Havana Club 3-Year rum is produced from molasses and aged for 3 years in white oak barrels before filtering and bottling.
Havana Club rum is produced in Cuba, where the company was founded in 1878 by José Arechabala. The company was nationalized in 1959 after the Cuban Revolution and now jointly owned by Pernod Ricard and the Cuban government.
You'll NEVER use Bacardi again after trying this rum. Smooth and balanced with just the right amount of kick. It's content to be the rum in a cocktail without taking over the other flavors, or being vodka-like in neutrality. Straight up it isn't very impressive, but if that's how you drink rum, then you should be buying far more expensive products anyway.
And I love it. Tried it straight and it was good. In a Mojito, Daiquiri and Cuba Libre it is fantastic. Lime and mint make this rum pop....it is very smooth and fresh...I like it! Thank you, Cuba.
This was served to me instead of dark rum... Nearly spat it out as was very foul and left a horrible taste in the mouth
Nice rum to mix. Straight up is also possible but then I would reccommend that you save your money and buy a better one. This is the bottle that let you forget Bacardi in a instance.
Designed exclusively for Mojitos... I have it in the top of my coctails preferred rums, one of the best clear rums i tried... My rate is not bigger cause here the comparation is between all rums, but i really like it so much.
This bad boy is beating it's younger sibling out of market. And for good cause. the taste is floverly-sweet and it makes great Mojito, Daiquiri, Piňacolada and Cuba libre. And other coctails as well. and it is old enough to have it's own attitude to present, so drinking neat "young" rums is finally enjoyable (but mostly on the rocks). Essential for cocktail lovers.
Not the worst drink I've had, but it's what I'd call a rum flavoured ethanol. Got a gasoline aftertaste to it. Wouldn't see the point of buying this when at costs the same as the far better Especial. You give this to the freeloaders so they stop drinking your piss & start buying their own.
This rum is suited to any white rum based cocktail. I swear by Havana club and you can't beat a classic daiquiri with this one!
Perfect product for cocktails. Clean and round taste, little vanilla and citrus.
Early 2000 Havana Club was introduced in Belgium and became quickly my favourite rum to mix with cola.
To be honest I've put it aside the last years to discover other rums, but it's always nice to come back to this solid reference as a mixing rum!
It is actually quite drinkable neat - by no means great, but not bad either. Clearly it's mainly meant as a mixer, particularly with coke, but it does have some decent flavour and considering the price, it's a bit of a bargain.
The extra aging has done nothing to help this rum. It's still a mess.
For the price is good for Mojito and other mixed drinks.
Il sera la base d'excellents mojitos mais il ne faut pas en attendre plus.
Young rum that already has character. Great mixer for Coke or mojitos
Like it with coke. A lot better than the Havana club blanco. I like the havana club especial better (about the same price). 6/10
This one is a classic mixing rum. It is the mojito rum.
Its a little bit spicy and very neutral. No rum for sipping.
Nice mixer rum. Great for the original mojito. Strong as sipper.
Good cuban white rum for mixing. Not strong alcohol taste for a young rum.
I'm not much of a cocktail / rum with mixer drinker so probably not the best person to review this, as this is the only way I could possible imagine this to be drinkable.
A major characteristic of Cuban rums is that fiery alcoholic burn upfront and after, but there are a few pleasant tasting notes: A little bit of that saccharine demerara sugar, esters briefly evoking dried tropical fruits and a vanilla aftertaste. This is not a first choice sipper, but fine as a shooter, and apropos of cocktails, the daiquiri and mojito will surely improve in flavor toward their intended form.
I prefer to mix it with Cola, ice, slice of lime and a few drops of vanilla extract.
I like the taste and effect. No bad hangover from this one. It's readily available everywhere in Germany. Quite regularly for 10 Euros a bottle.
This rum ultimately meets all of its expectations and has more of a distinct taste than many rums in its class. It is more fruity and functional than many other whites out there. It serves as a well mixer and provides the Cuban taste called for in many great drinks. Cost and function are strengths.
Actually Quite useable in mixing. After some drinking it develops a sour burn in throat, so be careful. Nothing remarkable, but a completely ok rum for serving your guests. To be avoided straight.
