Another excellent limited edition rum from Havana Club’s Edición Profesional (Professional Editions) series.
This range sees Havana Club invite top bartenders from around the world to collaborate on producing special rums, designed for bar service.
This time round, they have picked the brains of superstar bartenders Carina Soto Velasquez and Alex Kratena. Havana Club Edición Profesional C is a combination of youthful aguardiente, rich in aromas and fragrances, and older rum that is packed with dignified deeper flavours to provide balance. The rum was aged for up to 12 years in large white oak barrels, themselves as old as 40 years.
The final result is a rum that serves up notes vanilla, some gentle herbs, black pepper, bananas, pineapple, nutmeg, a little chilli, cinnamon, apples, bright molasses, fresh pastry, cinnamon, toasted oak and milk chocolate.
An excellent rum that would work well in cocktails as well as served neat.
