Havana Club Añejo Blanco
Havana Club // Puerto Rico
This rum is aged for 1 year in oak before being blended and filtered. it is then aged a further 2 months in oak for mellowing. This Puerto Rican distilled rum made by Bacardí is based on a recipe from the Arechabala family who created it in Cuba in 1934. The family produced it up until 1960 when they fled Cuba after Fidel Castro nationalized the distilleries there. It became available in select Florida markets in June 2016 and will roll out through the rest of the country the same year.
Silver RumAKA Blanco, Light, White. Rum that is usually aged (but not always) and carbon-filtered to remove any color. No specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for aging for most countries with a few exceptions.
"Nosing the glass reveals notes of vanilla and brown sugar with light fruit notes lingering around the edges. On the palate the rum enters with the vanilla and brown sugar from the aroma. This is soon followed by quick notes of pineapple, dried papaya, raisins, and a pop of brine. Notes of minerals and char come in at the end creating a long savory finish."
