Flor de Cana 4yr Anyone?
While reading through many of the posts I found references to Flor de Cana 7yr so I decided to go out and see if I could find a bottle. Well, I didn't find anywhere that carried the 7yr but a store close to me did have the 4yr and of course i figured for $14 let's try it!
To start I tried the 4yr on it's own for a sense how it may be as a sipper rum. While not bad I do have to admit I would not willingly pick up as a sipper down the road compared to something I've already sampled like the FdC 12yr.
That being said mixed with Coke Zero it blew me away. My ration was 1pt rum / 2pt coke zero. Compared to my usual mixer (captains private stock) the 4yr was very refreshing.
I'm not sure if the coke opened it up or if it simply just paired that well for a mixer. It had lots of flavor but what I found most pleasant was how light and well balanced it was in the mix.
Can anyone share a thought on the 4yr compared to the 7yr?
