Dry Oaky Eruption.
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.
