Default Havana Club

Recently I was in Mexico and came across Havana Club rum, purportedly from Cuba. The packaging was in Spanish, and the bottle had both a Mexican government importation and a Cuban government seal stating "Cuban Government's warranty for Cuban rum." I enjoyed the rum very much, but have heard Mexico is especially notorious for passing off 'fake' Cuban products (particularly cigars and rum).
It got me to wondering if the Havana Club I consumed on the Costa Maya - in a vain attempt to undermine the Castro regime by drinking it dry - was the 'real deal' or not.
I would appreciate any help or opinions the list members care to share with me.

Thanks!

By the way, I thought the stuff was very good and I will miss being able to consume more of it here in the Great White North!
