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!
Sweet, deep, ripe and a lot of sustain. One solid and full taste. It came 2nd best in one of our tastings.

Golden amber color. A little thick on the tongue. Light aromas of molasses, clove, cinnamon and light oak. Flavours of raisins, prunes and dried orange peel. Finishes dry, with burnt carmel and a great tingle on the tongue. A great rum for mixing and a solid sipper but better choices for the $40.
I did try the 20 year Centenario half year ago and scored it 9, this one is also really good. This 12 year is a little bit thinner then the 20 year. It becomes much better efter letting it brief for at least 20 minutes.
