Nothing special but perfectly fine for a mixer and an occasional sipper.

Conmemorativo takes a lot flavour from oak barrels, which were previously used for whiskey and brandy. The aroma and the flavor make it a little sharper, but still sweet. The barrels also give this rum a pretty amber color and a fine smoky aroma. For a good price, you will not get anything extra, but it isnt't a bad purchase either. And watch out for a bit tricky plug!

Bon rhum très sur le caramel et des notes chaudes.

Is this a complex great rum? No but this is a very decent tasty straightforward dram. Sweetness is just right. Doesn't seem like there is any added sugar here. Nothing objectionable here whatsoever. The flavors are good but somewhat understated. It has good mouth feel with a little butteriness. It is smooth with very little burn. It is simply a good everyday rum that I have no problem drinking neat. Better than most at this price point.

Light on the color, ok on the taste and smoothness. About what I would expect from a bottle at this price. Not great but passable.

Nose: spice and caramel
Taste: spice and caramel
Finish: damp wood
If I'm stuck on a deserted island with a case of this stuff, I will happily go through it. But I don't see that happening in the foreseeable future (you know, because most people can predict shipwrecks...) In the grand scheme of rum: not great, not bad, just there.

Ron Centenario 9 year old is easily available in the US. The initial flavor is pretty decent, but the taste turns into whisky like very quickly. The most surprising fact is that the 9y is much more smoother than the 12y. The 9y is quite dry and woody, with very mild afterburn at the end. Easily available in liquor stores if you are into whisky like rums, but this is not my kind of rum.

I had a tasting of 7y, 9y, 12y and anejo special. The best was 12y and anejo special. 7y and 9y were behind. But these are not exceptional. 12y and anejo are average rums and the others are below average.

It's a strange one.. I think it really does taste like a blend of basic Rum with basic Whiskey. Woody, little citrus, little vanilla, not very sweet, lightly colored. Quite warming.

I will say tho... it mixed excellently with Ginger Ale. The light mixture of flavors, warmth and it being not very sweet really enhances the flavor and bite of normal ginger ale while diluting the sweetness.
