Easily consumable in a bind
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.
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.
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.
