EDITIONB

A rich and smoky
premium dark rum

EDITION B

The ultimate balance between rich rum flavors and dry smoky notes.
Edition B was born when, by a twist of fate, a shipment of Islay whisky casks arrived in Cuba by mistake.
Maestro Asbel Morales decided to experiment, finishing small quantities of rum bases in the Islay barrels.

After promising results, renowned bartender Nick Strangeway was brought on board to consult on the perfect dark rum for mixing cocktails, one achieving a delicate balance between dry whisky notes and rich rum flavors.

Havana Club Master of Cuban Rum
asbel
morales
As a Maestro Ronero, he plays a key role in the creation of Havana Club rums. After a degree in chemical engineering, Asbel Morales earned his title of Maestro del Ron Cubano at Havana Club over 15 years ago, and has been working at the San José Distillery since 2007.
Edition B starts with a blend of 3 rum bases aged a minimum of 7 years each, of which one finished in smoky Islay barrels.

While the starting point is similar to Havana 7, the blending
proportions are different. With the unusual addition of a base aged in whisky barrels, monitored and selected with Nick Strangeway, the results are as inspiring as you might expect.
A super premium dark rum, dry and richly smoky.
TASTING NOTES
Color
Deep amber color, with brightness and clarity typical of Havana Club rum.

Nose
Highly balanced, smooth when inhaling, a fruity aroma punctuated by subtle notes of oak and very light smoke.

Mouth
Intense and complex, smokiness. Clean and full bodied, a result of natural ageing in white oak barrels. Dry, balanced aftertaste.
