Review: Flor de Caña 7 Blanco Reserva

Posted by Arctic Wolf on October 5, 2018

Flor de Caña has a history of rum production which is dated to 1890 at the San Antonio Sugar Mill, in Chichigalpa, Nicaragua. The company was founded by Francisco Alfredo Pellas and today, over 120 years later, the company is led headed by the fifth generation of the Pellas family. It has grown to be not only one of Central America’s leading brands of rum, it is also one of the most recognized rum brands in the world. According to the company website, all of the Flor de Caña rum is produced from molasses which is made from sugar cane harvested in fields adjacent to the distillery in Chichigalpa. This molasses is fermented and then distilled five times in a continuous column still. The resulting distillate is laid down to age in small American white oak barrels in traditional aging warehouses built without air conditioning in an undisturbed environment.

Flor de Caña 7 Blanco Reserva is a premium white rum with the number 7 on the label representative of the average age of the rums in the blend with some variation in the actual age based upon blending to a consistent flavour profile. Although the rums within the blend have been aged, they are filtered clear making the spirit suitable for mixed drinks and short cocktails.

Here is a link to my full review which includes two serving suggestions:

Review: Flor de Caña 7 Blanco Reserva

“… The aroma rising up from the glass contains nice notes of vanilla tinges with caramel and banana. There is a light hint menthol alongside, and some light citrus notes (orange peel and lemon) as well …”

Please enjoy my review, Chimo!
