Ce rhum est riche d'arômes, complexe, sec et corsé avec des notes de chocolat noir, de caramel, de noix grillées et d’épices.

The smell is mainly vanilla. Taste is quite smooth, little bit spicy, considably dry and balanced. There is nothing that is too predominant in it. Nice present afterburn that leaves you with a nice aftertaste and a longing for the next sip. Not top of the line, but really enjoyable.

Smooth but not interesting enough to keep on my permanent shelf. Rated 7/10 for the full price ~$50 but recently grabbed a bottle on sale ~$38 during quarantine. I would bump rating to 8/10 at that price point.

I did a “vertical” tasting of the 4, 7, 12 & 18 simultaneously w/one of my sons. The results were exactly predictable and guided by the price points. It’s not unusual to have a lower aged rum best it’s elder “brother” but not here. The 4 & 7 are good for Cuba Libre’s while the 12 & 18 older brothers are better for sipping. Bottom line is that when I see the distillery promoting “ sustainably produced (Carbon Neutral & Fair Trade“ rather than the layers of flavors you know you’re not in the +8 range.

After paying the price I was expecting more. I did not enjoy as much as diplomatica reserva, which is a fair bit less expensive... but I do have a bit of a sweeter taste pallet.

A deeper colour similar to the 25 year but a nose more like the 12 year. This must be a column still rum with a light taste which doesn't excite me. A bit boozy but still smooth enough for sipping. Not my type of rum for $65 at LCBO.

Ron Flor de Caña 18 Centenario Legacy Edition I

Very excited to hear the cork pop on this one!
Quick review-
Beautiful color.
On the nose: molasses, tropical fruit, maple and alcohol
First sip: wow! Super smooth right out of the bottle on the tongue. I get cherry, maple, dried fruit and oak.
Long smooth burn after the finish with the flavors never quitting on you.
Not the most complex sipper of all time but that doesn't stop me from loving everything about this dram. Wow is this stuff good!

Na zdrowie! 🥃🥃✌

Lekker zacht, niet te diep van smaak en drinkt lekker weg

N- Opened up real well with sweet floral nectar, honey and vanilla coming thru, from an active good bourbon cask may be? Dusty wood, sweet spices, dried nutmeg and cinnamon. Developed to more boiled sweet herbs and earthy roots. (22/25)

P- Sauteed ripe banana with butter and caramel, jammy with pinch of citrus salts to balanced things up. Evolving honey-ed liquorice, dried pineapple, sweet pear, cherry and wood smokes. Still a 40-er, soft on palate with rich characters. (23/25)

F- Medium, subtle spices, more pink peppercorn. Well restrained sweetness with rounded mineral notes. (21/25)

Balanced:- A reasonably well 40er compromise on the overall strength. A skillful boxer but lacking the muscle to deliver the killing punch. (20/25)

Weighted Rate:- 86pt

Flor de cana 18 is a low sweetness, light rum with some coarseness to the aftertaste.
