Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
When poured, this rum reveals a brilliant amber hue, with glints of mahogany and gold that make it exceedingly inviting. The legs on the glass are slow and syrupy, signaling a well-aged spirit.
The olfactory journey of Centenario Rum 12 Year begins with a sophisticated aroma of caramel and molasses, followed by a bouquet of tropical fruits—specifically notes of banana and pineapple. Subtle nuances of oak and vanilla derived from its long years in barrel waft through, elevating the overall aromatic experience.
The first sip delivers a complex layering of flavors. The initial smoothness of caramel and vanilla make way for a cascade of fruitiness, featuring elements of dried figs, dates, and a touch of citrus zest. The woodiness of the oak is present but well-integrated, serving as a harmonizing force for the other flavors. A surprising hint of toasted nuts and spices like cinnamon and clove add a layer of complexity that is captivating.
The finish is notably long, warm, and exceedingly smooth. It leaves behind a delightful aftertaste of brown sugar and a residual spiciness, with the matured oak subtly echoing as a final testament to its age.
