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.
Now this is some good stuff
I am admittedly a beginner in the rum world, but this is by far the best rum I've ever had. I've sampled a few rums at bars, etc. but have only recently started buying bottles for my home. I don't think this bottle is going to last very long, as I will surely go through it quickly. It's so good, I almost hate to drink it by myself.
I normally enjoy rum on the rocks but could easily see myself drinking this straight up. Has absolutely no burn or bite and goes down very smoothly. Some rums have a good flavor once you can get past the initial sharpness, but this is smooth from start to finish. I can't imagine what the 25 or 30 year tastes like. I assume my mind would be blow if I tried one of those.
Mahagoni Farben im Glas, einer der farblich schönsten Rum.
Noch delikater Seine Nase, warme Holznoten, dunkle Schokolade, Trockenfrüchte.....
Im Gaumen kommt dies noch viel intensiver mit einer angenehmen Süsse, Tabak, Toffee...
Der Abgang wunderbar laaang !
Ein Rum für Geniesser und solche die es werden wollen.
Mahogany colors in the glass, one of the most colorful rum.
Even more delicate His nose, warm wood notes, dark chocolate, dry fruits .....
The taste, this is much more intense with a pleasant sweetness, tobacco, toffee ...
The finish wonderfully loooong!
A rum for connoisseurs and those who want to be.
With so many great ratings, I'm not sure how mine went so wrong for the Centenario 20, which I sipped on at Rumfest London 2016. I found it to be seriously sweet, far too much for me - and I have a hugely sweet palette! Notes of nutmeg and wheat came through as well, with a short nice finish. I'm being gracious with my 6, really it was closer to 5 but other based on other opinions I'm guessing either my bottle was a little off or my taste buds were acting up. I'll try it again when I can
simple Spanish style rum. Many do it better. Painfully sweet. Nice spanish style nose,
but down hill from there. I read the ratings and wonder if we are talking about the same product. UGH.
I loved the 20 tremendously and can't wait to get my hands on another bottle! It was definitely smooth and very relaxing. I'm ashamed/not ashamed to say that I might have enjoyed it a little to much that I was done with it in two weeks lol I"m still not sure which I like better when compared to the 25 however, when compared to the 30 I definitely loved it more so.
Sweet, very smooth, just delicious. I prefer this over Zacapa 23 in that it has a hint of honey and seems a tad fuller and creamier. Is it as good as Zacapa XO? No, but it's also 50% less expensive.
Sugar: 40 gpl. This is a sweet but very smooth rum. The port and sherry is quite evident in the color, smell, and taste. Similar to the Dos Maderas PX 5+5. Almost no after burn. Great rum to serve to Port or Sherry drinker. Would go great with a cigar...so I am told as I don't smoke.
Updated April 2018. After sampling the 30 year old version I decided to move this down to an 8. Still a very good rum, but the 25 year old is much better and is just a bit more per bottle.
Alkohol: 40 %
Aroma: Hřejivá vůně, med a koření, kandované ovoce, jemně kůže. (86 b)
Chuť: Nádherná jemnost, vyzrálost a medová sladkost, učiněné pohlazení po jazyku. Delikátně jemná, ale v dochuti přidá na intenzitě, objeví se koření a příjemný vliv dřeva. Dozvuk je krásný, táhlý. Po odvětrání se ve sklence objeví vůně dřevěné dýhy, až do cedru. (93 b)
Shrnutí: Za luxusní chuť a výborný dozvuk zaokrouhluju hodnocení směrem nahoru. Dělají se dvě verze, jedna v kůži, kterou jsem sehnal, a druhá klasická s papírovou ozdobnou krabicí.
