Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I compared this liquid treasure with another famous gem from Olivier & Oliver : the Quorhum 30-year.
I must admit that it would be hard to make a choice. Both have a lot in common : gentle nose, deep color, incredible smoothness around vanilla, caramel, dried fruits.
However, I tend to think the Cubaney tastes a little bit more complex. More surprises int the mouth after a initial feel-good sensation. Moreover, the finish of the Cubaney lasts much longer, which would encourage me to have another glass from this one. All in all, these are two must-have for any rum collector on the west side, along with the Plantation XXe anniversary, which shares a lot too with the two rums I compared but on a more fruity and more "gourmand" side.
A very nice looking bottle that comes in a cheap paper box (picture). I really think that this luxury rum deserves a better package. In this pricerange you can expect more.
In the glass you first smell some alcohol but after a while you get sweet aromas from toffee, vanilla and almonds. You also sense som oak and maybe a hint of whisky. I really recommend that you let this rum rest in the glass for atleast 10 minutes.
In the mouth you get a lot of spice. You also get sweet flavours of caramel, vanilla and fruits. In the throat you get some spice and sweet flavours. This rum is very smooth with a very long spicy aftertaste.
This is one of the rums that can make any "rumhater" to change their minds. With its 25-30 year blend this rum deserves a lot of respect when you drink it. Cheers to Oliver & Oliver and thank you for a great experience.
Vynikající rum, sušší, dřevitý, jemný, vyvážený, spíše pro zkušenější milovníky rumu. Nádherná ovocná až povidlová vůně. Luxusní balení. Rum pro výjimečné příležitosti.
Ive tried this one just after getting a bottle of Millonario XO and I must admit this one is slightly better. It has not so strong nose (Millonario XO is maybe just too much on nose), but the taste.....that is really it!
There is not alcohol body, only tones of vanilla, oak,caramel....yummy!
It has one of the best tails: long, complex and slowly releasing.
Bottle is a copy of Millonario XO (or vice versa), anyway a masterpiece.
Only bad thing about this Rum is the price tag....
I'm surprised. I've not generally been a fan of rums from the D.R., but this one has my attention. It's delicate - nothing overpowers. As a result, it's a touch light compared to other rums of this age group. Only 42% ABV, so that could account for it based on what my palette is used to. Nose is caramel, coffee, vanilla. It's a touch sweet, making me wonder about added sugar. A touch of all the things in the nose, plus something a little fruity. Overall, a lovely sipper.
This rum taste great, no doubt about it .A wonderful nose, Sweet and spicy, yet complex taste. A very long and wonderful aftertaste. It is indeed a luxury rum.
The thing is though, you can find rum that are as good as this, but considerably cheaper. And thats why this rum doesn't get a 10 from me.
All I can say is wow! Finally managed to get my hands to Cubaney Centenario while in Dominican Republic and its worth every single penny of its $115 price tag at any local grocery stores. Bottle looks very nice and high end. Very flimsy cardboard box looks silly. Super deep dark color. Notes of coffee and toffee to the nose. More coffee and toffee to the palate with very mild spices and almonds. Nice and long finish. Simply amazing rum. Second best rum from Oliver & Oliver right after Esclavo XO which was not available anywhere in DR.

Centenario je pro mne velmi skvělý rum od Olivera&Olivera z Dominikány. Neřeším příběh a původní suroviny,ale pouze chuť. Je to hvězda večírků a mám ho opravdu rád. Lehká nasládlost a jemnost mi prostě imponuje.
Celebrated yesterday by opening this bottle which I heard would be the best from Oliver & Oliver.
I’ve read that it would be powerful, but I don’t think so at all, instead I think it’s the softest and smoothest rum I’ve ever tasted.
Because of that, I find it difficult to discern all the aromas and flavors. I think the predominant ones are vanilla and cream caramel, but it’s also possible to distinguish sweet tobacco, spices and hazelnuts.
These aromas and flavors are there from the start and linger until the rather long end.
It’s of course relatively sweet, it’s an Oliver & Oliver, but not too sweet.
