Easily consumable in a bind
Bought on discount at Asda supermarket at £15 so thought it was worth a try and got to say compared to captain Morgan and lambs rum etc its a winner with a mixer, being not as sweet and a more subtle flavour its even just passable neat for me.
Have soft spot for Flor de Caña so I am probably overrating this rum but I really like it. It’s definitely better for mixing than drinking neat but still good value for money esp. if you can get it on sale.
I'm writing this from memory. Didn't really enjoy it, I remember bit being lightly funky with a hint of molasses, but had a bitter tanin flavour. It took forever for me to drink this stuff as I wasnt keen, ended up mixing it away. I'd be interested in trying the more premium versions maybe the 12 year. But I'm apprehensive.
You might like it, but not for me
This is where the FdC rums begin their polishing for the palate, the 5 year gets a good dose of benefits from aging in the barrel a year more than their filtered lights. That classic Spanish style flavor is present, a touch sweet and woody, and the body is significantly more substantial as a result. It’s still in that in between zone, where it’s better mixed than sipped, but it fully qualifies for cocktails requiring an aged Spanish rum that won’t break the bank. With a little ice, it’s an ok sipper, but the 7 year feels like the real sweet spot, neat or on the rocks.
Not a bad one in my opinion. Smooth. Not very outspoken, but enjoyable. Light. Easy to sip. Some tones of sweet spices. Apparently my taste differs from the crowd. This was no bad buy at all.
This rum was pleasant to mix with cola or ginger beer but I didn't enjoy drinking it on its own. I would buy it again to mix with but would look for a different rum to enjoy straight from the bottle.
