Nicaragua is an often neglected producer of medium-bodied Rums from column stills that lend themselves well to aging. Thanks to the exceptional quality maintained by distillers like Flor de Cana, the region's rums have begun to gain well deserved international recognition. Flor de Cana is owned and produced by Compañía Licorera de Nicaragua, which was founded in 1890. Although the brand was not marketed commercially until 1937, it is today considered one of Latin America's most prestigious rums, and has won 72 awards, medals and commendations in the last five years. This commemorative edition is a 15 year old bottling that was introduced to celebrate the arrival of the 21st Century. Bottles are individually numbered and packaged in an embroidered cloth bag.

'This distillery has always produced quality rums,
but Centenario 21 is in another league...'
- 2003 Spirits Journal

Initial sniffings pick up rich aromas of oaky vanilla, cigar ash, cocoa butter and oil. Palate entry is opulent, viscous, caramel-like and moderately sweet; the midpalate features toasty, tobacco-like tastes that are complemented by the thick, chewy texture. Aftertaste is long and riveting. 96-100 points - wineenthusiast.com

Light copper color. Sweet caramel, nut, milk chocolate, and spice aromas with a oak barrel note. A supple entry leads to a dry medium-to full-bodied palate with chocolate-covered raisins, dried tobacco, sherry, dark caramel, and mineral flavors. Finishes with a peppery caramel and mineral fade.
