Rum Review: Havana Club Barrel Proof Rum

Posted by Arctic Wolf on December 13, 2009

This week’s Rum review is an authentic Cuban rum which, to be honest, blew me away by how good it is.  The Barrel Proof rum is a blend of select older rums which are refinished in young oak, and then bottled at 45 % alcohol content.    The finishing in the younger oak allows newer oak tannin to be introduced into the blend.  This is a tricky procedure but one which bears stunning results if done properly.

The Havana Club website expands on this process as if you wish you may give it a read with this link.

    This is a fine tasting rum. If you can get your hands on some, buy it.
    Illegal in the United States of America also. So unique in that way as well.
