A sugar-free 25-year old, ultra premium rum that is sustainably produced (Carbon Neutral & Fair Trade certified). From a 5th generation family estate, it is naturally aged without artificial ingredients, distilled 100% with renewable energy and KOSHER certified. A full-bodied rum with a long and smooth finish that lingers in the palate. Best enjoyed neat or on a rock, and paired with 70% cocoa chocolate.
Great color and smell. Caramel, banana and vanilla on the nose, not a lot of alcohol smell. Well balanced, smooth, sweet but not overpowering, and very easy to sip on. One of the few rums I actually feel bad about putting an ice cube or anything else with it.
I can't say I'd pay 80 a bottle for it again, but not because it isn't worth it. I'm just a cheapo that can't always shoot the moon. I generally go for something that I can live with that has enough complexity to comfortably call a sipping rum. This was one of my occasional upper echelon buys that I treat myself to rarely.
Don't regret it a bit.
This Rum in a bit expensive, but it makes us happy.
It's aroma with hints of butter caramel, vanilla, dark chocolate, and also nuts.
It was good enough for Flor de Cana18, but this one is more rich, much higher level.
I suppose this top shelf rum is one of the best. This one is not for Zacapa lovers, due to the fact it's unsweetened.
Aroma is lil oaky, rich fruit (pear, apple skin), burnt coco, raw blanched cocoa nib
Taste is a bit floral, with little acid bite of fresh coffee.
Density is perfect for sipping, golden and amber color is magnificent
This one is a pearl from the rum world.
Especially recomended with nicaraguan cigar (Oliva)
This is the rum that started my collection. Truly a benchmark for me to compare the others with.
I’m so afraid to run out I keep an extra full bottle in reserve.
This one is somewhat hard to find in my area. Having had rotten luck with their 18 Year, I had been reluctant to splurge on this one until a few months ago. I would imagine that a lot of the cost goes into the elegant gift box.
Well, after the first sip, it is easy to declare it as the finest rum that one has ever tried. Then as more air gets into the bottle, that initial WOW-factor diminishes, but without degrading the rum. I will buy it again when I am in a splurging mood and will take this one any day over any Foursquare ECS rum. Those have become nearly impossible to find. At least this one pops up every now and then on the shelves.
Sugar: estimated at 15 GPL. I found this rum to be sweeter than any of the other rums in the Flor de Cana lineup and I like my rums in the 15 to 20 GPL range.
It's my opinion that this is the All Star rum in the Flor de Cana lineup. Can't help myself, it's World Series time of the year. You will find this to be a perfectly balanced mixture of oak, vanilla, caramel, with a hint of smoke, spice and maybe a touch of leather in your glass. Smooth on entry then an explosion of the flavors mentioned. All of this is followed by a nice long warm aftertaste. Note: Let this breath a bit before sipping. This rum is in the same league as the Abuelo Centura and not surprisingly it's the same price. Save this rum for special occasions or it will be gone before you know it.
Everything I love about the 18-year-old, just taken up a notch. Nothing can touch it's smoothness and flavor.
