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.

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.

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...

EDIT: After having spent 10 days in Nicaragua, I’ve got a better appreciation for this expression. The base distillate from FdC is nothing to write home about, but they really shine with their aged rums, which indicates their barreling process is where it’s at. Their 7 year is a shining example of this; in my opinion, the best balance of flavor, strength and value. The complexity in flavor only increases from aged expressions from here on, with incremental changes imparting more mellowing tones akin to aged bourbons and whiskeys.

7 is best sipped, excellent unmasked in a spirit-forward cocktail and easy on the palate at 35% ABV. I’m unclear if there is dosage or if the barrel is charred, thus imparting sucrose from the caramelized wood, to add sweetness, but it’s literally just a perceptible touch to taste, and completely welcome when compared to Diplomático, Zacapa or Dictador. On that note, it’s an even better value and closer to a less adulterated example of this style aged rum. Totally unpretentious and versatile, 7 is a great starting point for getting into rum, experimenting with cocktails, cooking, pairing and sharing. It outdoes itself as an entry level rum and exemplar of Nicaraguan rum.

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.
