It glistens like fine gemstones at sunset and drinks as smooth as satin.  
 
Centenario International started as a Costa Rican Rum distiller more than 40 years ago. This Central American powerhouse has been making quality since day one and that has fueled huge growth. Today — as a division of the mega-corp Pernod Ricard — they produce a ton of jungle juice aka Rum under the Centenario brand along with Absolute Nikolai Vodkas, Chivas Regal Whisky, Martel Cognac, Gran Patron Tequila Burnett’s Gin, Hypnotiq Liqueur, and a bunch of other things. Basically, they are one of the most prolific divisions and stock a good portion of the worlds liquor shelves worldwide. But it all started with premium Rum
 
We’ve said it before and we will say it again… when premium Rum is aged in the tropics for a LONG time, it turns red. Well, not “red” as in “garish Vegas neon red.” More like, “garnet gemstones have been somehow magically dissolved into the spirit at sunset” kind of red. Centenario Fundacion 20YO Seleción Premium is just that kind of red. Perfecto
 
And something else about really old Rum… it gets oh-so-smooth. The transformation of Rum is far more dramatic than most other spirits. Fresh “white” Rum is unaged and can drink like diluted Riccola throat lozenges. But by the time the best Rums get to 20 long years resting in oak at the high humidities of the tropics, what comes out of the cask is altogether different. Seriously… give this one a try.

Corner
Rum (usually) comes from molasses; the sweet and syrupy residue left behind after sugar crystals are extracted from sugar cane juice. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, which can contribute to the final flavour.
