Flor de Caña Centenario 12-Year rum is distilled in a continuous column still process, then rests for 12 years in small American white oak barrels that previously held whiskey and bourbon.
Flor de Caña was founded in 1890 by Francisco Alfredo Pellas at the San Antonio Sugar Mill, in Chichigalpa, Nicaragua. The company remains headed by the Pellas family to this day and harvests the molasses and sugarcane used to create their rum from fields adjacent to the distillery in Chichigalpa.
Mi-corsé et plus sec que ce qu'on attendrait, il révèle en bouche des saveurs de clou de girofle, de chocolat noir et de fruits séchés, menant à une finale chaleureuse de longueur moyenne. excellent rapport qualité/prix.
Tried the 7yr old and the 18 yr old and wasn’t impressed by either. The 12 yr old though is a quality sipper. Smooth and tasty, albeit not overly complex.
Since the price of this rum is pretty cheap, I was expecting a cheap taste. But no, I was really pleasently surprised! This is good! It's really sweet on the taste and you feel the oak flavor. A nice rum to sip neat and a very good value for your money, just like the El Dorado 12 years.
Great smell, nuts and fruits.
Light sweetness, and a long after taste.
Nice balance going on, not to dry or sweet. Great aromas on the nose. Worth ago!
In dutch we would say Pittaaagh. Its spicy its a Nice burning feeling. Its like a Little fire in your mouth with no fireman around
J'aime bien l'équilibre entre le goût boisé et la saveur de caramel.
Je le bois sans glace et sans tracas!
Goed betaalbare rum met fijne smaak. Eerste keer uit Nicaragua meegenomen, in Nl ook goed verkrijgbaar.
7 davam jenom proto, ze je o chlub horsi nez 18 leta verze. Neznamena to, ze je to spatny rum, prave naopak. Je pravda, ze milovnici cukrovych bomb ho nejspis neoceni.
Pekne zakulacena vyvazena chut. Spojeni melasy a duboveho sudu v prijemne dlouhem dokonceni.
Stejne jako 18 leta verze potrebuje alespon 10-15 minut ve sklenicce, nez se projevi jeho charakter.
This is very nice rum, but... If you would like more taste, more aroma, more everything, you should then consider 18-Years old Flor de Cana.
Still not bad at all...
i'l be back with a real review with full details. But i want to drink an entire second bottle before reviewing it seriously. lets say that the more i drink this, the less i want anything else.
This is a borderline rum: barely sippable but a good mixer
My first experience with flor was the 18 year, so I'm a little biased in my rating. Carries the same smoothness I know flor de cana for, however it lacks the fruity tones found in the longer aged bottles. Simple vanilla and banana lightly grace the tongue before washing to a dark chocolate throat with a burn.
Docela me prekvapuje to vysoky hodnoceni. Me teda nechutnal vubec.
A great sipping rum served on the rocks. Also lovely with a splash of cola. A smooth rum with a nice, simple and not too complex flavoring, which I like. Not too sweet but not too strong either. The bite of alcohol doesn't hit the tongue until after swallowing. It also has a lovely looking bottle which will stand out in your cabinet.
This is a great rum! And the price is very good for the quality. Rich and smooth with some sweetness. Great on ice or mixed with Coke or your favorite mixer. I actually like it mixed with bai coconut or coconut/pineapple!
A nice smooth butterscotch taste, but only the single flavor, no real complexity.
Smooth rum with a bit of a kick...for those who prefer sharper taste.
N- Penetrating soft minted chocolate with scents of woody nuance, green barley, husky and clove filled the body, sits on a layer of rich mineral. (19/25)
P- Much consistent with the aroma, milky bitter-minted cocoa with fruit zest, nice zings of metal and mineral follow by seasoned wood extracts for a fine depth. (20/25)
F- Short-medium, mellow and rounded.... would also means it doesn't leave much impression at the end. Faded away rather quick at weak strength. Minty sweet with crusted pink peppercorn. (18/25)
Balanced:- Active aroma with decent palate, but lack stamina to finish the race. (19/25)
Weighted Rate:- 76pt

Ambra dark,fruit and nut bit too few aroma.
Definitely not sweet. I would say dry.
What is very important in time of sweet rums everywhere. Good matured feeling, very good bottle.
It is very good rum, but in need to sit min 10min in glas, better steamed one.
Taste is just wooden, no bad aftertaste, but in my opinion it needs a liitle sugar to add.
I´we improoved it wit 3/4 teaspoon of sugar and it really helped a lot, still not sweet, but smoother.
P.S. use cane sugar ofcourse.
I wasn't sure about this one at first. Poured neat, there are hints of toffee and caramel apple, but also a bit of a medicinal quality to the aroma. It has a light mouth-feel, but a full flavor of rum a caramel. Very little sweetness, but also very little burn. This would pair nicely with a Fuente Maduro.
Placut la gust, miros si culoare, aromat, cred ca este pus in valoare doar daca este consumat sec.
