Flor De Caña Centenario 18 Rum
Aged Rum — Nicaragua
Reviewed November 12, 2021
Dark amber pour. Nose is very faint with subtle alcohol and burnt sugar notes. The palate is more complex but light with wood, burnt sugar and tobacco. Thick mouthfeel with a medium finish. I honestly expected a little more from this as far as the flavor. It's not bad, just not very robust. It is extremely smooth and somewhat complex, just muted like an American rum. Maybe I'll change my mind if I pair it with a cigar. Longer time in the barrel almost always means better flavor for whiskey. This is the second rum line I've tried where I preferred the younger expression. I can drink Flor 7 all day; the other brand was Real McCoy 5 over the 12 year. I'll update after a cigar session.
