If you are building a rum critic's vocabulary, Ron Centenario 5-year is a good place to start. That's because it is difficult to find any flavor to comment upon, apart from the flowery sugar note with a hint of ginger. Finding more than blandness to comment upon suggests that you have a nose for reviewing. This rum mixes well with lime juice and salt, yech!

This rum screams Costa Rica. Its on every shelf in the country, its cheap, will not give you a hangover (probably) and is consistent, which is more than I can say for most. Grab one, drink it, buy another.

although many might disagree...

Very light in colour
Slightly funky nose with hints of over ripe banana
Very sweet in the mouth (4/5)
The esters carry through, giving it a spiritey note mixing with prominent alcohol.
Moderate burn and the aromas linger.

Young and lively, if you like Jamaican pot stills, this might work for you, but the added sugar is a downer.

When we were in Costa Rica the Centenario they served tasted much different than this. I think they were serving a 2-yr, but now I'm not so sure after looking at the selections. They showed us the bottle and it sure did say 2-yr on it. All I know is that what they were serving was tasty. This was okay and I think many people will enjoy it. I generally prefer silver rum, but this pulled me back to the darker side.

Ron Centenario 5 year old is easily available in the US. The initial flavor turns into whisky like very quickly. The 5y is dry and woody, with strong afterburn at the end. Easily available in liquor stores if you are into whisky like rums, but this is not my kind of rum at all.

Smooth but I think its a mixer to best enjoy but a true delight.

The color should have been an indicator from the start. Very light and lacking color. Smell was ok but very harsh and lacking flavor. Maybe good for mixing, not neat.

First rum what I tried In Costa Rica and it's...disappointment. It's not even standard taste of OK rum. You can just with coke.

Buen ron para tomarlo combinado o en mix. Ideal para cocteles. El ponerle 6 no significa que sea malo, es bueno pero para mezclar.

Had this my first trip to Costa Rica, sat on the deck, pouring down rain, drank a bottle mixed with Mango Juice! Fantastic! Enjoy on your next trip to CR! Pura Vida!

I think this is the traditional one, at Costa Rica too many people used to drink it. It is good for mixing and the price is not bad.
