For only $13 for this bottle this is an outstanding bargain.
Flor de Caņa Gold is an unexpectedly smooth,
fairly simple rum. Slightly sweet, not very peppery, small
pleasant bite, and maybe a little dry - it's just a generally
mellow, simple Gold with a fairly smooth, buttery finish.
okay on the rocks, though I prefer Flor de Caņa's Black, Gran
Reserva, or Centenario for sipping.
Flor de Caņa Gold as a pretty solid base for a dirty
Mojito, but it's also tasty mixed with coke and makes for a
classier Cuba Libre than the price range is used to.
drink recipes that require gold rum, this guy is a winner. Flor
de Caņa Gold won't blow you away, but for the price, it's hard
to beat. Not to mention that this is their starting point -
their others get incrementally better with age.
