All about making whisky
FLOR DE CANA 18 year old 40%
Rhum De Melasse, Nicaragua, 70cl, Ref: 19507
Founded in 1890, the Flor de Cana distillery produces rum made from sugar cane harvested in western Nicaragua. Ageing is carried out using the solera method for a ‘slow-matured’ effect in casks used for bourbon, in warehouses in the middle of the fields. Very creamy and almost heady, this version has reached its 18th birthday and radiates freshness and youthful expression. Its opening on the palate is the perfect illustration of its character
Profile: beaming with freshness and incredible creaminess. Notes of spice bread, fresh fruit (peach, apricot, orange) and rose petals. Delicate throughout.

- Appearance : orangey copper with glints of burnished gold.
- Nose : unctuous, refined. The opening is characterised by pipe tobacco, spice bread, fresh fruit (peach, apricot, orange) and rose petals. It gradually becomes spicier (cardamom, cinnamon) and more exotic (mango, banana). Next, it shifts into a more balsamic register (mustard seed).
- Palate : creamy, silky. Boasting incredible delicacy, it feels as light as air. The white peaches and apricots of the nose are coated in a chocolatey layer with a hint of praline and lime blossom honey. Voluptuous, it is reminiscent of a rum baba. Earthy (moss, lichen), the fruity backbone of the olfactory and gustatory palette that has been present from the very beginning remains intact.
- Overall : silky, lingering on notes of tobacco and heady flowers (carnations). As delicate-feeling as ever, if a little drier. Liquorice and caramel gradually coat the taste buds. The retro-nasal olfaction here is a combination of fruit, dried flowers, coriander and oak. The empty glass is syrupy, floral (hyacinth, peony) and milky
