Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This rum just makes the sipper class for me..and at about $20 bucks a bottle that is something...slight alcohol bite, but that's expected at 4 years. Great as a mixer as well.
Best rum in it's class. In fact, better then alot of the rums in the $50 - $100 per liter category.
I decided to give this a try based on its rating. It’s smooth with a hint of vanilla, and it tastes great in a mixer (how I usually consume my rum). It’s not bitter and grows on you as you finish your first drink and happily order/make another. Thumbs up!
Un ron que conserva sabores clásicos de un ron joven pero no deja resaca al día siguiente.
Para un costo beneficio positivo.
Easy to find and relatively well reviewed for the price. I just don't like it. There's something fruity maybe about it that I could never place.
its a good rum to drink in the Cubas Libres. The flavour is good!
I first tasted this rum while in Costa Rica at the Secrets resort in Papagaya. I used to drink Capt. Morgan and they didn't have it. So, I had to try a dark rum and this was delicious! It is so smooth you could drink it easily on the rocks, but I drank it with diet coke. Now I hope I can find it here in Florida. Love the rich taste and how smooth it is. I also tried it with creame of coconut and pineapple juice and it was yummy with it too.
In order to drink this rum neat with no problem whatsoever, since it's 4 years old is by drinking it on the shots. This method is perfect since it goes down real smoothly without any sensation of burn or bitternesss whatsoever. If you want to sip it like wine then the best possible way is by doing it on the rocks or by buying the 7 year old Flor De Caña neat. I love this rum on the shots because it goes down so smoothly, feels good, and has a deep dark mellow sweet taste of caramel and a awesome smell of nectar flowers. It's a must buy for spirit lovers. Shots only !!
My rum tasting began 15 years ago with Flor de Cana 4, 5 and 7 year old bottles purchased from a gas station while road tripping in Central America. Great memories, but the fact is that these are not neat sipping rums. They will however make a very good rum-and-coke, and especially if enjoyed in its natural habitat.
Un ron que no está nada mal, sobre todo por la relación calidad/precio. Para tomar en cocteles.
Cheap enough to add some depth of flavor to a tiki cocktail, and cheap enough to not feel bad mixing it.. still good enough to sip neat or on the rocks.
Not bad, good with Coke or others mixing. A nice looking rum.
Smooth, even flavor. Caribbean style, which is not my personal favorite, but this was enjoyable. Great value.
As a beginner to rums, trying it neat or on the rocks was too harsh. It mixed well with coke and would probably be good with other cocktails (like mai tais).
This is my go to for a mojito. Fresh mint from the yard, limes, a bit of sugar and FdC 4 year. Amazing.
Excelente ron para mezclar .. ron con coca una excelente opción, grata sorpresa. Ron un poco dulce y con poco sabor a madera comparado con el resto de los rones de flor de caña.
This was a good rum. I don't LOVE it, but nothing to complain about. Good flavor, nice finish. Good with Coke.
Not smooth enough for a Sipping Rum, but ideal for mixing with coke
A good start for tasting rums in Nicaragua. It's very smooth and you can drink it straight up or mixed.
Just before tasting this rum I had tasted and reviewed the Flor de Cana Gran Reserva 7-year.
First off, there's very little difference between the two.
The aroma is just about the same however this is a lighter amber...almost a liquid golden hue.
The flavor is complex as well. Just not as complex and smooth as the 7-year. But close. I pick up on the initial hint of sweetness and vanilla and then the oak flavor. A dry finish as well. Just not quite as smooth at the 7-year.
I give both rums a 7 but it is more along the lines of a 7.75 for the 7-year as opposed to a 7.0 for the 4 year. A tad too rough to be a sipping rum for most but a great mixing rum.
This is one of the best dry rums you can buy and is amazing value for money..... I drank a lot of this is Canada and will continue to drink it jn the future
I was interested in trying this because it had a score of 9 (as of this review) and only cost 10.99 (K&L Wines 2016). I tried this side by side with the Flor de Cana 18, and it came very close. However, I'm not a huge fan of the Flor de Cana rums.
Relatively dry, with notes of spice, oak, almond, and caramel. Not bad for the money, but certainly not a 9 in my opinion.
This is by far my favorite lower end rum. I drink it neat and sometimes on the rocks. I did a blind taste test with friends and they couldn't believe it was only aged 4 years. This is a great rum for under $25.
