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.
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.
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!
Smooth yet not too sweet. Shows itself best when simply served on ice. Not a big difference from the 12 year so not worth the increased price.
A return to sweeter side after the 12 year, I really enjoyed this fine rum. Smooth, flavorful, and well made.
Deeply tasty and nice rum. Molasses and smooth with a bite at the end.
This is pretty much my favorite rum when I want to spend some money. There’s no added sugar so it’s not syrupy. The balance of flavor and aroma are perfectly balanced. I think this is a good age for any rum. I find once they get older they all start tasting like a sugary sweet mess.
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.
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.
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
looks good in the glass and tastes god too. definitely worth it for the price.
25 year is one of the most expensive rum. I think I will not buy it. But Flor de Caña 18 is a very good rum at a good price for a premium.
C est un bon rhum sucre avec des notes de tabac de cuir sur un fond vanille.mais pour moi il manque de puissance et un peu plus de complexite.un bon rapport qualite prix toutefois.pour 36 e il vaut le coup.note 7.9.
Very sweet nose. Smooth flavour and a pleasant amount of alcohol.
Picked this up since it was one of the better rated rums in the ~$50 price range and I have no regrets. It has a nice spiciness to it which I like, without being too dry. Would recommend.
A tad more sweet than the twelve year, but not overly so. I like this rum quite a bit!
A good taste for straight up rum, but needs ice for better taste
Slet ikke tosset.
God og behagelig eftersmag.
Så meget bedre end 12 års.
It's hard to rate this rum as my likeness to it seems to vary. On some days I think it's fantastic and on other days it's just good. Always pleasing though!
A very nice rum, but not so much different that the 12 years.
It has a soft, smokey oak, dry taste.
A little deeper, richer and more complex than 12 years.
A must have for my collection.
A rum that has it all. Dark brown in colour, A nice scent, sweet, wood and all come together really well. A smooth and well balanced rum wich every rum lover must have tried at least once in his live. Trust me,, go out and buy a bottle!
Enjoyed this rum straight in a small glass. Didn't find a complex profile to the rum but certainly a good sipper to try on someone that isn't as accustomed to drinking rum without mix. Smooth, very little to no burn.
That version 18 is complex but is still accessible. Caramel notes, butterscotch , honey and toast. The oak is present but does not take over the pastry notes and orange zest. Very round and smooth with hints of vanilla on the end with the oak that still does not leave us. Very nice job
Klasické ostrejšie centario od ktorého som čakal viac. Nevýrazná korenista chuť.
Very nice indeed; easy to drink neat.
smells of smoke and oak but balanced nicely.
Relatively inexpensive for an 18 year old.
If they had this in Ontario; I would drink it all the time.
But since I had to travel to Quebec to get it; it will probably be brought out just for special occasions.
