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.
I'll give this Flor de Cana a 10 just because from all of the rums that I have tried this one so far has been my favorite, $50 for a bottle but is so worth it, you can have the whole bottle in one night and I'll guarantee you next morning you will feel like you didnt even drink the night before.
Amazing Rum for Zipping. Smooth and goes down easy. What a Rum!
Received this as a Xmas gift and was nothing short of ecstatic to uncork it. I let it breathe for a while and had it on the rocks. Extremely smooth all the way down. Leaves a nice warm feeling down in your belly and an amazing flavor pallette in your mouth.
try this room. of you like amber rums this one will impress you. smooth from start to finish. excellent value. worth every penny
de color caramelo con un sabor de lo mejor que he probado, no dudo en recomendarlo, ya que du sabor no es invasivo lo que asegura una celebración excelente
I just tried FdC18 years and it is a really good rum, nice color, smell and well balanced. I had the chance to visit Flor de Caña factory and I came to know that all Flor de Caña rums are aged the amount of years marked in the bottle and that they grow and process it's own sugar cane which enhance the quality of the production process. I am giving them a 10 because is the only rum that I have tried that not use the solera process, so I do not consider it fair to compare rums with different aging process.
This is an excellent rum for the price range. Too good and too expensive to waste as a mixer, but not so expensive that I couldn't share. This is my go-to for an affordable sipping rum (straight or on the rocks), and my go-to suggestion for people wanting to break in to sipping rums.
My absolute favorite. The only rum I thoroughly enjoy neat. No need for mixers, ice or even stones. Just beautiful, delicious, complex, and VERY smooth rum.
Really smooth and tasty! One of my all time favourites
Bevo Rum da qualche anno e, soprattutto all'inizio, preferico di gran lunga i Rum di tipologia spagnola.
Beh, adesso posso dire che c'e' un prima del Flor de Cana 18 ed un dopo.
Prima come detto preferivo l'altra tipologia di Rum, poi con il FDC 18 e' stato amore al primo bicchiare.
Colore decisamente ambrato, al naso ha sentori alcolici mischiati alla cioccolata, nel palato ha un iniziale gusto tendenzialmente secco con cioccolata e la dolcezza del caramello, il gusto di cioccolata rimane ma ha un sentore affumicato.
Io lo adoro!
Its amazing, a must try!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You buy now!!!!
This is some of the best rum that I have ever had. They also make a 25 year old rum that is better. This rum is fine by itself and is very smooth.
Flor de Caña Nicaraguan Rum 18 years is one of my favorite rums to sip on. The flavor and aroma are truly exquisite. It tastes amazing straight, on the rocks, or mixed in drinks like coke and a splash of lime juice.
Definitely exquisite !!!
I used to be a scotch drinker and after trying this I am a 18 year Flor De Cana drinker. Best tasting aged spirit I have ever tried.
Vey smooth in palate and a lot of aromas in nose... Super rum... TIP: Must try Flor de Caña 25 yrs!
Finally bought a FdC18 while in Nova Scotia last week and I'm glad to have finally discovered this Rum. Having read the pros and cons about this offering, I poured myself a glass and let it sit for 10 minutes (as per "mistercoughy" recommendation) and added a couple drops of water.
Appearance: Dark Amber
Nose: Molasses and Oak
Palate: Toffee, Caramel and Vanilla
This rum is very smooth and well balanced and produces absolutely no burn in the throat. A real treat!
Geschmacklich dominieren bei diesem Rum eine aromatische Mischung aus Bitterschokolade, gerösteten Nüssen und Gewürzaromen. Der Abgang ist lang mit Eichen- und Karamellnoten.
Letting it breath for a few minutes... and sip it up slowly... very good dry rum. I had it first on Corn Island, Nicaragua... perfect combo..
Big surprise. Neves imagine this rum coupé be that gregas. It is Not expensive, really Smooth. Sweet rum.
La bouteille n est plus la même mais le rhum lui est toujours aussi somptueux!
Un nez complexe, une mise en bouche où une multitude d arômes explosent (vanille, bois, fleurs...) et une longueur très intéressante.
Un vrai 18 ans d'âge, pas de solera et franchement ça se sent !
A recommander vivement, une de mes plus belles trouvailles
I like rum a lot, but I have never wanted to drink it straight. I prefer it in a (diet) Cuba libre. This rum is the smoothest rum that I have ever tasted.
Lately I've been ordering a different bottle every couple of weeks and this one was worth the wait! A great sipping rum, this one is very smooth with rich flavor.
