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.
went to a friend's house for a bbq and was offered a shot of abuelo 12---wow --never heard of it before and now is my favorite rum ---great sweet smooth flavor --only problem is it is hard to find where i'm from--found it at a small local liquor warehouse and bought the last one this week-hope they re-order soon-
I read a lot of hype on this rum online as well as the ratings here.
I decided to spend the $125 making this the most expensive rum I've purchased thus far.
With all the hype and for the asking price I expected a high standard.
I was disappointed.
I wish to make it clear...this is not...I repeat NOT a bad rum whatsoever.
It's just not a rum worthy of a $125 price tag. $40-$50 USD would be much more reasonable.
Although it has a pleasant aroma and looks great in the snifter with a deep mahogany color, the flavor is...well...lacking.
Surprising it's not nearly as smooth as I expected. In fact it's rather harsh. This is an expensive mixing rum in my opinion, not a sipper.
One source says only 200 cases of this rum were imported into the United States...another source says only 3000 bottles were produced.
However the ready availability of this rum makes me wonder if the bottle I have is a "second generation" Centuria. I read several reviews on this rum and what I am tasting in my bottle does not even come close to resembling what is described in this reviews. Makes me wonder....
As I said, it's not a bad rum...it hits you with a initial mixture of sweetness and vanilla which receives a peppery kick. A nice strong warmth hits the throat leaving a toffee/vanilla finish. But it has an strong oak bitterness about it that reminds me more of a younger, maybe 3-yr, rum rather than one that is a blend of older rums. What gives? I just cannot give what I am trying more than a 7.
This Abuelo Centuria is really well balanced with oak and dry fruit aromas.
Maybe a little bit too much sugar but not fulsome. The after taste is long a nice.
Good high quality sipper
Superb color, notes of vanilla , oak , caramel and spices. On the palate, vanilla is present and the oak with notes of dried fruits , almonds , walnuts. Soft and very long finish . Very nice job.
Very smooth. Would highly recommend. Nice molassas you just wanna dive into. The finish is sublime. I only had a small sampleso didn't get to fully explore it but it was nice
Very nice smooth rum with a great aroma and depth of flavour.
Interesting though that for a "limited 3000" bottling it's still widely available in the uk.
WTH is it with the added sugars?!? Burnt at that. Exceeds even the moderately+ sweetness of the 12 year. The nose is excellent and you can literally nasal-taste the older rums in waiting...until you actually taste it. Sweet...more sweet...absolutely defiling the rum that could have been. Not until mid-finish do you get reintroduced to what this rum might have been throughout the palate; some really nice dark tea, leather, citrus & fruit intertwining with slight clove, chocolate, nuts and, and...well, after lingering for a bit, it's over. A shame; it could have been great. Very nice texture on the tongue. Almost a 7, but the burnt molasses - present but much better balanced in the Abeulo 12 - says "6".
Maybe a few months of decanting will help, but at this price should one have to? Bahhh....save money and buy a bottle of Plantation 20 XO and Mount Gay XO instead. You'll have two better distillations and won't mind telling your drinking buddies what you paid.
This special reserve rum was made to celebrate Abuelo's 100th anniversary.
Trully amazing experince. So silky, smooth and round texture. Easy to drink. Notes of Vanila, spices, smokey hints.
What a shame seeing others mixing it up with coke :(
En nariz sencillamente espectacular dátiles ciruela ,pasas ,vainilla ,madera aún ahumado sutil. Aún siendo un prom suave tiene un carácter impresionante el deseo de seguir tomando,en palabra fina néctar de los dioses
This rum contains a large amount of added sugar. Downgraded from 10 to 5, because I thought it was naturally sweet and smooth and came to find out that I had been deceived. Mediocre rum + lots of sugar = fake elegance. Not worth the price ($140).
Great balance. Café, vanilla and eventually chocolate! A long beautiful finish. It has everything. I don't even know why I'm not giving a 10. I guess I'm just hopeful to taste something even better.
Bought a bottle after reading the review on Forbes. Best rum to date! Smells lovely, rich texture and a taste that never stops. Wonderfull product.
I have been lucky to have had this drop while on holiday and I remember it more then the Holiday haha its a rum for those whom love
As title suggests ....
On the nose this rum is spicy and nostril tingling. It's taste has an oak and nutty flavor a great rum and very distinct
I just wanted to put this one on my shelf. I haven't actually tasted it, but I felt comfortable that it was at least a nine. I'll edit the review when I've actually tasted the rum.
