Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I understand others don't rate it as highly. However, I fully disagree. I find it to be quite smooth as a sipping rum, with very complex and pleasing flavors that are so absent in lesser rums. In fact, I'd say this is my perfect sipping rum. It's not harsh, it remains smooth when held in the mouth and has a gentle afterburn. Perfect straight up in a small glass. I'd rate it in the low 90's.
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, 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;-)
I would say average very good rum. Nothing special, but really not bad.
Could be sipped, but maybe better to have it with coke.
Defenately worth it. Great flavours with a small rough edge...
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.
Ușoare note de cafea și tutun, un pic amărui.. Bun pentru gama sa.
Personal am vrut sa-i dau un 6,5 dar nu se poate. E bun dar vreau sa testez si variantele superioare. Recomand.
