CUBA / 0.70 liter, 40%
Havana Club Añejo 15 años has always been produced in very limited quantities - only 58 barrels a year - through a process of blending and ageing in old oak barrels selected rums and aguardientes several times . The name "Añejo 15 años" means that what you have in your hands is a fabulous final blend elaborated with rum reserves that have been aged for at least 15 years. This unique ageing process helps develop truly distinctive aromas and flavours and gives the extra smoothness that is the hallmark of a top quality rum.
With its distinctive character and elegance, Añejo 15 años surprised us with a clear, bright and full-bodied liquid, enhanced by a mahogany colour. Dried fruits, prunes and raisins aromas stand out with some oak notes. In the mouth, a cascade of well-integrated flavours of sweet fruit, chocolate, coffee, tobacco and spices meet a smooth texture. The finish, a long sweet and complex aftertaste with notes of vanilla and cocoa, confirms that Añejo 15 años is a rum which has been submitted to long and patient natural ageing periods.
For several years now, Havana Club Añejo 15 Años has received many awards underlining the quality of its liquid and the pleasure it produces every time it’s tasted. In 2012, the International Spirits Challenge, one of the most legitimate, respected and influential spirits competitions in the world with over 70 countries participating, rewarded it twice, once again.
