Tasty, but not quite great
Můj asi nejoblíbenější rum na běžné večerní popíjení na dobrou noc. Po práci si nalít jednu skleničku a pomalu usrkávat a přitom vychutnávat jeho zajímavě jemnou drsnost na jazyku. Malinko nasládlý, ale spíše jen stopově, kdy ostrost sladkost přehluší a nakonec na jazyku zůstane opravdová chuť rumu.
Clean tasting and straightforward. This ain't no dark rum, but it's simple and satisfying. Smooth without a lot of ethanol burn. Perhaps a bit too light or simple for some people, but it has an awesome flavor that doesn't hit you with lots of ethanol or oak. I think it's very well balanced and delicious. Try some!
I tried this side by side with the Centenario 9 year and the 12 year. Though I feel the 12-year is best, I prefer this to the 9 year as it is sweeter and tastes better to me.
Smells and tastes of sweet caramel and brown sugar. Very simple, but good; and it's a bargain for the low price of only $17.99 (2017 price)!
Perhaps the one downside is that it's not as smooth as older rums, and has a slight burn for 40%abv.
We discovered Centenario in Costa Rica (okay, they pushed the Hades out of it, and I'm glad for that). The 20-yr version tastes more like a mixing rum and this, to me, tastes more like a sipping rum. The 20-yr is nearly gone while this little bottle is still mostly full - I'm not much of a sipper.
