Not real Havana Club it's mixed
Apparently,the anti tampering check valves inserted in the bottles have been broken,releasing the white plastic marble to the bottom of the bottle.These are inserted to protect the contents from tampering.(can't pour a cheaper rum into the HC labeled bottle without breaking them).Your rums may have been switched?

I have spent a lot of time in Havana. I can promise you this has been mixed with some other rum. None of the Havana clubs have a bite to them. A real bottle of 7 year costs $5.00, and they have to mix it so they don't have to pay excise tax/tariff

This is one of our favorie rums in the world and a spectacular value. In Mexico this costs around $270 MXN (or 12.5 GBP or $20 USD) which makes it possible to have this and the 3yr on hand at all times as our 'house' rums in Mexico. Sadly, still not available in the US. We use it in proper Tiki drinks, Cuba Libres (try w/bitters!), mojitos, and neat. Yes! though this rum is lighter in flavor than most thick often cloyingly sweet Caribbean rums, we love it neat.

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!

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.

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!
