It was customary for the Cuban Maestros to drink Extra aged rums at the distillery but it was Don Jose Navarro who decided to share this very style of rum with the rest of the world.
Havana Club 7 Year Old is like fine wine. It taste of rich sweet fruits in a Cuban garden with a hint of spice and vanilla brought by the long ageing. You can even taste the Cuban sugarcane which is the raw material of rum.
Some rums are made to be mixed, this style was made to be savoured neat. Putting to good use the tradition and the skills previous generations of Maestros handed down to him, Navarro blended and aged his nectar over numerous cycles in order to create a very complex rum with a wealth of flavours that remains incredibly easy to enjoy neat.
To create Havana Club Añejo 7 Años, it takes more than 14 years and the minimum age of any rum in the blend is 7 years. This guaranteed youngest drop policy is made possible by ageing and blending individual barrels, a truly unique technique in the world of rum.
