Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I first got this rum a few years ago on vacation in Costa Rica. I immediately fell in love with it, rich taste and a smooth finish. It is great on the rocks or mixed with coke/ coconut milk. If possible pour some into a freshly opened coconut for an authentic Costa Rica taste.
El ron costarricense, es agradable, poco original, se deja tomar con un sabor dulzón. Lo tomo en Cuba Libre.
For me close to a perfect Rum. Similar to Flor de Cana 12, very smooth, caramel, marzipan, decent wood, maybe a little thin but still great work. Looking forward to the older ones.
This one is okay for an everyday sip, but unfortunately has nothing special. You certainly find better for this amount of money.
It was the end of the bottle when tasted and was only able to pour 2cl. The bottle was opened for quite some time so very difficult to assess the real potential.
Vanilla and powerful black pepper notes stood out though
I’m in Costa Rica for the first time, stopped by the local supermarket and ran across the Ron Centenario 12 for like $35.
Makes a very good mixer but when neat, it’s surprisingly smooth, and surprisingly Sweet. Not a lot of complexity but very drinkable. I’ll probably look for the 20 year in duty free for my trip home
The quality of the rum is adequate to what you pay for. It will certainly not disappoint you but won't wow you either.
It is sweet and leathery on the nose. In taste, this rum has a whiskey-like characteristic and is pleasantly sweet without tasting too artificial. There are notes of cinnamon, as well as some fruits which I cannot clearly identify - perhaps apples? It has a strong woody and leathery taste and surprises with notes of peppermint.
Finish is medium lasting, not too strong.
