Inconfundable taste, a lot of flavour and aroma, very sensitive, incredible aftertaste, loooong finish.
Lidt skarp alkohol lugt, når den lige er kommet i glasset. Og lidt skarp smag i starten. God smag minder mig lidt om de gode cubanske rom, men eftersmagen er lidt skuffende i forhold til dem. (kort)
Bedre end 18 det er den men skuffende til prisen.
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!
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.
A pleasant spicy flavor with rich smoothness on the tongue. Beautiful rich color. Hint of dry fruit and mild sweetness. Slight tobacco smell as it dries in the glass. Very nice.
First it's sharp of taste. This rum must be first acclimate! after acclimate it's smoother
Purchased a sample from Master of Malt for £11.52.
Wonderful super premium rum, ultra smooth and wonderfully complex! Floral and sweet on the nose, in the mouth it's fruity, rich and oak with a touch of spice and a long finish.
The Flor de Caña 25 is beautifully presented in a tasteful box with the elegant rectangular bottle we associate with the higher end Flor de Caña rums. The aroma is slightly sweet and entices you to dive in. This is a smooth rum, with no bite and very little burn. You get the caramel, slight smoke and oak with an aftertaste that makes me want to keep sipping to prolong that aftertaste. I'm still trying to find my "10" rum, but this is my favorite sipping rum so far.
Maybe a bit bitter, but at the right conditions strong flavors come out which pair very well with cigar.
A deep and dark amber hue. Its aroma with hints of vanilla, wood and dark cocao, draws you into a smooth, luxurious taste that offers further notes of fruit, almond and caramel and a touch of oak. A smooth, buttery and dry finish.
Flor de Caña Nicaraguan 25 year rum has an exquisite taste. It is smooth with delicate flavor.
Aromas and flavours of caramel, honey and oak. Slightly dry, long persistent oaky finish. But too expensive at 170USD.
Just wow. Very smooth. It's my kind of rum. Close To the 10.
This was my first "expensive" rum, just a pleasure to taste.
Deilig rund rom, absolutt verdt ett forsøk
You got to taste it, Nice
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
Deep dark and slightly sweet. I enjoyed this with a nice Perdomo 20 year anniversary cigar. At $16 a pour I could only sample one. It was my birthday so why not. I would do it again next year. They also had the 4 year which wasn't as dark and flavorful but went better with the cigar.
N- Notice they have actually TM the term "Slow Aged", and would be great it does meant to reflect the actual years spent in the barrel. The bouquet of this highly acclaimed bottling does open up well with solid presents of austere woody notes, spiky spices lurking with sweet chrysanthemum tea. Late coming warm waves of cocoa drift on the emerging sweet smokes. Quite flawless and balanced. (22/25)
P- Elegant oak with notable expensive waxy orange, as well the nutty almonds and cashew oil. Soft sweet spice added dimensions. Calm with ocean of depth but short on waves for the width. (21/25)
F- Short-medium, like what derive from the palate, plenty of body with fine oak, a very good charming bottling for most palate. (20/25)
Balanced:- The fine waxy orange feel a bit lonely here. (20/25)
Weighted Rate:- 83pt
Presentation: Beautiful box with engraved history and brief description of its origins.
Bottle: Better than other younger rums from Flor de Caña. I do not like it looks too close to the 12y
Color-Aspect: Dark cooper, looks heavy in the glass with thick, strong, slow moving legs. This part is impressive! The legs will disappear after a while but several large drops will stay attached to the glass forever
Aroma: Esters, asfalt, definitely NOT a sweet aroma. Heavy alcohol at first. After multiple small breaths there are spices and a hint of chocolate.
Palate: Very easy in the tongue, maybe too simple from what I expected after that nice smell. Not to sweet, spices again. Mild sherry.
Finish: very poor, almost none. It was gone after few seconds. I was hoping for more but I felt it clear too fast. It felt almost all in the tongue but nothing impressive in the palate (anatomically speaking😎)
Overall: Just an 8 from a rum that I expected to shock me but I will definitely give another try in a few weeks!
Un ron delicioso con aroma perfecto para disfrutarlo puro.
El mejor logro de Flor de Caña
Very declicous single estate rum, very soft and smooth. BUT. In my humble opinion the flavour and aroma disappear far too quickly, a pity because again, it's a very tasteful rum!
relativne slusny rum, klasika, ktora ma vsetko co ma mat, ale nic specialne. za tu cenu davam bod dole lebo za tie peniaze je velmi vela lepsich rumov 8,1/10
Personally i have 2 bottles; this Flor de Caña is a ripe rum that in my opinion is perfect, perfect for the type of rum that is. It has a nice dark amber color, when it emanates vanilla, caramel, dried fruits and wood (oak) odors; the taste has the same characteristics that emanate odors, besides it's not so dry, nor so strong. I think it has an excellent balance, which makes it perfect in its kind.
En lo personal tengo 2 botellas; este Flor de Caña es un ron maduro que a mi parecer es perfecto, perfecto para el tipo de ron que es. Tiene un agradable color ámbar oscuro, al servirlo emana olores de vainilla, caramelo, frutas secas y madera (roble); el sabor tiene las mismas características que emanan los olores, ademas no es tan seco, ni tan fuerte. Yo creo que tiene un excelente equilibrio, lo que lo hace perfecto en su tipo.
Nice rum, a bit expensive. But I understand really 25 y old.
Dark color rich smell of caramel and soft oakiness wich you find back in the taste and some vanilla. Very smooth especially if you let it breath for about 10 min.... I poured it true a Venturi aerator to enhance the smell and taste.
Flor de Cana 25 year old was initially tasted at the Flor de Cana distillery in Chichigalpa Nicaragua and the initial feeling was much more closer to a high end cognac instead of a sweet and flavorful aged rum. It is super smooth and has no afterburn, but it is very dry for an aged rum. If you like quality cognac, you will absolutely fall in love with this rum.
