Flor de Caña 12 is a Rum worth bragging about.

Back in 1890, Francisco Alfredo Pellas built a sugarcane plantation and a Rum distillery on the side of an active volcano. People ridiculed him until the virgin batch of rich volcanic soil enhanced Rum reached their lips. Then it was "Don" Francisco's turn to laugh.

125 years later, Flor de Caña Rums produce the highest quality Central American Rums on the flanks of San Cristobal volcano in Chichigalpa, Nicaragua. The company is led by the 5th generation of the Pellas family and their brand, Flor de Caña (meaning “flower of the cane”) has grown to become one of the most recognized Rums in the world. The Flor de Caña line includes eight Rums in their “slow-aged” collection and three ultra-premium Rums.

Flor de Caña 12 Years is aged in average for dozen years in charred oak barrels on site. It's that kind of Rum that is wonderful neat or on ice, while not too expensive, so you can enjoy it in a cocktail. Try it with Orange Curacao and bitters, by the way. This reddish amber wonder won a Gold Medal in 2016 at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and is surely a drink that's making history.

A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. Most popular suggestions are: Rum (the Romani word for potent), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).

Harsh nose, astringent. Flavor matched, spicy and some nuttiness. Felt the kick at the end.

I bought this bottle and my friends loved it! You can taste it just with ice or mixed it with sparkling water or create any cocktail. In my case I just added sparkling water and an orange peel. Delicious! I would buy it again!

Very nice flavor of caramel and spice, with a bit of bite on the back end. Very nice!

Jason,
I think rum starts to tail off in the double digits for age in many cases. They start to get overly sweet. That being said this is still pretty damn good.

Bryan,
Very good tasting rum, but not as good as Zacapa, which has a similar price point.
 
Marvin
Marvin,
Great with Coke. Always drink in Nicaragua.
 
David
David,
For a rum, it lacks the overt sweetness you might expect, and it seemed a bit thin. As others have pointed out it has a very short finish. It is better than say a Bacardi or other well-known rums. Good for sipping.

Good, a little abrasive

Henry,
People love and rave over this bottle. I love everything about the way it looks. I'm a whisky guy but decided to give this a shot. I tried multiple pours and it couldn't win me over. Maybe because I was expecting something like the Ron Zacapa XO (which is a 10 for me). Acceptable for price point but not a huge fan.
