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.
Color : Amber
Flavour : Woody and nutty, gentle ripe fruits, sweet spices
Palate : Rich, mature, mid-bodied
A little bit too woody to my opinion, could be match easily with a cigar
Un rhum très (trop?) discret au nez qui séduit en bouche par ses arômes poivrés et sa légèreté. Malheureusement le plaisir est de courte durée et s'estompe très rapidement à peine réhaussée pa rune finale sucrée tout juste perceptible.
Very nice and creamy. Great fireside. marry with ice about 10 minutes.
Very Nice smooth rum, great daily drinker
Flor de Cana Centenario is a sweet but strong aged rum (12years) from nicaragua, with some smoky tobacco and oak flavours. Not my favourite but a good one!
Better on the rocks, nice in cocktails
A nice rum & Pepsi
I grabbed this on our first trip to Aruba. I wanted to try a Nicaraguan Rum and this was a perfect starter. Now, that I have tried the 18 YO, I am spoiled though.
Nice for cuba libre
Reasonably good, a bit thin, not the cleanest finish. But I'll gladly drink it! Doesn't beat my gold standard, El Dorado 15.
This is a fine 12 year rum, smooth, balanced and full of fruits, nuts and light spice flavours but unfortunately for this rum i tried it right before a shot of their 18 year old which i suppose as expected outshone it. All the same though it was a quality product and will happily try it again on its own next time lol
love this stuff
