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.
Alkohol: 40 %
Aroma: Hřejivá, nasládlá vůně s hutně hlubokými tóny skořice, kůže a medu. (85 b)
Chuť: Jemná, sametová chuť. Čokoláda, dřevo, karamel. Vše extrémně jemné, pro mě až lehce nevýrazné. V dozvuku trochu čokolády a dřeva. (81 b)
Shrnutí: Pokud někdo u rumů oceňuje jemnost, mohl by být s Flor de Caňou spokojen. Osobně mi jemnost nevadí, pokud se chuť ještě nějakým způsobem vyvíjí, tady se po jemnosti už nic zajímavého neděje. Od 12 let starého rumu očekávám více. Testoval jsem vzorek od kamaráda, kterému jsem tento rum sehnal.
Un good rum with cola but the el dorado 12 is better
I found this go excellent in a rum Manhattan. Not as sweet as some.
Decent on ice lovely to sip....very nice to sip over an evening
6.5 actually. Both the package and bottle look very classy, and the smell was quite nice too. I would almost describe the taste as ordinary, a bit on the safe side. There's some sweetness, maybe even bittersweet, but none of the flavours really stands out... The finish is quite nice, but could've lasted longer. Nope, not the drink for me, however, my wife likes it quite a bit. Then again, we both prefer the Appleton 12.
Ingen dålig rom men ingen för mig men med cola är den god
My love of El Dorado may be tainting my view here. Someone else described it as "astringent" at first. This seems bang on. Once it had a chance to settle, it mellowed out a bit, however I didn't find much character for a 12 year old. Had it neat with a drop of water. I may add an ice cube to make next glass.
Velice zajímavý rum, určitě mohu doporučit. Zvláštní kombinace jemné kořeněné chuti a máslového ocasu. Zatím jsem žádný podobný rum nepil.
I bought this just by chance at an airport. Didn't expect much of it since it was fairly cheap and reviews seemed OK. I poured me a small glass and stuck my nose in it to notice a fairly nice but typical scent of caramel. First sip and BAM! What was that? A very rich taste of vanilla and coconut (!), followed by tobacco? Caramel, or is it butterscotch? Very interesting. And a long tail of balanced sweetness and fruits follow. Though the initial reaction it isn't heavy in any way, quite balanced and light in it's flavor. Very smooth. Loved it, but it isn't my favorite. More of an interesting encounter, and something really unexpected. I would be interested to find any of the more matured versions of it.
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.
Flor de Cana 12-year is a good one to begin with. A excellant smooth taste at the end, maybe miss something at the begining! Do not have too much expectations but still a good choice ! Maybe try to mix it. I didn't.
This rum is a nice caramel red colour with a mild butterscotch smell. It tastes strong with a little sweetness to it...
Flor de Caña Centenario 12-year Rum is certainly a finest Rum. It comes from Nicaragua. I will say the anything aged 12 years not in solera meant to be a sipping spirit, not a mixer. I got my chance to finish one bottle.
Definitelly not bad, but for me, this rum is lacking any specific taste which would make me buy it for the second time. You are not going to go wrong with this one, but don't have high expectations.
Good en zeker niet slecht maar er zijn betere 12 oude rum'
Overall, I think Flor de Cana rums are a great value. Not the ultra best, but always solid quality. Their aged rums, starting with the 12 year old, are very nice. This is a great rum with mixers, although a bit too sweet for cola. I enjoy it on the rocks and think it is one of the best for this style.
Good , but not more then 7/10. Smooth and nice finish . Good on rocks or in drinks.
Received this bottle as a gift, and tasted on the rocks straight up. Smooth, nice finish, a great all around Friday night (or any night) sipping rum - great touch to add to your collection. Nice!
it started as a 5, not sure if it will ever get to an 8. again, this is a rum you can sip. it is the only way i drink rum. neat.
I cannot give this rum more than 6 because it simply is not as good as DR or ED 8YO.
I bought it because of the wonderful flask shaped bottle and low price (20 euro). It had fantastic smell of nougat but thats about when all the great things ceased to flow.
Tastewise the rum offers you nuts, possibly walnuts and off course some nougat. But that is all. Nothing more.
It is too boozy so not much on the soft side with this rum. I think finished the bottle very quickly because I simply did not want to have the bottle on my shelf for too long.
Decent but boring rum which promises more on the nose than it delivers on the palate. For the money it is well worth trying but this is hardly a rebuy.
The first thing I noticed is that this really doesn't have a typical rum aroma in the bottle. Seems a bit stronger and less sweet indicative of a drier rum. Tasting it confirms it. This is definitely a dry rum that has hints of sweetness with some bitters. Some who probably enjoy bourbon would appreciate this as a sipping rum while others, including myself will find this excellent in mixed drinks and colas. A nice rum but seems to be appreciated most by experienced rum connoisseurs.
Not my favorite rum. I like smoother rum than this .Need taste 18 and 25 years.
Lekker zacht,beter dan de 7. Geen heel uitgesproken smaak maar drinkt erg lekker en makkelijk weg.
...macht aber trotzdem grosse Hoffnung auf die älteren Tropfen des Hauses Flor de Cana. Wenn dann auf Eis geniessen.
