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.
Mi-corsé et plus sec que ce qu'on attendrait, il révèle en bouche des saveurs de clou de girofle, de chocolat noir et de fruits séchés, menant à une finale chaleureuse de longueur moyenne. excellent rapport qualité/prix.
This is solid, no frills rum. Not too spicy, a little dry, and not much burn. Short finish and lack of complexity keep it from scoring better.
Sugar: 0 gpl. Solid rum for mixing and if you want a sipping rum just add this to some ice and you will be quite happy. Not as smooth as the 18 year old but it is great value for the money here in Ontario. A step up from the 7 year old version. It's a must have in your collection at $40 a bottle.
A nice smooth rum, best consumed with an ice cube or two.
Nice bottle and the drink has a nice tobacco taste. This us a great sipping rum and any collection should have this or the 18 in their collection.
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.
