A sugar-free 18-year old, ultra premium rum that is sustainably produced (Carbon Neutral & Fair Trade certified). From a 5th generation family estate, it is naturally aged without artificial ingredients, distilled 100% with renewable energy and KOSHER certified. A full-bodied rum with a long and smooth finish that lingers in the palate. Best enjoyed neat or on a rock, with a peel of orange.
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.
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.
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.
This is an excellent rum for the price range. Too good and too expensive to waste as a mixer, but not so expensive that I couldn't share. This is my go-to for an affordable sipping rum (straight or on the rocks), and my go-to suggestion for people wanting to break in to sipping rums.
Quite a winner. Medium spice with oak. Slightly sweet. Good amount of oil lasts in the long finish. Could envision seasoned rum veterans really liking this one.
Very smooth rum. A coupe issues though:
1) Comes with a plastic screw cap instead of a cork like most of the other higher-priced rums
2) Taste has a little too much of an oak flavor - I'd prefer if some of the other flavors would be more dominant. I probably won't buy another bottle of this.
A step higher from the 12yrs old. A better finish staying longer in the mouth, the balance between the oak and the spice is great.
A good value for money.
My absolute favorite. The only rum I thoroughly enjoy neat. No need for mixers, ice or even stones. Just beautiful, delicious, complex, and VERY smooth rum.
Dark Amber with slight red hue. Legs are thin and dissapate quickly. Nose of brown sugar, caramel, & white chocolate. The first thing I notice as I tase this rum is the smoothness. Slightly dry with subtle oak and maple syrup flavors. A hint of chocolate on the finish. The finish fades rather quickly. A great rum to share with friends.
