Review #1349 | Rum Review #86

Distiller: Flor de Cana

Bottler: Flor de Cana

Brand: Flor de Cana

Selection: N/A

ABV: 40% ABV

Age: 7 Years


Nose: A bit hot, lots of molasses, and brown sugar. Some faint fruity funk, and a bit of varnish.

Taste: Thin on the palate and a bit hot for the proof. Sweet, molasses, faint butter, varnish. Not super complex.

Finish: Medium in length, a hair hot once again. The dominant notes are brown sugar and some varnish, which isn’t amazing.

Overall: I’m not a huge fan of this one, and think that it is best served to be mixed for cocktail stuff. It’s not bad, but it has some flaws, and the competition is stiff.

Thanks for reading!
