Flor de Cana 7
A great Nicaraguan rum from Flor de Caña. This 7 year old is great as a mixing rum, and it makes a fantastic cocktail. It is aged in 180 litre white oak barrels, which are only used once before maturation - which gives the oak flavour more prominence.
This is the most beautiful rum I've ever tasted. Got hooked on it whilst travelling through Central America. Amazing straight up, on ice or with a load of lime. Slightly smokey with a smooth, almost vanilla, sweetness. Flor de Caña produces some amazing rum though this is the best for the price.
