Flor de Caña
Appearance / Color
Bright mahogany brown.
Smell / Nose / Aroma
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.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
Dry and spicy, with layers of cocoa, dark caramel and spice. A strong oak presence that starts to dominate after a while.
Long, smooth and clean. Presence of walnut, dark chocolate. Oaky, leathery, smokey steals the polish from the finish.
The lack of heavy molasses sweetness makes this rum special.
