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.
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.
My first experience with flor was the 18 year, so I'm a little biased in my rating. Carries the same smoothness I know flor de cana for, however it lacks the fruity tones found in the longer aged bottles. Simple vanilla and banana lightly grace the tongue before washing to a dark chocolate throat with a burn.
Docela me prekvapuje to vysoky hodnoceni. Me teda nechutnal vubec.
A great sipping rum served on the rocks. Also lovely with a splash of cola. A smooth rum with a nice, simple and not too complex flavoring, which I like. Not too sweet but not too strong either. The bite of alcohol doesn't hit the tongue until after swallowing. It also has a lovely looking bottle which will stand out in your cabinet.
This is a great rum! And the price is very good for the quality. Rich and smooth with some sweetness. Great on ice or mixed with Coke or your favorite mixer. I actually like it mixed with bai coconut or coconut/pineapple!
A nice smooth butterscotch taste, but only the single flavor, no real complexity.
Smooth rum with a bit of a kick...for those who prefer sharper taste.
N- Penetrating soft minted chocolate with scents of woody nuance, green barley, husky and clove filled the body, sits on a layer of rich mineral. (19/25)
P- Much consistent with the aroma, milky bitter-minted cocoa with fruit zest, nice zings of metal and mineral follow by seasoned wood extracts for a fine depth. (20/25)
F- Short-medium, mellow and rounded.... would also means it doesn't leave much impression at the end. Faded away rather quick at weak strength. Minty sweet with crusted pink peppercorn. (18/25)
Balanced:- Active aroma with decent palate, but lack stamina to finish the race. (19/25)
Weighted Rate:- 76pt

Ambra dark,fruit and nut bit too few aroma.
Definitely not sweet. I would say dry.
What is very important in time of sweet rums everywhere. Good matured feeling, very good bottle.
It is very good rum, but in need to sit min 10min in glas, better steamed one.
Taste is just wooden, no bad aftertaste, but in my opinion it needs a liitle sugar to add.
I´we improoved it wit 3/4 teaspoon of sugar and it really helped a lot, still not sweet, but smoother.
P.S. use cane sugar ofcourse.
I wasn't sure about this one at first. Poured neat, there are hints of toffee and caramel apple, but also a bit of a medicinal quality to the aroma. It has a light mouth-feel, but a full flavor of rum a caramel. Very little sweetness, but also very little burn. This would pair nicely with a Fuente Maduro.
Placut la gust, miros si culoare, aromat, cred ca este pus in valoare doar daca este consumat sec.
Silk and smooth taste. Caramel and honey taste. Good finish. This one was a gift from a friend. Realy enjoy it.
Περίμενα κάτι καλύτερο..... Δε ξέρω γιατί..... Θες από τις καλές κριτικές..... Θες από το εντυπωσιακό μπουκάλι..... Δε ξέρω.... Απλά αδιάφορο, με έντονη αίσθηση αλκοόλ και χωρίς ιδιαίτερη γεύση και άρωμα..... Πολλές καλλίτερες επιλογές στα 30€
After reading some of the reviews here I was expecting something on par with a 5-7 years old Havana Club, but mellower/drier. And that is exactly what I had, but much much more mellower.
What I had was a rum that lacked flavour (almost seemed diluted with water), lacked sweetness, lacked character... The aroma was like a decent aged rum but quite diluted.
For $40CAD at the LCBO, splurge another $2 and get a much better Appleton Estate 12.
Not m'y type. No punch or spécial taste that attracted me. But still à good quality rum tough
Nice and complex rum with a lot of layers to discover.
Disponible à la SAQ. Ne deviendra pas un classique dans ma collection mais n'en fait pas un mauvais choix.
El empaque y la botella en realidad denotan el contenido premium.
El Ron es seco con un predominante sabor amaderado que termina en notas suaves y dulces.
Jemny rum, netrha, neni ani moc sladky, je dobre vyvazeny a v chuti je citit nadech triny, kokosu a dreva.
Manque de concentration et manque de complexité. décevant pour un 12 ans
Rum, který se dá jen tak popíjet, ale není ničím zvláštní.
The Flora 12 is a well made Rum, but is a bit smokey and not as smooth as I generally like. Evidently a favorite of many...not bad, but many I like more.
