Excerpt: Definitely Cuban-ish, but a lot more complex than I was expecting. Just a tad too pricey for me as this style isn’t usually my cup of tea, but for a Cuban rum lover this can easily hit the spot.
Excerpt: The Havana Club Selección de Maestros really is a fine rum. It is a little spicier than most well aged rums in the market, but the spiciness (for me) works very well within the context of the overall flavour profile. The spirit is an excellent sipper, and if you wish to explore the cocktail rum just a little bit, you will find the spiciness of this Cuban spirit works wonders in that realm as well. Not quite up to the standard of the old Havana Club Barrel Proof, but great nonetheless.
Excerpt: The rum is ideal for someone who enjoys a less sweet possibly more oaked profile. Having said that I am fond of the Demerara and Bajan style yet I am finding this Cuban expression to be very enjoyable.
