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.
Vey smooth in palate and a lot of aromas in nose... Super rum... TIP: Must try Flor de Caña 25 yrs!
Great rum to drink neat. Nice finish. Has a smooth finish.
Got this for drinking a 150 rum in the Kill Devil Explorers Club. One of my favorites. Sweet, toffee just the right amount of heat.
I love the Flor de Cana line of rums and the 18 year is exceptionally good.
For you rum lovers, you won't be disappointed. No harsh flavor with limited heat going down.
Complex characteristics with a nice contrast of Oakiness and sweetness made for sipping neat.
I would go with Flor de Cana's younger siblings for mixing with a less expensive price tag.
Fruity taste, alcohol odour both on nose and the palate. Workers in the distillery were literally dying to give you this product (apparently with some kind of a kidney disease). But still... Its OK at best.
Something to write home to mom about. Arrrrgggg...
...guter Rum auch wenn er nicht zu meinen "alltime favorites" gehört.
Цвет - Чёрный чай.
Аромат - Довольно сдержанный, пряная древесина, тростник, травяные нотки, мята, эвкалипт, индийские благовония.
Вкус - Много дерева, умеренной сладости, орехи, капучино, тростник.
Послевкусие - Продолжение вкуса, слегка вяжущее.
Вывод - Намного лучше 12-летки, уже не коктейльный/закусочный вариант, вполне идёт в чистом виде, но весьма простенько, без претензий
Tried first the 12 yo which is quite good but this 18 yo is from other level. Not too sweet (just like I like it) balanced and tastes and feels really aged. On top of it, the price is fair.
I have over 125 Rums.
The Flor 12 YO and especially this 18 YO, are in my top ten.
Hope to be able to try and buy the 23 YO.
Guter Geschmack, eher fruchtig aber alles in allem etwas wenig.
After trying the 7 year and determining it could only be a mixer with coke, tried this at my local Brazilian Steakhouse and I was impressed.
Great rum. One of my favorites. Very clean and smooth but not much character
Aroma of oak, leather and just a touch of sweetness in the alcohol nose. Fairly dry with just a hint of sweetnes upfront. Finishes dry and oaky. Firm oak with hints of char and vanilla. Warming approaching hot but not unpleasant. Long numbing finish. A little breathing really opens this one up. As it sits more comes out. Second tasting is even better. If you like sweet then this may not be for you as it's pretty dry and oaky. Good sipper, some bourbon-like hints. I like it more each time I have it.
I like this rum very much.
It's has gentle sweetness with vanilla caramel and chocolate flavor coverd by nuts oil.
Very smooth and rich, and creamy.
Really enjoyed this one a lot. Had a lot of molasses caramel flavors with a hint of sweetness like a banana almost. Had a harsh hit at first, not too harsh though, but it fades fast into a smooth mix of other flavors I'm not sure I'm experienced enough to even pick out.
I'd definitely get this one again. Great all by itself and occasionally maybe an ice cube or two to get a little chill to it.
Some what bitter molasses/vanilla notes with slight burn. OAK. I prefer Zara Master 21 for my middle of the taste road rum.
This is not the best from Flor de Caña. It's too sweet. Won't buy a new bottle, but I will enjoy the rest of the bottle.
From the classy bootle, to its golden colour this is a “sippers delight”. Super smooth, vanilla, caramel, oak, a gentle burn , what’s not to like.
Reasonably priced, which should put it on most serious rum drinkers shelf’s. Definitely a rum to savour.
The aroma is deep and pleasing with just a bite at the back of your throat sitting the stage for a most enjoyable sip. Complex yet smooth this is a great sipper where the taste lingers in a pleasant way. This one stays in my stocking bar.
This is a rum that tastes better if it sits for a couple minutes. Smooth and easy sipping rum
A solid sipper, but bit raw and needs ice. Too thick to my taste.
