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.
Tasty, but not quite great
Both the package and bottle look very classy, and the smell was quite nice too. I would almost describe the taste as ordinary, a bit on the safe side. There's some sweetness, maybe even bittersweet, but none of the flavours really stands out... The finish is quite nice, but could've lasted longer. Nope, not the drink for me, however, my wife likes it quite a bit. Then again, we both prefer the Appleton 12.
My love of El Dorado may be tainting my view here. Someone else described it as "astringent" at first. This seems bang on. Once it had a chance to settle, it mellowed out a bit, however I didn't find much character for a 12 year old. Had it neat with a drop of water. I may add an ice cube to make next glass.
Velice zajímavý rum, určitě mohu doporučit. Zvláštní kombinace jemné kořeněné chuti a máslového ocasu. Zatím jsem žádný podobný rum nepil.
I bought this just by chance at an airport. Didn't expect much of it since it was fairly cheap and reviews seemed OK. I poured me a small glass and stuck my nose in it to notice a fairly nice but typical scent of caramel. First sip and BAM! What was that? A very rich taste of vanilla and coconut (!), followed by tobacco? Caramel, or is it butterscotch? Very interesting. And a long tail of balanced sweetness and fruits follow. Though the initial reaction it isn't heavy in any way, quite balanced and light in it's flavor. Very smooth. Loved it, but it isn't my favorite. More of an interesting encounter, and something really unexpected. I would be interested to find any of the more matured versions of it.
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.
Flor de Cana 12-year is a good one to begin with. A excellant smooth taste at the end, maybe miss something at the begining! Do not have too much expectations but still a good choice ! Maybe try to mix it. I didn't.
Flor de Caña Centenario 12-year Rum is certainly a finest Rum. It comes from Nicaragua. I will say the anything aged 12 years not in solera meant to be a sipping spirit, not a mixer. I got my chance to finish one bottle.
Definitelly not bad, but for me, this rum is lacking any specific taste which would make me buy it for the second time. You are not going to go wrong with this one, but don't have high expectations.
"Flor de Cana 12-Year rum review by The Ultimate Rum Guide"
"A sip reveals a very smooth yet spicy rum. There is very little burn it tingles on the lips and tongue for a long time. It is a long finish."
