Definitely not sweet. I would say dry.
What is very important in time of sweet rums everywhere. Good matured feeling, very good bottle.

Some Rums are cloyingly sweet, too sweet in my opinion. I love the flavors of a good rum, it can taste like whiskey or bourbon only better (in my opinion). I've gotten older (in my 50s now) and the excessive sweetness of rum has started to bother me.

Flor de Cana 12 has all the flavour, subtle spice and smoothness of good rum without that over the top sweetness. Don't even get me started on Appleton.... ugghhh.

Flor de Cana 12 has flavour, is clean and smooth, great for sipping and mixes well.

Very solid rum at its price range. On the nose typical smell of sugar cane, caramel and oak. In the mouth very good balance of caramel, honey, nougat, oak and little bit of fruit. Rum is smooth with little bit harsh at the end. Nice suprise.

This rum would qualify as a “true” premium rum, but there are a lot of them that are better. I tried this on a recommendation from Total Wine. Got it home and was disappointed. It could not stand side-by-side with my favorite rums.

It’s sugar water aged in oak barrels. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great baseline but I would prefer something with more complexity to it. Faint smell of wood before the alcohol takes over. Taste is similar, the woody flavour lingers and lasts through a bit of a bite from the alcohol. Definitely not as sweet as some other rums around this price point ($40 CAD), but it’s great to compare and taste the difference of sweetness for yourself. As far as drinkability, it is solid but perhaps the 18 will deliver a more exciting punch.

I like mixing and sipping the 18 so I was looking forward to trying this. The nose is a bit sharp and as a sipper there is to much bite. As a mixer it is nice with ginger ale, and citrus cutting the edge. With coke it carries well but prefer the citrus, bringing about the individual tastes in the rum. Overall this is nice but no depth for a mid-prices rum, will not be stocking once I use this up.

Bit too much of alcohol taste, otherwise pleasant aroma and after taste.

Rum lacked flavour or complexity. Seemed sharp and acerbic.

This is initially a little harsh on the tongue, but it soon mellows into smokey, woody flavours as the burn fades. Not at all sweet, almost like an Islay malt on the palate. Tasty.

Ya con un lindo color y un sabor aceptable pero quema un poco!!! Aún así, sabe bien solo con hielo y agua tónica.
