My rum tasting began 15 years ago with Flor de Cana 4, 5 and 7 year old bottles purchased from a gas station while road tripping in Central America. Great memories, but the fact is that these are not neat sipping rums. They will however make a very good rum-and-coke, and especially if enjoyed in its natural habitat.

As with most white rums, I don't really get it. It's clean and alcoholic, like what you remember vodka as being like from high school parties but with the tiniest bit of ester-y funk and without feeling like you just drank rocket fuel. I suppose you could say it's good for what it is, if by "good" we mean "doesn't make you question what you are doing with your life." It would make a very admirable well rum, but that's about it.

Admittedly it's really only being marketed as a mixer, but there are better choices out there. I've tried it in a mai tai along with a high-quality Spanish style column still rum (in my case, Ron del Barrilito 3-Star), and in that context it's pretty good. It doesn't really add anything to the flavor profile, though; it just extends the length of time until you have to buy another bottle of the column still. It's like adding sawdust to hamburger meat.

I suppose at a $20 price point it's decent, but for the same price you could get a fantastic bottle of Plantation 3 Star that fulfills the same purpose as this but with a ton more individuality and character.

I love all of the Flor de Cana line! Not to dry or sweet with a little astringent quality to it. Young aged rum that has developed a flavor portfolio that works well from nose to back of throat. Much better than Bacardi for sure.

For the price, I am thoroughly impressed. This is very drinkable rum which I was not expecting. I was expecting a white rum I could use as a mixer but this is very drinkable even as a sipping rum done neat.

N - The word "pungent" comes to mind, but not in a bad way. Hard to make out much besides sugarcane and ethanol.
P - Oddly enough, it tastes like sugar without actually coming across as sweet. Also notes of clipped grass and an odd butteriness.
F - Nothing new really shows up, but the flavor lingers.

It's like this rum tries to be offensive, but just can't bring itself to be so. It's a bit astringent, but certainly pleasant enough! Definitely not a goto sipper, but plays very nicely with others in cocktails!

It's not going to excite your tastebuds, nor are you going to sip it neat but if you need something to mix, this is a great rum.
