...as the 25 years, but almost. Honestly you cannot do anything wrong with the whole Centenario rum family!


A good addition to any rum cabinet. Not to sweet with subtle hints of flavor.


smooth , slightly alcoholic finishish
sweet, rummmy


Skvely solera rum. Vona menej vyrazna intenzitou, vyrazne sladka. Chut kopiruje vonu, rum je dost sladky, ale nie neprijemne. Ma vyraznu a hlboku rumovu chut, je velmi jemny, alkohol prijemne stipe na jazyku. Pre milovnikov sladkych rumov vyborna volba!!!


I tasted this one at Sugarcane in LV based on advice from the bartender. Color is medium amber, with caramel and cinnamon on the nose. Vanilla arrived first on the tongue, followed by coffee on the throat. I cannot buy this locally, but am looking for a mail-order source!

Sweeter and less complex than a Zacapa 23. Great nose, not to much alcohol. Taste of chocolate, creamy, vanilla. Nice sweet rum


I'm new to the rum world so take this with a grain of salt. This rum is my favorite so far. Subtly sweet, great aromas and feels silky in your mouth. Hard to sip because you don't want to put it down. I highly recommend this one.


Wow! So smooth and refined. I could drink this all night.


One of the best in my collection. Compares easily with rum of double the price.


I prefer sweeter ones (but not too much) and this is one of good foundings. Just a bit lower on my list from A.H.Rise NonPlus ultra. I can recommend it.

Super long avant de trouver une bouteille au canada. Un goût d épicee et de fruit. Bonne longueur en bouche et complexe. Je le suggère à tous.


Like many, we tried this in Costa Rica. We went on a search to find it in the US and were happy to find good ol' Publix Liquors carries it in Florida. It's a smooth rum and is great in a Cuba Libre. I wouldn't call it a sipping rum at all, it's more geared towards mixed drinks. Oddly, the 7 year tastes more like a sipping rum to me.


Beautiful amber color with a well balanced picy, round taste with hints of vanilla and tobacco and yet a strong presence of alcohol. Really good.


It is very sweet and smooth. Easy to drink. If you prefer sweeter rums, you can't miss this.


dalsi z mojich top rumov. vobec sa nebojim dat 10 bodov, pretoze oblubujem ovocne, sladke rumy a tento ma vsetko co od neho chcem. 10b som dal aj esperu xo ktory stoji menej ako centenario no ked si priplatite dostanete aj sladke cherry. vona ostrejsia, co ma za nasledok ze chut ostava dlho v ustach a na jazyku. ked pominie po chvilke chcete ten pocit zazit znovu a takto dookola. velmi tazke tento rum prestat pit.


Eva’s Caribbean Kitchen in Laguna Beach is a rum lovers haven and Eva is a rum encyclopedia. Over 400 I think at her restaurant and she knows each and can guide you in what to drink. I am probably a 5 of 10 in fine rum knowledge but she is a 15. After we discussed my favorites she recommends this and was spot on. Molasses and vanilla of course, with a touch of cashew or some other nut. This is the smoothest rum I have tried and not as sweet as others like Zacapa but has enough sweetness to make this my top rum.


First of all very good price, less than 40€ !
Battle very simple, they care only about what is in the bottle. Starting from the first smell coming from the glass:
- soft flover running in the nose, no alcool punch but soft plum and caramel
- density perfect, in the glass you could see the mark leave from the rhum
- forst zip in the mouth plain but interesting, very balance sweetness with a bouque of fruit like plam, nuts little accent of cinnamong but the best in coming after swallow ... amazing sense of First of all very good price, less than 40€ !

In one word... WOW !
I tested more than 40 rhum.. one of the best 5.
In one word ... WOW


Una delicia, mucha suavidad y mucho chocolate. En el paladar no quema ni un poquito. Una dulzura bien lograda.

I compare this very favourably to my go-to El Dorado 12/15. It is similarly sweet and smooth, but the sweetness and the vanilla flavour are both more subtle. Add a slightly better 'afterburn', and this could be just about the best regular sipping rum around (for me). It's a shame it isn't easier to find.


Picked up a bottle of this tonight. First time trying Ron Centenario as it's always a few $s more than others in similar class. But wow...it's good. Tad on the sweet side. But just delicious. Tried neat + on the rocks, but I think the best way will be to chill bottle in the freezer and drink neat / frozen glass. The flavors are a tad spicy on the aftertaste + complex and ice takes a bit of that away. But this is some darn good rum. Will spend the $ and try the 25 yr next.


Belle note de vanille et d’orange confite
En bouche.
Au nez on sent bien les fruits mûrs


Tento rum by mohl patřit klidně do řady A.H. Riise. Baví mně jak vymysleli silnou sladkost s mírně štiplavým projevem 40%, hned ale přejde do příjemného zahřátí a pěkným dlouhým závěrem. Přes tu sladkost těžko rozpoznávám jednotlivé chutě, ale řekl bych že jde z karamelu do banánu. Rozhodně žádný kokos a s vanilkou to tam taky přehnáno. Takže za mně o bod lepší než Plantation XO. Prostě mi to bez té vanilky a kokosu chutná víc. Navíc ta banánová sladkost přetrvá. Takže to není jen cukrové jako elixíry. Jak jsem psal na začátku dobře to vymysleli.


One of the best rum i have ever tried. Nice smooth and no after burn. And an amazing smell. Perfect price quality


I picked this one up in Florida yesterday for $40. Since my bottles of 12 year old solera and 7 year old solera have been long gone, I had to judge this one based upon memory only, along with my reviews for those two.

When I got it home, the aromas from an ounce of it in a snifter reminded me of El Dorado 12. Wow! Was I about to find another rum that could rival ED12? Upon tasting it, all such fantasies went out the window. All I could taste was pepper and extreme sweetness, with a slightly bitter after taste. If I wanted pepper, I would stick with some of those peppery tequilas. Then after reading fellow reviews, I found out that this one is a sugar bomb. Looks like I have to put some of my bland dry rums to use into toning down the sweetness on this one.

This one is NOT a good buy and I wound up initially rating it as a 7.2 in my spreadsheet. I am so glad that I waited so long to finally try this one because if I had started out with this one, I may have rated it as a 9 or 10. Comparing to my true 9 and 10 ratings, there is no way for this one!

A few days later, I tried it on the rocks. Not even ice cubes made from Ozarka spring water could help it. Then I tried it it in a Cuba Libre, which only fared as average. I then had thoughts about pouring the remainder of the bottle down the toilet, but luckily I had orange juice in the fridge to save it. OJ mixed 50/50 with this rum is the only way to save this stuff. They really goofed with the added sugars on this batch. My rating went down to a 6. I will stick with their 12 year solera.
