I am admittedly a beginner in the rum world, but this is by far the best rum I've ever had. I've sampled a few rums at bars, etc. but have only recently started buying bottles for my home. I don't think this bottle is going to last very long, as I will surely go through it quickly. It's so good, I almost hate to drink it by myself.

I normally enjoy rum on the rocks but could easily see myself drinking this straight up. Has absolutely no burn or bite and goes down very smoothly. Some rums have a good flavor once you can get past the initial sharpness, but this is smooth from start to finish. I can't imagine what the 25 or 30 year tastes like. I assume my mind would be blow if I tried one of those.


I REALLY like the Centenario 25 and 30, and so I tried this side by side with them. It was VERY close. This is a bit sweeter, much like the El Dorado 15 is sweeter than the El Dorado 21. I like the extra aging on the 25 and 30, but I also like the sweetness of the 20. I'm torn between the three. It's very close, but this is the winner for me. An exceptional rum that is very underrated in my opinion.


Nice dark colors. Smells chocolate, caramel and vanilla.
Taste is sweetish, chocolate, caramel,vanilla.
One of the best on my shelf. I'll stick to this one.


Smooth, full of flavor and nice texture! A great sipping rum and well worth the price.


Eye:
Dark, mahogany. Moderate tear in the cup

Nose 1:
Not too much alcohol perceived, definitely sugar cane notes, honey, do not smell much wood but if there is a memory of it. Very similar to the Zacapa 23, but thinner, less alcoholic punch in the nose.

Taste #1 pure:
Something creamy, slightly burning but decreases rapidly as soon as you hold in your mouth, it does not burn in the throat and has a bitterness in the end, however has a memory of tasty honeys sugar and bitter cocoa would say.

Then nose a little water:
Water fades a little bit the perceived earlier, a slight odor memory of sugar honeys.

Taste #2 with little mineral water.
By lowering the alcohol, not any burning present in your mouth, completely smoothness.
Still tastes of chocolate, the memory of the concentration of honeys have lost some

Recommendation: to take straight in the glass or add a solid big ice cube, lowering a little alcohol if you prefer, but mostly pure is better choice.

The product is rich, smooth, however the complexity is higher in products such as "Dos maderas" from Spain or "flor de caña 18" from Nicaragua.

As it is a rum to enjoy and share, in the market there are similar profiles such as Cartavio 12 years from Peru (slightly less smooth) and Ron Zacapa 23 from Guatemala.


this is the rum that made me realize rum is so much more than drink mixer. Lots of taste and nose


By far the best rum I’ve ever tasted. Absolutely amazing. Smooth, not overly sweet. Good quality rum.


Toto je veľmi podarený kúsok rumu. Je pekne zabalaný v elegantnej fľaši s hrubým dnom. Rum Centenario 20 Fundación je v mojej top 10 rumov. Má peknú svetlo jantárovú farbu. Veľmi mu pristane, keď ho po naliatí do pohára necháte chvíľku odpočinúť, rum zjemnie a zaguľatí sa. Aróma rumu je veľmi pestrá, prvý krát som cítil banány, pražené orechy, neskôr karamel, sladké medové plásty a čokoládu s tabakom mierne v pozadí. Veľmi pekná komplexná vôňa, takto sa mi to páči. Chuťové vnemy kopírujú tie aromatické, rum je rozhodne z tých sladších, čo mu skôr pristane. Cítiť opäť karamel, plásty, tropické ovocie a niekde v pozadí troška korenia s jemným nádychom po dubovom sude. Je to skutočne dobrý rum a určite ho každému môžem len odporučiť. Okrem iného tento rum už získal nespočetné množstvo ocenení na svetovej úrovni.

Nice sweet rum not to complex, with a hint of licorice in the end.... absolutely a keeper


Excellent rum, delicately sweet, warm and soft, my favorite...


One of my favoriet
Tasty of soft wood
Good choice


Nice color.A little spice.Not too strong.Good with a cigar.


Since you gang buy the xx in the leather pouch anymore, this is a perfect deplacement.


I loved the 20 tremendously and can't wait to get my hands on another bottle! It was definitely smooth and very relaxing. I'm ashamed/not ashamed to say that I might have enjoyed it a little to much that I was done with it in two weeks lol I"m still not sure which I like better when compared to the 25 however, when compared to the 30 I definitely loved it more so.


Sweet, very smooth, just delicious. I prefer this over Zacapa 23 in that it has a hint of honey and seems a tad fuller and creamier. Is it as good as Zacapa XO? No, but it's also 50% less expensive.

En rom der kan gå begge veje og vinder ved det. Har både den dejlige sødme, men også lidt krydderi, der gør den spændende.
Genkøb.


Super long avant de trouver une bouteille au canada. Un goût d épicee et de fruit. Bonne longueur en bouche et complexe. Je le suggère à tous.


Like many, we tried this in Costa Rica. We went on a search to find it in the US and were happy to find good ol' Publix Liquors carries it in Florida. It's a smooth rum and is great in a Cuba Libre. I wouldn't call it a sipping rum at all, it's more geared towards mixed drinks. Oddly, the 7 year tastes more like a sipping rum to me.


Beautiful amber color with a well balanced picy, round taste with hints of vanilla and tobacco and yet a strong presence of alcohol. Really good.


It is very sweet and smooth. Easy to drink. If you prefer sweeter rums, you can't miss this.


dalsi z mojich top rumov. vobec sa nebojim dat 10 bodov, pretoze oblubujem ovocne, sladke rumy a tento ma vsetko co od neho chcem. 10b som dal aj esperu xo ktory stoji menej ako centenario no ked si priplatite dostanete aj sladke cherry. vona ostrejsia, co ma za nasledok ze chut ostava dlho v ustach a na jazyku. ked pominie po chvilke chcete ten pocit zazit znovu a takto dookola. velmi tazke tento rum prestat pit.


Eva’s Caribbean Kitchen in Laguna Beach is a rum lovers haven and Eva is a rum encyclopedia. Over 400 I think at her restaurant and she knows each and can guide you in what to drink. I am probably a 5 of 10 in fine rum knowledge but she is a 15. After we discussed my favorites she recommends this and was spot on. Molasses and vanilla of course, with a touch of cashew or some other nut. This is the smoothest rum I have tried and not as sweet as others like Zacapa but has enough sweetness to make this my top rum.


First of all very good price, less than 40€ !
Battle very simple, they care only about what is in the bottle. Starting from the first smell coming from the glass:
- soft flover running in the nose, no alcool punch but soft plum and caramel
- density perfect, in the glass you could see the mark leave from the rhum
- forst zip in the mouth plain but interesting, very balance sweetness with a bouque of fruit like plam, nuts little accent of cinnamong but the best in coming after swallow ... amazing sense of First of all very good price, less than 40€ !
