Tasty, but not quite great

I’d say it’s maybe a little lower than Appleton 12 Rare Blend for me personally. I’d give it a 6.5 if I could. Not my favorite, but still good.

I tried this rum with 3 cigar pairings over several sessions in a single day.

The first pairing was with a A fuente gran reserva maduro. I found the alcohol to just come to the top of the nose sharply as well as the palate, I also felt it went down a bit fiery in the throat a rarity for a 12 year old rum.

The second pairing was a brick house Maduro a sweeter spicier Nicaraguan cigar seemed to pair much better and the flavors came out a bit more and it seemed sweeter and smoother overall as the cigar paired well with this.

The final pairing was a 7-20-4 Maduro. this was an unmemorable experience and I don't think the pairing helped nor detracted from this experience.

Overall, I would smoke a Brick house cigar maduro wrapper anytime with this as a perfect pairing which enhanced the rum.

On its own this rum I felt was below the bar I was expecting for its age and price point. Its incredibly sharp nose detracted from this. I actually held my nose like a child as I drank this from my snifter. This also was fiery in the throat a rarity for a more aged rum almost comparable to a lower end gold but not quite. Mixed its much better but at the general price of admission I could point you to plantation artisinal or 10+ other rum mixers which are on par or better actually, so I have omitted this from my score.

Overall, I wanted to love this rum, I really did. I have heard so many great things about it. This experience detracts me from this rum line away from trying 18. I think ill stick with other lines for now.

Finally, I was not Flor'd.

Not a bad rum but I do wonder what all the fuss is about to be honest. Very forgettable

Nice rum and somehow it can be compared with Pyrat. Not so sweet and has some kind of herbal touch to it.

Very balanced and conservative rum. No rough edges. Very good choice for Newcomers!

Harsh nose. They have changed the bottle which I think is nicer now.

Caramel, a little woody and fresh grapes. Really opens up with an ice cube.

Price is great for what you get. I don't mind sipping it and I don't mind if my GF splits it with cola.

Smagen af træ - eg - fylder smagen, som bliver tør og lidt kedelig, mangler flere nuancer at spille op imod.

You can easily get away with serving this one as a sipper. Like it's older brother - the 18 year old - it's not that sweet. So if you are into rums like the Diplomatico this might not light your spark.

Le 18 comme le 12 ans d'âge sont de bons représentants des rons, mais ne se démarquent pas. Ils manquent de caractère et de longueur !

Color : Amber
Flavour : Woody and nutty, gentle ripe fruits, sweet spices
Palate : Rich, mature, mid-bodied

A little bit too woody to my opinion, could be match easily with a cigar

Un rhum très (trop?) discret au nez qui séduit en bouche par ses arômes poivrés et sa légèreté. Malheureusement le plaisir est de courte durée et s'estompe très rapidement à peine réhaussée pa rune finale sucrée tout juste perceptible.
