Tasty, but not quite great
If you're new get this rum.It's a great introduction to sipping and aged rum. Instead of adding water or ice to help you appreciate this, try leaving some in a glass for a few hours or overnight before consuming.
I wouldn't drink this one straight either. I'd personally step down to the 4yr Extra Dry if I wanted a mixer, or I'd step up to the 12/18yr old, if I wanted a more complex sipper.
Okay to start I like the bottle of Flor De Cana, its simple but that is what makes it nice so its a good addition to a collection. Flor De Cana is a nice amber color in the bottle. Opening it smells like raspberries to be honest, raspberries some faint cask smell and that's about it, no real alcohol smell. In a glass it smells more like alcohol and that's about it. So sipping is rough its harsh upfront bite and then stops and then gives a hello im back again bite. Hard to zone in on a flavour when being kicked in the balls then helped back up and kicked right again by the guy who helped you. Its very dry alcohol, the cask taste is there but not in the extent of woodsiness that I enjoy. Some sweetness but nothing bold. In all honest its a super simple rum. A harsh simple rum, wouldn't recommend sipping. in diet coke it keeps much of its simpleness but has a nice amount of sweetness with a some bitterness in the aftertaste (which some could enjoy). I would rate this rum higher but there are better options for its price that have far surpassed it in taste smoothness and complexity.
I have trouble understanding how this rum can have such a good rating. I found this rum almost undrinkable, even mixed. Overly strong attack, and even very strong over time, even to the point of bad after-taste. Perhaps I got a bad bottle ?
"The finish is overall quite bitter almost like dark chocolate."
