Dark rum is on the rise as millennials get cozy with brown liquors and a "whiskey culture", said Ashela Richardson, brand ambassador for Flor de Caña rum. Richardson believes the big misconception about rum is that it's packed with sweetness. Flor de Caña rum, which is the marquee spirit of Nicaragua, is produced using a single estate production process and aged in American white oak bourbon barrels sealed with banana leaves. The liquid is known for its simultaneous whiskey-like finish and tropical flavor notes. Billed as a whiskey drinker's rum, Flor de Caña is a prime example of a dynamic mixable with multiple marques, ages and finishes.
