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.
adorable with a bite of chocolate... and even if you dont have chocolate :o)
Très doux et bien balancé.
Really smooth and well balanced.
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.
First tried this Rum recently and loved it. First few were with Coke but with the 12 and 18 year old, they are perfect straight up
A decent drop, find it a bit light for my personal tastes.
Super sweet rum, recommended 100% if you find a good offer below 30$/L
Not bad, not great. Kind of smooth, but felt like there wasn't much taste.
It has a stronger alcohol aroma than taste especially once sat to breath for a minute. The mellow oaky, caramel, vanilla banana and a touch of chocolate tastes are very subtle and subsides too quick for my liking. It has all the traits of a brilliant younger rum. I expected a bit more from a 12 year, but at the price you can't complain.
I love Flor de Cana 3 sisters.
25 year rating 10"
18 year rating 8" same as this 12 year.
Creamy, moderate sweetness.
Rhum de mélasse.
Fut de bourbon.
Fruit sec, caramel vanille et épices. Light.
Vůně: Ovocnější a lepší jak u Flor de Cana 18, přesto stále takový nevyzrálý
Chuť: silnější rum s poměrně výrazným pálením na dojezdu.
doporučuji tento rum před 18-ti letou verzí
I really wanted to enjoy the zesty orange, mahogany and nutty complex this bottle offers... however, I find most Flor De Cana rums nearly impossible to enjoy due to the overpowering taste of alcohol. Is this rum or vodka? Depending on the cost of fuel at the pump, buy a bottle of this and fill your truck with it.
Flor de Cana 12 year rum starts with a drink at the throat, and not the mouth. From the throat the drink envelopes to the mouth and distills into the sinus which notices a hint of caramel and Mahogony. Upon taking the drink, the spirit bites once, maybe twice before settling in where and when the Cigar is lit. "and if you do this it'll help you some sunny day" or night... Enjoy the best!
Complex, with a smooth aftertaste. I would recommend this to anyone, but there are better rums to be had at this price range.
Good price point. oak with a strong alcohol taste. Great mixed.
Compared 12 yr vs 18 yr. Both smell extremely similar, the 12 tastes a touch bit sweeter and is slightly more rough, the 18 tastes a little bit more buttery and slightly more smooth but they are very close. I like the 18 better than the 12. I like diplomatico exclusiva better than both.
No additional ingredients required.
Thanks for stopping by!
I really enjoyed this rum, it's got a bit of spicy bite in it, but goes down surprisingly smooth for what it feels like in your mouth. Nice notes of chocolate and oak.
No aroma, too rough,alcohol taste
I didn't try 18th and 25th years
Pas bon pentute, 56 $ CAD , je me suis faite avoir. Des fois on pense payer cher mais sa ne vaut pas cher. Gout tres puissant dans la gorge. Pas aimé.
Some of the best for the money, full bodied and slightly sweet. I prefer it over the 18.
I love the Flor de Cana line of rums and the 12 year is no exception. For you rum lovers, you won't be disappointed. No harsh flavor with limited heat going down. Complex characteristics with a nice contrast of Oakiness and sweetness made for sipping neat. I would go with Flor de Cana's younger siblings for mixing with a less expensive price tag. The 18 year is exceptionally good.
I have to say that I like it, maybe it doesn't have any special extraordinary vibes in it but it is an HONEST rum, it is not any fake sugarbomb! Taste comes from maturation, there is plenty of wood aroma that I like. Bit too price in my country.
Final verdict: Maybe some day I will give it another shot
