4. Flor de Cana 12 (Nicaragua)


My favorite of the classic latin rums, which get their distinctive taste from the spanish expertise in making sherry and are often aged in sherry casks.ย  These kinds of rums are ideal for proper Cuba libres with lots of lime, which balances the aftertaste nicely. Otherwise the rums listed above I recommend neat or with coke but no lime (in fact my favorite thing is to get super-detailed about the quality of rum I’m ordering and then give the bartender a heart attack by mixing it with coke.)
