Flor De Cana 12 Year Old
I've had Flor de Cana rums a few times but always with cigars so never written reviews of them so was nice to sit and sip this one on it's own.
Back at the tail end of last year i was offered the opportunity to sample a Drinks By The Dram advent calendar, my biggest issue with that is that the Whisky ones offer a large amount of drams that i've already sampled and reviewed for the blog, and with a backlog already of samples it was time for something different.
Rum is a drink i enjoy, especially as a Dark and Stormy, and I want to enjoy it more, so you are likely to see more Rum reviews on here.
This Flor de Cana is tasty rum, oaky, woody, toffied and tasty, a very easy sipping, easy drinking rum, that also works well with a cigar or in a dark and stormy, if you get a chance, give it a go.
Available to buy from Master of Malt
Thanks to Drinks By The Dram for the Calendar and as such the sample.
