Now this is some good stuff
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 is fantastic rum. It is definitely not a beginner rum, and not something I would give someone who is just getting started. However, if you're looking for something to learn from and constantly discover new aspects, give it a try.
I have yet to have a rum better than this. It is amazing. It can be had neat, one rock, or a a few drops of water. You really cant screw this up. And for about 120.00 USD, it is not out of range. Give it a shot.
This is really a special art! Tasted this one in a small bar in the Netherlands. My friend and I were tasting different rums and the owner kept bragging about this one so we agreed to take a glass. Man we wished we hadn't spent our money on the other rums we tasted just to keep drinking this one! Great rum!
I didn't like Abuelo 12 year. It has too much rasin and dry prune flovers.
However, this Abuelo Centuria is extermely nice !
Has very thick body, complex and smooth.
I feel caramel, vanilla , coffee, and also dark chocolate on this.
Is suger added ? WHO CARE !
Oakey and smokey with vanilla and caramel flavours. A long and rich aftertaste. A great present for my 30th birthday. The best in my possession
I managed to track down a bottle for a home tasting session - this one to bring home my collection at the time - the consensus amongst the group was “outstanding” although as we were all a bit tipsy by the end it was agreed this one should lead off next time....
I was at the rum fair in paris where I first got to taste it. It is definitely tasty and good on or off the rocks. But for that price no then you have better for less much less
This is heawen in your glass ! Absolutely in same league with TOP choices from other producers. Nice aroma, smooth taste with many layers and complex body, following with long aftertaste. Was my pleasure to meet you Ron Abuelo Centuria 😍
