18 Years
From molasses
Distiller Flor De Cana (Nicaragua)

Although the bottle says "18" and not "18 years old" - dangerous with rum - the website seems to indicate that the bottle is in fact 18 years of age, but the bottle doesn't actually say it.

Review (2018)

  • Batch: N/A

  • Bottling Code: N/A

  • Bottling Date: N/A

A dry nose, with dried corn husks, lots of oak, rich earth, tamarind, brown sugar, butter, and mustard seed. A lovely nose. The palate disappoints - it dies here. Flat, a relative lose of flavor - but with oak and citrus playing off one another. Slightly soapy on the finish where brown sugar leads the exit.

Assessment: Recommended.

Value: Average to Low, depending on what the buying price is. It’s on the border.
