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.
My first experience with flor was the 18 year, so I'm a little biased in my rating. Carries the same smoothness I know flor de cana for, however it lacks the fruity tones found in the longer aged bottles. Simple vanilla and banana lightly grace the tongue before washing to a dark chocolate throat with a burn.
A great sipping rum served on the rocks. Also lovely with a splash of cola. A smooth rum with a nice, simple and not too complex flavoring, which I like. Not too sweet but not too strong either. The bite of alcohol doesn't hit the tongue until after swallowing. It also has a lovely looking bottle which will stand out in your cabinet.
This is a great rum! And the price is very good for the quality. Rich and smooth with some sweetness. Great on ice or mixed with Coke or your favorite mixer. I actually like it mixed with bai coconut or coconut/pineapple!
N- Penetrating soft minted chocolate with scents of woody nuance, green barley, husky and clove filled the body, sits on a layer of rich mineral. (19/25)
P- Much consistent with the aroma, milky bitter-minted cocoa with fruit zest, nice zings of metal and mineral follow by seasoned wood extracts for a fine depth. (20/25)
F- Short-medium, mellow and rounded.... would also means it doesn't leave much impression at the end. Faded away rather quick at weak strength. Minty sweet with crusted pink peppercorn. (18/25)
Balanced:- Active aroma with decent palate, but lack stamina to finish the race. (19/25)
Weighted Rate:- 76pt

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