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.
A nice aroma and colour in the glass , a little astringent at first but settles down quickly into a very well made rum with just the right amount of sweetness in it. Nice exit with no real burn , enjoyable. Also makes a good mixer.
Would like to try the 18 or 25.
Color intenso, olor agradable, madera, sin embargo no encontré poco atractivo su sabor, sin mayor cosas que me llamara la atención para un ron de 12 años. No mesta mal pero esperaba mas
J’ai du mal à noter ce rhum. Il est ni bon ni mauvais mais trop commun, sans personnalité. On note la touche des futs de whiskey ce qui peut le rendre intéressant pour ceux qui n’aiment pas les rhums trop doux et qui cherchent du caractère.
Pas le top non plus mais sympa en digestif. Je préfère le 18 ans
A delicious rum with a nice floral essence, very nice in mixed drinks!
A very light rum, from the point of taste and also color. I know also the 18-year rum and both not great imho.
non male, non brucia, leggermente dolce ma non emozionante.
Ideal para tomarlo en día de fiesta, tiene un gran sabor con un fuerte sabor a madera como todos los rones de flor de caña
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.
I always try to discover the layers of a rum, but I was unable to find anything in this. It's not bad, one can drink it on rocks or even neat, but at this price you could get several better ones.
Very delicate taste.. It is not sweet rum. It has very noticeable oak taste
A smooth, enjoyable rum with a definite hint of coconut. So much so that this is reminiscent of a good Sri Lankan Arrack
One word.... SMOOTH. This starts off smelling of molasses, vanilla, coconut and apricot. The taste lives up to the smell and has a very nice finish due to being aged in oak casks. Great stuff neat or with 1 cube.
I absolutely love Flor de Cana 12 I find it easily sipped or mixed with cola / smooth not to sweet
there are some better rums, but for this money it`s ok!
This is one of few rums I always gladly come back to after some tastings. I cant find a single thing I dont like about this rum. Perfectly balanced, always will have a special place in my cabinet.
Interesting taste, strong and opulent. A bit invasive in the beginning but it calms down to a more obedient rum after some time, giving in the full vanilla and toffee aroma. Hints of citrus, chocolate and coffee can be found as well. Aftertaste is strong and long, but the aroma dissapeare leaving only the harshest body behind
Really like this one. Clean and sharp aroma, golden brown in color.
Taste it's a mixture of honey,chocolate and a hint of nut
Wow..I smell bananas... beautiful color.. loaded with different flavors..very smooth..cant wait to try the 18
Not great. Kinda bland. Not a whole lot of flavor punching through. But its rum so I like it.
Un ron que suele estar a buen precio y de gran calidad. Comienza la gama alta de Flor de Caña.
Mellow flavour while refreshingly "dry". One of the less sweet rums i have in my cabinet. Flor de Cana products are generally less bold and this one is definitely up to standard. Best on the rocks because it tends to disappear when mixed.
Like all rums from Flor de cana, this is a smooth rum that doesn't taste to much of alcohol. But there is nothing spectacular about this one.
Strong alcohol on the nose. Seemed to mellow after sitting for a bit. Woody flavor. Overall a decent sipping rum.
