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.
Bon rapport qualité prix, il est très doux. Un note de vanille et de chêne, le tout caramélisé. Par rapport au 12 et 7 ans, est qu’ il le prix? Pour les vrais connaisseurs oui, sinon le 12 fait l affaire.
Agréablement surpris par ce rhum.
Bon rapport qualité prix
Amazing product from Flor de Cana. This rum is very dry, well balanced and a bit spicy. Great sipping rum 9/10
Admittedly a little disappointed in this one. Not bad once it opens up for about 15min but, with all of the other choices available, I just don’t find myself reaching for this bottle very often.
The nose isn’t too harsh & after 2 sips notes of toffee, caramel & silky finish never disappoints. Would have it in a daquiri or even a mai tai but preferred is probably neat.
Compared 18 yr vs 12 yr. Both smell extremely similar, the 12 tastes a touch bit sweeter and is slightly more rough, the 18 tastes a little bit more buttery and slightly more smooth but they are very close. I like the 18 better than the 12. I like diplomatico exclusiva better than both.
I have been a fan of Flor de Cana for many years, however I had not previously tried their well aged products.
The presentation is very refined; the bottle is impressive, but not over stated, and the label is relatively simple, yet it provides all of the required information.
The pour is pretty much as it appears in the bottle, having a deep amber tone.
The nose is quite mellow and is not over powered by alcohol.
There was nothing particularly wrong with the first taste, it was just a bit disappointing because of the limited flavor palette. I sensed only molasses and oak.
The swallow left a light, lingering alcohol burn in the back of the throat.
Having read that this rum should be allowed to sit for 5 minutes and swirled in the interim, I did so.
This made no difference to the nose, however there did seem to be a mild increase in the flavour expression.
Overall this rum is smooth enough and easy to drink, however the limited flavour palette was a real disappointment. Given how good the less mature Flor de Cana rums are I was expecting more. At this point I think that I will be sticking with Gran Reserve 7 as the premium Flor de Cana in my liquor cabinet.
Supersoft on the tongue, week taste of walnuts, leaves you dissatisfied, maybe next time..
OK but nothing special! Nose and afterburn is nothing to write home about but taste is OK mostly because it’s not as sweet as many Spanish styled “Ron”,
One of the best rums I've ever had in all my travels.. planning a trip to Nicaragua just to be closer to this amazing rum
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.
Exceptionally average rum for me. A little sweet.
Een 7,5 is precies juist voor mij. Ik heb nog de oude fles en deze is al jaren niet meer aangeraakt. Vandaag weer geprobeerd, erg lekker kruidig maar zoals vaker genoemd mag de alcohol eerst wat vervliegen voor de smaak het best tot z’n recht komt.
This is a very smooth, easy drinking rum. Caramel, molasses, wood and slight vanilla flavours, but it's also very dry and will appeal to those who don't like the overly sweetened rums. It's a bit pricey, but worth it I think.
This is nice and smooth. Actually, can’t really fault it. More like a nine point five.
If you’re primarily a whiskey drinker looking for a rum that is less sweet than most but still offers great rum taste this rum is for you. Very smooth with subtle spice notes. Easy to drink and enjoy neat.
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.
I was very disappointed with this rum because it tastes very bitter.
I think I will empty it in the WC
Have great quality in their distilleries Worth the price even tough a little lite in Taste. Good good Rum.
Reasonably complex, but disappointing for the money. The burn is long lasting and offputting for an 18 year variety. I enjoy the 5 and 12 almost as much. The former is not as complex, but fine overall and affordable. The later is actually preferred to the 18 as it went down smoother.
nothing special. but nothing negative. just good rum. taste not too sweet
Od tohohle rumu jsem čekal hodně. První 18-ti letý rum, krásná láhev...no a pak to pití. Nebylo to špatné ale čekal jsem něco víc.
I used to be a scotch drinker and after trying this I am a 18 year Flor De Cana drinker. Best tasting aged spirit I have ever tried.
Es el primer ron Premium que probé en mi vida y le tengo un cariño especial. Por mucho tiempo pensaba que era el mejor que existe. No está mal, pero hay muchos rones 18 años que son mejores. Algo aburrido en color, nariz y boca. Un flor de Caña 7 años es incluso maa interesante.
Earthiness and fruit of the 12y turns into more woody notes and raisins, and almost blends together into praline aroma, but don't worry, it is without any noticeable additives. It is also dry like all of its range.
