Something strange .......
The real deal - full stop!
This was nationalized after centuries of exploitation of the Cuban people. Cuban rum is the best, the only kind I buy here in Canada. Why can't Bacardi make a better one, if they're so smart? Because it's the Cuban soil that makes it good, not some recipe. Long live the revolution!

Cuban Version vs. Bacardi version
Yes, HC7 is totally different from the 'regular' Bacardi rum we buy here in the USA. The difference is due to the type oc raw products used, primarily the sugar cane which is said to yield much sweeter sugar than other types...that and the soil, etc.
It should be noted that the recipe for this product originates with the original Bacardi family in Cuba and datesn to the 1800's. Sadly, it was srolen along with the distillery by the communists when they took over the island. Thankfully, the Bacardi family somehow saw to it that their name would not be used in the manufacture of this popular now communist product.

the Cuban version is so much better than the Bacardi version you are forced to buy in the US.

Being from the crazy USA I can only enjoy this delight while abroad but that's part of the fun. Nonetheless, it is a style of rum that is lost on most Americans as it is not super oaked, rather it displays subtle spice, sweet dried fruit and rich toffee / coffee notes. One would not be remiss comparing it to Haitian rum in style and finesse, though superior in oak / distillate integration. And the price!? Fuugettaboutit! They may as well be giving it away. Enjoy!

We love the 7 yr Havana club .......a great sipping rum we always bring home Everytime we are in Cuba......going back many years. But I have a question someone might have an answer to. we have just noticed in 2 of the bottles, in the bottom. Avery small, white plastic or glass marble. ANYONE else noticed this and why it would be there. The rum was still as good as ever but wonder why these were in the bottle .? Can someone explain this odd addition to the rum ? !
