Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Havana Club Añejo Especial is a blend of rums aged for up to five years produced from the fermented molasses of sugar cane harvested in Cuba. The molasses is combined with yeast and water, distilled using column stills, and aged in white oak barrels.
Havana Club was founded in 1878 by Jose Arechabala and later nationalized after the Cuban Revolution in 1959.
In the world are better rums by half prized... never drink it again
If you really wanna mix coke and dark rum.. try this one. But it doesn't need to be mixed, great taste...
A bit harsh straight up, but i love it when it's mixed. My go to drink when the barr has no real good rum to offer. Especially with fanta it's amazing. The orange really enhances the rum
Not a favorite on ice or straight but the perfect rum for Cuba Libre.
I enjoyed countless bottles of this one in my life. Very fair price for what you get!
Agreed, I've had better rums. But that doesn't necessarily make it a bad one. Nice to sip on a weeknight. I'll have to try the Fanta suggestion once. I would never thought of that myself...
Acidic, fruity smell. Flavour quite balanced but light, a bit dull. Not much to complain about but not the best either.
Un ron decente para mezclar y muy buena opción para el cuba libre.
This rum was a bit too harsh for me straight up and it has a pretty strong smell too. It works well for making a good Cuba Libre though.
I payed €17 for this bottle and it confirms that you get what you pay for. Want a nice rum sipping experience? To paraphrase mr. Kenobi: "this is not the rum you're looking for".
Nothing special, but taste is good for this budget. Especially when you wait a few minutes the rum will blend with oxygen and the taste gets softer (less alcohol taste).
Another rum from HC that's easy to drink.
I don't get the same alcohol smell that most people seem to mention with this rum. Maybe a little vanilla.
It's got a really good colour, good legs and I don't find it too harsh when over ice.
Would make a great mixer, though I've not tried that yet.
All in all a "every day rum", that should suit most tastes.
Picked it up today, on offer in Tesco, £15.
Good taste, and but aftertaste is medium hard, dry, first opinion was more negative after Brugal Anejo, but next day I ve discovered this rum from another side, overall good
A bit more tasty than the 3yr. Would reccomend for mixing not spping
Strong alcohol smell but has a beautiful deep color. The first sip gives a strong deep sugar taste with a lot of aroma in your mouth.
The aftertaste is a bit strong but the sweetness prevails quickly after it.
Overall a nice rum that is a bit to sweet for me.
First Havana which is possible to drink without non-alcoholic drink. But with this price is still ok to make Cuba-Libre from it.
a Special taste, very good for mixing with coke. good Ron
Along with HC 3 anos, HC especial is widespead cuban rum here. It is quite harsh but not so much, quite sweet, but not so much, and quite tasty (of couse - ) but not so much! It is not sipping rum obviously but it could be sometimes (especially when you short of money). It is quality cheap straight cuban rum and this is quite enough for me!
Another version of the classic HC. A bit more aged and less dry than the 3 year old but not yet the sweetness of a a 7 year old.
Never really a fan of havana club..and now even less..to me it doesnt even taste like rum..wont buy it again
First I felt only strong flavor of alcohol, but after that the taste transforms showing vanilla, honey and sweet wine (port?), very nice
In orde voor de prijs die je hiervoor betaald. Ideaal voor een Rum-Cola
Κάποιοι γράφουν ότι είναι πολύ καλό με cola και βάζουν 7 (?????) Με τί cola? με βίκος cola, με green cola με coca cola με pepsi cola twist με loux cola με νέκταρ cola etc (?????) τες πα ..... αυτό το ρούμi πίνεται όταν δεν υπάρχει τίποτα καλλίτερο ..... απλά πίνεται και σώζει τη βραδιά από το να ξενερώσεις με τίποτα bacardi σκούρα και απροσδιόριστα !!!!!! 5-
Just mix it with coke, use it for mojito's or other cocktails. Nothing more, nothing less.
