Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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 very smooth rum that doesn't fully deliver on the performance I would expect for this money.
It lacks in depth and richness and delivers instead in a smooth and buttery kind of way. I was surprised that leaving it to breathe in my glass for 15 minutes didn't really open up anything new. It's all just a bit plain. It's not something I will remember and it will move to the back of the cabinet now. Maybe I'll try it next year again but I have too many nicer rums.
Got it as a gift and I must say the the quality of that rum is good.
Slightly expensive but wonderful product. Everything exudes quality, from the beautifully finished bottle to the brownish amber floating inside. Once it have had some time to breathe, and this is important in my opinion, the nose greets you with hazelnuts, butter, roasted brown sugar and a hint of leather and oak. It's very refined. On the palate I pick up delightful things like soft oak and leather, buttery nuttiness and candied apples, fading into a dark and tingling finish, rolling back to the soft oaky notes.
This rum is very, very good in a no nonsense kinda way, but as mentioned above it's key to let it breathe for a good while.
Good rum to sip from that I put next to the Diplomatico as a reference. Very enjoyable!
It's one of my top 5 rums smooth sweet oaky flavours to sip to
Great nose, not too sweet but sweet, Carmel notes, vanilla, spice, lingering finish. Most expensive bottle of Run I have but worth a taste if you get the chance!
I did like this rum, although to me it tasted more of a whiskey/bourbon rather than a rum. This rum also has a decently high price.
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.
such a damn good sipping rum. bit stong with the alcohol but one of my favorite
This is when it gets real people, in my experience there are sweet rum lovers and more raw rum lovers. I'm the latter, thus my rating, but if you are to sweeter notes you should definitely give this and any of the flor vintages a go.
Good one to start the tasting session with. Very discrete, dry and smooth, yet complex. Some days I love it, some I'm undecided.
A bit bitter. Tastes of tabacco, wood with a buttery finish
Absolutely one of my favorite rums. Shows that Flor de Cana knows how to do rum well.
Inconfundable taste, a lot of flavour and aroma, very sensitive, incredible aftertaste, loooong finish.
Love the taste.. This is my rum to celebrate special occasions..
What a taste. Smells so good. So easy to drink. I really appreciate it. For me, a must. So smooth and round.
Good. Really good. Wood, vanilla, leather, dark chocolate. Fantastic.
Very pleasant to sip, and the finish reminded us of hazelnuts.
One of the best.. couldn't help myself and kept on pouring another and another... !
A truly excellent Rum and Incredibly smooth. Great notes of caramel but a bit lighter vanilla notes than expected but still present. A bit on the pricey side but one of the top 5 Rums I have had.
Yes, it is nice, little on the sweet side, fantastic nose, lot of flavours. Nose lets you to expect little more
If you looking for a good quality rum, this is it FDC 25.. Absolutely superb.
Dark amber colored rum distilled from molasses and has been aged 25 years in whisky & bourbon barrels. Pastry notes with almond and other dried fruits. On the palate, there are pastry notes with notes of candied fruits, orange & mango. Long on the palate, soft but firm. This rum is more complex than the 18y and finished on woody notes with the vanilla that arrives in the long run. Good but missing something to have a 10.
For me this was exceptional in taste, smell. Drink neat, clear Caramel taste with hints of spice. Have not been able to locate in Canada as I bought this on one of the ports on our cruise. If you see it get it you will not regret the spend.
I am a huge fan of FdC and couldn't wait to get my hands on a bottle of the 25. Now that I have had the pleasure I don't believe I will be buying it again. Stick with the 12 year or the 18 if you want something fancy but don't want to break the bank. The 25 just doesn't live up to the price.
