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.
Es un ron añejo que se disfruta más con coca-cola. Con el añejamiento no logra perder el sabor fuerte del alcohol pero al mismo tiempo se aprecian sabores a madera. Es un ron seco.
Decent nose. Wooden (oak?), round taste, the tail is too alcoholic.
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.
En ok rom, som med årene er blevet bedre. Velafbalanceret og meget mild.
Great rum. One of my favorites. Very clean and smooth but not much character
I have been a fan of Flor de Cana for many years, however I had not previously tried their well aged products.
The presentation is very refined; the bottle is impressive, but not over stated, and the label is relatively simple, yet it provides all of the required information.
The pour is pretty much as it appears in the bottle, having a deep amber tone.
The nose is quite mellow and is not over powered by alcohol.
There was nothing particularly wrong with the first taste, it was just a bit disappointing because of the limited flavor palette. I sensed only molasses and oak.
The swallow left a light, lingering alcohol burn in the back of the throat.
Having read that this rum should be allowed to sit for 5 minutes and swirled in the interim, I did so.
This made no difference to the nose, however there did seem to be a mild increase in the flavour expression.
Overall this rum is smooth enough and easy to drink, however the limited flavour palette was a real disappointment. Given how good the less mature Flor de Cana rums are I was expecting more. At this point I think that I will be sticking with Gran Reserve 7 as the premium Flor de Cana in my liquor cabinet.
Hard to say much about this one. Enjoyed drinking but nothing exciting about it. Vaguely comparable to the Plantation 20th anniversary but not as interesting. The Plantation I'll be buying a bottle of soon. This I won't be.
Aromatic nose with l vapor of alcohol. Mouth is smooth. Tail is progressively strong and flavourful.
I actually enjoy Flor de Cana's 12 year old rum over their 18. Price being only part of the equation!
A little dissapointed with that one. Lack of complexity
Well balanced! A great option for the right price.
Nice strong tasting rum. Strong but easy to drink pure or on the rocks. I let the rum sit in the glass so the alcohol taste gets a little less stong
This baby is another staple in my liquor cabinet. Definitely a fantastic rum.
Very smooth and nice bit the flavor was too flat for me.
Its not peaty but it is smoky. Not sweet at all especially for a rum. Smooth finish. When I go for a rum I prefer something a little sweeter but with that being said this stuff isn't bad. It just depends on what you are looking for. Its definitely a nice change of pace to have in the collection.
this is a very good option for having people over you get a good quality great tasting rum for a decent price and you wont be offended if somebody decides to mix it with coke!
A solid sipper, but bit raw and needs ice. Too thick to my taste.

Very excited to hear the cork pop on this one!
On the nose: molasses, tropical fruit, maple and alcohol
First sip: wow! Super smooth right out of the bottle on the tongue. I get cherry, maple, dried fruit and oak.
Long smooth burn after the finish with the flavors never quitting on you.
Not the most complex sipper of all time but that doesn't stop me from loving everything about this dram. Wow is this stuff good!
Na zdrowie! 🥃🥃✌
Alkohol: 40 %
Aroma: Vůně je, na můj vkus, příliš zastřená a nevýrazná. Jemně je cítit kůže, rozinky, skořice a hřebíček. Škoda, že je aroma tak utlumené. (83 b)
Chuť: Suchá chuť, jemnost. Čokoláda, exotické těžší dřevo, krémově čokoládová dochuť. (83 b)
Shrnutí: Pro mě trochu nudný rum, který dopadl obdobně, jako před lety jeho dvanáctiletý bratříček. Ale věřím, že některým bude zrovna tenhle decentní styl vyhovovat. Ochutnán v českolipském baru Egypt, kde je nabídka čítající více než 60 druhů rumů.
I enjoy this as an old fashioned. Nice relaxing drink
From the classy bootle, to its golden colour this is a “sippers delight”. Super smooth, vanilla, caramel, oak, a gentle burn , what’s not to like.
Reasonably priced, which should put it on most serious rum drinkers shelf’s. Definitely a rum to savour.
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.
This is not the best from Flor de Caña. It's too sweet. Won't buy a new bottle, but I will enjoy the rest of the bottle.
