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.
Vůně překvapivě nevýrazná, chuť na začátku trpká, pak přechází do sladka. Na první ochutnání poměr cena/víkon poměrně zklamání. Chuť se výrazně zlepšila v kombinaci s jídlem.
Rich smell, intensive taste, spicy finish, not bad molasses rum. First nose tells me this rum is under 10y old. It need some time in the glas to develop the aromas. Watch out it's quite spicy and strong. I like especially the orange in the taste.
Centenario 25th ist smooth, but too sweet for me. I think this one is better if you are not just a sweet rum lover. If you want an easy sipper go for 25th.
Smell: burned sugar **, orange **, caramel, vanilla, dry fruits, some pepper, herbs, oak,
Taste initial: burned sugar, light sweetness, herbs
Taste middle: spice, wood/cask, some bitterness, earth, molasses, pepper
Finish: middle long, warm burn, spicy, pepper, burned sugar, dry fruit
Value (34€): 2.5/5
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.
