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.
Yeah it's sweet but I kinda like em that way. Very tasty and smooth.
Big surprise. Neves imagine this rum coupé be that gregas. It is Not expensive, really Smooth. Sweet rum.
Deeply tasty and nice rum. Molasses and smooth with a bite at the end.
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!
the colour is goldy.. the flavour will keep in your mouth and you have a taste of fruits
4 once,One ice cube... Let it stand 5-10 minutes...the taste is very rich. no after bite.
Obviously even better then the 12yrs old one, more depth,even less afterburn,rich aromas. Sadly is quite pricey but its woth every cent
This is a very smooth, easy drinking rum. Caramel, molasses, wood and slight vanilla flavours, but it's also very dry and will appeal to those who don't like the overly sweetened rums. It's a bit pricey, but worth it I think.
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.
I have over 125 Rums.
The Flor 12 YO and especially this 18 YO, are in my top ten.
Hope to be able to try and buy the 23 YO.
A nice top shelf rum. Sweet and vanilla stands out. Best in brandy sniffer. Get it a bit warm for more aromas. Not ice!
Meets or exceeds my gold-standard El Dorado 15, with the added benefit of being slightly less syrupy/mollassesy (sp?). A pricey bottle to be kept aside for special guests (or REALLY bad days) only.
A return to sweeter side after the 12 year, I really enjoyed this fine rum. Smooth, flavorful, and well made.
I'm on my third bottle since I've moved to Costa Rica a month ago. This is a great rum to sip with a cigar it is not a 10 merely due to comparison to it's 25 year counterpart. It is not as smooth as the 25 but not as spicy as the 12th. It has a very Carmalee taste with a very nice finish. For the price it is very difficult to beat.
Delicate and smooth, a crime to drink any way but neat. Please savour!
superb rum really nice balanced nice and smooth rum
Tried first the 12 yo which is quite good but this 18 yo is from other level. Not too sweet (just like I like it) balanced and tastes and feels really aged. On top of it, the price is fair.
this one i love. good price and very good rum. dry rum.
all the things you can image of (dry molasses) rum is in here. fruity notes, caramel (hint of), vanilla (hint of), a light body for easy moments (thats great). smooth. mild. long aftertaste. wooden elements in the back. great stuff!
Dark Brown, Amber, Golden
Kind of sweet (not so much as other rums), Smooth (can't smell any alcohol), woody, some honey, vanilla, chocolate, fruits.
so smooth, bit of sweet at the begin, bit bitter ending, definitive wood, vanilla, spicy, unctuous, dense, matted, delicious.
Well balanced scents of oak and molasses. A pleasure to sip straight up.
For me, a wonderful experience, i love this rum, what a smooth and wel balanced rum, still not difficult to drink, great rum, i love it.
Medium dry sipper, smooth with a very slight burn.
Smooth, highly aromatic, great for sipping. At the same time, its marketing is either almost invisible or just non-existent. Kind of a shy brand. You have to guess by yourself what does it stand for.
A deep gold color visually exhibits what your taste buds are about to experience. Without disappointment, it delivers a rich and smooth "old world" mixture of molasses, oak, butterscotch, spirits and very subtle hints of aged bourbon. Attack this experience with a snifter to maximize your intake of the fine aroma, as it would be sinful to even think of having a mix or cola in the same room.
