Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Havana Club 7-Year Rum is distilled from fermented molasses and aged in charred white oak barrels for seven years.
Havana Club rum is still made in Cuba - where the company was founded by José Arechabala in 1878 and then nationalized in 1959 after the Cuban Revolution. Havana Club is now jointly owned by Pernod Ricard and the Cuban government.
Havana Club 7 year makes a base for a quality Cuba Libre, but it is not created for neat sipping since the flavor profile is a mixed bag and the afterburn is very strong.
Very smooth, easy to drink.
This has been one of my "always on the shelf" rums for years. It`s quite light but still does have enough flavor and it`s to me a mixing rum rather than sipping even though it sips well. I just like it in mixed drinks better.
No nose. Medium colour.
Light caramel and lemon. It really is a simple rum. Very smooth and easy to drink.
I drink it on the rocks but most of my guests take it with cola.
This is differently not a rum for me. It lacks sweetness. The smell reminds me more of tequila than rum. I can drink it straight but it doesn't really give me any pleasure and I'm not sure that I would say yes if offered a glass.
Fik den for mange år siden før jeg vidste hvad ROM er.
It's ok, not special.
For many years, the Havana Club 7 Years has been my standardgood quality rum. Perfect taken straight and in cocktails. Affordable and recommended!
Toffee depths, my favourite everyday rum.
a good rum, even if a litel bit to much commercial
I was fortunate to get this rum as a gift from a traveling friend so, as it's inaccessible in the USA, it's got the allure of forbidden fruit. What's Cuba hiding down there? Other reviewers have noticed the smokey, leathery nose and mouth feel of this rum. I would add to that some spice which helps with the balance, but overall I find this flavor does not quite match the aroma. This rum, for me, lacks the rich, viscous feel I associate with the high end rums. So I enjoyably drink it on the rocks whenever I'm looking for a moody spirit.
Very nice and tasty rum. Good with Cuban cigars.
Mike at ultimate rum guide is spot on!
I wish I could get this in the U.S., but when I head to Canada, it's my "go-to" at the bar. Just a wedge of lime, thanks. This was the rum that awakened my interest in rum beyond the usual mixers.
Color : Dark brown
Flavour : Coffe, cinnamon, caramel with some wood & tobacco notes
Palate : Powerfull, crisp, well balanced
A good treat, a great rum...
I found a bottle in Aruba and it is a fine sipper. I really like the strength of the Cuban rums. You can tell you are drinking a rum that means business.
I'm not a rum snob and I always mix Rum with coke and lots of ice.
With this in mind this is a nice clean rum without the backlash of the earlier havanas but with only a little more of the cost.
go for this instead of the blanco, 3 or 5 definitely but if you can't stretch to the 7 year old the anejo is a decent second choice.
This has the same favour combos as the rest of the Havana range - just a bit deeper and a bit smoother.
This is a very accessible rum. While not available in the US (at this time), it's a great rum for most people to start with. It isn't too expensive, and it's very smooth. Nothing harsh at all, save for a tiny bit of afterburn. It's the kind of rum you should buy if you only plan on stocking one bottle.
A very nice rum. First tried this rum in Cuba when on holiday. Works great in a rum and coke or with ginger ale. If you are looking for a great mixing rum that is different to the usual try this you won't be disappointed.
Havana club 7 year is an enjoyable and easy to drink rum. If you're new to rum, or have a limited budget, this a great aged rum with which to start your journey. Very good rum to mix with cola, as it is on the sweeter side. It has a nice aromatic caramel scent, and an almost brown sugar finish.
A good rum for " company is coming over rum"
Comes actually nice in cuba libre and other cocktails but for sipping is this rum to me still too spicy.
nice in a long drink glass withe cola
