Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Appearance: Havana Club Máximo Extra Añejo displays an impressive deep dark amber glow, testimony to  its long natural ageing.

    Nose: Havana Club Máximo Extra Añejo reveals an outstandingly rich, intense, persistent yet delicate aroma. It impresses with its unparalleled complexity, sign of graceful maturity; balanced notes of oak, smokiness, and subtle tones of fresh pear, coconut and dried fruit.

    Palate: Havana Club Máximo Extra Añejo is robust yet velvety smooth. It is both dry and sweet. Its woody palate imparts a silky opulence, a cascade of savours accented by dark chocolate, luscious dried fruits  and a hint of vanilla.

    Finish: Havana Club Máximo Extra Añejo has a warm enduring finish, with irresistible spicy notes and uncommon persistence.

    Perfect serve: Havana Club Máximo Extra Añejo is best appreciated by rum connoisseurs as a slow sipping rum, to be savoured neat, and preferably after dinner.

    You people in England do not know how luck and privileged you are to have this fun bottle of rum. It is the best in the world. I am living in the United States of America and it has been illegal here for over 50 years. Have shot glass of it at a restaurant or bar. Or buy one of the cheaper cuban rums. But if you can afford to buy this, please do. You can brag with friends and family about having it and stick to the Americans at the same time. :)

    I had a double shot of this in a snifter that my wife and I shared on our honey moon in Bermuda. It was the greatest beverage I have ever tasted in my life BAR NONE. It is in a league of its own. Anyone who can afford a bottle is getting something special

    it hs a woody taste first than you taste the rum afterwards,

    Had this 2 years ago at the Rum Club in Nottinghill. Fabulous and can almost still taste the rich coffee and vanilla flavours, however Ron Zapaca 23 Anos knocks it around for value.

    Sorry but just cannot compete with Mount Gay Tricentennial - absolute bliss

    This is the epitome of all rums. You will never find anything better.

    Great rum, one off the best I've had but the price is not justified, I agree with Cal, Zacapa Centenario is better. Mount Gay Extra Old also compares favorably. If you do have the opportunity to try Maximo do yourself a favor and drink it slow as the taste changes significantly the more it breathes in the glass.

    I second that, Ill slap anyone who tries to mix that thing.. Cannot taste, its forbidden in the US, so you guys describing the experiences is like blowing smoke on the face of somebody trying to quit smoking....

    Tasted it a few weeks ago. Great rum but certainly not worth 4-5 times as much as Havana Club's 15yr, and I still prefer Zacapa. Maximo has a promising pineapple and toaseted molasses nose but still lacks presence on the palate, especially when tasted next to a big heavy jamaican rum.
