Havana Club Professional Edition C is "a rich and raw gold rum" blended from young aromatic aguardiente with older rum bases aged in San José distillery's ageing warehouses. The blend was "matured for up to 12 years in large white oak barrels that are up to 40 years old".
Released in October 2019, this is one of two new rums (see also Edition D) in Havana Club's Professional Edition series produced by Cuban Maestro del Ron Cabano, Asbel Morales in collaboration with leading bartenders, Carina Soto Velasquez and Alex Kratena.
