Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Sugar: Estimated at 42 GPL. A step up from the 25 year version of the rum. Similar taste profile as the 25 year old but this rum is so much smoother and because of that the sweetness of this rum doesn't overpower the taste. Oak, vanilla, caramel, smoke, and what I got from this rum was the taste of Cherries? In my review of the 25 year old version I listed Christmas Cake as one of my tastes and aromas. That's present in this rum as well. Is this rum worth twice the cost of the 25 year old version? I have a couple bottles of the 25 year old, but as I am focusing on building the best rums in the world, I know I will have to buy more of this rum as it's not going to last long when my rum drinking friends come over. So, Yes, it's worth it to me. If you don't have a bottle then treat yourself to one.
Ce rhum est un delice, à essayer absolument. Dans mon top assurement
I usually leave the finer tasting flavour notes to my esteemed colleagues. The available price showing on my browser right now is $263 usd. If you are ever in St Maarten there is a very nice specialty store on Front Street where I picked one of these beauties up for $99. What a deal! It is actually better than Diplomatico Reserve; another extremely pleasant experience. As another reviewer has stated, one could sip this (neat) all night. A very nice heavy glass bottle as well. A centerpiece for my collection to be sure.
My pick this up because while I enjoy the younger centenarios I found the finish on them to be a little rough. Not the case here! A beautifully packaged bottle with wonderful aromas in the glass. As other tasters have observed this really opens up with aeration and I find a couple of drops of water completely eliminate any phenolic after notes. A very fine rum indeed, Very glad that I picked up 3 bottles while in Costa Rica last week.
A good rum, very woody taste. The 25 year is a smoother and more enjoyable flavor
Deosebit, poate un pic prea dulce dar cu niste arome superbe si un aftertaste lung si foarte fin.
Great Rum, Very sophisticated and complex. A well rounded rum with lots of fruits both dark and light in nature. Just the right amount of sweetness. You can taste the wood from the barrels. Superb finish and wonderful to drink neat. A truly delicious RUM!
Wow! Viscous, slightly sweet and full of caramel and honeyed fig. Super smooth and not a hint of fire. One of my favourites. Could sip this all night long.
Was part of Rum Calendar 2016:
Smooth, mild, well balanced, sweet, but not so much character - and probably overprized.
Comparable con un Zacapa XO pero de menor costo. Es un ron dulce pero no tanto como el centenario 20 o 25. Nariz es brillante, suave y atractiva!
My first rum Fron Costa Rica, andere it's a very god choice.
For me it´s probably one the best rums you will taste. It´s A semi sweet rum with a noticeable taste of honey and vanilla, its a smooth rum.
Nose: caramel, chocolate
Taste: liquid chocolate, spices and caramel.
Lacks a little oemph-kick from the alcohol. But besides that excellent!
Picked up a bottle of the 25 in Costa Rica and on my way out of the country I spotted the 30 for less than what I had spent on the 25. Some of the best money I have ever spent. Both are sweet and full of flavor. It is like they were able to bottle the feeling of being in Costa Rica on a hot day at the beach. I find the 30 a bit sweeter and smother than the 25. Both are worth owning.
Very nice smooth ruhm. I personally like the 25 better. Hard to find. I'll add another bottle to the bar to have on hand for special friends.
Ich finde einen Centenario sehr passend zu meinem 100'sten Rating.
Schönes dunkel leuchtendes Mahagoni im Glas.
In der Nase sehr frisch und fruchtig für sein Alter dennoch hat das Holz die Oberhand. Toffe, Karamell, reife rote Früchte und Beeren runden das Ganze ab.
Im Gaumen übernehmen die Karamellnoten die Führung, karamellisierte rote Früchte mit einem hauch Vanille, Honig, eine angenehme Süsse die auf herbes Holz trifft. Super ausbalanciert.
Im Abgang bleibt lang ein schöne Süsse von roten Beeren zurück mit etwas Leder und Tabak.
Ich höre Ihn flüstern: Ich war so lange im Fass, nimm Dir Zeit für mich.
Ein hervorragender Rum für Tage mit viel Zeit und Musse.
I find a Centenario very suitable for my 100 'rating.
Beautiful dark luminous mahogany in the glass.
In the nose very fresh and fruity for its age, nevertheless the wood has the upper hand. Toffee, caramel, ripe red fruits and berries complete the whole.
In the palate, the caramel notes take the lead, caramelized red fruits with a touch of vanilla, honey, a pleasant sweetness that hits on tart wood. Super balanced.
Long finish remains a beautiful sweetness of red berries back with some leather and tobacco.
I hear whisper him: I was so long in the barrel, take your time for me.
An excellent rum for days with plenty of time and leisure.
Just best of the best. First chocolate cake with vanilla crema and then long finish from creamy toffee...
Denne rom kommer op blandt de bedste jeg har smagt, simpelthen en super rom som er utrolig blød med noter af banan.
Not much not to like here! Definitely a good choice if you want something solid. Sweet, nutty, oaky, toffee!
Looking forward comaring it to the XX
Sweet, Ultra Smooth, Silky, Elegant, Expensive yet Fantastic!
For it's price I have expected something better. Don't get me wrong, it is very nice. Little bit too sweet. But you can buy same quality for half price.
A smooth rum. High quality, but a little sweet for my taste.
