Much better than aldi Old Hopking. Reasonable to drink neat. Very good with a mixer. Excellent quality for the price. Smokey and smooth taste. Would definitely buy again.

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)

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.

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 👍

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.

After trying the FdC-7 I gave the FdC-12 a go and concluded that I would rather check out the FdC-5 than the 18 so her I am.

On the nose it is very easy to recognize the typical FdC-aroma; at first a bit high on alcohol followed by a variety of spices, fudge, orange peel, vanilla, burnt sugar. It is a tad lighter than the 7 and 12 expressions but clearly related. Apart from the, at first, strong alcohol smell the scents are more friendly than with the 7 and very much more sparkling than with the 12.

On the palate the whole rum is lighter and more vivid than the 7; less mature but in better balance and an easy and entertaining sipper yet a little less complex. The 12 has more flavours and depth, sure, but drinks like a dead product if you get that; it is very boring after a few sips. The 5 certainly is not. The 5 is an easy drink and a rum that I would pick just because of its youth and I like it more than the 7 and a lot more than the 12. It doesn't happen often that I prefer the younger bottlings more but with FdC I apparantly do.

Because of this rum I feel obliged to take the rating of the FdC-7 down by one mark and frankly the FdC-5 is the only FdC that I might buy again. At its pricepoint one of the nicer ones I tasted.

I do not perceive too many flavours, jist clean and elegant rum. I mean it in a very positive sense. A rum for everybody in my opinion.
