Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Ron Abuelo Centuria is a limited edition rum derived from a blend of fine rums aged in oak barrels for up to 30 years. The name recognises the 100th anniversary of the family estate in Panama.
A 71 year old novice when it comes to sipping rums, but I prefer the sweetness with a good habana cigar. So, while I,m not an expert I enjoy this rum a lot. It is softer than my other tasting samples (Ron zacaya xo and Facundo exquisito) but I enjoy them as well. Perhaps not surprisingly, while I like them all, I would rank them by price and the abuelo is the most expensive. I drink all with just a few drops of room temperature water. Makes a big difference!
Damn this Rum is smooth, like the bass to a great 70’s disco hit, a wonderful expression of a top notch Rum.Think El Dorado 21, then bump it up a notch. I have a back up bottle and think I might need another. I won’t break this down flavor by flavor, I’m just saying it works and I’m giving this rum a 9 plus. Damn good rum!💪🏼
Jeg havde forventet mig noget mere af denne rom, som ligger i en helt anden prisklasse end eksempelvis 7-årsudgaven.
Det er uden tvivl en god rom, men i forhold til prisen vil jeg hellere anbefale 7-årsudgaven.
Although it remains an excellent rum just like the 12 years, the big difference of price with the youngest is not justified. Alcohol always delicately present and sweet subtle caramel
First thought: unusual nose. I never felt something like that. Very interesting, hard to indetify. Taste: it burns! Rich all kinds of flavour! For me smoke and oak but not strong very balanced. You can feel luxury. But... still strange
No le pongo 10 porque aún espero la perfección. Un placer beberlo, con personalidad, aromas sorprendentes y familiares al mismo tiempo, de sabor agradable y textura aterciopelada. Una suavidad.
Ron muy agradable y suave, sabores persistentes de caramelos, especias tropicales. Se me hace muy similar al Roble ultra añejo
This is a solid rum, nice nose, mouth and decent finish. Dried dark fruits, slight tobacco. Very slight hint of sweet and is what i would call a very complex rum. I expected a bit more than what i got for my money. Would i buy it again, yes, would i pay $150? Nope maybe $75 but overall it is a tasty rum.
If you like Abuelo rums, this won't disappoint. Same deep and complex flavours but definitely one of the smoothest rums I've ever tried. A pleasure to drink!
You really have let this rum breathe in the glass for quite a while. If you let it rest for about 20-30 minutes in the glass you get more and smoother aromas. Worth waiting for.
On the nose you smell sweet aromas as caramel, chocolate and vanilla. You also get some oak and a little bit of smoke.
In the mouth you taste toffee, vanilla, orange, spice and oak. The finish is long and smooth with some spice, oak and sweet flavours.
This is a very good rum but it has a bit too much oak and spice for my taste.
Abuelo Centuria (30yrs) is rum, that is fine for special occasions. Not cheap, but for sure more accessible than "specialities" priced over 1000 dollars. With this price it is TOP rum aside with my other favourite rum, Non Plus Ultra.
Picked this up for upcoming trip to Charleston with the wife. Hey, it will be October, on the coast, why not rum? have some ghost tours scheduled and the presently unopened bottle of Abuelo Centuria. Rating to come!
p.s. I'm hoping for a 10!
I'm lucky to have 3 bottles of this excellent rum, which is very balanced with woody notes (oak), vanilla, caramel (slightly) and spices. And an attractive mahogany color.
Of my favorites without a doubt.
Tengo la suerte de tener 3 botellas de este excelente Ron, el cual es muy equilibrado con notas amaderadas (roble), vainilla, caramelo (ligeramente) y especias. Y un atrayente color caoba.
De mis favoritos sin duda.
Un señor ron, valió la pena cada uno de los $150 que pagué. Sin lugar a dudas dentro del top de mi colección solo por debajo del Millonario XO. 100% recomendado.
After tasting well over 700 aged rums, I had very high expectations in relation to Ron Abuelo Centuria. I have tried it so far in 5 different occasions and my opinion has not changed. The flavor profile is very mature, deep and delicious, but there are easily 50 better rums flavorwise which are much better value also. In my opinion the Centuria is way over rated in the rum forums.
While this is smooth I don't feel it offers enough complexity and doesn't deliver on the sweetness that so many on here brought up. I have many sweet rums and this isn't in a Ron millonario xo or dos luxus kind of ballpark. Instead it is quite powerful and even after breathing I still found it to be overpowering. I'm going have to come back to this in the future but for now it moves to the back of the cabinet.
To judge this rum you also have to take it's price in consideration. Me for example i have tried the abuelo 1
2 years and have to say. The centuria is not that much better. Don't get me wrong, it is a great rum but so is the 12. If it was around 50 euro's it would beat the 12 but for 140 euro's i would buy 4 or five bottle's of the 12.
Smokey oaky with some caramel and strong vanilla nose. Strong cherry like taste at start. First sip a bit aggressive then very gentle rich body with long aftertaste. Rich sweet body with cherries and balanced vanilla... some scents of smoke, caramel, grapefruit... less sweet and almost a bit bitter end...
