Havana Club Anejo 7 Year Old
I was recently offered the opportunity to participate in a Tweet Tasting with Havana Club Rum and being that I'm doing my best to try to increase my own drinks knowledge and the breadth of drinks reviews on this site i jumped at the chance.
The Tasting would be the Havana Club Añejo 7 Year Old and four bitters, or essences of cuba, to go with them, being Honey, Aromatic Leaf, Island Fruit and Coffee.
I've not had a great exposure to rum thus far but i am always willing to give new things a try and i'm glad i did as i've found another drink i can happily sip on.
The Havana Club Añejo 7 Year Old was produced to be a sipping drink and it's certainly that, full of citrus and caramel up front on the nose it goes deeper and more raisiny and spicy as you spend time with it, perfectly sippable on it's own.
If you want to try a very nice rum you could always do what i'm about to and pick up a bottle of this from Master of Malt.
Thanks again to Havana Club for having me on the tasting.
lime peel is one of the distinctive flavours I get here, caramel & quality street toffee pennies, lightly toasted white bread the longer this sits in the glass the more it becomes coffee grinds, chocolate covered raisins and hints of spice.
initially sweet, then coffee grinds and cigar leaf, caramel and then the lime again but more chocolate limes than lime peel, hints of Caribbean spices coming though also
sweet raisins and chocolate
