Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Ron Centenario 20-Year rum is produced from Costa Rican sugar cane which is turned into molasses before aging in American white oak barrels up to 20 years using the solera aging system.
The company producing Ron Centenario 20-Year rum used to be named Seagram de Costa Rica, but in 2002 changed its name to Centenario Internacional. The rum wasn't sold outside of Costa Rica until 2007.

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 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.
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.
Dark, mahogany. Moderate tear in the cup
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
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
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.
This one is soooo great. Sweet, but not too sweet. Just for me. And soft, so soft. Hint of caramel and vanilla.
I like to taste 25 and 30 years old also, but I don´t know if I have give them afer that 11 or something. :)
This rum reminds me of Kaniche but perhaps a little more expensive and aged. The taste is less than a bottle of Eldorado 21. It is also good with coke and lime. I would buy it again.
It is a bit sweet and very smooth rum. My top rum was zacapa 23 now this one is the best for my taste.
Le rhum le plus doux jamais gouté, on pourrait croire que c'est une boisson sans alcool tellement ce dernier est absent. Surement plein de sucre ajouté mais ça ne sent pas l'ajout artificielle (même si ça l'est). Sinon les classiques du Solera : vanille, caramel et longueur convenable. Une boisson à ne pas déguster mais à boire entre amis sans réfléchir. Un Kinder sans surprise.
The aroma once you open it up is a real treat for the nose.
The best is yet to come when you drink it , the aromas are pampering youre tonque, best i ever had and not considering a new brand for a long time, i an afraid
I really like this rum. Not overly sweet, great nose and a medium finish. Great mouth feel.
It was sub $50 in Chicago so that is a good price.
I might get a bottle of the 25 and 30 year before they are gone.
I prefer sweet rum so for me it si verry good choice.
Nose has a wood, spicy light alcohol smell with light sweetness. Taste is smooth with caramel, vanilla candy like flavor. I did it neat and it was wonderful. Very clean. Worth the price
