Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
A friend bought me a bottle from Niccaragua when she was on vacation and the best rum i ever drank
This is the best rum I've ever had, my brother brought it back from Niquagua, so so good.
I forgot all about this one made by Flor de Cana until I saw it on the shelf next the 7 year and 12 year old. For only $21, I considered it worth the try, but have not had much luck with their 4 year Oro Anejo or their 18 year. Their 7 year is still my favorite up to this point, so I compared this one, the 7 year, and 12 year side by side in Glencairn glasses. All three were allowed to breathe for 30 minutes.
This one is clearly the palest in color between all three, almost like a light orange and yellow. As for the darker colors on the other two, I could not tell them apart. The breathing allowed the aroma to all but dissipate on all three. The taste on this one is quite smooth with natural sweetness. The after taste is wonderful oak that reminds me of Don Q 2005 Single Barrel. Comparing this one to their 7 year made me place this one even better than my old favorite from them. This one is smoother by far. I am glad that I came across it today!
New label for a rm thats been around for a while. Hint of carmel, medium legs, light amber colour. Carried in most BCLCB stores.
Hey let’s be honest if you love sipping rum this one might not make your short list but this entry level rum from the Flor De Cana group hits it out of the park for being an honest low budget smooth rum easy mixed without crying and great taste to boot
I could drink this one all day just like I like it 1 shot rum 2 shots coke 2 shots water with 2-3 cubes
Two thumbs up 👍
Of course, FDC 12 is better thank this 5 year. However, this has almost same aroma and taste, a little thin. Not bad.
Perhaps the best value out there in a reasonably aged rum for a good price.
Reasonable rum overall. Will work with mixers, or over rocks, etc. Far superior to other options in the same class. Not overly complex, but a rock or two mellow it out and removes any burn. I've had the 7 as well and didn't feel the need to go that route. (albeit not side by side)
Very nice and smooth for daily drinks
One of my favorite brands. Nothing wrong with this one, but I like the older ones better as they have more taste
This is a cheap rum but it's fairly good. You can sip it with some ice. But add coke and you'll have a nice drink.
Aroma: alcohol, barrel, tobacco, honey, flowers, vanilla. But the first sharpness spoils the impression.
Taste: enveloping, bitter, not suitable for sipping.
Aftertaste is pleasant even sweet. There is a limitation of the desire to drink a lot - stomach hard from the roughness of rum.
It's alright but for 15 quid wasn't expecting much but it's sound with a mixer I'll probably have it again
Spend the extra couple dollars and get the seven year
Bit too much of a burn to this but perfectly good in a mixer.
Some buttery sweetness and mild vanilla tones are present but on its own this is just not something I'd enjoy straight-up, myself, but mixed with Sprite or 7-Up, and some OJ, pineapple juice or 5-Alive, and yup, I'm on-board. ( I wouldn't turn it away! )
Para el precio resulta un buen ron, sin embargo prefiero comprar el de 4 años que a mí gusto, es mejor. Es levemente dulce y raspa lo normal al pasar. Para tomarlo mezclado.
I thought there would be more. Just need to mix with coke.
A ok rum that really makes decent cocktails. Has a bit of a harsh alcohol kick on its own. Makes a perfect Dark n stormy though.
A pleasant rum best served with a mixer, in my case, Fever Tree ginger beer. It is drinkable as a sipping rum, not being too fiery and a lot better than the supermarket favourites.
A bit dry with a warm, semi-sweet vanilla finish. Caramelized sugar and wood flavors play on the palate. Ends up being a great mixing rum, as dry styles tend to be the best when it comes to mixing with fruits (that, and overproof white rums).
I like this Rum, it is good quality for the price. Very smooth feel to it initially, then a bit fiery aftertaste, but not in a bad way. Not overly sweet like a lot of Rums can be . Hints of dark chocolate, nothing else major going on. It is not overly exciting, but it certainly does not disappoint either. I have been sipping it neat and it tastes fine.
This is a perfect "get me through the week" rum. Very nice over lots of ice.
Este ron de 5 años de añejamiento, es bueno para tomarse con Coca-Cola, tiene gran sabor a madera y para disfrutar un momento con los amigos. Garantiza dolor de cabeza
Decent bottle of rum. Semi smooth but with a bit of sour after notes. Better in cola, and surprisingly enough, gets better as the night wears on. Not something I reach for to impress someone, but fills the need in a pinch.
