I understand others don't rate it as highly. However, I fully disagree. I find it to be quite smooth as a sipping rum, with very complex and pleasing flavors that are so absent in lesser rums. In fact, I'd say this is my perfect sipping rum. It's not harsh, it remains smooth when held in the mouth and has a gentle afterburn. Perfect straight up in a small glass. I'd rate it in the low 90's.

Alkohol: 40 %
Původ: Kostarika
Aroma: Vanilka, kůže, čokoláda, javorový sirup a máta, nebo něco podobně větrového. (83 b)
Chuť: Čokoláda s kůží, med, k tomu opět peprmintová příchuť, snad až do anýzu a lékořice. (83 b)
Shrnutí: Za cenu kolem 550 korun v akci to není nic převratného, ale ani nic, co by zklamalo či urazilo. Celkem pohodový rum, který je ozvláštněn větrově pikantní vůní a chutí.
Body: 83

This one is okay for an everyday sip, but unfortunately has nothing special. You certainly find better for this amount of money.

It was the end of the bottle when tasted and was only able to pour 2cl. The bottle was opened for quite some time so very difficult to assess the real potential.

Vanilla and powerful black pepper notes stood out though

I really love the Centenario 20, 25, and 30, but I didn't have high of hopes for this, due to the low price of only $28.99 (Beltramo's 2015). However, I was pleasantly surprised. While this isn't as good as the above, it's still my kind of rum.

Has a wonderful sweet caramel and brown sugar smell/taste, that is relatively simple, but extremely good to me! A tad harsh compared to the others I mentioned, but a great taste and a nice surprise for my 90th review!

This is a smooth rum great for sipping on the rocks

for me, this is how the typical rum tasted in the times of pirats. its kinda strong but still very smooth. this is how the 'raw' aged sugar cane should taste :) wood and sugar cane in nose as well in taste. honest 12 years old, not a solera system.

Tento rum, není mým favoritem , je ostřejší a ke konci má lehkou hořkou chuť , která není příjemná.

Den mangler meget i forhold til sine ældre brødre.

smoother than 7 year .. good start in centenario rums

Sweet, deep, ripe and a lot of sustain. One solid and full taste. It came 2nd best in one of our tastings.

When I visited Costa Rica I fell in love with this rum. I recommend this to anybody

Igen et impulskøb, ikke noget specielt. Det er rom, og det smager jo godt;-)

I would say average very good rum. Nothing special, but really not bad.

Could be sipped, but maybe better to have it with coke.

Defenately worth it. Great flavours with a small rough edge...

Golden amber color. A little thick on the tongue. Light aromas of molasses, clove, cinnamon and light oak. Flavours of raisins, prunes and dried orange peel. Finishes dry, with burnt carmel and a great tingle on the tongue. A great rum for mixing and a solid sipper but better choices for the $40.

I did try the 20 year Centenario half year ago and scored it 9, this one is also really good. This 12 year is a little bit thinner then the 20 year. It becomes much better efter letting it brief for at least 20 minutes.

Ușoare note de cafea și tutun, un pic amărui.. Bun pentru gama sa.

Personal am vrut sa-i dau un 6,5 dar nu se poate. E bun dar vreau sa testez si variantele superioare. Recomand.


It's even better than the 20year old. Less sweet and very nice sipping rum. I would recommend it.


prekvapeni co se nekonalo. z rady ron centenario doporucuji 9 letou variantu. vzhledem k pomeru cena/ chut/ kvalita. u 9lete varianty bohatsi chut, slabsi alkoholova chut.

Ron Centenario rums come in a variety of ages and I inadvertently started high with the 25-year and seem to be working my way backwards. I just reviewed the 20-year and gave it a "7". Maybe my bottle was a fluke but frankly I think the 12 is a tad bit better than the 20. This rum isn't as deep of a color as the 20-year but it is only a shade or two lighter. The aroma is marvelous. I like the flavor. Definitely has the sweetness albeit not as drastic as my bottle of Ron Centenario 20-year but also more of an oak bite to it. Flavors of vanilla and butterscotch coat the tongue then rather than a burn, my throat is warmed up quite nicely. The oak stays with you for the finish with a buttery coating on the tongue. Definitely a good sipping rum. Makes for an excellent mixer as well. I contend this is a very versatile rum worthy of being added to one's liquor cabinet. Recommended.
