Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is a filtered 4 yr rum with the body of a light rum and higher abv than FdC’s aged companions. It’s harsh on the after taste, and has little flavor carried over from the aging process - just a touch of molasses on the nose - so it’s really unpleasant to sip, but better as a shooter and best suited as a mixer with fresh juices or other other applications that mask its overall straight alcohol flavor.
Rating it this high because it is really smooth. But not much flavor and probably only good for a mixer. Since flavor profile is so neutral and it is damn smooth, this would go well in pretty much anything. Consuming any other way, besides just to get drunk, is not advisable.
Sirve bastante bien para mesclar, de lo contrario su sabor quema bastante!!
Enjoyed a bottle of Flor de Cana Ultra Lite 4y old rum while vacationing in Costa Rica. Easily available at most local grocery stores for $14 a bottle. Mediocre bottle and label design. Pure alcohol to the nose and palate. This is a dry light rum. Strong burn at the end, so better mix this one with your favorite soda.
Its a good option to drink in a night club, its a good rum for the Cubas libres.
este ron excelente para preparar mojitos de paladar fuerte y como todo ron blanco excelente para mezclar
One of my early rums as I ventured away from Bacardi. It mixed well for me at the time, but I don't know if my tastes have changed enough to change the rating.
Un ron que sirve para combinados como su hermano el extra Dry
Got served this in a drink in Nicaragua. Good times.
Une odeur d'alcool, un goût.... D'alcool... Rien de bien impressionnant... Ok pour mix
If making good drinks is your thing this is the rum for you!
I prefer the extra dry, but if you do not like dry spirits this may work better. Ideal to mix or even a shot.
In the Hunter S. Thompson book "Rum Diary" the characters frequently meet in the back area of a run down cafe, a bottle of rum in the center of the table in the sweltering heat. Its hard to imagine doing this with a cheap white rum, and if it were instead Flor de Cana's 4 year Extra Lite I could understand being able to not just tolerate the above scene but enjoy it.
Such is the drinking pleasure of this rum. It is complex with a great deal of congener flavors, easily drinkable with just the right balance of heat. I keep this rum in a flask in my PFD while racing small dinghy boats such as the Laser. Other competitors often ask for the flask to be passed and it rarely returns to the dock unempty.
