Old Havana Brand 8 y/o

I saw a bottle of Old Havana Brand 8 y/o at my favorite rumshop this weekend. Upon inspection of the back label, I found it was produced in Panama. I have not been able to find any information about this rum online. Does anybody know the details of the distillation and or character of this rum? I can only assume it is a smooth light bodied Cuban "style" rum. It sells for $15 here in Puerto Rico.

That Old Havana is made in Panama and has a somewhat light character. I'm surprised that it is being sold in Puerto Rico. Peter, like my own database, has the occasional flaw. But the rum is worth trying.

I bought a bottle. It's a dry light rum that could use a little more sweetness. The color is a pale gold and it goes down as smooth as you would expect from a rum aged around 8 years. The finish is far from contemplative. I'm glad I'm trying it but there are better rums out there in the "Cuban Style" category.
