In 1890 Francisco Alfredo Pellas built the first distillery of what was to become the Compañía Licorera de Nicaragua at the San Antonio Sugar Mill in Chichigalpa, Nicaragua. Today the company is led by the 5th generation of the Pellas family and their brand Flor de Caña has grown to become one of the most recognised Rums Worldwide. They also own one of the largest aged Rum reserves. Flor de Caña's logo which is present on all bottles (if you look hard enough) is a road, with palm trees on the sides and a chain of volcanoes in the horizon.

Flor de Caña 18YO Centenario Rum is distilled in a continuous column still process and aged in quite small 185-liter American white oak barrels, which previously held Whiskey and Bourbon. Once the Rum reaches maturation it is transferred to large stainless steel tanks for blending with highly purified water in order to lower the alcohol level. It is then bottled after one more filtration.  Flor de Caña 18YO Centenario Rum was awarded Double Gold medals at the 2006 and 2008 at San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

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).

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Colour
Bright mahogany brown.
 
Smell / Nose / Aroma
Let it breathe. Full of rich oak spice, some zesty orange peel, dark brown sugars, dark carame toffee and nutmeg. Also hints of cinnamon, vanilla and anise.
 
Flavour / Taste / Palate
Dry and spicy, with layers of cocoa, dark caramel and spice. A strong oak presence that starts to dominate after a while.
 
Finish
Long, smooth and clean. Presence of walnut, dark chocolate. Oaky, leathery, smokey steals the polish from the finish.
 
Comment
The lack of heavy molasses sweetness makes this rum special.
