Havana Club Añejo Reserva Rum
Havana Club // Cuba
Matching a flavor profile rather than a specific age, the Anejo Reserva is a solid offering toward the lower end of Havana Club's line. While certainly sippable, this rum really shines in classic cocktails, with tonic water, or in a Cuba Libre. Note: This is not currently available in the U.S.
Aged RumRum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".
"The nose is overtly fruity, showing bitter orange and lemon custard above rum-soaked raisins and dates. The rum enters with a noticeable smoothness that borders on watery, but there is enough pepper and cinnamon to keep things interesting. Subsequent sips provide more spice along with ample vanilla and a bit of toffee, coffee, and a bit of tobacco. There is an implied sweetness, but the finish is extremely dry with a woody note that manages to coat the palate after several sips. Balanced and approachable, Havana Club Añejo Reserva is an excellent value that could easily find a home in most bars."
