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.
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
Very nice and smooth rum. Not that sweet and very rich taste.
A great demerara in the ages rum category, really solid on its own in a snifter, where the bouquet can adequately gather, or just down your stupid tongue. My tongue is stupid, ok, maybe not yours. But it’s happy when FdC 7 goes down, because this isn’t a dessert rum, it’s a rum to share during a conversation with a close friend. Not fancy at all, but an excellent value sipper.
sympatical to begin a new collection..
sweet with a coffee table chocolate and caramel flavor..
Lets say just "good" rum for this one... i dont want to say average as this is not average rum but it has lack of aroma (not very visible) and something special in taste is missing. Not have any special feeling while drinkig this 12 year rum...
I can echo the people saying this is no better than the 7 year. Flor de Cana 12 year is a pretty average and dull rum. Save your money and get the 7 year. You won't miss much other than a slightly smoother burn... Still the same boring flavor that doesn't add much to a mix drink.
It is a goon one and got its price, a real option but don’t havoc the quality to be taken as a brandy.
I used to be a scotch drinker and after trying this I am a 12 year Flor De Cana drinker. Best tasting aged spirit I have ever tried.
It is a rum that is so well balanced, not too sweet, not to dry, no strong alcohol taste, pleasuring warming taste, so balanced it doesn't stand out negative in any way buy doesn't impress so much neighter. It's a rum you can't do absolutely wrong with but it did not make me fall in love with. Good for sipping, disappears when mixing.
Muy equilibrado, fácil de tomar, suave y con buen regusto final. No demasiado dulce, en nariz sin embargo tenía notas de canela y chocolate. Muy indicado para tomar solo, sin ni siquiera hielo
