For roughly $23 for a 1L you get one amazing rum. Good on it's own, the rocks, or with Cola. Mild smell, mild but good taste. Simply delicious.
This rum has a beautiful dark golden colour and a nice mild (not harsh) smell. The flavour is rich, with sweet and smoky tones. Makes an excellent rum and coke!
Excelente ron para mezclar .. ron con coca una excelente opción, grata sorpresa. Ron un poco dulce y con poco sabor a madera comparado con el resto de los rones de flor de caña.
This was a good rum. I don't LOVE it, but nothing to complain about. Good flavor, nice finish. Good with Coke.
For a 4 year old rum it is good. I like the 12 year rum they offer a lot better.
Not smooth enough for a Sipping Rum, but ideal for mixing with coke
A good start for tasting rums in Nicaragua. It's very smooth and you can drink it straight up or mixed.
Just before tasting this rum I had tasted and reviewed the Flor de Cana Gran Reserva 7-year.
First off, there's very little difference between the two.
The aroma is just about the same however this is a lighter amber...almost a liquid golden hue.
The flavor is complex as well. Just not as complex and smooth as the 7-year. But close. I pick up on the initial hint of sweetness and vanilla and then the oak flavor. A dry finish as well. Just not quite as smooth at the 7-year.
I give both rums a 7 but it is more along the lines of a 7.75 for the 7-year as opposed to a 7.0 for the 4 year. A tad too rough to be a sipping rum for most but a great mixing rum.
This is one of the best dry rums you can buy and is amazing value for money..... I drank a lot of this is Canada and will continue to drink it jn the future
I was interested in trying this because it had a score of 9 (as of this review) and only cost 10.99 (K&L Wines 2016). I tried this side by side with the Flor de Cana 18, and it came very close. However, I'm not a huge fan of the Flor de Cana rums.
Relatively dry, with notes of spice, oak, almond, and caramel. Not bad for the money, but certainly not a 9 in my opinion.
This is by far my favorite lower end rum. I drink it neat and sometimes on the rocks. I did a blind taste test with friends and they couldn't believe it was only aged 4 years. This is a great rum for under $25.
Medium amber in color. Nice and smooth on the rocks. Finish is a little short. Flavor mid range. Good value in its price range.
