Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is - to my taste - a much better rum than the Havana Club 7yr, as it is sweeter and richer. Very good with an ice cube, not as refined as for example the 8yr El Dorado, but nonetheless a very good bargain!
This is not a bad rum but not a great rum. The dryness and sweetness is lovely so trumps Havana 7 even though it's the same molasses. It doesn't have enough depth of flavour for it be a higher rating but a very credible cupboard stocker.
molasses. dry rum.
just for mixing with coke. really similar to the havana club 7.
easy, light, with a touch of smoke in the back. maybe some pineapple as a note of fruit.
Last week I had a Havana Club 7yr on the rocks at a bar (there wasn't any better choice of rum). I thought ok, for that price it is really not bad. Now I got a bottle of Ron Varadero 7yr and it reminded me of the HC 7yr. Then I saw the comments here on rumratings.com and it made perfect sense to me that this must be the exact same product but with a different label. It is a nice cheap rum. Color is light, taste is harsh, aroma a bit flat, but still too nice to mix it with cola or something. If you see it in a store, buy one. You will not regret it.
Varadero 7 and Havana Club 7 are the exact same product! If you like HC 7, give this one a try and save some money... The ONLY difference is the packaging.Both names represent a great Cuban rum for the money.It has a slightly sweet,chocolaty wood taste that leaves you longing for more.
This used to be called Ron Caribbean Club many years ago so my actual rum is about 20 years old ! Not that it helped any.. Crisp , dry and with an alcohol bite , very Cuban in nature.
Not for sipping but makes an above average Cuba Libre.
Es un ron que no esta mal pero al que le queda mucho para llegar a un buen nivel.
I tried this in a Colombian cigar shop. I couldn't pass on the chance to have cuban rum. While I'm not sure if would drink this neat, I'm more than happy using this as a mixing rum or on the rocks. I had it on the rocks and it was just a bit warm. I think it's too much neat.
Sehr lecker Rum zum mixen und pur genießen. Wird auf alle fälle wieder gekauft. Top Preis Leistungsverhältnis.
This rum is very similar to Calvados. Really original rum, low alcohol emphasis, complex flavor.
I finish second bottle: exactly 8/10. I want to pour it again.
Encore un 7 ans qui fait des merveilles dans les cocktails ! Un brin trop rude pour l'apprécier seul. Excellent en Cuba libre.
Good but not overwhelming. Too harsh to enjoy neat but perfect in a Cuba Libre. Good price as well.
Smoot round sweet flavour. Nose: especialy sugar cane. Better than havana club 7yo.
I did not expect much of this rum ... and didn't find much. It's a harsh rum for a 7-year product. Also, it's almost identical to Havana Club 7yr old. Is it the same product but with a different label?
Better than the Havana 7 which got me about the rum train in the first place. Not stellar but very likeable indeed. Could do with being mellowed with ice, but is good straight up nonetheless.
Aroma: karamel, hout
Smaak: licht zoetig vanille. Karamel, tabak en eikenhout.
Nasmaak: ietwat zoet, eindigt droog.
Prima rum, denk Havana Club 7, voor deze prijs (
To be honest i taste absolutely no difference to the Havana club 7Yo. Even the bottle is almost identical. If you look fo a challange,try to taste them blindfolded and tell which is which. Anyway its a light,daily sipper but nothing special
Ich muß zugeben das ich mir von diesem Rum mehr erhofft hatte. Pur ist er mir ein wenig zu scharf und kräftig. Mit Cola hat er wieder ein ganz anderes Aroma. Ihm fehlt aber die Weichheit die ich bei Brugal z.B. so gerne mag.
Der Rum erfreut mich und meinen Gaumen. Es gibt doch für gutes Geld noch guten Stoff. Schöner milder Abgang. Gut on the rocks
Like the Havana Club rum I tried recently, we can't get this rum in the USA. Thus, when the opportunity arose, I selected this rum to sample even over more desirable rums I can easily get here.
Like the Havana Club 7 Year rum, this one offers the same general lightness, elegant color and slight smokiness seemingly favored on that island. Is this the way Fidel wants it to taste?
This is a wonderfully enjoyable sipping rum, but seems to open up positively when served on the rocks. You then sense the complexities in both aroma and taste. Not quite as smooth as the Havana Club to my memory, but still a fine rum.
Not quite as good as Havana Club 7 year old but worthy of drinking alone or with mixers / cola. Has hints of cinnamon and molasses with a smooth finish. Remarkably does not induce a hangover!!
