Plna chuť po vanilce, ořechu a banánu. Závěr dlouhý a příjemne sladký.

I’m really torn between the Centenario 20 year at $55 per bottle, and the 25 year at $65 per bottle. Both are excellent choices. This one has a similar profile to the 25 with a bit of complexity and also some sweetness. Great over ice or as a neat sipper. Don’t bother with the 12 year, start with the 20 year.

Spending many surf trip in Costa Rica in the 80s-90s I have always like Centenario & Abuelo from neighboring Panama. So nice to see Ron Centenario grow into one of the top brand in the world. A bit sweet, but so smooth and lots of depth. Very easy to drink.

Some clear chocoalte on the nose, caramel and nice sweetness in the smooth taste.

I bought the bottle some two years ago, what I can remember is it was sweet, with sweetness reaching liqueur levels, with a quite ordinary taste of toffee and vanilla you can find in most Dominican rums, and virtually no aftertaste. The rum is quite smooth, yes, but nothing much else. I did not find any hint of aged rum in this solera, no oak, no char, nothing. The sugar masks quite unremarkable rum composition here. In my opinion, this is a waste of money.

With absolutely zero burn neat, I have never had a rum go down easier. This is a dangerous drink -- I cant stop sipping! Its on the sweeter side (which I prefer) without tasting artificial or syrupy. I would say this is similar to Diplomatico Reserva but much more natural feel. Vanilla and caramel on the nose. Strong flavors of brown sugar, butterscotch and caramel mmmm this is easily one of the best rums I've tried to date. It's like chewing on sugar cane. Glad I gave this one a shot as this will definitely be a new go to sipper for me. If you have the option to try this do not pass it up!

Strong on noise- but in mouht is much smoother and a bit sweet (much less than zacapa). I would buy it again - specially once i am back in CR

Buen ron, fuerte en nariz - pero en la boca es mas suave, dulzón ... pero no tanto (menos que el zacapa de seguro)
No muy complejo
Lo compraria de nuevo... en especial cuando vuelva a Costa Rica

Less on the sweet side but still a great taste and easy to love.

bought this one in Miami. According to one of my friends it was a very nice rum. It looks amazing with the leather. Never seen it after that.
Nice rum, my first bottle i bought and brought back from US. Still have the bottle.
