Tasty, but not quite great
Yes, let's start saying this : I feel that this is a really big improvement over the mediocre 5-years old & simple 7-years old Centenarios (unfortunately I haven't been able yet to taste the even older versions). Sooo here we are talking about a pleasant & smooth everyday rum, with a rich, oily texture & a complicated character (not overly, though) : the balance between the caramel/cinnamon/brown sugar/dried fruits & the oak hints works just fine! A recommended rum!
Robe très claire et nez léger. Rhum sec sur des arômes de vanille et épice. Alcool pas trop présent. Pas comparable au 20 et 25 ans, mais pour le prix, c’est bien fait.
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 :-)
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.
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.
