Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
For it's price I have expected something better. Don't get me wrong, it is very nice. Little bit too sweet. But you can buy same quality for half price.
Dégusté en parallèle d'un Millonario XO, il a su faire la différence :)
Ce rhum présente une couleur très foncée, issue de 30 ans de fûts de chêne blanc américain dont l’intérieur a été passé à la flamme, et qui ont élevé du whisky. Le nez est intense, profond, vanillé & fruité. Des pointes de caramel et de miel se font aussi sentir. Il est moins sirupeux que le Millonario XO ou le Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, donnant dès le départ une sensation de légèreté. Le rhum fait des jambes sur les parois du verre. En bouche, tous ces parfums sont bien présents, et s’étalent dans un temps infini sans lourdeur au palais. Le final est légèrement acidulé, relevant ainsi cette sublime gorgée !
die Flasche erinnert an den Zacapa Platino und der Rum ist auch fast so gut,etwas süsser und im Abgang leider nicht ganz so lang. Vom PLV her ist der 25 jährige klar die bessere Wahl,Wer aber ein paar Euro übrig hat kauft sich lieber diese Flasche als zuzusehen wie die Brüsseler Idioten mit Ihren Bankrottbänkstern den Finanzsondermüll ganz verbrennen,Für den Fall dass das Finanzirrenhaus implodiert sollte man solche Flaschen bereithalten als nette Untehaltung beim Feuerwerk --))
I just tasted the 25 year old sibling. They are very similar, but the 30 year old is a bit better, a bit more, a bit smoother. Also little caramel and vanilla. It is not too sweet but nice at the palate. It is long lasting. Great stuff, but a bit expensive.
Nicht so übersüsst wie sein 10 Jahre jüngerer kleiner Bruder. Ausgewogen, ohne Schwächen. Mild und angenehm zu trinken. Nach kurzem atmen lassen ein vielschichtiges Aroma das beim trinken nicht erntäuscht. Diverse Geschmacksnuancen wechseln sich ab und hinterlassen einen mittel langanhaltenen Abgang. Ein sehr guter Rum, aber es fehlt ihm ein bisschen Charakter für einen Spitzenrum.
One of the finest rum i have a drank. Exceptional aftertaste, smooth, good balanced, sweet, to sweet, exclusive notes. In one word ,, Sublime"!
I don't agree that this is worse than the 25 year old. Not as sweet and much more complex. If it's worth the extra cash, is up to you. I'm glad I got it.
I bought today a Diplomatico Ambassador and a Centenario 30. After being heavily disappointed with the first one, I have hope in expensive stuff again. Very good bargain at 130 .- (swiss francs).
After trying the diplomatico, the absence of alcohol in nose and taste is almost chocking. Perfectly balanced and as sweet as it gets whitout being "kitchy". Nice development, decently long aftertaste. The only problem I can think of is that the bottle won't last long in my cabinet :/
It took a very long to to make this rum and it took almost (seemingly) as long for me to find a bottle that I did not need to import from France!
With that said this is worth the wait, the price and I agree with many of the positive reviews. My first taste of Oak, Molasses, and hints of vanilla hooked me all the way. Now that I have found a place where I can easily purchase this rum, I have added a couple of bottles to the back of my bar, and would recommend that you do.
Sehr guter Rum. Erinnert mich an millonario xo, aber weniger süß. Absolut empfehlenswert.
In my opinion. One of the best rums in the world. On the sweet side perfection
This was a good rum to have. I bought the bottle hoping to be blown away and it fell short. Only because I am a BIG BIG fan of the 20 and 25. I was hoping this one would make me blow me away and have me begging for more but it fell short of that. I think that if the price was comparable to the other two then I definitely would rate this a 10! SO, I guess in essence for the money, 20 and 25 is the way to go in my humble opinion.
Some of the cheaper Centenario 20, is very caramelly, too much for me.
This is much better! Nose is brilliant, soft and inviting!
Taste is powerfull at first, a tad of alcohol. Its semi-dry and a nice long aftertaste. Very very pleasent rum! Reminds me somewhat of Unhiq XO
I make it short:
This Rum is really good, very smooth and tasty but its value for money is a bit behind... You get similar good quality with the Ron Centenario 25 or 20, thats why i give this rum only 9 instead of 10 stars.
Complexité des arômes, un grand plaisir
Really smooth and tasty rum, but for it's price you can get two 25-years Ron Centenario (nearly similar taste).
Was part of Rum Calendar 2016:
Smooth, mild, well balanced, sweet, but not so much character - and probably overprized.
A pleasure again and again to drink this solera rum. Year by year the same nice sweet flavours.
My first Centenario. At the Tallinn airport in Estonia there is a relatively new and fantastic wine bar. They have a huge selection of some nice vintages as well as Rums, Gins and Whiskeys to taste.
I almost liked this Centenario but looks like that someone has been adding way too much sweetness into it for my taste. Sometimes this seems to be a issue with these aged Rums. I can't deny it, I do like more the sweet and oaky ones than totally dry ones, but this was even too much for me.
I had the chance comparing the 3 centenarios (20,25 and 30) and there is for sure a difference, but it is not so big as I expected, I think the price is just too high comparing it with the 20 years one. But please dont get me wrong it is a great rum.
A good rum, very woody taste. The 25 year is a smoother and more enjoyable flavor
A smooth rum. High quality, but a little sweet for my taste.
Comme dit dans le titre plutôt bon mais ne correspond pas vraiment pour cette tranche de prix.
I recievwd this bottle as a gift and was very pleasantly surprised! It had a very nice flavor, went down smooth, and had almost zero oak finish. Also, not the sweetest rum I've tasted....but it is on the sweeter side. This is a rum I will always have a bottle of in mu collection.
