A sugar-free 12-year old, ultra premium rum that is sustainably produced (Carbon Neutral & Fair Trade certified). From a 5th generation family estate, it is naturally aged without artificial ingredients, distilled 100% with renewable energy and KOSHER certified. A full-bodied rum with a long and smooth finish that lingers in the palate. Best enjoyed in a Rum Old Fashioned or with a splash of premium sparkling water or ginger ale and an orange twist.
Tasty, but not quite great
I used to be a scotch drinker and after trying this I am a 12 year Flor De Cana drinker. Best tasting aged spirit I have ever tried.
Flor de Cana 12 year rum starts with a drink at the throat, and not the mouth. From the throat the drink envelopes to the mouth and distills into the sinus which notices a hint of caramel and Mahogony. Upon taking the drink, the spirit bites once, maybe twice before settling in where and when the second sip begins. This is where and when, you light that Cigar. "and if you do this it'll help you some sunny day" or night... Enjoy the best!
Gemeinsam mit dem Appleton Estate Rare Blend 12 Years ist der Flor de Cana 12 Years mein absoluter Favorit - als Schul-Note bekommt er von mir eine 1,1. Also besser geht es fast nicht.
Had the opportunity to taste this rum and I was amazed at its complexity for a 12 year. Beautiful notes of vanilla, spice, and subtle oak. This can be great alone, on the rocks, or in a cocktail. If you are coming into the rum game and want to try something great, then this is it. Highly recommended.
I love the Flor de Cana line of rums and the 12 year is no exception. For those of you that enjoy whiskey and bourbon, this is for you. For you rum lovers, you won't be disappointed either. 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.
Always enjoyed Flora dark 4 yr rum. So one day I decided to upgrade and buy higher up. In conclusion I will stick to the 4 yr. it suits me fine and in the end that is all that matters. Duke
Taking a second go at this bottle last night and I think I overlooked some of the flavors in this rum. This rum dances in you mouth with flavors only to follow with an unexpected slap in the face with a dark explosive finish. The flavors flow through your mouth with a rich vanilla and as this vanilla flavor vanishes you get a burst of these undertones of oak. The finish of the bottle was my favorite part, a strong stiff finish with a lot of complex flavors that I cannot wait to further explore. This rum drank like a well oiled machine and I strongly encourage everyone that disliked this rum to go back and take a second take. I also left my old review below so you can see what I experienced on my first take.
Original Review "Flor de Cana 12 year is golden amber in color. This 12 year rum has undertones of a whisky or bourbon flavor from the barrels the rum was aged in. This 12 year tastes young in the mouth. Flor de Cana has hints of vanilla and sugar, but because this rum was aged in bourbon barrels the flavor is overwhelmed by the taste of the barrel."
Slowly been working my way through my bottle. It has a gorgeous amber hue and amazing flavor. First sip always washes over me with a calm. Slight spice to it, almost a black paper spice. Medium heat that warms its way through you. Nice length to the finish. I prefer mine neat.
"Flor de Cana 12-Year rum review by The Ultimate Rum Guide"
"A sip reveals a very smooth yet spicy rum. There is very little burn it tingles on the lips and tongue for a long time. It is a long finish."
