Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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)!
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.
El sabor se vuelve muy fuerte para el final. Se recomienda para mesclar....
Very good rum. Taste is little bit stronger, but very pleasant.
I bought this on my first trip to Costa Rica several years. I believe it was $10. I bought it to mix with fruit juices, 7-up, and coke. I remember I really liked it. So one night, I tried it by itself as a shot. It was the best shot of rum I had ever had to that point. So then I tried it neat. And I was surprised I coh I'd enjoy it by itself. Now I am a kind of a rum guru thanks to this rum. Try to 20, 25 and 30 year of this brand. Those are 3 of my top 10 rums out there. This is a great CHEAP rum.
Quite delicious. Light toffee/caramel notes. It comes across though as if the barrel aging mellowed it out too much. Could be a little more complex...
As a costa rican I used to drink centenario 7 in most of the bars (it is the option when flor de caña 7 is not available).
In Eye, it has a good tear, quite slow and kinda amber dark color.
In nose there is some memories of sugar juice, a bit of vanilla and sweetness.
In taste it is quite smooth, creamy and kinda sweet, you can drink it straight from the glass but also a mix with Coke, Lemon and Angostura bitter feets really good.
Around 7.8 points
Not to sweet and great sipping rum for it's price.
Nothing wrong with it.
Frankly this is basically the same as the 9-year rum but with a little more of an edge. Just as with the 9-year it has a nice aroma Some little woodiness to it along with a nice vanilla flavor. A little more of an edge to it than the 9-year. I give both a 7 but it's more like a 7.75 for the 9-year and a 7.25 for the 7-year. Not much difference between the two. Whereas the 9-year makes for an acceptable sipping rum as well as a mixer, I feel the 7-year is best suited as a mixer and not as a sipper. Other than that they are pretty much twins. Works GREAT in Coke Zero.
This isn't a bad rum, little light in both color, body and flavor. It has good notes of vanilla up front but unfortunately it doesn't last through the finish. It isn't bad with a single ice cube however it is best destined for mixing.
Nice aroma, first taste is on dry side, bit burning, with bourbon aftertaste. Good "standard" also perfect for mixing.
For the price and if your looking for a good mixer to boost the flavor of your cocktail, you can’t go wrong with this rum. The complexity is starting to develop, however, with more time in the Cask the smoothness and flavors will really shine through.
Just had a couple of neat nips of this. Moderate flavors but goes down well. The bottle I bought is a 7 year anejo especial. It was priced at around $21 per bottle. Still puzzled by the bottle shaped like a traditional fifth, unlike the short squat bottle shown on display.
Okay on the rocks but I prefer this one with some Coke. Would be interested to try the older ones.
This price/quality rating is quite good (bottle a bit under €20). You can taste a bit of the 20 year old Centenario, but this one is much sharper and a less subtle taste. But still a good sipper.
Menej sladký, ale kvalitný a chutný rum. Bez nejakej výraznej korenistej chuti.
It’s golden colour and light smell is inviting. It is not very smooth but not too harsh either. The after taste is woody with a little caramel, not bitter.
I'm making all of the drinks in Bahama Bob Leonard's cocktail book and many call for Centernario 7 Year. I love them all and this rum adds just the right flavor to them. In is drinkable straight if you don't have anything older around as well.
This is a good sipping rum, and so far, goes well with ginger ale. Unlike my previous adventure I didn't have to let it breathe before I could drink it. I wish they would stop putting those pour spouts in the bottles.
I can smell a bit of vanilla, some oak, and something sweet I can't quite put my finger on. I may keep this in my cabinet. Good all around rum.
Considering this is very cheap rum, 6 is a great score. Very good value for money. Some sweetness, not too much alcohol sting. Almost good enough for sipping but will definitely be best used for mixing
My First rum. I take it from a Mall in Puntarenas Costa Rica
Disappointed, I love Costa Rica and the people, but this rum didn't give me butterflies in the stomach...
Neurazí, levný, není zbytečně sladký. Ve vůni cítím alkohol až moc
Not and a bad rum. Light Amber color in the glass. Noise is Light carmel and molasses with a little paint thinner. A touch of sweet on the front with a kick in the back. Mixes well with a little ginger ale. The Ale smoothes out any rough edges. Only down fall is the weird valve that is annoying when pouring. Why?
