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.

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.

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

I prefer sweet Rum , and this one is a good choice,less sweet as the A.H.Riise Family .
Nose: sweet ,chocolate, caramel , dark fruits , vanilla,spicy
Taste: sweet ,chocolate, caramel , dark fruits , vanilla, light alcoholic,light sharp, wood,spicy

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.

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.


I REALLY like the Centenario 25 and 30, and so I tried this side by side with them. It was a VERY close competition. This smelled a bit sweeter, much like the El Dorado 15 smells sweeter than the El Dorado 21. It was a little more difficult to pick a winner on the taste; 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; I'll call it a tie. An exceptional rum that is very underrated in my opinion.

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

With so many great ratings, I'm not sure how mine went so wrong for the Centenario 20, which I sipped on at Rumfest London 2016. I found it to be seriously sweet, far too much for me - and I have a hugely sweet palette! Notes of nutmeg and wheat came through as well, with a short nice finish. I'm being gracious with my 6, really it was closer to 5 but other based on other opinions I'm guessing either my bottle was a little off or my taste buds were acting up. I'll try it again when I can

Proposé par Arlon doux sucré fruité moins de présence que Don Papa

Sweet, smooth, easy... boring...

...i like the complex pot still types more, so a 6/10 is what i'll strech it to.

When you think of how much more a bourbon/scotch/whiskey of this quality would cost!
Mellow and complex...not overdone....vanilla not caramel. Slow sipping...serious.

Sehr schön cremig, etwas Schokolade und Karamell, süss, aber nicht zu sehr. Langer Nachhall. Insgesamt für den Preis super.

Nose: vanilla, caramel and wood notes.
When drinking, the Ron Centenario 20-Year reveals a spicy mildness.
Long finish.

Nase: Vanille, Karamell und Holznoten.
Beim trinken offenbart er eine würzige Milde.
Langer Abgang.

Z celé řady Centanario je to zatím můj favorit. Velmi komplexní.

Ein schön ausgewogener Rum, der mit Karamell und Schokolade aufwarten kann, mir eigentlich ein wenig zu süß, aber er macht es durch seinen runden Geschmack wieder wett. Daran kann man sich gewöhnen :-)

Not as good as its older brothers, but again very good according to the price

Que dire de plus. Plein de saveurs de notes épicées mais très doux en même temps

Very nice sweet Rum. Smells good, tastes good. Not too expensive!

Right off the bat, the smell of sweet citrus, vanilla and oak strike me in a good way. The flavor if all if this really comes through delightfully. It is sweet but it is very well balanced with the oak. I enjoy sipping on this a lot.
