Tasting notes of the Havana Club Selección de Maestros:
Havana Club Selección de Maestros is distinguished by a warm amber color, with a deep red glow. On the nose, toasted walnuts and aromas of spices reveal more robust origins and the character of the wood. In the mouth, a round and buoyant entry results in a complex flavor on the palate: a corpulent palette of hints of cocoa, coffee, sweet tobacco and aromatic spices. A pleasant finish of smoked oak and spices mixed with candied fruits, offers a remarkable balancing experience.
“In the mouth it is smooth, pleasant and aromatic, it offers an exotic journey through a world of flavors”, comment the Masters of Cuban Rum.
