La Isla Rum Club
Featured Rum: Flor de Caña
It may have been chilly and damp outside, but inside La Isla was warm and cozy - probably due to all the people drinking delicious rum and enjoying good company! Rum Club was another great success with Flor de Caña serving up some tasty samples of their award winning rum next to our authentic puerto rican dishes made by the talented Chef Hernan! Flor de Caña, Spanish for sugarcane flower, has won over 100 awards internationally in the last decade and we were excited to host their rum and introduce another great product to our wonderful customers and friends.
The first course was Guineitos en Escabeche (Pickled Green Bananas) served with Flor de Caña Extra Dry 4 years. The 4 year carried hints of mint, caramel, banana peel, and butterscotch.

The third pairing was Pavochon Relleno de Trifongo (Pork marinated Turkey Roast stuffed with Mashed Tubers) alongside the Flor de Caña Centenario 12 years. This sample is made with walnut, pecan, caramel, honey, vanilla, and has some mellow oakiness. The stuffing (also made with plantains) was incredible.
