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.
Definitely not sweet. I would say dry.
What is very important in time of sweet rums everywhere. Good matured feeling, very good bottle.
Manque de finesse, trop sur l'alcool.
peu de longueur en bouche, peu d'arome
un peu déçu finalement, je m'attendais a mieux venant d'un 12 ans
its well balanced rum really nice sipping rum not for mixing( my opinion)
Expanding from the Grand Reserve, this mid-level aged rum offers a little more complexity and richness.
A bit smoother, fuller and complex than his younger 7y brother. Sweet and nice touch of flavour of butter. I like new bottle design. Compared with older version (somebody says that is better receipt), there small difference in taste, but I like newer more.
Již se prodává v nové hezčí láhvi, velice jemný rum, ne moc sladký, jemně kořeněný, ale nic navíc mě na něm bohužel nezaujalo.
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.
well, i love the chocolate taste and flavour. Also some almond and nuts. Decembers tasting top 5. good value for the price. Yet i would expect more complexity from 12yo. as to my notes - it misses some sweetness to have more points.
The 7 year is a better value, especially for mixing. Personally prefer Zaya 12 and Abuelo 12 for sipping as they are sweeter and smoother. This is dryer and harsher if that is the style that you prefer.
Not a smooth and nice rum. I find it a little boring and I can only use it as a mixer. Haven't tried the 18 or 25 yet, but hope they are a lot better. Not a re-buy.

Prima rum en geen suiker toegevoegd.
A good everyday rum. Actually enjoyed it with Coca-Cola. I never mix my rums but this one was good for that. Really want to try the 18yr & 25yr
Not the smoothest sipping rum, has a bite. If you like very full body with orange and oak this will be your rum. Not my favorite.
Můj první starší rum, takže hodnocení je možná trochu nadsazené, ale dobrý dost.
Smooth, full-bodied taste with the usual FdC notes of vanilla and caramel. Excellent!
This is the one which offered me the world of rums. Very easy to sip,a typical Nicaragua rum,a must have .Flowers and fruits in the nose,great feeling on the palete,no afterburn
This is like matusalem 15 years, very harsh in the mouth, not, not good
A great choice: not pricy, still great complex flavor. Sweet, but not as sweet as for example El Dorado 12y.
Very nice on the tongue, great aftertaste ("right" amount of sting).
With iPhones its so easy to read a few reviews online when searching out a new rum at the LCBO. that is exactly what made me buy it. first try was straight up, to be honest i found it one of the harshest rum's I've had to date.
next a friend and i tried it with coke, that was very good. It will be my go to rum with cola.
Bottle : It has a nice looking bottle with great color of the rum. That and a tip from a friend lent to buy of this bottle.
Nose : Nice round and full scent.
Taste : Nice full and rich taste.. With a awful full tone of orange.
Finish : Long finish wich evolves and leave your mouth filled with that awful taste of orange.
Bare in mind that i really hate the taste of orange when you read this tasting. It´s a fine rum, if you like pyrat xo and zacapa solera 23, you will probably like this one too..
Ein schöner feiner Rum. Sanft im Mund. Ein Hauch von Trockenbeeren rundet den Geschmack ab. Kann schon pur getrunken werden.
As a sweet-tooth, this rum can be sometimes too dry for me, but nonetheless a very good sipper!
Happy to have this in my collection smooth and flavourful enjoy
Men ikke rigtig nogen eftersmag.
18 års så meget bedre.
