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.
I've never had the sensation of a spicy pop before like I had with this Flor de Cana. It's interesting, but the fun wears off quickly and it simply turns too spicy with little remaining flavoring. Short finish with an earthy pine type 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.
This is a great every day rum. It is good by itself or as a mixer. Very reasonably priced for the quality.
starts out pretty good. not so sweet as many others. but something bitter in the after taste which I dislike. i had the 5yo and was given the 7yo but cannot really keep them apart from each other. price is key here both 5 and 7yo are very cheap.
Very nice mixer rum £23 online at Amazon next day comparable to havana club 7. Not a sipper by a long shot but makes a wonderful rim and coke or dark and stormy
This rum is nice and will work, but if you can get the older rums from Flor de Cana
Sweet and smooth for an entry sipping rum but not too sweet to have with a splash of cola. The best at this price point.
N- Muddy and earthiness that carries the drifting scents of sea soaked mushy wood log, distant bonfire with mineral and brine, dehydrated pineapple and apple. Unique identity does come thru at bsic abv. (20/25)
P- Liquorice and cola mix. Exotic sour mango with dried apricot, apple and sweet wood smokes, burnt cinnamon, caramel emerged with more cola. (20/25)
F- Medium-long, semi dry with charred wood and fruits in balanced. Tinge of spiciness for a warming finish. (20/25)
Balanced:- Reasonably complex and surely can be better and broader if at higher abv. Just manage to float on a thin line at 40%. (19/25)
Weighted Rate:- 79pt

Guter Rum zum Mixen. Sehr trocken. Auf gar keinen Fall zum Pur trinken.
