What (moderately priced) Cuban rum to buy in Cuba?

Caitlin McGrath | Jan 3, 2017 10:53 PM

My mother is spending the next couple of weeks in Cuba, and has said she'll bring me back some rum. One bottle, and she will probably not want to spend more than, say, US$25-30. I don't have personal experience with Cuban rums, so my familiarity is pretty superficial. She can presumably pick up something representative and well known/liked, like Havana Club Añejo 7 Años, but I'm happy to entertain any and all suggestions for a best-bet bottle in that budget range she might find locally (she'll be in Havana and elsewhere, but starting and ending the trip in Havana) or at the duty free shop before she heads back to the States.
