I use this one for my Cuba libre. 4 cl Havana Club 1 cl lime juice 10 cl Coca Cola
3 September 2022
A not bad Ron, rather balanced and easy to drink, but without any other interest.a very caramel nose with vanilla and a kind of peach. A short but not unpleasant finish with apricot.

good for Cuba Libre. But not outstanding. over all the its very similar to the Havana 3 yo. a little spicier anf with some caramel so slightly better for mixing with coke.

This rum from Havana has a better price-performance ratio, because it is often available at the same price as the Havana Club 3. For mixing quite good.

Nose of vanilla, dried fruit, wood and liquorice Tastes of dried fruit raisins treacle and liquorice and woody aftertaste with a alcoholic kick and the end

The nose does not offer very much. You can smell some hints of fruity flavor (orange peel) with various spices but it is all covered in alcoholic odour. Taste however, is a different story. Sweetness is very well balanced and you can taste the fruity aromas, mostly orange and orange peel, that are very well balanced with vanilla, caramel and spices. The finish is pleasant while at some point you can feel the copper on your tongue as an aftertaste. Overall pretty pleasant rum for the sipping as well as a component of your favorite drinks such as cuba libre. I had it on several occasions and I still quite like it as it is cheap, accessible and tasty.

All my Tastings and Scores are purely based on “Rums under £50”. I rarely look at Rums over £50 for my YouTube.

The nose is dominated by spice and wood with some charred notes and a touch of vanilla in the background. On the palate the wood is less present but there's more sweet notes of caramel and it's quite rounded. In the finish orange peel comes almost out of nowhere. Overall it is pretty middle of the road but it is available in most shops for a cheap price.

Mein Evergreen, passt gut für einen schönen Longdrink oder eben in Cocktails aber eben auch pur trinkbar wenn man gerade keine schöne Bar in der Nähe hat oder unterwegs ist. Kann man meiner Meinung nach nix mit falsch machen ;)

Good one for Cuba Libre! Neat it’s terrible in my opinion but that is normal when I prefer much more mature and aged rums neat in my glass!!

Sehr süß und mild Kann man auch pur genießen, wenn man auf Süß-Rums steht

Kein wirklicher Unterschied zum 3 jährigen. Es gibt preislich deutlich bessere Alternativen.

einer der besten für Cuba libre und Mojito in Sachen Preis Leistung wenn's um Cuba geht. mein Lieblings Havana auch wenn ich sonst kein Fan der Marke bin
29 January 2023
Pour le prix, je sais l'apprécier pour ce qu'il est. Est vraiment idéal pour le fameux CUBA LIBRE 👌

Typisch kubanische Nase. Viel Holz, bisschen lackig, recht frisch und Frucht wie Pfirsich. Pur dann leider viel zu kantig. Stark-warm alkoholisch, unrund. Vanille, Karamell, kräftiges Holz und fruchtig-ölige Zitrusnoten kommen zwar durch, gehen aber leider unter. Klasse allerdings für'n Cuba Libre bzw. alle kräftigeren Longdrinks.

Ok per cocktail

Not a great sipper though it doesn't claim to be, wonderful as a mixing rum. I found it to be very smooth and added an ideal ruminess to drinks.

Like the rum cubay, tempting in the nose but disappointing in the mouth...
