Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I was gifted this nice bottle by my Ride-Or-Die Chick and had been looking forward to trying it for some time. In the glass, the alcohol scent is present but flows nicely with the molasses and cola aroma. At first taste, you get rich dark fruit followed by a noticeable but mellow oak flavor. Smooth on the back end with a good heat in the chest. A delicious thing that can only be enjoyed in small doses due to its heaviness, very much like my Ride-Or-Die Chick.
Sugar: 41to 45 gpl. This is a fantastic rum. Great aroma of brown sugar, Christmas cake, Cedar or fresh cut Oak dipped in Vanilla. Take a couple long sniffs before you even taste this rum to savour the aroma. Similar in sweetness to the 20 year old but the smell and taste of this one is just that much better. No burn on entry, smooth and soft on the palate followed up with some nice long lasting heat but no burn. A fantastic sipping rum. Don't even dare to mix this with anything. This rum is about $20 USD more than the 20 year version, but in my opinion it's well worth the extra money. If you liked the 20 year old vintage, you will love this one. Get 2 bottles. You won't regret it.
My first review on this site (like the site 😃). I'm a fairly inexperienced rum drinker, especially when it comes to the more expensive bottle. This Centenario 25 is the most expensive I ever bought but fell in love with it, truly a very nice and smooth rum. It's easy to drink and has a great smell to it, enjoy smelling the cork, it's awesome.
Think I finished this bottle way too soon 😃
I think Centenario 20, 25 and 30 year is some very good rums, but this one must be the best for the price. it has a dark golden color, and is very enjoyable to sid down and smell to. The nose offers notes as caramel, vanilla and hints of chocolate and nuts. The palate is also very enjoyable and easy to drink, and there I find notes as vanilla, caramel and oak that ends up with molasses. The aftertaste is long and sweet!
I received it as a gift for my birthdayand I must say wow!an excellent rum very smooth great taste awesome flavor pricey but well worth it......highly recommend it.enjoy
This is what aged rum is all about. Not super sweet just good tasting smooth delicious rum like a fine cognac! No ice! Just a snifter or rum glass.
If you are ready to move to a sweeter rum than the richly-spice, perhaps perfectly-balanced Ron Zacapa 23, then Ron Centenario 25 is the ideal choice. The 25's sweetness borders on the syrupy. Yet, there is so much piquant rum-ness present that one merely luxuriates in the extra sugar. I prefer big blooming vanilla rums over those that dry out the spices and merely hint at caramel and fruitcake. My favorite budget rum, Ron Abuelo Anejo, for example is more deply satisfying than Ron Centenario 5. Yet, between 5 and 25 years or whatever the numbers stand for, Ron Centenario 25 transforms itself into one of the most delicious libations on the planet. Although it may be cloyingly sweet for purists, RC 25 conveys the casual drinker to the promised land of rum and honey.
Very smooth. Does not need to breath as compared to the younger Centenario rums. Nice aroma, drinks easily and leaves a nice warm after taste.
This Centenario 25 has a nice amber/gold color which is most probably due to the caramel which is well present with a little touch of vanilla. Alcohol taste is well present at the begining but not too much. The after taste is long and pleasant. Really easy to drink. It will stay most probably a long time in my top 5 ! :-) Enjoy !
Got is a a gift from my father in law. A bit sweet, very smooth. Subtle vanilla and caramel. Drinks easy and is very, very enjoyable. Get one, you won't regret it! Can't wait for my next trip to Costa Rica to replenish my stock.
You have to try this one. Drink it neat! It is a benchmark for so many other.
This is one of the easier drinking rums I've had. It doesn't smell or taste like it's 40% (more like 35-39%). It has a wonderful sweet caramel smell to it, and tastes equally nice too. Sweeter than the Centenario 30 (and even slightly better imho), this is simply an exceptional rum!
Super lækker Rom.
Smagen er fantastisk.
Eftersmagen er lang og behagelig.
Dejlig. Smagfuld. Mange noter og varme som virkeligt slipper fri i munden
I bought this while passing thru Panama last year and was totally awestruck by it's smoothness, a little heavier and sweet for some but if you like a full bold flavour with incredible smoothness by this. The rep at the store tried to get me to buy the 30 year old but I didn't, have kicked myself ever since and have not seen either anywhere here in Canada. This is #1 in my collection.
Banane, Karamell, Früchte, sehr cremig, süß. Voller als der 20jährige.
One of my favorite. Will have this ruhm stocked always.
The color is spot on amber. The nose is inviting and has no burn, it is very smooth. The flavorful aftertaste doesn't linger long and sweet liquids Cascade around your pallet begging for more. I am intrigued if this has ruined my chances of liking the 7 year or should I just go straight for the 30 year.
After revisiting it lacks the complexity of lesser prices rum. So I took it down to a 7/10.
Tried this for the first time and thought it was great. Smooth flavors and a little sweet.
Duft: dejlig sød duft, med hints af karamel, vanilje, citrus, og fad. Måske gemmer der sig et snert af sød pibetobak.
Smag: første indtryk er at den er lidt flad lige i det øjeblik den rammer tungen. Jeg fornemmer vanilje, citrus sød pibetobak og en dejlig balanceret mængde af fad.
Denne rom skulle man tro kom fra den dominikanske republik.
Det er klart en rom jeg godt kunne finde på at købe til min samling.
I'm rather new in the Rum universe, but I think this is a really nice Rum! Absolutely one of the best I have tasted.
On opening, cork with nice sweet/nutty aroma. Thick and heavy on first taste with good heat but very smooth. As sits in glass, gains sweetness but not overly sweet. Enjoyable drink.
Wer alte Zacapas liebt muss unbedingt den Centennario 20, 25 und 30 probieren.
Der 25 jährige hat meiner Ansicht nach das beste PLV mit 70-80 Euro,der 30 jährige ist zwar schöner aufgemacht aber den Mehrpreis kaum wert,nur eine Tick besser.
Ein süsser schwerer Rum mit grosser Aromenvielfalt. Es soll 2017 zu Veränderungen in der Firmenstruktur mit neuen Eigentümern kömmen,ich befürchte ähnliches wie bei Zacapa.Wem dieser Rum schmeckt Der sollte jetzt bunkern.
