Havana Club Union, a Rum to be enjoyed with a Cohiba Siglo VI

     Havana Club has announced the launch of their newest rum, one that is to be paired with a fine
Cohiba Cigar.   Havana Club Union is the latest in a line of ultra premium rums launched in the past few years.  

     "Havana Club, the leading rum in the super-premium category, has announced the launch of Havana Club Unión, the first-ever rum made to perfectly match a Cuban cigar, the Cohiba Siglo VI. The new expression is the latest prestige product in the Havana Club Icónica Collection and will appeal to rum and cigar connoisseurs seeking to experience true Cuban culture."

     With the easing of the embargo, many of these rums and cigars will be soon available to us here in America.    To see the expressions of this quality being released now is very exciting. 
"A premium cedar wooden box houses the expression, and features the logos of Havana Club and Cohiba together in an elegant combination of black and gold colors, bringing the luxury character of the expression to life. The bottle’s clean and round design is in line with the distinct shape of Havana Club’s award-winning Icónica Collection, which includes the brand’s most prestigious rums; Havana Club Selección de Maestros, Havana Club Añejo 15 Años and Havana Club Máximo Extra Añejo."

     The rum has a deep amber color with a nose of smoke, oak, along with vanilla, coconut and dried fruits and coffee.     On the palate there is a softly woody flavor that is highlighted with sweet vanilla, chocolate and dried fruit flavors.   The finish is of a long lasting rich and aromatic nature.
     This is an ideal rum to sit of the roof of the Inglaterra Hotel in Havana with a Cohiba Siglo Vi and enjoy the skyline as the sun goes down.  I'm sure looking forward to being able to enjoy this fine rum very soon when I visit an airport with a duty free shop in the near future.  ;o)
