Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Ron Centenario 20-Year rum is produced from Costa Rican sugar cane which is turned into molasses before aging in American white oak barrels up to 20 years using the solera aging system.
The company producing Ron Centenario 20-Year rum used to be named Seagram de Costa Rica, but in 2002 changed its name to Centenario Internacional. The rum wasn't sold outside of Costa Rica until 2007.
vůně sladká, karamel, banány, koření, chuť sladká, jemná, skořice, sakra dobrý 👍
Tout d'un vrai solera. En plus fait à partir de mélasse et de miel de canne.
Très enrobé avec cette pointe de sherry.
Nice flavor of vanilla with a hint of brandy/cognac that reminds me of the less sweet Santa Teresa 1796 (better IMO). This is a real sugar bomb, syrupy, and I personally don't want to have more than 1 drink of it at a time.
First off, I'm into sweet rums. And damn this hit a spot. As soon as I tasted it, unexpected surge of sweetness all over my mouth. Flavor: caramel predominantly, toffee, vanilla. Smell: mostly caramel. Absolutely no alcohol sting, throats down like water
Smell: vanilla, caramel, some yeast, fruit (orange), sweet. The vanilla scent is more intense at 25th, overlapping other aromas. It also smells more sweet than the 25th.
Taste: strong sweetness, caramel, burned sugar, orange peel (slightly bitter),
some spice, somewhat burning finish. Sweet aftertaste
Fruit: 2.5 / 5
Mildness: 3.5 / 5
Not a bad rum, but I haven't found anything special in it yet.
Geruch: Vanille, Karamell, etwas Hefe, Frucht (Orange), Süße. Der Vanilleduft ist beim 25 intensiver, überlagert andere Aromen. Er riecht auch süßer als der 25.
Geschmack: starke Süße, Karamell, gebrannter Zucker, Orangenschale (leicht bitter), etwas Würze, etwas brennender Abgang. Süßer Nachgeschmack
Kein schlechter Rum, ich habe allerdings noch nichts besonderes in ihm entdeckt.
Very smooth, delicius, perfect for the sweet rum. Infinite fruit aftertaste.
Great Rum. Just stocked up with a couple bottles for my stash.
So after reading the reviews and ratings here I picked up a bottle when I was in Miami. This is a solid 8.8 everything considered. The nose is candy, the palate is caramel, butterscotch, and natural spice which combines in an absolutely magnificent mid palate. The aftertaste is gentle warmth and rum cake. It is a sweet rum with the distinct “Solera” aftertaste, but it is by far the best Solera I have had yet. I grabbed this bottle for $39 which I now consider to be an absolute steal. The ratings aren’t wrong. This will be a staple in my cabinet if I can get a local store to carry it. Delightful.
This has definitely piqued my interest in Centenario's rums. While certainly not the best rum I've ever had, this one is very good. I really enjoy everything about it's flavor. I would definitely not ever mix with this one... it's a sipper for sure. I love it with some ice, personally. I also found that it was good to let it breathe, for the same amount of time as a scotch (1 minute for every year it's aged... so, in this case, 20 minutes... or if you happen to have an aerator, run it through that then let it breathe for 10 to 15 minutes).
Very much recommended.
I enjoy this rum above all others. I yearn for this rum because it did not make my move to the islands and I have yet to locate a local purveyor. The price has come down since I began to drink this... however, I feel it is worth every penny at $65+ It has a great smell, gorgeous color, warm flavor, and a mellow ... melt... as it washes down the hatch. Smooth as silk and I cannot wait to get another case.
I really like this rum. Sweet taste and very Good aftertaste.
A great rum with an exceptional aftertaste - one of my all time favourites
At first taste is very sweet but after a second has litlle bit fruity or sugar
Just average sweet rum. Quite soft taste but nothing particulary interesting.
Smells after sugar maybe a bit of fruit too.
Caramel and vanilla in flavour, sweet taste in the beginning, then little harsh ending. Quite nice complete taste.
Sweet taste of vanilla with tones of cinnamon and slight burn
This is one of the best rum I ever had. It is smooth, not that much sweet and very well balanced. In taste hints of banana, tobacco, caramel and cream. This one is much better that a lot of other rums at double price.
Mit diesem Rum lässt sich ein schöner Abend noch mehr versüssen. Passend zum Dessert.
I really prefer sweet rums and this is definitely one of my favorites! Ufff can't even recall how much bottles I already demolished!
Kostarický rum velmi sladké chuti, o dost lepší než jeho mladší kolegové.
I like this rum, it has full flavour, sweet but not too much, very smooth
a well balanced rhum not too sweet, an interesting one I taste for the 1st time
