Very smooth, delicius, perfect for the sweet rum. Infinite fruit aftertaste.

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.

I have quite a nice collection of rums and this is as good any rum I have. Nice aroma, taste with no afterburn. I prefer on the rocks.This rum is too good to add mixers. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

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.

Skvělý, slaďoučký, skvělá konzistence, chuťově paráda. Bohužel nemohu porovnat 20 přímo s 25, která do mě zahučela v minulosti velmi rychle, tak jen asi odhaduji a myslim si že 20 je možná o fous sladší (?) a zkrátka baví mě moc :) Nyní, kdy píši toto mé hodnocení, mám stanovené nejoblíbenější rumové trio: Millonario XO + 15 a tenhle vysokej dvacetiletej hubeňour!

This one is soooo great. Sweet, but not too sweet. Just for me. And soft, so soft. Hint of caramel and vanilla.
I like to taste 25 and 30 years old also, but I don´t know if I have give them afer that 11 or something. :)

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

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.

I REALLY like the Centenario 25 and 30, and so I tried this side by side with them. It was VERY close. This is a bit sweeter, much like the El Dorado 15 is sweeter than the El Dorado 21. I like the extra aging on the 25 and 30, but I also like the sweetness of the 20. I'm torn between the three. It's very close, but this is the winner for me. An exceptional rum that is very underrated in my opinion.

Nice sweet rum not to complex, with a hint of licorice in the end.... absolutely a keeper

A great offering from Centenario. Really nice and sweet

Posted 6 months ago by Gork from United States with 12 ratings

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 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.

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!!!

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.

This is a bottle that grows on you. It is very smooth, nice hit of maple syrup on the finish.

Detta är en av mina favoriter. I bland tycker jag till och med den är bättre än sin storebror på 25år

Posted almost 5 years ago by Jonny Olsson from Sweden with 162 ratings

Tested together with Zacapa XO. Centenario is in my opinion in same legau or even better, depending of what you prefer. Centenario is a little bit sweeter but also thicker. i will buy again!👍🏻👍🏻

Enjoy this rum, very good stuff and not too expansive. Sweet rum with notes of chocolate, vanilla, fruits and à little bit spiced.

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€ !
