A sugar-free 12-year old, ultra premium rum that is sustainably produced (Carbon Neutral & Fair Trade certified). From a 5th generation family estate, it is naturally aged without artificial ingredients, distilled 100% with renewable energy and KOSHER certified. A full-bodied rum with a long and smooth finish that lingers in the palate. Best enjoyed in a Rum Old Fashioned or with a splash of premium sparkling water or ginger ale and an orange twist.
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.
A great molasses rum in the aged category, really solid on its own in a snifter, where the bouquet can adequately gather, or just straight down your gullet. But it’s happy when FdC 7 goes down, because this isn’t a dessert rum, it’s a rum to share during a conversation with a close friend. Not fancy at all, but an excellent value sipper.
Lets say just "good" rum for this one... i dont want to say average as this is not average rum but it has lack of aroma (not very visible) and something special in taste is missing. Not have any special feeling while drinkig this 12 year rum...
I can echo the people saying this is no better than the 7 year. Flor de Cana 12 year is a pretty average and dull rum. Save your money and get the 7 year. You won't miss much other than a slightly smoother burn... Still the same boring flavor that doesn't add much to a mix drink.
I used to be a scotch drinker and after trying this I am a 12 year Flor De Cana drinker. Best tasting aged spirit I have ever tried.
It is a rum that is so well balanced, not too sweet, not to dry, no strong alcohol taste, pleasuring warming taste, so balanced it doesn't stand out negative in any way buy doesn't impress so much neighter. It's a rum you can't do absolutely wrong with but it did not make me fall in love with. Good for sipping, disappears when mixing.
Muy equilibrado, fácil de tomar, suave y con buen regusto final. No demasiado dulce, en nariz sin embargo tenía notas de canela y chocolate. Muy indicado para tomar solo, sin ni siquiera hielo
This is exactly what I love in a fantastic rum. It’s rich and bold without being a cloying sugar bomb. Just the perfect amount sweetness lingers on the lips with a nice long, clean and warm finish. A lot of the usual suspects on the nose but refined with so much more complexity with additional notes of whipped butter, buckwheat honey, white grape and a touch of earthy-nuttiness. The palate follows with the addition of warming spices, butterscotch and slightest hint of citrus peel. Not overly woody but terrifically aged with absolutely no dustiness or graininess from the casks. There’s no need to mask anything here. One of the most balanced rums I’ve had. Medium-light body with no syrupiness. This is a real aged rum and not a bottled rum cocktail like so many others.
