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.
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.
Up to the point of trying the FDC 12, my rum purchases had mostly been sweeter rums. So upon first taste, this tasted a bit thin and dry. Many positive reviews encouraged me to be patient, so I did and that patience was rewarded. I've come to enjoy this one and actually find myself thinking of bourbon occasionally as I sip. After having taken a breather from my sweeter rums to get acclimated with the FDC 12, I decided to try the Plantation XO again recently. I couldn't believe how sweet the Plantation tasted! Still love the Plantation but the two rums couldn't be more different. Variety is the spice of life!
Not a bad rum if you like whisky, but not for me ultimately. The good: cheap, some character up front, smooth finish. The bad: not much in the way of flavor, at least not for a 12. Defenders will say it's subtle, but I'd say too much so. Also, I found it is oddly similar in taste to Don Q Anejo, not sure why this is, but it is.
Rum jsem naslepo zvolila kvůli krásné flašce, aniž bych tušila, jak chutná. Pro mě celkem zklamání, suchý drsný rum. A jeho 18letá verze není o nic lepší.
This rum is one of my favourites, been in Nicaragua at the distillery. Very nice to be there and pair it with a Nicaraguan cigar
Decent sipping rum, preferred it with a bit of ice. It had a little bit of burn in the finish with some warm oak/wood overtones. Decent for the mid-range price ($36 US).
A refreshingly light rum with a favour of dried fruits, but still without a bothersome sharpness or burning mouthfeel which many rums at this level still has.
Please note that this review is for the original Flor de Cana 12 year old, not the newer bottles with the "Legacy" label. The Legacy has a much thinner flavour and less sweetness and is a least a point below in the rating.
It’s good but as soon as you have it’s older sister you won’t go back. I ended up mixing it with coke. It was a little harsh but the aftertaste was good.
Not super sweet but significantly smoother than the 7 year. Great over some rocks and makes a very luxurious Daiquiri.
Common aromas, simple but good.
It's like Barcelo Onyx, smooth with a lot of wood.
Smell: oak, caramel, dry fruits,
Taste: smooth, caramel, wood, some fruit (apricot), spice
This is a great value for the quality of rum that you get. The aroma and palate is very similar to Santa Teresa and Real McCoy 12. It’s a good to go drink.
Vlakke rum. Doet weinig in eerste instantie. Droog en houtig in het midden maar verdwijnt vrij snel. Alcohol blijft langer hangen.
Tento rum jsem si zakoupil jelikož má krásnou láhev. Je to dobrý rum i na dlouhé popíjení.
Chuť: vyvážená, dojezd tvrdší
Opětovná koupě: ne
Cena: okolo 800,- Kč
Lighter than it looks, with nice oak and vanilla undertones, it’s not quite as smooth as I’d expect after 12 years in the barrel. Still a solid choice to sip, and stands up well to ice or lime.
