Nejsou tam zbytecne orisky a da se to pit porad dokola a chutna, ale je tezsi
Very good rum great taste and smoothness.
I like it to be a little more rough at the end, but a very nice run
I really liked this before, during and after - a shame that the bottle is so boring, because the taste is sumptuous.
On the nose you get rich fruit, medium cream sherry, soft oak, caramel, a hint of brown sugar (before sipping you can guess that some sugar has been added)
In taste, pretty similar to the nose, but also some very subtle exotic fruit (maybe banana, apricot, mango, cherry, dates). There's a slight smokeyness but it's right at the back, whilst the soft oak feels like a container to hold it all in.
The aftertaste is rather like a medium sweet wine or sherry.
I'd compare this to two other rums I've so far tasted - Santa Teresa 1796 and El Dorado 12. To my taste buds, this is richer than either; and more sweet than the Santa Teresa and about on a par with the El Dorado. It is more resonant of fruit and sherry than either of those other rums, but less complex than the Santa Teresa and without the dry finish and molasses hit of the El Dorado. If you like one of these, it's pretty unlikely that you'd dislike the others, though which you prefer could vary. For me, the other two just shade it because this one has a slightly rough edge in terms of the aftertaste - more than any rum I have tried, if you drink enough of it, it will catch you out sooner or later and lead to the impulse to cough.
Well, nothings sticks out, a very drinkable rum, medium sweetness, lot of taste - quite similar in taste to El Dorado 15 years.
Très bon rhum, doux, différent du 7 ans que j'ai moins aimé. Un gout de chêne, caramel et noisette brûlée. Je le recommande mais un peu cher.
Kurzer Abgang, nicht scharf, süßlich. Schmeckt aber sehr gut. Schafft es nicht in die Hausbar
This is a sweet rum that will have you checking your receipt to see if you really paid that little for such a nice rum. It is not complex but at this price you can be biased. This drink left me wanting to buy the Abuelo Centuria as this is meant to be the top rum in the Abuelo brand. I just need a reason to justify myself this purchase.
Este ron tiene la virtud de poderse tomar solo y con refresco. Es la primera vez que lo tomo y me gustó sin duda lo podría volver a comprar
In the nose, abuelo is fruity & chocolate flavour is in.
In the mouth, we have a really good storm of flavour. Very good balanced between the woody, chocolate, leather and almond flavour.
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.
En nariz especias,pasas,miel,un cuerpo imponente,un sabor aumado ,dulce pero no empalagoso,y un final extraordinario
Not so sweet like same level Diplomatico (which somebody can prefer), smooth, nice, not so known premium rum. I like to give 8,5...
un rhum à boire pour sa conso régulière
Un excellent concurrent au Matusalem 15 ans
I would rate this excellent rum at a much higher price in a blind test I am sure. My first bottle is soon empty and I will definitely go for a renewal.
erg lekker sterk van smaak maar zeker goed gerijpt.
Buen producto final. Su color y cuerpo muestran real añejamiento. Su sabor es suave con tonos a madera y vainilla.
I liked this a lot for my first time trying it. I tried it with coke and sipped on it as a shooter. I can drink either way but prefer with coke. I will definitely buy again.
This is a keeper! A really nice Spanish style rum that delivers a good mix of sweetness and fruity and spicy flavours. Maybe not as good as Zacapa, but I would put it on equal footing with say Reserva Diplomatico Exclusiva, which has a similar taste profile.
A pretty good sipping rum, just love the smell
I enjoyed this with my father in law. It was good.
Good rum that goes down smoothly straight up. Not very complex but good allround taste
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.
This is an excellent rum from Panama that I really enjoy. It is a great value at around $30 too. It starts out smelling like toffee and orange or apples and gets even better from there. The flavor really shines with the toffee, apple abd caramel and this has a nice viscosity so it coats the palate nicely. This is an excellent sipper.
