Now this is some good stuff
Almost a spicy, grainy bourbon like nose. Rich caramel, vanilla, and oak. Comes on and finishes strong. Great on the rocks or with a couple dashes of bitters. Unapologetic and enjoyable.
This XO is still a Mount Gay XO, but a different one. It's more woody, less spicy and more mild.
I know some rums with similar profiles like Barcelo Onyx or Flor de Cana 18.
The new price of 45€ is appropriate but it's not a bargain like the old XO.
Smell: oak 4/5 and salt (from molasses), vanilla, caramel, grapes, banana 0.5/5, orange 0.5/5
Taste initial: caramel, salt, dry fruits
Middle: wood (very intensive), earth/cask, vanilla, orange peel
Finish: firmint, some spice, bitterness
Aftertaste: firmint (pot stil aroma)
