The company Havana Club International presented Cuban Barrel Proof, a new member of the select family of Cuban rums.

The new product, which is bottled directly from oak casks, without being purified or diluted, was created by Maestro Jose Navarro, who obtained that rum of incredible flavor, color and brilliance.

The rum leaves a pleasant aftertaste due to its 45 degrees of alcohol, and has a mixed flavor of cocoa and coffee.

According to experts, Cuban Barrel Proof won the gold medal with “Exceptional” Mention at a contest in Chicago (the International Review of Spirits 2004, B.T.I.), in which the world’s 56 best rums participated.

Havana Club’s line of rum includes Silver Dry, 3 Year Old, Aged Gold, Special Aged, 7 Year Old, Cuban Barrel Proof, 15 Year Old and San Cristobal de La Habana.

Experts said that the new brand resulted from cooperation between Corporacion CubaRon and the French group Pernod Ricard.

Send a couple of bottles to the White House, maybe they will lighten up a bit!
