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 con gran sabor a maderas, medianamente dulce. Buen ron para tomarlo en ocasiones especiales.
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.
Medium dry sipper, smooth with a very slight burn.
Great depths in colors with an oaky / spicy after burn! Enjoy neat and maximize your rum experience!
Ich hätte nicht gedacht, er für diesen Preis so gut ist. Rund aber nicht zu mild. Da merkt man schon was man trinkt.
It is a little bit too strong for a 18 years one, nice in the nose but the alcohol taste is too big for me, not really smooth.
Very sweet nose. Smooth flavour and a pleasant amount of alcohol.
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.
Slet ikke tosset.
God og behagelig eftersmag.
Så meget bedre end 12 års.
I sampled this rum neat, and while I took my time to enjoy it, there was less there than I'd hoped. It is indeed very smooth, as you'd expect from a rug with this much aging. But I sensed mostly sugar-y aromas in the nose, and similarly on the palette. I'd hoped for more flavor components. It's got a nice smooth finish, too, if a bit too hot for a rum this age. Overall, though, not up there with my favorites.
Deeply tasty and nice rum. Molasses and smooth with a bite at the end.
A return to sweeter side after the 12 year, I really enjoyed this fine rum. Smooth, flavorful, and well made.
This one seems to polarize oppinions. To me it is actually quite good, though a bit dry. I prefer my rum to be a bit sweeter than this one. Though I don't agree with those who think that the 12 years version is better.
