Havana Club 15 YO acquires its complexity of taste in an aging process of at least 15 years. Only 58 barrels are produced each year, the result of a strict selection process, mixing and multiple aging in oak barrels. Some parts have aged several decades, and the strong evaporation concentrates the flavors and creates the fullness of taste.
Rum Pacto Navio by Havana Club has been created by Cuban Asbel Morales, Maestro Ronero Havana Club house. It follows a set of ten traditional rums (ie molasses as are almost all Cuban rums). Fermentation is short (only 24 hours) with Cuban yeasts. The water used is derived from ground water, and distillation is carried out continuously in a column with a small filtration. The rums that are assembled between 7 years (mainly) and 15 years. For the aging of each of the rums that make up the mixture a dynamic method of aging is used which is different from the traditional Spanish solera method. It is a very soft rum, almost creamy with marked notes of caramel and vanilla.
