Truly a fantastic choice
Cubaney has a new package. It looks better than the old one in my opinion.
I know some other rums that go in that direction (QRM30, Cubaney 21 and 25). They are not that good but a way cheaper.
Yes, there are some similarities with QRM30. QRM has more sherry aroma, more wood, more alcohol in the nose. Cubaney is more balanced, more intense in the taste, it's heavier, I think it's older.
But QRM has a better value for the price.
So why is it a 9? Easy to explain, there is too much sherry influence, you can not recognize the original rum. Yes it's tasty, it's complex and intensive, but sherry is not a distillery character and also not a note that is typical for DomRep rums.
Smell: Caramel, wood, some sherry, fruits/dry fruits (apricot, cherries, peach), burned sugar. Very nice, very smooth, well balanced.
Taste initial: Caramel, sweetness, red fruits, fruits (apricot)
Middle: wood with apricots, honey, sherry
Finish: spice, burned suggar, again wood with apricots.
Aftertaste: Sherry and cherry compote, dry apricot (I expected that, typical for Oliver & Oliver).
Value (80€): 2.5/5
Quorhum 30 (not that balanced)
Cubaney 21 and 25 (not that balanced, more spicy)
A very nice looking bottle that comes in a cheap paper box (picture). I really think that this luxury rum deserves a better package. In this pricerange you can expect more.
In the glass you first smell some alcohol but after a while you get sweet aromas from toffee, vanilla and almonds. You also sense som oak and maybe a hint of whisky. I really recommend that you let this rum rest in the glass for atleast 10 minutes.
In the mouth you get a lot of spice. You also get sweet flavours of caramel, vanilla and fruits. In the throat you get some spice and sweet flavours. This rum is very smooth with a very long spicy aftertaste.
This is one of the rums that can make any "rumhater" to change their minds. With its 25-30 year blend this rum deserves a lot of respect when you drink it. Cheers to Oliver & Oliver and thank you for a great experience.
Vynikající rum, sušší, dřevitý, jemný, vyvážený, spíše pro zkušenější milovníky rumu. Nádherná ovocná až povidlová vůně. Luxusní balení. Rum pro výjimečné příležitosti.
Ive tried this one just after getting a bottle of Millonario XO and I must admit this one is slightly better. It has not so strong nose (Millonario XO is maybe just too much on nose), but the taste.....that is really it!
There is not alcohol body, only tones of vanilla, oak,caramel....yummy!
It has one of the best tails: long, complex and slowly releasing.
Bottle is a copy of Millonario XO (or vice versa), anyway a masterpiece.
Only bad thing about this Rum is the price tag....
All I can say is wow! Finally managed to get my hands to Cubaney Centenario while in Dominican Republic and its worth every single penny of its $115 price tag at any local grocery stores. Bottle looks very nice and high end. Very flimsy cardboard box looks silly. Super deep dark color. Notes of coffee and toffee to the nose. More coffee and toffee to the palate with very mild spices and almonds. Nice and long finish. Simply amazing rum. Second best rum from Oliver & Oliver right after Esclavo XO which was not available anywhere in DR.

Centenario je pro mne velmi skvělý rum od Olivera&Olivera z Dominikány. Neřeším příběh a původní suroviny,ale pouze chuť. Je to hvězda večírků a mám ho opravdu rád. Lehká nasládlost a jemnost mi prostě imponuje.
I'm surprised. I've not generally been a fan of rums from the D.R., but this one has my attention. It's delicate - nothing overpowers. As a result, it's a touch light compared to other rums of this age group. Only 42% ABV, so that could account for it based on what my palette is used to. Nose is caramel, coffee, vanilla. It's a touch sweet, making me wonder about added sugar. A touch of all the things in the nose, plus something a little fruity. Overall, a lovely sipper.
This rum taste great, no doubt about it .A wonderful nose, Sweet and spicy, yet complex taste. A very long and wonderful aftertaste. It is indeed a luxury rum.
The thing is though, you can find rum that are as good as this, but considerably cheaper. And thats why this rum doesn't get a 10 from me.
je to sice oliver a oliver, ich rumy nesu urcite podobne znaky ale musim povedat ze tento im vysiel asi najlepsie. dlho som nemal moznost ochutnat, lebo mi to okolnosti nedovolovali a nechcel som si dalsieho "podobneho" olivera kupovat domov, mam ich uz dost, ale oslovil ma natolko ze je to dalsia flasa ktora pribudne do mojej zbierky. toto je presne co mam rad, trafili mi chut na 90%, uplna parada. ako uz zname u OaO je to sladsi rum, ale chutovo vyrazny... no proste parada. 9,1/10
Waoh en rom, fantastisk kraftfuld duft og vidunderlig smag med et ordentlig spark når man først smager på den, dejlig blød og lang holdbar eftersmag. Ny farvorit herfra, kan varmt anbefales.
En anelse bedre end QRM 30 års (som flere andre også mener), mere kompleks i smagen og holder længere.
Smagte den hos en kammerat som havde fundet den til 700 kr i Billund lufthavn, noget mere overkommeligt end de ca 1.100 som den koster flere andre steder.
