Created in commemoration of Flor de Caña's 130th anniversary, this rum is a special 90 proof luxury rum carefully crafted by Flor de Caña's Maestro Ronero, Tomas Cano, who has been perfecting his art for more than 35 years. El Maestro hand selected 20-year-old small bourbon barrels from the Family Reserve, which have been aging without artificial ingredients or added sugar at the base of Nicaragua's most active volcano.
Immediate aroma of pineapple and oak. Tastes of oak, bright fruit and vanilla with chocolate...almost like toffee. Super smooth and warming. Easy on the palate.
Found this and loved the 18 year so we had to try it. The flavor profile is a little stronger, but still very yummy! Let it sit a few after you pour it and it will get very smooth and enjoyable to sip on!
Wonderful nose with notes of toffee, pineapple, and oak. Beautiful combination of vanilla, caramel, spice, and a chocolaty aftertaste on the tongue. A pleasant smooth finish with notes of oak and toffee with a hint of burn. Overall, wonderful rum. This is a bottle best savored!
either you, 1. need psychiatric help or 2. have a lot of disposable income to spend on rum. Crystal clear deep amber color. Aroma vanilla and raisin with a bit of alcohol burn. This is a 45% ABV rum but even neat the added little extra alcohol volume is not that noticeable and on the rocks.. WOW!!!. Perfect amount of sweetness and a bit dry (not as dry as most bajan rums but still a dry rum). Fantastic on ALL levels.
At 45% ABV, my initial impression was that this rum was going to burn. But has a smoothness to it like a good bourbon (meaning the higher ABV doesn't matter when the quality is right. Delicious.
After reading some reviews, i decide to overlook the 25 years and grab this one, instead. At the same price, 110 bucks the 25 and 108 bucks this one, i thought that 20 years old and 45% alcohol would spice things up better! It quickly overcomes all of your senses. Its smell is strong, woody, fruity. Taste wise, it is heavenly. The strong burn is just right and the extremely long aftertaste that fades very slowly, is to die for! I feel sorry for opening it, since it is a collector's item that cannot be replicated, but i promise to cherish it, enjoying it well! Maybe i will consider giving a shot at 25y too, some time in the future.
Nose is solid vanilla but burn is too much for this much age sweetness is balanced not too sweet like other flor de cañas cool for the collection the 18 and 25 are better
The nose is a mix of vanilla, citrus, and maybe a little banana. The alcohol is not overwhelming, and it is not bitter. In fact, you can smell the sweetness. The color is a deep honey gold. The 12 yr is one of my go-to rums for a casual sip. It is much lighter flavored than this anniversary rum. It is medium bodies, meaning the feel in the mouth is slightly denser than water, but it is not heavy. The flavors when the sip is held in the mouth are nicely balanced. One can taste the bitter from the bourbon casks, and it will build if you wait, but when you release it, a host of complex flavors emerge: Orange, vanilla, coconut, a hint of lime, and a hint of cherry from the bourbon casks. The finish is bold and rough as the alcohol blooms. The alcohol leaves the mouth a little numb, so it settles into a gentle memory of the component flavors. It would seem rude to mix this one, and I cannot imagine it would play nice with anything other than colas. On the other hand, it is a good companion for nuts or tortilla chips. While I really like this one, it is just a little too bourbony, so I give it an 8. I would even give it 8.5, but not a 9.
Mycket len till att börja med sen blir det starkare men bara positiv smak. Ingen spritsmak och mycket smaker.
