Flor de Caña 18-Year Centenario Gold Rum is produced in Chichigalpa, Nicaragua. The rum is crafted using column stills and is then aged for 18 years.
The 18-year variety is the oldest rum produced by Flor de Caña, a brand owned by Grupo Pellas and founded in 1890 Francisco Alfredo Pellas. A 5th generatino Pellas family member still runs the company today.
Gentle nose. Just a bit of alcohol. Caramel and cloves on the tongue and a little lingering aftertaste. Quite smooth.
Fast ideal - nur sein kleiner Bruder (Flor Cana 12 Years) ist besser
Solid rum, a bit harsh for 18yo. A bit sweet, and a pretty solid taste.
Read lots of glowing reviews on this one. It's good, but a little harsh neat. Needs an ice cube. I actually prefer the 12 year.
For a 18yrs old claim, there are plenty other 10-12-15yrs old better quality and fairly priced.
Ikke så kraftig duft, måske lidt fad og karamel. Meget smag af fad, hvor man efter et par tåre får smag af lidt karamel. Ikke super interessant eftersmag. Ikke en dårlig rom, men heller ikke en, der skal have plads i barskabet. Virker som en dyrere udgave af Barcelo imperial.
I am sipping this as I write. It is a nice smooth rum for sure. Not overly anything, and I find the taste somewhat indistinct for a higher tier offering in the Flor de Cana line. Still it is very easy to drink and I can't see anyone, even those that prefer other styles, not liking it.
Faller inte alls mig på läppen obetydlig sötma ren spitsmak o inte alls behaglig att dricka
This is a Rum that's very smooth and not extremely sweet. I love smoother spirits and this rum seems to get more smooth with each sip. The slight spiciness gives it a great finish.
To start, leave bottle open for a bit to let breathe. Has a nice dry caramely aroma. Very smooth, dry, little burn. Flavor is nice, dry, caramel, but not sweet. Great for sipping, on rocks it flows effortlessly down the throat. Almost too smooth, when mixing w ginger beer or coke hides in background. Use as sipper.
Nice on the nose. Vanilla, butterscotch. Not a lot on flavor. Very dry.
There is little on the nose and the taste is quite dry with an alcoholic kick. Certainly lots of oak. It's very full-bodied and, although it is initially dry on the tongue, it has a spicey and slightly sweet after-taste. All this certainly makes it well balanced, but for dry rums with a bit of depth, I prefer La Hechicera - which is also about £10 a bottle cheaper.
Yeah it's sweet but I kinda like em that way. Very tasty and smooth.
Bit to dry for me. Expected more of the 18 years of riping.
Nice sipping rum but there are much better for the price.
This is pretty much my favorite rum when I want to spend some money. There’s no added sugar so it’s not syrupy. The balance of flavor and aroma are perfectly balanced. I think this is a good age for any rum. I find once they get older they all start tasting like a sugary sweet mess.
I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this rum. I don't have anything wonderful to say about it either. If you've had any of the younger Flor de Cana's, imagine somethings that just feels older and overall better, and that is exactly what you get. This rum bothers me a little though, because it is really good, but it doesn't actually do anything. It's great and boring. I had it just three days ago, and all I can remember is that I really liked it; but no specifics of any kind...
I was walking through the E terminal of the Atlanta airport and they were offering samples.
This is a ice smooth dipping rum
This is a lovely rum, distinguished by its sweet molasses nose. Don't let that fool you, though. The taste is dry and buttery.
El problema es que aunque más suave que el 12 años y con más dulzor ni es lo bastante suave ni tiene el carácter que me gusta y si no recuerdo mal la última botella que compre en su estuche me salió en treinta y tantos €.....A mi parecer los tengo más de mi agrado por menos dinero.
Excellent quality Nicaraguan. Toffee, caramel and red fruits, good sweetness without added sweeteners.
Vey smooth in palate and a lot of aromas in nose... Super rum... TIP: Must try Flor de Caña 25 yrs!
Great rum to drink neat. Nice finish. Has a smooth finish.
