I really like the Ron Centenario Rums, and I like this one as well. But to me, this falls just a bit shy of their 12 year (more sophisticated) and 7 year (sweeter).

Smells and tastes of brown sugar and caramel. Not as smooth as their 12 year and their even older rums, but good. If you're into budget rums, I'd recommend their 7-year to this (or better still the 12-year if you can afford it). But this is good too.

Alkohol: 40 %
Původ: Kostarika
Aroma: Nenáročná rumová vůně, která není nijak bohatá. Jemně vanilka a náplň rumových pralinek, navrch příjemně dřevitá, trochu nasládlá. (80 b)
Chuť: Chuť už je bohatší, než aroma. Vanilka, dřevo, mléčná čokoláda. Dozvuk je ostřejší, štiplavý. (82 b)
Shrnutí: Investice 432 korun v akci u Vykupto (díky Jerry!)nelituji, vzhledem k ceně se jedná o dobrého společníka na všední nenáročné popíjení. Běžná cena je kolem sedmi stovek, tolik bych za něj nedal, v této cenové třídě se už dají sehnat rumy mnohem lepší. Přímo jsem srovnával s Matusalem 10y, který se prodává za stejné peníze, jako Centenario v akci, a Matusalem byl v chuti vyrovnaným soupeřem, ve vůni pak jasně lepší.
Body: 81

Picked up in NH state store at $24.99. For the price, this Centenario is not bad. I have had other rums at higher price and they did not meet the level of this one. Nose is pleasant, Warm taste, easy finish. Comparing this to Bacardi 8 at the same price point, this one is definitely one to try. The only surprise was the twist top and slow pour bottle.

A nice light mahogany colour with good legs in the glass. Alcohol smell goes away after resting leaving a balanced woody nose. Not too dry with vanilla and a nice woodyness on the palate. Little burn and easily sipped. Only $37 at LCBO

For the money... if you enjoy an evening cocktail... every evening.. .You can't go wrong here. On the rocks of course. ALSO works well when mixing with various juices, ginger ale, or any concoction you can dream of. At $26 a bottle... experiment away. A worthy bar stock.

I wouldnt recomend this young version of centenario. in its price category, you can get much better rums. If you want a good Centenario, go for 20yo-25yo, not for this one. Some notes of vanilla, but thats all it has.

Came across this rum on a whim and was pleasantly surprised. It's very approachable and easily enjoyed with a few ice cubes. Outstanding value!

I have tried rums from Centenario aged 7, 12, and 20 years. By far, this one has the best taste and value over all those other ones at only $24 US. Since this one is very hard to find any more, their 12 year would rank as a close second. I could have also bought their 25 year yesterday, but after a bad experience with their overly sugared 20 year, I wisely left it up on the shelf.

This one is indeed dry and it is easy to see that it has no additives. Notes of wood and vanilla greet the palate. with the burn kept to a bare minimum. I must hand it to this distiller for being honest on their age statements because these are not from the solera system.

Weich und rund im Geschmack, leider dadurch auch etwas Austauschbar. Ein Rum für so vor dem TV.
