Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Bought a bottle of Ron Centenario 18y at the San Jose airport in Costa Rica when heading home. I have never seen an 18 year old Ron Centenario being offered anywhere, so it has to be a brand offering. $29 a bottle versus $32 for the 20y Centenario at the tax free. Bottle and label design is much nicer than the 20y. Dark and deep color. The initial flavor is very nice and complex, but the taste turns into whisky like very quickly. Mild burn at the end. By the end of the day, this is super close to the Ron Centenario 20y rum, which is not a bad thing.
I've had the 30-Year Centenario and its one of the best, the 18 is nice all the caramel, smoke flavors and smooth but you might as well go for the oldies but goodies.
...was worth a try, but dissapointing in direct comparison to the just two year older Centenario 20, which by the way I really do like...a lot.
kann jedoch mit seinen grossen Brüdern nicht mithalten.
