I spent a few days in Santiago de Cuba and Holguin last month. Just for information sake...large bottle of HC 7 year is $14.90 CUC which is about $17.00 us.

Default Havanna Club and Others

While living as an expatriate in Trinidad I attended the Caribcom Conference in Port of Spain, Trinidad. Most of the island nations in the Caribbean including Cuba were represented. Cuba's Ministry of Trade hosted the booth. I purchased two bottles of Havanna Club rum along with some hand rolled cuban cigars. (They rolled the cigars from an actual bale of tobacco brought from Cuba.) Both the rum AND the cigars were excellent!

Other favorites of mine are:

Mt. Gay Extra Old (Barbados)
Royal Oak (Trinidad)
Westerhall (Grenada)

Like trying to decide your favorite ice cream, it’s all good!

I like the 7 y.o. on the rocks and the 3 y.o. with tonic - but it depends where I'm quaffing, as taxes, etc. can kill the QPR for me (i.e., I do not like spending $30 on the 7 y.o. if I can pick up a local brand for ten bucks) - I keep them at home for scarcity and variety more than anything else

Default Importing Cuban rums to US from Mexico

[New relaxed U.S. policies now allow travelers to Cuba to import $100 of Cuban rum / cigars back to U.S.
Curious if same rule will apply to Cuban products coming in through Mexico,Canada,or Europe?
