Really great every day rum, the nose is not so amazing after 3 years to be honest, nor are any other's that I have had under 10 years. The taste on its own is again the best in its bracket, much better than Bacardi. Where it really sparkles is in any type of cocktail, mojitos taste like they were made around this and not the other way around. This has me really dying to try the older bottlings they have!

It took 41 years to find out the difference, and believe me when you try Havana Club, you too will be impressed. Havana Club is superior rum for those who demand the best and are knowledgable enough to know the difference. There are lots of good rums out there, but this one is above what you'd expect for the price. When I see bacardi at the store I just laugh and keep walking to the havana club. Can't believe it took so long to discover how good this stuff is.

Smooth as silk!

I normally avoid white rums like the plague - too many bad memories of drinking awful cheap stuff out on the Toon. However, this is total quality and I tried it recently by accident. Sweet and smooth with none of the bitter and cloying aftertaste of Bacardi.

I was fortunate to have at least heard about this brand. Even the cheapest Cuban rum, in most cases, are better than the most expensive rums made in the USA or even the Caribbean. I live in the United States of America and any kind of Cuban rum is illegal to buy, sell, trade, or even to bring into the country. At least for now. Most Americans have never tasted any Cuban rum. You can drink a toast with friends and family and talk about what Americans have never had the opportunity to taste.

Agreed. If you're still buying Bacardi for your mojitos . . . .why?! Couple of pounds more for a much, MUCH better drink

Great for a Mojito but not very good on it`s own unless you like an "oily taste".

Bought a bottle of this today for mojitos. Walked in my front door, dropped the bag it was in and the bottle smashed on the wood floor in the hall. Damn.

My favorite for Mojito. But i cant buy it here so i need to go to Cuba to get a new bottle. But ill appreciate all the mojito this bottle will make. If your mojito never taste as good as the one you drank in Cuba,its because you dont use the 3 yo HC. Try it and you ll see!

Best rum ever for cocktails. It's smooth, sweet, and has "Cuba" written in its flavoor. You can't find a better (light and little aged) rum for mojitos or daiquiris.

Very good stuff-subtle,sophisticated and smooth but also full of flavour.

Beats every white rum I've tried hands down. It's much more subtle, with an almost vanilla undertone...I strongly suggest trying this one in a mojito!
