Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
I've changed my rating to a 7. It is an excellent sipping rum, straight without ice. Reasonably smooth and it has a nice rum flavor. Those are important characteristics of rums that I like, I generally don't care for spiced rums or harsh ones. It is not particularly complex, so that keeps it from being rated absolutely superb. However, it perfectly fills the need for a great tasting, smooth, sipping rum.
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.
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.
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
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.
Smooth finish, sharp aroma. Good on the rocks, which I prefer, no need for a mixer. Distinct flavor but I can't quite place it.
I bought it in the rectangle bottle like the 25Y.. fantastic looking bottle, an ornament to any home display rack..
beautiful caramel colored rum, very good taste and aromas, logically priced.. a quality all rounder rum for everyday sipping or mixing..
Finally talked my Elks bar into getting some sipping rum. The only one our distributer had was this. Very mild aroma. Very smooth, little or no afterburn. Aroma and taste is mild floral. Worth a try.
