Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
Its subtly complex and certainly dry, with a dusty oak presence and a bit of a soured finish. As with the younger expressions, I like it best with fruit juices.
This was a pleasant surprise. Very smooth but not to much caramel. I'll drink it again.
Dry and smoky. Not what i typically look for in a rum.
I had this in a restaurant. I was disappointed on the mediocre taste. The nose just reveals the bad quality. It is strong and unbalanced. Alcohol feels to prominent and the flavor lacks in notes hints and taste. The sweetens is present but not subtle. it is a disaster. do not try it.
Juste bon pour mixer, ce rhum en lui même n'a rien et n'apporte rien...
Très faible odeur et peu de goût en bouche. Mais un peu meilleur que le 4 ans
This rum is pretty good for the price! This is about the extent of sipping rum for my taste
This rum has a classic amber hue and a very nice aroma which does not lead one to think of molasses. Kind of a minor paradox.
The flavor does have some of that molasses taste to it but still keeps itself on the dry side. A hint of sweetness initially combined with a nice vanilla flavor swiftly revealing oak undertones and some pepperiness. Surprisingly mild warmth rather than a burn. The finish is dry and has some of the oak tannin bitterness which fades slowly. There are clearly other flavors present but I'm not able to distinguish them adequately. For a 7-year rum this is rather smooth. Borderline sipping rum for me but I recommend trying it as a sipper as well as a mixer. Definitely a rum to have in one's cabinet. Complex and delightful.
Similar to other aged. Very good with coke or other mixes. Smooth, sweet and creamy Oak flavors.

Un rhum vraisemblablement non trafiqué, mais dilué à 40%, d'un âge véritable de 7 ans.
Le prix est peu élevé, et le rendu correct : des notes légères de vanille, un peu de bois, quelques fruits secs et une légère pointe amère.
Pas le rhum du siècle, mais plutôt simple à boire, à utiliser pur, avec des glaçons ou pour les cocktails.
I've drunk bucket loads of the 7 yr. old Flor de Cana. It is cheap enough to mix (around 22 euro's here), it goes extremely well with cola, yet is good enough to sip. It might be the most versatile rum in the world. It fits racous parties as much as quiet late drinking on your own. I've always loved the warm nutty, buttery caramel and vanilla notes in Flor de Cana, though it's not too sweet and I was relieved to see that testresults showed it has no or very little sugar added. I also had the pleasure of drinking it in its home country Nicaragua where it is a staple for young hipsters as well as old grannies drinking in their rocking chairs. Also it is delightfully cheap over there. When I left Nicaragua I was sweating Flor de Cana Gran Reserva.
This rum is good yet I would not choose it primarily for sipping neat due to it's slightly edgy character. An ice cube may help to dilute the alcohol feeling (even though me and my friends drank it mostly neat and enjoyed it). I don't mix so I can't say how it works there, but it must work as an exceptionally great mixer as it is not very sweet and remains strong. So you can sip it if you are ready for some edge, but within Flor de Caña I would definitely reach for the wonderful 12 year old.
Realy good taste. You should try it. Don't suit everyone but I realy like it.
Belle couleur. Bon rhum avec du cola mais je suis pas un super fan des flor de cana a part bien sur le 18 ans....25 ans a venir
It has the oaky finish and a little harsh because of the young age,but it is an excellent daily sipper,which won't hurt your finances too much. Nice Nicaraguan,i prefer the 12yo tho
Dry and balance esay to enjoy this rum on the rocks, but is not complex enough to justify sipping. Better for Cuba Libres and mixed drinks.
Had it straight and in rum coke
Nice smooth and round but prefer it with cokctails
For me, nothing special about this rum...pretty flat..drinkable with coke..will have to try another Flor.
De 12j is beter om puur te drinken. maar de 7j is zeker niet slecht is nog beter als je er een heel klein beetje cola bij doe 2 cl is goe
Good every occasion rum. Good sweet taste, not too strong. Good on the rocks or Cuba libre.
On ne se trompe pas avec ce rhum. Bon rapport qualité et prix. Je l'achète souvent. Un petit gout de noisette grillée de caramel.
inte min kopp te.........
Good value for money. Well balanced. With coke the rum taste is very subtle. Not very complex. 6.5/10
