Flor de Caña Gran Reserva '7' Rum
The Pellas family has been making Flor de Caña rum at the base of Nicaragua's San Cristobal volcano since 1890, using molasses made from locally grown sugarcane. The molasses is distilled five times in a multicolumn still and aged in the tropical heat in used american bourbon barrels.
The Gran Reserva's beautiful round entry leads to a medium bodied palate of dark caramel and toasted nuts. It finishes with a dry toasted coconut note that fades slowly. The full bodied rum is great neat, on the rocks, or in a spirit driven cocktail.
