Now this is some good stuff
Nose: less caramel than the 20-year old, but more groovy oak wood. Subtle, mature.
Palate: slightly oily, very smooth and rounded, very long lasting aftertaste. No sharpness. Also a very nice one, maybe even slightly better than the 20-year old.
This is a very solid rum. Tastes smooth and fairly sweet with caramel and toffee notes. Not the most complex flavor, but very easy to drink neat. The smell is not my favorite, a bit astringent which is really the only reason I did not rate higher.
This rum is nice, smoother that the 20th years Centenario, but I would prefer the 20 years old one, specially because of the price.
I am from Costa Rica and didn't knew that Centenario produced aged rums, but I am fairly new in the aged rum enjoyment. I really like it, it is a really smooth rum, I like the aromas and how it feels in the mouth. I do think it tends towards the sweet much more than I would prefer I think that balancing the sugar will make this rum even better. I am proud to see that my country has this amazing rum, I would recommend it to anyone who wants to begin tasting aged rums or wants to have something exotic in their collection.
Premium rum from Costa Rica. Aged 25 years in small American oak. This is a Solera style aged rum. This is sweet, rich tasting rum, and a hint of exotic tropical fruits.
A little pricy for this style of rum but definitely worth it. If buying Ron Centenario I'd recommend this over the 30yr.
