Tributo 2020 by Havana Club



Havana Club has pulled back the curtain on their latest iteration of their Tributo collectionFirst launched back in 2016 by Maestro del Ron Cubano Asbel Morales, this ultra-prestige series of Havana Club rum seeks to embody specific tenets of traditional Cuban rum-making.

Havana Club Tributo 2020

Each annual edition focuses on a different element of the process and the 2020 version pays homage to the unique successive ageing and blending process. These sacred techniques are handed down by the Masters of Cuban Rum – their progenitors dating back nearly a hundred years.

The 2020 edition marks the Tributo collection’s 5th Anniversary and the first of its 2,500 bottles were popped at the Habanos Festival in Havana. With this milestone release, Asbel Morales took the reserves kept from previous Tributo creations (each incredibly rare themselves) and re-aged and blended them with rum drawn from an exclusive batch of 100 casks that have never been seen nor released commercially. By combining these preciously unique and exquisite tipples, the Master of Cuban rum was able to honour not only the process, but the lineage of his passion.

The end product is a refined, luxurious spirit of ineffable depth. Dry and sweet inflections are layered with full-bodied smokiness and rich flavour notes reminiscent of the Tributo 2018 release. An aromatic profile of dried fruits, sweet caramel and bitter chocolate precedes an intense sweetness on the palate, with broad spicy notes that set their embers onto the tongue for minutes thereafter. It truly is a calibre of flavour that elevates Havana Club to a new zenith.

“This year’s edition is a tribute to the Cuban rum process of continuous ageing and blending, which I am confident that cigar aficionados, rum collectors and discerning drinkers will enjoy!”

— Asbel Morales, Maestro del Ron Cubano.

Such a drink demands a carriage corresponding to its own resplendence and Havana Club have once again delivered. The bottle is presented in a luxury box adorned with art-deco style flourishes, with each one numbered and personalised with the signature of Asper Morales himself as a guarantee of quality and excellence. The hedonistic era of the 1920s are evoked by way of dark wood and décor as Havana Club invites you to toast to a roaring 20s of our own with this peerless rum – superiority refined.
