Let it breathe. Full of rich oak spice, some zesty orange peel, dark brown sugars, dark caramel toffee and nutmeg. Also hints of cinnamon, vanilla and anise.

Dry and spicy, with layers of cocoa, dark caramel and spice. A strong oak presence that starts to dominate after a while.

Matt,
This one took some time for me to appreciate, but what a delicious rum. I love that it's free of color and flavor additives. It's a pure/dry rum with an incredible amount of depth. On the palate it's pure oak with a hint of caramel and vanilla. With a drop of water or a small ice cube, delicious toasted banana and vanilla notes come out. A pure sipping rum that bourbon and scotch lovers could easily get into.

Jason,
Starts with a very light, silky nose. It’s a very mellow caramel taste with a stronger chocolate finish. It’s good, and extremely smooth, but I had thought there would be more to it.

Mat,
I though this smelled very fresh and citrusy, with loads of lemon notes and some vanilla. Quite fruity on the palate too but this just didn't really impress. Much better rums out there at this price point.

Patrick,
My single favorite rum. I love this one so much. a perfect sipping rum and because of the price you're not bothered mixing it in a little cola with alot of lime. So so very good for such an amazing prize. I have a bottle opened and unopened always.

Smells and tastes like straight rubbing alcohol. Not good.
 
Valentin
Valentin,
Caramel and a hint of tropical fruits on the nose, dry and a little spicy on the tongue with a not very lasting finish. Pretty decent but nothing exceptional in any way
 
Tyler
Tyler,
At the 18’s price point, this is the best rum by flor de Cana. The 25 has more flavor but it’s over priced. It’s just not a $100 a bottle better rum! Go with the 18, it’s delicious and so smooth.

Very complex. Excellent straight or on the rocks.

Marvin,
Sweet but enough bite to drink alone. No ice? No problem.
 
Richard
Richard,
I love this rum. Only slightly sweet with a touch of cinnamon. Half a shot every night is a perfect way to end the day.

Not as smooth as I thought it would be. OK, but I've had better.

Russell,
Oh my gosh! The best rum I've had prior to this was Sailor Jerry. That swill is rubbish compared to this! The best part is it's not overly sweet. What a find!
 
Nathan
Nathan,
This was very very smooth. My wife can't really drink anything straight up. But this, she could. It was smooth without being meek and mild. Lots of velvet flavor. Definitely a favorite now, we will be keeping this stocked. Thank you for introducing us to this one.

Ken,
I just received this in the mail and was anxious to try it. Very smooth with a nice sweetness with similar in Carmel and orange on the tongue and an Oak nose. This makes a very nice sipping rum and I would highly recommend it
 
Zachary
Zachary,
Very smooth rum. Not a hard alcohol taste. Almost certainly a nice aroma, no sting to the aromatics. Got decently hammered.
