Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is a very espectacular rum with a great finish, definitely one of my favorites. Cheers!
its so fine and well balanced wood caramel its just amazing
Good. Really good. Wood, vanilla, leather, dark chocolate. Fantastic.
Sugar: estimated at 15 GPL. I found this rum to be sweeter than any of the other rums in the Flor de Cana lineup and I like my rums in the 15 to 20 GPL range.
It's my opinion that this is the All Star rum in the Flor de Cana lineup. Can't help myself, it's World Series time of the year. You will find this to be a perfectly balanced mixture of oak, vanilla, caramel, with a hint of smoke, spice and maybe a touch of leather in your glass. Smooth on entry then an explosion of the flavors mentioned. All of this is followed by a nice long warm aftertaste. Note: Let this breath a bit before sipping. This rum is in the same league as the Abuelo Centura and not surprisingly it's the same price. Save this rum for special occasions or it will be gone before you know it.
This Rum in a bit expensive, but it makes us happy.
It's aroma with hints of butter caramel, vanilla, dark chocolate, and also nuts.
It was good enough for Flor de Cana18, but this one is more rich, much higher level.
Got it as a gift and I must say the the quality of that rum is good.
Smooth and clean . No sweet at all. Let it sit and breathe for a short wile.
Less sweet than Zacapa XO
I used to be a scotch drinker and after trying this I am a 25 year Flor De Cana drinker. Best tasting aged spirit I have ever tried.
If $150 is not much for you, then give this one a go. But if you check my cabinet, I can name one better for $50. Having said that, this is one of the smoothest rums you will ever drink. Light burn, mellow molasses flavor.
Up there with the legends like Mount Gay 1703 and Ron Zacapa XO. Unbelievably smooth. Very expensive, but worth the extra bones. Nectar of the gods.
I believe my pallet is not that sophisticated but even I can taste this is amazing. I typically like darker Caribbean rums but this is heaven
Flor de Caña Nicaraguan 25 year rum has an exquisite taste. It is smooth with delicate flavor.
This is the best rum I have ever had. Each glass is a feast to drink.
I suppose this top shelf rum is one of the best. This one is not for Zacapa lovers, due to the fact it's unsweetened.
Aroma is lil oaky, rich fruit (pear, apple skin), burnt coco, raw blanched cocoa nib
Taste is a bit floral, with little acid bite of fresh coffee.
Density is perfect for sipping, golden and amber color is magnificent
This one is a pearl from the rum world.
Especially recomended with nicaraguan cigar (Oliva)
Amazing spirit! Very complex rum, is like an explosion of flavors on your palate. Surprisingly not super woody for a 25 yeras. I almost feel like im not even qualify to review this rum, this was made for the pros!
En la copa, tiene un color ámbar oscuro.
En la nariz, hay caramelo, vainilla, almendra amarga y aromas de roble suaves.
En boca, es seco, no tan fuertemente amaderado como era de esperar de un 25 anos. Las notas de madera se equilibran junto con caramelo, vainilla y almendras amargas.
Compleja, termina agudo y seco con el roble suave, no es dulce ni empalagoso Fenomenal
Flor de Cana 12 got me into good aged rums and led me to this 25 year, which is my opinion of perfection. I am still new to the descriptions, so I'll do my best. It is a smooth rich rum. If full bodied is appropriate, that is what it is. When you pour it, you can tell it has more body to it than most. I taste the hints of charred oak burboun barrels. It sips like a fine burboun but sweeter and smoother with no aftertaste. I like it over a few cubes of ice. For me there is no equal to this rum.
If you looking for a good quality rum, this is it FDC 25.. Absolutely superb.
What a taste. Smells so good. So easy to drink. I really appreciate it. For me, a must. So smooth and round.
Wonderful starting taste of vanilla, dried fruits ,caramel, a few floral accents and wood...
Taste of sweet aromas of almonds, nougat,raisins,chocolate,cherry and apple caramelized, a bit spicy.
Finish: Persistent, aromatic flavor.
Beautifully balanced wood, caramel, vanilla notes. Very smooth and soft nose.
I'm usually more a whisky drinker and i must admit that I'm not very experienced with Rum. But I had to occasion to compare the 25Y & 30Y (1988, single cask)
both rum's are really smooth with lots of vanilla. But the 30Y has more 'deepness and was my personal favorite. But as a whisky drinker I'm positivly suprised with both rums! I will definitely try more rum in the future 😁😋
Among the smoothest and most delicate old rum, a fantastic finish, I would rate it 8.5 as it misses a bit of character to deserve a 9-10
