Můj první starší rum, takže hodnocení je možná trochu nadsazené, ale dobrý dost.

Smooth, full-bodied taste with the usual FdC notes of vanilla and caramel. Excellent!

A great choice: not pricy, still great complex flavor. Sweet, but not as sweet as for example El Dorado 12y.
Very nice on the tongue, great aftertaste ("right" amount of sting).

With iPhones its so easy to read a few reviews online when searching out a new rum at the LCBO. that is exactly what made me buy it. first try was straight up, to be honest i found it one of the harshest rum's I've had to date.
next a friend and i tried it with coke, that was very good. It will be my go to rum with cola.

Ein schöner feiner Rum. Sanft im Mund. Ein Hauch von Trockenbeeren rundet den Geschmack ab. Kann schon pur getrunken werden.

Ok Rom.
Men ikke rigtig nogen eftersmag.
18 års så meget bedre.

Flor de Caña seems to seesaw in profiles. After the 7 yr, this one friends to heavier wood notes. Quite smooth and enjoyable. Best chilled.

I tried this rum with 3 cigar pairings over several sessions in a single day.

The first pairing was with a A fuente gran reserva maduro. I found the alcohol to just come to the top of the nose sharply as well as the palate, I also felt it went down a bit fiery in the throat a rarity for a 12 year old rum.

The second pairing was a brick house Maduro a sweeter spicier Nicaraguan cigar seemed to pair much better and the flavors came out a bit more and it seemed sweeter and smoother overall as the cigar paired well with this.

The final pairing was a 7-20-4 Maduro. this was an unmemorable experience and I don't think the pairing helped nor detracted from this experience.

Overall, I would smoke a Brick house cigar maduro wrapper anytime with this as a perfect pairing which enhanced the rum.

On its own this rum I felt was below the bar I was expecting for its age and price point. Its incredibly sharp nose detracted from this. I actually held my nose like a child as I drank this from my snifter. This also was fiery in the throat a rarity for a more aged rum almost comparable to a lower end gold but not quite. Mixed its much better but at the general price of admission I could point you to plantation artisinal or 10+ other rum mixers which are on par or better actually, so I have omitted this from my score.

Overall, I wanted to love this rum, I really did. I have heard so many great things about it. This experience detracts me from this rum line away from trying 18. I think ill stick with other lines for now.

Finally, I was not Flor'd.
