The special edition rum two decades in the making from the Nicaraguan producer is amber in color, with a full-bodied, complex array of flavors and a smooth, lingering finish. Its craftsmanship and tradition are apparent in every sip, and in 2015 the San Francisco World Spirits Competition awarded it a Gold medal.

"The rum sips easily, with a minimal amount of fire. I got a lot of dark, luscious caramel and butter on the palate, with just a touch of vanilla."

Product Details

The amber hue of this special edition aged rum is joined by full-bodied, complex flavors. Rich and at once viscous and dry, the palate offers up dark chocolate, caramel, roasted nuts and brown spice. The finish shows charred oak and vanilla, which fades into burnt nuts. This offering from the Nicaraguan producer was two decades in the making, and its craftsmanship and tradition are apparent in every sip. In 2011, Wine Enthusiast recommended it for sipping, but also suggested soaking it into a rum cake because of its “pastry-like profile.”

About the Producer

Flor de Caña rum is produced in Nicaragua by Compañía Licorera de Nicaragua, S.A, (CLNSA.) Founded in 1937, Compañía Licorera de Nicaragua is now part of Grupo Pellas, which was the first company to distribute the rum. Flor de Caña utilizes a signature Slow-Aged™ process to offer a full portfolio of high-quality, naturally-aged rums, which are distilled and handcrafted from estate-grown sugar cane in a fully self-sustaining facility in Chichigalpa, Nicaragua.
