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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Perfect product for cocktails. Clean and round taste, little vanilla and citrus.
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
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!
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.
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.
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.
Viele haben Ihren ersten Rum-Cola wahrscheinlich mit diesem 3-jährigen Havanna Club getrunken, so auch bei mir.
Für mich ist er zwar nicht mehr erste Wahl, aber dennoch ein solider Rum für einen Partyabend.
Nichts Tolles, aber besser als Nichts.
Alles darunter schmeckt mir allerdings überhaupt nicht mehr.
Deshalb bekommt er von mir 4 Punkte und ist der "Basisrum" für alle weiteren Bewertungen.
unspezifisch, sprittig und nicht sehr lecker.
Geschmack pur (Note 2):
Eigentlich so wie sein Geruch. Nicht süß. Eigentlich fast ungenießbar.
Geschmack in Cola (Note 5):
Hier ist er sanfter und nicht mehr so sprittig - eben ein typischen Havanna Club-Rum-Geschmack ohne besonderer Note.
Lekker om te mixen, maar ook als basis voor een heerlijke monitor!
The benchmark for clear rum. Great base for standard cocktails.
I don't even want to know how many bottles I already killed...
(I only rate rum I actually tasted an I have at least one bottle of in my shelf).
Not a bad cocktail rum by all means. Probably especially meant for stuff like Daiquiri and similar. Personally I'd go with a blanco Brugal...but sure, if this is what I had in my cabinet...
Bouteille non ouverte. Reçue comme cadeau pour un événement très particulier !
I love this rum neat with 2-3 stainless ice cubes, it has a nice wood taste and a dry finish, not much ethanol burn for a young rum. At 24$ CAD in Quebec, it's a great deal.
I'll echo what everyone else is saying, it's used this mainly for Mojitos, but also done Cuba Libres, Rum & Coke, Rum & Sprite. It's fairly neutral in taste and works with most rum mixers since it doesn't overpower the other flavors.
