Havana Club Añejo 7 Años: A Sophisticated Sipping Rum and Cocktail Canvas 

Havana Club Añejo 7 Años is a jewel in the crown of Cuban rum. Aged for a minimum of seven years in ex-Bourbon barrels, this spirit boasts a rich complexity that entices both rum aficionados and curious newcomers. Whether you're savouring it neat, on the rocks, or using it as the base for a delightful cocktail, Havana Club 7 Años offers a rewarding sensory experience.

Aromatic Depth: A Symphony of Cuban Terroir

As you pour Havana Club 7 Años, the rich amber colour hints at the treasures within. On the nose, a symphony of aromas unfolds. Sweet notes of vanilla and honey intertwine with hints of dried fruits like raisins and prunes. A touch of baking spice, like cinnamon and nutmeg, adds warmth, while a subtle smokiness, reminiscent of tobacco, adds intrigue. This interplay of aromas is a testament to the rum's ageing process, where the ex-Bourbon barrels impart their own unique character.

Flavourful Journey: A Balance of Richness and Refinement

The first sip of Havana Club 7 Años is a revelation. The initial sweetness gives way to a delightful wave of flavours. Hints of molasses and caramel emerge, balanced by the subtle oakiness from the barrel ageing. There's a touch of ripe banana and tropical fruit, adding a touch of freshness. The peppery spice from the rum itself peeks through, adding complexity without overwhelming the palate. The finish is smooth and lingering, with a pleasant warmth that invites another sip.

Sipping Suggestions: Unlocking the Full Potential

Havana Club 7 Años is a versatile spirit, equally enjoyable neat, on the rocks, or used in cocktails.

  • Neat: For the purist, sipping Havana Club 7 Años neat allows you to appreciate the full spectrum of its flavours and aromas. Use a tulip-shaped glass to capture the bouquet and take small sips, savouring the journey.
  • On the Rocks: A touch of dilution can open up the rum's character further. Large ice cubes melt slowly, preserving the rum's integrity while allowing it to breathe.

Cocktail Canvas: Havana Club 7 Años as the Star

Havana Club 7 Años is a dream base for a variety of cocktails. Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

  • Havana Old Fashioned: A sophisticated twist on the classic. Combine 50ml Havana Club 7 Años, 2 dashes of Angostura bitters, a teaspoon of sugar, and 3 ice cubes in a rocks glass. Stir gently, garnish with an orange twist, and enjoy the rich complexity.
  • Daiquiri: A Cuban classic reborn. Muddle a bar spoon of lime juice with a teaspoon of sugar in a shaker. Add 50ml Havana Club 7 Años and ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled coupe glass. This version offers a touch more depth and body than the traditional recipe.
  • El Presidente: A delightful blend of citrus and rum. Combine 50ml Havana Club 7 Años, 25ml dry vermouth, 12.5ml orange curaçao, and a dash of grenadine in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry for a touch of elegance.
