Flor de Cana 12-Year rum

Flor de Caña Centenario 12-Year rum is distilled in a continuous column still process, then rests for 12 years in small American white oak barrels that previously held whiskey and bourbon.

Flor de Caña was founded in 1890 by Francisco Alfredo Pellas at the San Antonio Sugar Mill, in Chichigalpa, Nicaragua. The company remains headed by the Pellas family to this day and harvests the molasses and sugarcane used to create their rum from fields adjacent to the distillery in Chichigalpa.

Very good rhum, not so sweet. Very similar 18 YO. No spirit flavour, tasty caramel and oak

This rum is priced right for a better sipping rum. Different flavor warm vs cold.

Rum jsem naslepo zvolila kvůli krásné flašce, aniž bych tušila, jak chutná. Pro mě celkem zklamání, suchý drsný rum. A jeho 18letá verze není o nic lepší.

This rum is one of my favourites, been in Nicaragua at the distillery. Very nice to be there and pair it with a Nicaraguan cigar

Decent sipping rum, preferred it with a bit of ice. It had a little bit of burn in the finish with some warm oak/wood overtones. Decent for the mid-range price ($36 US).

Good Rum to sip or mix with drink. A little pricey, but definitely good sip.

A refreshingly light rum with a favour of dried fruits, but still without a bothersome sharpness or burning mouthfeel which many rums at this level still has.
Please note that this review is for the original Flor de Cana 12 year old, not the newer bottles with the "Legacy" label. The Legacy has a much thinner flavour and less sweetness and is a least a point below in the rating.

It’s good but as soon as you have it’s older sister you won’t go back. I ended up mixing it with coke. It was a little harsh but the aftertaste was good.

Not super sweet but significantly smoother than the 7 year. Great over some rocks and makes a very luxurious Daiquiri.

This is a great value for the quality of rum that you get. The aroma and palate is very similar to Santa Teresa and Real McCoy 12. It’s a good to go drink.

Een rum die makkelijk weg drinkt maar niet lekker blijft hangen .

Posted 22 days ago by Evelien from Netherlands with 9 ratings

Vlakke rum. Doet weinig in eerste instantie. Droog en houtig in het midden maar verdwijnt vrij snel. Alcohol blijft langer hangen.

I smell the coconut, caramel aroma, woody flavour, not too intensive, short finish.

Lighter than it looks, with nice oak and vanilla undertones, it’s not quite as smooth as I’d expect after 12 years in the barrel. Still a solid choice to sip, and stands up well to ice or lime.

This rum is very smooth and great in all sort of cocktails

bit stronger, than i would expect from a 12yr old rum.

It has an interesting aroma but you can feel the strong taste of alcohol. I liked the package, the color of the rum and the bottle.

Highly recommend. A lovely balance that the 12 years shows off well. Good value for the price point.

Nothing especially notable, except for the overall lack of sugar rush in a lot of other rums at this level, which I am happy to see.

Es un ron Nicaragüense de excelente relación calidad precio, en Boca se siente la madera, caña de azúcar, coco y chocolate, un ron para beberse solo definitivamente.

Très bon rapport qualité/prix à boire avec accompagnement ou avec une glace.
