Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Ron Centenario rums come in a variety of ages and I inadvertently started high with the 25-year and seem to be working my way backwards. I just reviewed the 20-year and gave it a "7". Maybe my bottle was a fluke but frankly I think the 12 is a tad bit better than the 20. This rum isn't as deep of a color as the 20-year but it is only a shade or two lighter. The aroma is marvelous. I like the flavor. Definitely has the sweetness albeit not as drastic as my bottle of Ron Centenario 20-year but also more of an oak bite to it. Flavors of vanilla and butterscotch coat the tongue then rather than a burn, my throat is warmed up quite nicely. The oak stays with you for the finish with a buttery coating on the tongue. Definitely a good sipping rum. Makes for an excellent mixer as well. I contend this is a very versatile rum worthy of being added to one's liquor cabinet. Recommended.
Full body, well balanced, woody, sweet, definitely not the last time I'm drinking it
Little sweet not so darl rum, good taste.
1st taste normal w:o so much significant
2nd time little better sweeter
Good rum for normal drinking , don’t expect too much
Rum je nejvíce patrný svou kořeněnou chutí. Není špatný, ovšem ochutnal jsem i lepší rumy.
Dlouho jsem po večerech při seznamování s tímto kouskem řešil jaké hodnocení vlastně dát...z rodiny Centenario mám vyzkoušeno 25 a 20 a to dopadlo velmi dobře, mezi mé favority v této chvíli patří určitě rumy značky Millonario a právě Centenario a tak jistá protekce z mé strany tu je:) ...tedy tento rum...konzistence a vůně mě baví, rum umí štípnout, je jasné že 25 + 20ka je vejš, ale s tím se počítalo.
The price is very cheap less than 30€..... so what could you expect?
Amber color, good mark on the glass, middle density.
First impact to the nose is alcohl, but immediaty you have a sweet follow up, with vanilla,plum,almond and ginger, all smooth.
In the mounth it burn, the alcohl is predominat ... all the flavor vanish in 2 second... it s not rum sorry !
Der Centenario 12 ist, wie seine großen Brüder ein sehr guter und geschmacklich ansprechender Rum. Der Konkurrent in dieser Preisklasse ist wohl einzig der Botucal - jedoch weniger süß, was aber auch sehr gut ist. Vanille und rucht, leich alkoholisch im Abgang...aber es ist ja kein Kracherl ;) Für Einsteiger und Fortgeschrittene geeignet!
The taste is orange sweet, pleasant but very far from a complex rum.
Unlike Ron Centenario 7, this rum has a personality that approaches its costlier siblings, the 20 and 25 (which may be sugared up but is truly a pleasure to sip). The hook is a big sweet caramel flavor that the aroma doesn't portend. If only this opening taste would linger and change into a bouquet of flowers and spices. Unfortunately, it turns to an alcohol burn too quickly. I was fortunate to find a bottle on sale for under $20 which influences my positive evaluation, but if I had to pay $38, I'd rather buy Flor de Cana 12 which is not as sweet but has a more complex follow-through.
Rhum assez sec avec peu de complexité, très loin du 20 ans. Sur la cerise et les épice
I took this one when we had a "drinking party" and despite the fact not much people were into rums of this kind it was pretty well accepted by most of the guys. It is included in my "stock" list so whenever I finish one I tend to order another immediately :-)
Nicht so überragend wie der 20er aber nich echt gut. P/L stimmt
Mhh? It´s not a very good one, i taste some better rum´s :-)
Ron Centenario 12 year old is easily available in the US. The initial flavor is pretty decent, but the taste turns into whisky like very quickly. A bit dry and woody, extra vanilla added for sure with some afterburn at the end. Easily available in liquor stores if you are into whisky like rums, but this is not my kind of rum.
Smooth pleasant aroma, quite complex aroma. Taste without specific tail
Goût proche du 20 ans, le rapport qualité prix du 12 ans est formidable.
Par rapport au 20 ans, le 12 ans fait ressortir une plus grande agressivité de l'alcool (nez et bouche).
Au final, un rhum de qualité avec des notes finales longues et boisées.
I had a tasting of 7y, 9y, 12y and anejo special. The best was 12y and anejo special. 7y and 9y were behind. But these are not exceptional. 12y and anejo are average rums and the others are below average.
for me, this is how the typical rum tasted in the times of pirats. its kinda strong but still very smooth. this is how the 'raw' aged sugar cane should taste :) wood and sugar cane in nose as well in taste. very simple, without any experiments. honest 12 years old, not a solera system.
Tento rum, není mým favoritem , je ostřejší a ke konci má lehkou hořkou chuť , která není příjemná.
Den mangler meget i forhold til sine ældre brødre.
smoother than 7 year .. good start in centenario rums
Sweet, deep, ripe and a lot of sustain. One solid and full taste. It came 2nd best in one of our tastings.

When I visited Costa Rica I fell in love with this rum. I recommend this to anybody
Igen et impulskøb, ikke noget specielt. Det er rom, og det smager jo godt;-)
