Customer Rating

A relaunch of Havana Club's Cuban Barrel Proof edition, Selección de Maestros has benefited from an eye-catching packaging upgrade and is bottled at 45% for extra oomph.

The Gold Medal-winning liquid inside Havana Club Selección de Maestros remains the same as for the old Cuban Barrel Proof - as the name suggests, the casks have been hand-picked by the maestros roneros from the company's finest aged stocks.

The rums selected by the maestros roneros are finished in special casks chosen for their aromatic properties before being bottled at a higher strength than the standard range for a more intense, immediate flavour on the palate.

Havana Club Seleccion de Maestros Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Hector M

    Nose: You can tell that this has a good proportion of older spirit in the mix, with an expressive nose of soft fruits, peach and light citrus notes giving way to a palate very akin to the bourbons made across the water in mainland America.

    Palate: Mouthcoating, piney and caramel-heavy.

    Finish: Creamy and spicy; begs for a repeat visit.


  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Appearance: Havana Club Seleccion de Maestros distinguishes itself by a warm amber hue, with a deep red glow.

    Nose: A light nose of caramel, toasted pecan and spice aromas which reveals more robust origins with tobacco aromas and the presence of wood character.

    Palate: A round and buoyant entry leads to a complex, flavourful, full-bodied palate of dark caramel, cocoa, coffee, sweet tobacco and brown spices.

    Finish: A pleasant smoky oak and spice finish blended with caramelised fruits to give the experience a remarkable balance.

    Delicious and smooth. I drop a couple of ice cubes in a glass and enjoy it like a single malt. I'll be ordering this again.

    My beloved Magdalines selected this bottle when she visited her family in Cuba. I’m a Bourbon/whiskey drinker. This bottle is beyond amazing! Deep caramel accents but yet light on the pallet. I would hesitate to use it in a mojito as the mint and lime would mask its brilliance. I’d rather see it expressed as an alternative to whiskey or bourbon in a Manhattan or Old Fashioned. Either way it’s delish!

    Bought a bottle in the Havana club shop in Havana this May having had a tour round the gaff. I Think this is a fabulous sipping rum but even stands out in a cocktail! This rum has enough depth to interest whisky drinkers too. Good value for money too!

    Probably my favourite rum from the Caribbean – makes the best Mojitos.

    Had this in Cuba and enjoyed it. It's no the best rum I've tasted and I certainly think there's better rums in the price bracket. That said it was pleasant enough.

    It was a gift for my sister so I haven't tried it myself sadly but she is absolutely over the moon with the product. It arrived quickly, being able to track it was very useful and it was so well packaged and protected. Very good experience over all!

    Bought this rum for my partner's birthday with engraving on the bottle, he said it was excellent. He usually drinks the Havana Club 7 so this was a change for him. Brilliant gift.

    I bought some of this rum on a recent tripto Cuba. It is an excellent rum! I also bought some of the Havana Club 7 too which was very good. Of course when I was there I had to buy some Cuban cigars even though I hadn't smoked a cigar in years. These rums coupled with Cohiba cigars are exquistite! The chocolate finish is really unbelievable. If you smoke cigars it's unbelieveable, if you just like rum it's the best I've ever had!

    Fairly new to rums, as have always been a whisky drinker. But by far the most notable I have had the pleasure of tasting. The notes compliment a cigar as well.
