A sugar-free 18-year old, ultra premium rum that is sustainably produced (Carbon Neutral & Fair Trade certified). From a 5th generation family estate, it is naturally aged without artificial ingredients, distilled 100% with renewable energy and KOSHER certified. A full-bodied rum with a long and smooth finish that lingers in the palate. Best enjoyed neat or on a rock, with a peel of orange.
Recommendable to most
Recently tried the 12 year old ....I was VERY impressed with the rum they produce....went to the LCBO website to see what else they had ...up pops the 18 year old for 50 $....5 more than the 12 .....well I had to go for it ....WOW!...soooooo smooooooooth .....gone in just over a week ....went back for more .....LCBO ..in their infinite wisdom ...DELISTED this particular age , with no explanation ....so, I am going with my original tasting ..and say , YES , I ENJOYED it..!!....
A deep amber rum with woody notes. There is no sweetness to it, but it is not as dry as a Jamaican rum. Decent sipper but not something to brag about. An excelent replacement for any whiskey.
I found it an honest rum, sufficiently good but nothing special. It's quite smooth, but some extra air might help before drinking.
It's exterior and convenience are the best. A little heavy from long aging in barrel. Over time, the taste of strong vanilla and oak is joined by orange. Obviously would buy it if the cost like AE12.
Lesson learned. Flor de Caña 7... solid. Flor de Caña 12... great. Therefore 18 has to be exceptional, right? Not so much.
Nose - Leather, Tobacco, Nuts, Caramel
Palate - Bitter (!), Vanilla, Hazelnut
This rum keeps you honest. It stops one from waxing poetry while peeking at the price and the year designation. My bottle is almost empty because I make everyone taste it so they can realize they like less expensive, less esteemed rums better.
I finally got to try some. It’s got a lot going for it, it’s in the drier side for those that don’t like sweeter rums, has unique flavors. But it has to mellow and breathe in the glass more as others have mentioned. Sometimes I’m a little too impatient to wait for it. In my opinion, for the price; I shouldn’t have to do that.
Toffee, Caramel, Dark Chocolate, hazlenuts and a little touch of tobacco give a sweet but not overly cloying nose.
"It’s not overly sweet and retains a dryness which is particularly good on the finish."
