Flor De Caña 12 Year Old Rum: The Single Malt Review

Flor De Caña 12 is a solera aged rum, estate distilled in Nicaragua. It has a lighter bodied style than Caribbean rum, and has more gentle herbal notes typical to agricole. But, as the scores suggest, mileage may vary depending on your individual taste in rum. Stick around after the episode for a wee bit of truly professional bonus content…

I realized that i have this bottle at home. Bought it and tasted some and then it remained on the shelf so I filled up a glass and had some while watching your review. Still don’t like rums after tasting this one yet again. Will stick to Bourbons and Scotch. I would go with 69 also.
The only decent Rhum I have tasted are one from Martinique, J Bally, but those goes away from the normal Rhums.

Ian Holmes says:

Great stuff guys! I did not realize that Flor de Cana used a solera ‘trick’ for age stating. I believe Martinique is the only country that has proper regulations for rum (rhum) production. Jamaica and Barbados are strict as well. Beware independant bottlers (Plantation) who add sugar to their Jamaican rums and such though. I know the Whisky Exchange does not color or sugar their rums though. I believe Cadenhead is the same. Fat Rum Pirate has a decent database for rums and added sugar.

Yes more rum please! I’m very interested in Stolen rum which is a NZ product. I really liked your murderers bay video.

Also, I’m curious if when you think rum will become more regulated and more transparent like single malt?

Cedrick Jooste says:

Enjoy the reviews guys! But I think the rum you are referring to is Ron Zacapa
