Flor De Cana Gran Reserve 7 is produced in Nicaragua using a three-column still process. Distilled according to a precise recipe, the rum is aged for seven years in charred oak barrels that previously held Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey.
Flor De Cana is part of the Grupo Pellas, Compañia Licorera de Nicaragua, SA. The name, Flor De Cana, means “flower of the sugarcane.
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.
Available full time in Ontario, this is my “usual”. Poured on an ice cube is good, but a little cola or OJ is better.
Picked up a bottle of this at airport duty free and I am rumming while reviewing! Mixing with a little slash of coke and a slice of lemon. Not too sweet, not harsh at all. Recommended as an affordable cabinet rum.
Flor de Cana 7 smooth easy drinking
Every day rum
Keep on shelf to share
Sweet and fairly smooth. Definitely not bad for the price
Smooth rum, enjoyable on the rocks. Too good for mixers, nevertheless quality cuba libres.
Prefer this to Havana 7, and it’s easier to find...
It's an everyday rum, not sweetened, it's good enough to sip neat, doesn't pretend to be something else.
As I want to make drinks and mixes, this was one of my favourite as a basic RumCola. Nothing extra, just plain clear taste.
Non eccelso come i fratelli piú invecchiati ha dalla sua un incredibile rapporto qualità/prezzo
I used to be a captains drinker and after trying this I am a 7 year Flor De Cana and soda with orange drinker. Best tasting rum I have ever tried.
Weak earthy tones typical for Nicaragua, it is diluted version of the flavor found in the 12y and others. However, it is also smoother than 12y which is probably caused by low ABV, but still quite a shock for this price. Ideal party drink.
Reading that this is aged in old jack barrels explains why it’s so good for a seven year old. I’ve had it neat and it was surprisingly pretty good. I think it would be great for a rum punch mixer!
Flor de Cana have many good rums covering various positions on the rum spectrum.
Gran Reserva 7 is one that you can safely have in your liquor cabinet for most uses.
It is smooth enough and has enough flavor to be enjoyed neat, however its cost is low enough that you don't mind someone wanting to add a mixer to it.
This is a very Nice rum to sip and to mix. I tried with muscovoda and it was heaven! Fresh with attitude
Pagaidām netīk, itkā mīksts, bet kaut ka boozigs garsa. Iedos parlpot un japarverte
The Flor de canas are a bit sharp in the flavour, but pure and good.
This one is really a solid rum. Great taste, though a bit bold when mixed with cola than I prefer if I'm having more than 1 drink.
I think at this price point, this is one of the better choices you can make. This was my regular drinking rum for a while, as it just about competes with some of the more expensive rums, but doesn't cost a whole lot of money. This one is much better tasting to me than the 4 year variety, slightly sweet and fairly smooth drinking. I have since replaced this as my regular drinking rum with Plantation 5 Year, but this one is still good.
Absolutely not my taste, bitter, heavy with a unpleasant nose
With some pineapple juice and mint, shaken with ice made for a very tasty treat. Any of the Flor De Cana flavors were masked by the pineapple. Will continue to experiment to bring out the best in this rum.
The 7 year Flor de Cana is a nice step up from their 4 year, both are good dry rums.
Moc dobrej rumik z Nikaragui. Příjemná a vyvážená chuť. Sladká vůně se naštěstí nepropisuje do chuti.
It’s ok. Got a nice agricole freshness to it, and the flowers are pretty well balanced, but on the whole there’s not much going on.
I bought a bottle for $5 in Honduras and even at prices back in the U.S this is still a really good choice for mixing. For those who like drier rums, this could be a decent sipper at a pinch, but not one for those who like sweeter rums.
