A refined and elegant rum, inspired by true character. After 12 years of aging in selected barrels, it boasts luxurious and exceptional. Its well-rounded flavours are only achieved by time and artistry. Drink it by itself, paired with dark chocolate or along with mature tobacco cigars. Character behind every sip.
Recommendable to most
Bardzo dobry przedstawiciel stylu hiszpańskiego. Sięgam po niego kiedy mam ochotę na coś dobrego. Najlepszy z lodem i "psikiem" limonki. Jest słodki, ale nie za słodki. Dobrze ukryty alkohol. Bardzo dobry dla początkujących.
This was my first premium rum I tried and it set the bar pretty high. Poured over an ice cube, the flavors of vanilla and caramel pop. I'm eager to try other premium rums to compare.
Though a bit sweet for my palate, really nice in every way. The only reason I wouldn't take four bottles of this instead of one bottle of Centuria is so I can trade the Centuria for, say, a bottle of Opthimus 18, one of Mount Gay XO, and a Depaz Blue Cane to round out the price bracket.
Value alone, it's a no-brainer at $32ish. It really gets better as it airs out in the bottle or decanting. Dark berries, cherries, apricot, some buttery/salted toffee, coffee. Initial sweetness fading towards the finish with the tiniest hint of leather and tobacco bringing up the rear; really nice medium body texture. If you dislike oak/wood notes to your rum, they're almost completely missing here. There's a delicious cognac note here, too.
If you find yourself unimpressed with the adulterated sweetness of most rums but don't fancy the drier examples like Appleton 12, Brugal 1888, this is a center-line rum you just might come to love. An critical rating of 7 but a cumulative rating of 8 given the great value. A staple.
very good stuff. The nose isn't that great to be honest and i has this 'alcohol' smell, if you know what i mean. but then I sipped it and it almost blew my mind. after the decent nose i really wasn't expecting such a sweet and complex taste with a smooth and longholding ending.
Con la familia hicimos una cata ciega entre Abuelo Centuria, Quorhum, 12 anos abuelo y zacapa 23 anos.
Abuelo 12 quedo de tercero, bien pegado al centuria (segundo)... pero la verdad que muy cercanos los dos... pero la diferencia de precio es abismal.
