No matter where you’ll find us, at BourbonBlog.com we are open to dabbling and tasting spirits from across the globe. However, usually you’re more likely to find Tom’s nose in a glass rather than his fingers…hmm.
With an invitation like this one from Flor de Caña Rum and Ed Hamilton and The Ministry of Rum, we had to visit this “Rum Experience Like No Other,” which was led by Ed Hamilton, one of the world’s top authorities on rum. This Tasting Room and short seminar gave Tales of the Cocktail guests the chance to discover one of Nicaragua’s best kept secrets in Flor de Caña.
We tasted some rare expressions of Flor de Caña like the Centenario 21, Commemorative Edition, while Latin dancers move to the rhythm of Salsa and Merengue. Some talented mixologists were mixing up Daiquiris and serving The Macuá made with the 7 year old Flor de Caña, recipes below…
