The values of Havana Club are best represented by the Maestros del Ron Cubano. This is not a job taught in textbooks. As Don José Navarro, the premier Maestro del Ron Cubano puts it, it is “a cultural heritage, passed on from Maestro to Maestro”. For 15 long years the aspiring Maestro undergoes through a rigorous training. Under the supervision of a senior Maestro del Ron Cubano he learns to select the best molasses, supervise their fermentation and distillation, pick the best casks to age the distillates and blend them to obtain the finest rums. A Maestro del Ron Cubano is a true master of his craft.
Custodians of an age-old tradition passed down from generation to generation and honored as part of Cuba’s cultural patrimony, the Maestros del Ron Cubano are the reason why Havana Club's premium rums rival any spirit in the world.
Together and singly they have aged and blended the finest rum reserves to produce the Icónica Collection. Each bottle is a testament to the skill and passion of the Maestros del Ron Cubano past and present.
The 2018 release of Havana Club Tributo, 2500 bottles only, presents a deep, bright, and clear amber glow. On the nose, the expression has a rich, balanced aroma with notes of dried fruits and raisins and subtle hints of oak. On the palate, the expression is a powerful and full-bodied blend with a long finish that brings to life years of natural aging in white oak barrels.
