A nice aroma and colour in the glass , a little astringent at first but settles down quickly into a very well made rum with just the right amount of sweetness in it. Nice exit with no real burn , enjoyable. Also makes a good mixer.
Would like to try the 18 or 25.

Check out my profile for my personal scoring method, click more to see my full review.
Recommendation: Fine with a chaser & ice, maybe a cola to compliment the slight bitter

Color - a little lighter than my preference but it will do (1)
Volatility - a deep inhale of the glass gives quite a vapor hit, but sipping is not as harsh as expected (3)
Legs - solid legs, no feathering at all (1)
Complexity - starts out a little uneventful, the middle is slightly bitter but bearable, after-taste fades quickly but not immediately (1)

good rum for little money, an essential accessory for ordinary rum

Very nice rum, a bit of alcohol kick at the end but in a nice way. It might lack refinement of his Caribbean cousins but it has definitely character which is worthy to try. My cabinet permanent addition.

Nose: Sharp, quite alcoholic, banana,toffee and oak. Not that promising
Palate: Quite sharp and bit alcoholic, oaky, subtle notes of dark chocolate, coffee and caramel and baking spices.
Bit too subtle for my taste.
Finish: medium, oaky and dry. Quite pleasant.
Overall: This type of rum is not for me personally.
While it isnt sugared up to destruction like el dorado 12, this rum is just way too subtle tastewise, no dominant flavours except the oakiness.This rum just feels quite flat and also slightly alcoholic.
The price was cheap for 12yo rum and presentation and package was maybe the best i have yet seen on a rum bottle so if u get a chance to get the legacy edition of this bottle for cheap, go for it.

40% ABV. Faint alcohol on the nose. Some nail polish. That's about it. Watery. Some tannic astringency. Vanilla. Harsh. Short finish. Improves with time; a bit more vanilla and oak, but still very light.

This took waaaay to long to open up, and once it did, there was hardly anything there. I expected a lot more of this one. At least it's dry.

Goldenes Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase am Anfang sehr leicht, fruchtig und blumig. Jeh länger Er atmet umso mehr gehen die Düfte in die tiefe, gebranntes Karamell, Leder, Tabak, dunkles Holz, Lavagestein.
Im Gaumen, kompromisslos ehrlich und ohne Firlefanz. Angenehm jagen die Aromen von unreifen Früchten, Karamell, Vanille und Eichenholz über die Zunge. Jegliche Süsse fehlt.
im Abgang, sehr holzig und scharf und doch sehr lieblich. Auch die fruchtigen und blumigen Töne schwingen nach.
Ein Ron für Geniesser, finde jedoch diese art von Ron könnte noch ein paar Jahre im Fass lagern, freue mich auf eine Verkostung des 25 yo.

Golden amber in the glass.
In the nose at the beginning very light, fruity and floral. The longer he breathes the more the scents go into the deep, burned caramel, leather, tobacco, dark wood, lava rock.
On the palate, uncompromisingly honest and without frills. The aromas of unripe fruits, caramel, vanilla and oak wood pleasantly haunt the tongue. Any sweetness is missing.
On the finish, very woody and spicy and yet very kind. The fruity and floral tones also resonate.
A Ron for connoisseurs, but think this kind of Ron could be mature for a few more years in the barrel, looking forward to a tasting of the 25 yo.

Flor de Cana 12 year old is in a different level than its younger siblings 4, 5 and 7 year olds, with very good flavor profile, but unfortunately quite a strong afterburn. 12 year old will make one helluva rum-and-coke drink. Can easily be a neat sipper also.

The palate is drier than expected with medium weight, and some clove, dark chocolate, and dried fruit flavours on a warming, medium-length finish. It is not a great sipping rum, nor does it make a good rum and coke(not enough rum flavour) ,but it is perfect in a rum punch.
