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.
A lovely sipping rum... Not the best for flavour but decent to drink on ice
But I kept trying it and it got better. It sat on the shelf a few months, but it grew on me. I don't know if I will buy another bottle though...
A bit of sweetness and too much alcohol was my first impression. Followed by.. Nothing. Aftertaste non existant.
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.
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.
Flor de Caña Centenario 18 års er lidt skarp i smagen.
...but not my kind of rum. Cannot really put my finger on it... Perhaps I should give this rum one more chance..?
Delicate and smooth, a crime to drink any way but neat. Please savour!
To much smokey dry oak and alcohol taste. Not that sweet and short finnish as the flavours disappears to fast.
Je m'attendais a beaucoup mieux avec un 18 ans, peu de longueur en bouche.
le final est mieux que sur le 12 ans, mais quand même trop sec et "raide" pour moi.
superb rum really nice balanced nice and smooth rum
Repéré par les récompenses du festival de miami. Grosse déception. Robuste, même trop à mon goût. Les saveurs ont du mal à s'exprimer face a la force de l'alcool. Je n'en reprendrais pas.
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 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.
smooth. Good wood and light flavor with a hint of caramel finishing spicy and semi-"hot".
Sugar: 0 gpl. Smooth rum with Oak flavors, a bit of smoke and molasses. Not overly sweet and a bit sharp at first but it mellows quite nicely. Bit of harshness on the back end. If you are going to purchase one of the available Flor De Cana rums, then make it this one. It's not available in Ontario, but at $35 bottle at some duty free ports in the Caribbean, it is a great deal. It will set you back more in the USA.
A good rum for a modest price. I'm a big fan of the Flor de Cana family and this one does not disappoint. Great flavors and easy to sip.
Fles: 25cl tube
Smaak: zacht, droog,.zoetig tabak, karamel
Nasmaak: droog. karamel, kruiden.
Wel een lekker rummetje, maar niet veel beter dan de 12 jaar.
Beautiful golden color. It is very oaky with minimal sweetness. Not much afterburn. Short finish as the flVor disappears quickly from the mouth. I personally like rums with a little more sweetness. Not a bad rum but not on my upper tier and I am glad it was a present.
Well balanced scents of oak and molasses. A pleasure to sip straight up.
If you liked the 12 don't bother getting this. It is drier and not as well balanced. It is smooth and not as sweet rum, you get strong taste of smokey oak flavours.
Ifyou're a whisky lover starting to have an interest in rum then this is a rum you will like. Actually the whole range of this brand is a slow and steady graduation into the world of rum. It is not a bad bench mark either really.
Obviously even better then the 12yrs old one, more depth,even less afterburn,rich aromas. Sadly is quite pricey but its woth every cent
i was expecting great things from this but it just didn't do it for me. I haven't given up on it yet though....
Nose: Not much
Feel: Smooth. Almost no burn
Taste: Really dry and oaky. I'm really enjoying finding this after going though some overly sweat duds. Subtle flavours on the back end too. Rind and molasses but not too strong.
Presentation: I have it in the new bottle which I like much more than the old one.
Cost: 37USD duty free.
