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.
Detta är en av mina favoriter. I bland tycker jag till och med den är bättre än sin storebror på 25år
I bought this for $40 and then I saw it for $27 on sale. Came home and tried some more. At that point I wished I had bought more at the sale price. I like it in a Cuba Libre
One of my first sipping rums - this one and the zcapa 23 opened "pandoras box" ;-)
The Centenario XX is the big brother of this one... which was the one that opened my eyes to the world of rum... and since then, I've been looking for perfection...
This one is great... if you can't find the XX ;)
This well crafted solera will please most rum fans. It just doesn't really have anything to make it stand out from the pack. Slightly overpriced imo.
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!👍🏻👍🏻
Really nice rum with nice aroma. Great sipper. Loved it
Not too strong. Just smooth enough to be pleasant but not too sweet as to be weak or lame. Very good value for the money. Best enjoyed on the rocks with good company in the sun on any beach in Costa Rica.
Il faut toujours avoir une bouteille de centenario 20 dans sa cave, à défaut du 25.
Il plaira aux novices ainsi qu'aux confirmés ce qui prouve son talent.
Rond, pas trop sucré, des notes de caramel, café, chéne...
I sin prisklasse er den toppen af poppen. En alle vil kunne drikke med det største velbehag
Once again, not a fan of overly sweet rum but centenario is an exception. Drinking straight up is a must.
Non sans rappeler le Diplomatica Reserva. Doux, vanillé, il reste subtil et très intéressant. Il donne envie de gouter au 30 ans !
Dark, mahogany. Moderate tear in the cup
Not too much alcohol perceived, definitely sugar cane notes, honey, do not smell much wood but if there is a memory of it. Very similar to the Zacapa 23, but thinner, less alcoholic punch in the nose.
Taste #1 pure:
Something creamy, slightly burning but decreases rapidly as soon as you hold in your mouth, it does not burn in the throat and has a bitterness in the end, however has a memory of tasty honeys sugar and bitter cocoa would say.
Then nose a little water:
Water fades a little bit the perceived earlier, a slight odor memory of sugar honeys.
Taste #2 with little mineral water.
By lowering the alcohol, not any burning present in your mouth, completely smoothness.
Still tastes of chocolate, the memory of the concentration of honeys have lost some
Recommendation: to take straight in the glass or add a solid big ice cube, lowering a little alcohol if you prefer, but mostly pure is better choice.
The product is rich, smooth, however the complexity is higher in products such as "Dos maderas" from Spain or "flor de caña 18" from Nicaragua.
As it is a rum to enjoy and share, in the market there are similar profiles such as Cartavio 12 years from Peru (slightly less smooth) and Ron Zacapa 23 from Guatemala.
assez doux et vanillé, je l'ai très apprécié pour ma part
Aromatic, sweet, smooth....simply another from premium family.
Tæt på det bedste, fantastisk eftersmag, der bare varer ved.
A good, but too sweet rum.
Dont take the 20 as "real years" - it only says "20 years solera system" which means, that this is a "blend" of differently aged rums in which the "oldest" is 20 years, not the youngest.
Sugar: 40 gpl. This is a sweet but very smooth rum. The port and sherry is quite evident in the color, smell, and taste. Very similar to the Papa's Pilar Dark and the Dos Maderas PX 5+5. Almost no after burn. Great rum to serve to Port or Sherry drinker. I would purchase this again.
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.
Mature, oily, complex...just a bit too sweet but a lovely velvety truly special tipple
Really good but 25 year is better. Go for the 25.
A bit too sweet for me to grant it with eight bottles but it is still undeniable a good rum.
This one I like a lot. Sweet and tasty with a lot of flavor. Doesn't burn in the mouth. The low cost is certainly also very appealing This is a re-buy even before its empty.
Yes, it's probably sweetened. No I don't care since its taste has blown me away.
