Havana Club Seleccion de Maestros represents the ultimate and most perfected expression of the collective involvement of six experienced Maestros Roneros, led by the talented Don Jose Navarro.

In order to create "Seleccion de Maestros", the Maestros Roneros select together the finest aged rums that one by one had been put aside for their truly exceptional quality.

Afterwards, these prestige hand picked rums are blended, then put to age again in specially selected barrels, each chosen for the powerful, aromatic potential of the wood, in which they will develop their character and intensity.

At the end of this final stage in the ageing process, the Maestros Roneros get together to select the rums that will compose the final blend, which will be bottled straight from the barrel at 45% proof. This unique finishing process, the "Cuban Barrel Proof", gives the rum its unequalled aromatic bouquet and an exceptional quality.

Already recognized as a high-quality, ultra-premium rum, Seleccion de Maestros has been awarded a Gold medal by three of the world's most influential spirits competitions: the San Francisco World Spirits Award, the Beverage Testing Institutes International Review of Spirits and the International Wine and Spirit Competition.

Appearance: Havana Club Seleccion de Maestros distinguishes itself by a warm amber hue, with a deep, red glow.

Nose: A light nose of toasted pecan and spice aromas that reveals its robust origins with tobacco aromas and the presence of wood character.

Palate: A round and buoyant entry leads to a complex, flavourful, full-bodied palate of cocoa, coffee, sweet tobacco and brown spices.

Finish: A pleasant smoky oak and spice finish blended with candied fruits, to give the experience a remarkable balance.

Perfect serve: Havana Club Seleccion de Maestros is best enjoyed by rum connoisseurs as a slow-sipping rum, neat or on the rocks.

Review: Seeing the special offer on rum here on thedrinkshop.com. I felt compelled to indulge in something a bit more expensive than normal, something special. And special is the correct word to describe this rum. As equally well balanced in mixer or a cocktail as it is neat on its own, this rum exudes a quiet air of confidence on the tongue with notes of dried tobacco, coffee, burnt creme caramel and unrefined brown sugar. A slow, mature spice in the after taste with longer notes of rich, dark chocolate to finish. An utterly superb bottle of rum which showcases the talents of the Havana distillery to the world. Supremely drinkable and deserving of the name Selecion de Maestros.

Producer Information

A glass of rum, a mint leaf, two ice cubes - The same story keeps repeating itself. The story with the same inseparable components: Cuba, sugar and rum.
Christopher Columbus' discovery of the New World introduced a new plant to Cuba: the sugar cane, already acclimatised by the Spanish in the Canary Islands.
The first cane plants, an original variety carried in the caravels of Christopher Columbus on his second voyage in 1493 and immediately planted in Cuba, germinated vigorously and rapidly produced exceptional crops with a high sugar content.
"Your Majesty, the sugar canes, the few that were planted there, have taken." (A letter from Christopher Columbus to their Catholic Majesties, January 1494).
The sugar cane found an ideal home in Cuba. In the 19th century, influenced by the Spanish Monarchy's search for a more refined rum to please the palate of the elite of the Empire, a new quality of rum was developed in Cuba, said to be superior and called "El Ron Superior".
The island produced the finest cane alcohol for the preparation of rum.
This new drink became an integral part of Cuban life. It was in this context that in 1878, Havana Club rum was born, at the same time as the Cuban music whose rhythms are so popular today.
Derived from this plant, rum is a cheerful drink, so closely identified with the country's economic activity that Cubans of all walks of life and all races honour it as much as their flag.
"Cuban single cane": The use of this generic expression to describe Cuban rum did not occur by chance. Cuban rum is made of a single raw material, fresh cane sugar molasses, with a high aroma and sucrose content that gives Havana Club rum its unique bouquet.
The production of Cuban rum is based on an old, well-established tradition in which time, natural maturing in oak casks and the favourable climate of Cuba comprise an old ritual.
Havana Club rum is matured naturally, with no artificial acceleration. This is the best guarantee of the quality of the finished product.
Maturing is vitally important for the entire range, from Silver Dry, based on aguardiente and matured for 18 months in casks, to the Havana Club 7 years old. Rum takes its natural colour from old American white oak casks that have already been used for manufacturing Bourbon. The storehouses of Santa Cruz del Norte, where the great Havana Club rums mature, are ideally situated, close to the warm waters of the Gulf Stream so dear to the writer Ernest Hemingway, a connoisseur of rum and authentic Cuban cocktails. They enjoy unique conditions, bathed in the warm coastal air, with regular humidity levels and generous tropical sunshine. "Santa Cruz del Norte enjoys all the benefits of its island situation, thanks to the proximity of the marine current which moderates the temperature, the land and sea breezes and the regular climate".
Fernando Campoamor, historian of Cuban rum and a personal friend of Hemingway.
