Cuba has a long tradition of rum-making dating back to when Christopher Columbus introduced sugar cane to the island. The crop flourished in the favourable climate and fertile soil. Production of sugar soon followed and by 1620 there were 50 sugar refineries in Cuba. By the 1800s, the rum-making process had been refined with the introduction of copper stills and the concept of ageing the spirit in pots buried in the earth and wooden barrels. The second half of the 19th century saw the production of a lighter, more delicate rum, aged in white oak casks, developed initially “for the elite” on the instruction of the Spanish Crown.

The Seven Year Old is the pride of the Havana Club portfolio, its quality the result of strict adherence to traditional processes. Composed of rums aged for a minimum of 7 years, some substantially older, it's appreciated as a slow sipping rum and a perfect compliment to its Cuban brother, the Havana cigar.

.... A nicely done expression that captures the depth and complexity that a rum can achieve while still maintaining a freshness and a definite Cuban terroir. - spiritsreview.com
