Not good. Tastes and smells like eau de petrolatum distillate. Passable in a Cube Libra. I'm not really sure whether to put this down the drain or save it for late night after I've had to much to notice.

The nose in the bottle is Homer Formby, that rumahol presence which is typical of some. Not overwhelming but there. The palate is not particularly sweet and Homer remains. No oak anywhere that I could find. After it breathes a bit in glass the nose sweetens somewhat. Not much peppery but the warmth is there in the finish. A large swallow produces a hint of bitterness on the palate, but it is soon gone. there is an accommodating sweet finish, delayed after a large swallow. One can sip, but I would not measure it as pleasant. Obviously, stout enough for a mixer, but I don't mix. Rating as a sipper, I have it at 2 1/2 stars, since I have Mount Gay Eclipse at 3 stars. This might grow on someone as a sipper. I expect it is not sugared but have not tested it. The 7yr expression is tested as not sugared. Thanks to Capn Jimbo. It was on sale, and reasonable.

Really agree about the petroleum distillate smell and taste.

You absolutely should try this!  It is available in 50ml samplers, and is the best value in rum. Enjoy!

I am not the biggest rum fan. I have come across two bottles of rum that I would like to sip, but for the most part, I just enjoy the flavor profile of a bourbon or anejo tequila more than rum. Someone actually left a bottle of this stuff at my house, so I decided to sip it neat to see if it was worth keeping. I was actually pleasantly surprised with the results. It is fairly smooth and balanced, though it smelled a little bit like those bottles of liquid soap that kids make bubbles out of. The flavor was good, though, if a little uninspiring. With the great price of this rum, I will definitely be getting it for myself once this bottle runs out to make any rum cocktail that I want. I will definitely not be sipping this again, though.

At The Rum Project (link below) Sue Sea and I have independently reviewed over 120 rums. The Flor de Cana's are all well made. Although the 4 year is usually considered a mixing rum, it is a pleasant light sipper. At our house we always have a 1-1/2 liter jug around: for mixing, cooking and light sipping.
