked the look and the story.
Chunky embossed bottle, fancy label.
Aged in ex-Sauternes casks, I was hoping for something like the Foursquare Zinfandel edition.
In the glass there is very little aroma.
On the tongue it is very sweet (4/5).
The predominant flavours are - surprisingly - Oak and smoke. A real lack of fruit was disappointing, considering the efforts that had gone into casking it (allegedly shipped across the ocean in the wine casks).
In summary a reasonable attempt of a mainstream producer to make a special edition, but the exact process is not declared, too much sugar has been added and the flavours have not really come through.
Overall the sweetness kills everything else in this rum. The aftertaste is pretty good but Im struggling with taking another sip.
nič specialnega, v primerjavi z rumi v podobnem cenovnem rangu...
Nice, I must reccomend to everyone who likes to enjoy sunny day with a glass of good rum in their hands.
The impression is brighter than Havana Club 7 year.
"Seleccion de Maestros" is better at the almost same price.
However, this is not bad rum. Still I do not want to buy this rum one more time.
Není špatný, ale této cenové kategorii se dají najít lepší
not a bad ron but nothing great for the price
light vanilla taste at the end
not too sweet
Un rhum avec de l'arôme mais il manque de corps.le vieillissement en fût de sauterne ne se fait pas assez sentir.
Pour moi, absolument aucun intérêt. Au nez, seul l'alcool m'est venu, et en bouche, il m'a procuré autant de plaisir que n'importe Havana Club pour cocktail... Je n'y ai pas trouvé de profondeur, ni de goût véritablement marqué.
Tastes good, pure or with coke, a little sweet but very drinkable!
Son packaging rappelle tout de suite Diplo et tant d'autres nouveau venus qui misent tout sur l'emballage et qui contiennent moult additif sensé charmer le palais.
Pas celui-là. Il possède sa propore personnalité. Peu sucré, sur un caramel discret, notes poivrés, il procure un réel plaisir comme peu de rhums en provenance de Cuba.
cheap sweet taste, too alcoholic smell, light smell of smoke
