Well... I am surprised this site rates the new 25 FdC higher than this one. To me the 25 is great and a logical step up from the 18 within FdC's regular product range, but the 21 centenario is a one off, with a very distinct character, and even better. I was lucky enough to stumble upon one of the very last of those gorgeous blue ceramic bottles in a liquor store in Honduras. It stayed on my shelf for a couple of years until I had a special occasion to open it. I wasn't dissapointed. This rum makes me want to sing, it is simply vibrant. Alive. Predominantly I get a lot of apple, or candied apple, raisins, pears and other ripe fruits. But it doesn't taste as sugary jam/jelly like the Zacapa 23. It's much more adult in taste. I have yet to encounter a better bottle.
Close to perfect. Medium dark colour. Light nose but a hint of molasses. Full body with no burn. Again a light molasses flavour with a bit of caramel. No strong spices. An excellent sipper.
Hiding away in its purple pouch was this gem of a rum that I tried at the famous Rum Bar in the Whitsunday Isles in North Queensland recently..
What a treat.. unlike any rum I have ever tasted. Straw like in colour this smells and tastes of apples and pears as mentioned in another rating.. very unusual.
Its quite dry as all FDC rums are , no added sugars etc ? Tastes naturally sweet to me with a wonderful pastry note flowing through it.. almost like a fine cognac or brandy. A 15 year old commemorative rum in a beautiful bottle.. if you find this rare gem then buy it. I simply loved it. I have an unopened bottle of the 25 at home and if its anywhere as good as this im in for a treat in the future !
Le Flor de Caña Centenario 21 est d'une douceur exquise. Un rhum qui semble sans ajout d'arôme. Idéal pour une soirée sans fin. Il serait facile d'en abuser.
I was lucky to get this one.
I think this is great rum. Very smooth and deep taste.
It's closer to old Flor de Cana and Mombacho than the current Flor de Cana.
Flor de Cana 21 year old was initially tasted at the Flor de Cana distillery in Chichigalpa Nicaragua and the initial feeling was much more closer to a high end cognac instead of a sweet and flavorful aged rum. It is very smooth and has hardly any afterburn, but it is very dry for an aged rum. If you like cognac, you will absolutely fall in love with this rum. This rum is nearly impossible to find in the US and comes in a fancy looking purple velvet pouch.
este ron de suave sabor y con notas dulces me hizo recordar lo hermosa que es la vida de cuerpo aterciopelado uno de los grandes de mi cava
its content, however, leaves a little more to be desired. Flor de cana produces fine rums so the expectations were quite high and perhaps that was the reason why I was a bit disappointed. Still a very fine rum albeit a bit overpriced (perhaps because of the very nice looking bottle).
Disclaimer: I am not a scotch drinker.
I saved this rum for several years, returning from Roatan with it in my travel bag after an outstanding dive trip. This is where (in 2010) I was first introduced to the Flor de Cana brand, truly enjoying the 12 yr with the shop owner. I was quite excited to have this limited edition bottle and 21 yr blended rum, but alas was a little disappointed in the tasting. Lighter in body colour than the 12, there are strong barrel notes with definite peat and straw characters. Found the alcohol levels higher than others as well. Now that its' been opened, but only slightly tasted, I'll be looking for other comments from local rum associates.
The limited bottle and pouch (throw back to Crown sacks) are a nice piece to the collection.
