Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
The first sip is definitely over powered by the alcohol. But as suggested in another review, let it sit a bit and then try it. Oh my! I prefer an ice cube to help open the rum . Wonderful Oak, butterscotch and spice. So yum!
Compared to Flor de Cana 12yo this is not worth an extra money.
Dit moet je proeven. Zo zacht. En lekker. Jammie!!
I'm not sure if anyone else has got this but i get a very nice hint of coconut flavour in this rum. This makes it pretty unique for me and it is also quite smooth. I think i could rate this a bit higher but i need to drink more to edit my rating since i have only tried a small amount. Definitely a decent rum for sure.
Dry, not a big nose or after taste, but pleasant enough
It is quite burning with alcohol, too much for 18 yo imho.
This is a fine rum. But I judge most rums by my standby, Bacardi 8, which I think is the best combination of taste, smoothness and price. Flor de Cana 18 year is equal, maybe a bit better, in smoothness than the Bacardi 8, but it's almost double the price. I look for some significant improvement at that price and I didn't get it. At the same price I probably prefer the Flor de Cana 18
After buying this.... and being so excited to come back home and taste with my Dad and my wife...
We tried Neat.. . YUCK
we tried on ice... YUCK
we tried to return it to the store... SUCCESS
A deeper colour similar to the 25 year but a nose more like the 12 year. This must be a column still rum with a light taste which doesn't excite me. A bit boozy but still smooth enough for sipping. Not my type of rum for $65 at LCBO.
Almost too smooth. I won't say it is bad, but it is just not very deep. Basically a more smooth version of the 7 yr.
Velké překvapení, svou jemnou chutí mi připomněl rumy od Olivera, velmi chutný
It is one of my top 10 .. very good taste ... no hangover guaranteed high quality ... cheerful nights!! Enjoy
I felt like this one wasn’t as aged as it claimed. Definitely expected more.
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.
