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.
Alkohol: 40 %
Aroma: Hutně kožené, rumově pralinkové aroma s ostře vystupujícím alkoholem. Štiplavá, zemitá, snad až mírně zatuchlá vůně. (82 b)
Chuť: Poměrně hrubá, štiplavá, mírně nasládlá, nijak extra plná chuť. (82 b)
Shrnutí: Měl jsem miniaturu koupenou z Diosu a jsem rád, že jsem neutrácel za celou lahev, která je běžně k dostání v supermarketech. Není to nic uhlazeného, i přes určitou výraznost mě moc nezaujal, přijde mi roztěkaný, disharmonický. Poměr výkon/cena mi přijde velmi slabý. Je spousta lepších rumů v této cenové kategorii, levněji seženete dokonce Pampero Anniversario, které je kvalitou úplně jinde.
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
A tasty rum. I wish is was easier to come by.
It's a very good "classic" rum, i drink it with cola and lemon
Pretty good with a mixer, wasn't a huge fan of it straight
Great for cuba libre dry rum
Strong spicy, bitterish taste, lacks body. Recomended iside a Mojito
A nice "beginners rum" Slightly sweet with some molasses and a slight spiciness.
Sweet, very good entry level rum.
I love 7 year with coke. Makes the best cuba libre. A dry, smokiness with notes of molasses. Staple back bar product
Good for mojito's (real mojito's) very nice taste
With this rum. I gave it 8 stars because I often use it as a cocktail mixer in recipes that call for lighter rums, ie Daquiri's. It really blends well and with lime creates a great drink. Not a sipper for me but a versatile cocktail rum.
The rum which showed me that aging was something good for the spirit and opened the door to many others. Survives mixing but can also be sipped over ice
Shorter finish with only a hint of spice. Some rubber and barky hints. Not overly complex.
