Tasting Notes
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.
 
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.

The origin of Flor de Caña dates back to 1890 at the base of Nicaragua’s most active volcano, the San Cristobal. The fertility of its soil, the volcanic climate to which the barrels are exposed during the aging process and the enriched volcanic water contribute in creating a singularly smooth and deliciously balanced rum.

Flor de Caña is naturally aged in small white oak bourbon barrels sealed with plantain leaves, producing a distinguished and elegant rum with tropical notes. This uninterrupted aging process gives the rum its remarkable amber color and rich flavor without the aid of accelerants, unnatural additives and with zero sugar content.

This is a stunning, 18-year-old brilliant amber ultra-premium rum that is full-bodied, with a rich complexity of flavors and a smooth finish that lingers on the palate. Almost two decades go into its production, and the tradition and artisanal excellence behind it can be savored in every drop. “Among the Finest Products in the World” by the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

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,
Very smooth rum. Not a hard alcohol taste. Almost certainly a nice aroma, no sting to the aromatics. Got decently hammered.
