Tasty, but not quite great

Finally talked my Elks bar into getting some sipping rum. The only one our distributer had was this. Very mild aroma. Very smooth, little or no afterburn. Aroma and taste is mild floral. Worth a try.

This is a good rum with a good bit of leather, wood, dark / overripe fruit and some smokiness. The flavors are somewhat subtle and I used to find it rather dull but as I've gone through a bottle it has grown on me.

Very disapointing for a 12 year old rum. Strong burn and taste is almost just alcohol. Maybe I'm just not a fan of FDC!? Didn't like the 7yo either.

Slow aged Ron with semi sweet taste where some bits of caramel, fruits, nugat and oak signs are present. Nice smell and colour. Overall ok.

Am avut (si am inca) o senzatie ciudata legata de acest rom. a fost prima data cand am facut o infruntare intre 2 romuri: flor de cana 12 si cel de 18 ani . am observat ca cel de 18 ani pare sa aiba o ardere mai puternica iar alcoolul poarta cumva aromele si se plimba practic impreuna. am avut senzatia initial ca si 12 face la fel si am fost convins ca e aproape identic si ma gandeam deja ca nu merita investitia in plus pt 18 . in serile urmatoare am observat ca nu se simte in acelasi stil taria si se simte mai degraba pe gat , este un rom mult mai cuminte dar nu e totusi o inglobare a tariei sau vreun echilibru ( cum nu e nici la 18 de altfel) doar ca imprastie taria in moduri diferite si asta m a dezamagit la 12 pentru ca pt 18 o vedeam ca o calitate
se simt in miros ceva condimente si ceva citric pe care n am reusit sa l disting (cum am reusit dupa ceva timp la 18 sa mi dau seama ca e o aroma subtila de portocala)
in gust se simte o combinatie de caramel cu iz dulceag , dar si ceva amarui si in postgust tabac si amareala persistenta .

este posibil sa fi fost o gresala ca am inceput tocmai cu cel de 18 ani si acum cu cel de 12 .cel de 18 statea de 2 luni (poate mai mult) cu ceva licoare spre terminare de sticla si tot a fost mult peste 12 .
ramane totusi de luat in seama ca gustul nu e rau iar aromele par naturale si din cate stiu nu are zahar sau are foarte putin

sper ca cel de 7 care sta la coada sa fie mai bun ))

Good rhum well balanced not too sweet, with aroms of caramel and vanilla, but a little too strong oak taste, overwhelming.

- Roku 1875 ital Alfredo Francisco Pellas Canessa cestuje do Nicaragui. 1890 zakládá Flor de Cana destilerii v San Antoniu hned vedle San Cristóbal, to je nejaktivnější sopka v Nicarague. Pátá generace rodiny Pellasů řídí společnost dodnes.
- Zrání probíhá 12 let v dubových sudech po burbonu 5 mil od aktivní sopky. Řadí se do skupiny polosladkých rumů.
- Barva je jantarová
- Vůně je plná, sladká po nugátu a vanilce.
- Chuť je po nugátu, mandlích, třešních a vanilce s pikantním kořením.
Zůstává chuť karamelu a dubové kúry.

Makes a great rum old fashioned. Goes down smooth.

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.
