Good balanced rum, a little tart and slightly harsh, but not bad. Not a huge amount of unique flavours coming through, general oak with some nuts and little floral hint. Medium finish.

Finally!.. A sipping rum that lacks the taste of alcohol.. The color is realy dark brown.. The scent is packed with cherries and a dark tone down to coffe and filled with sugar.. (Rum in my brain.. )The taste is thick, suggery and walks againts rasins.. The good news is that it lacks the taste and punch from pure etanol.. Truely fantastic..

Brought a couple of these bottles back from the dominican republic, as the locals regarded this as one of their best rums. The nose is intense with chocolate, prunes and a hint of cinnamon and oak. The palette is wonderfully big bodied and intense with a medium sweetness. Truly deep notes of molasse, coffee and chocolate explodes in your mouth on a background of wood and bourbon. The aftertaste is a lingering spicy and mouth warming sensation with smoothe oaky notes. Though it should be savoured, I couldn't help myself instantly pouring another round after finishing the first and had to constrain myself for a third.

Unhiq XO Malt Rum is a Solera rum from the Dominican Republic whose oldest distillates are said to be between 25-30 years old. It comes from Oliver and Oliver. The rum is stored in bourbon and sherry barrels and is bottled with 42% drinking strength. Sugar caramel is added for the color. I think the rum is also sugared. The rum comes in a 0.5l bottle which is delivered with a wooden pedestal. The key data written by hand is a highlight.

The rum is not as strong in the nose as expected. Sweet caramel and fruity notes are in the foreground. Vanilla is also included. The nose is appealing without becoming intrusive. This rum wants to be drunk. On the palate, the rum is full-bodiedly sweet. It hardly burns. Caramel and vanilla and also oak are perceptible. Heavy caramelized fruit. Slightly woody. But above all, the sweetness remains. There is more to discover, but for me the sweetness covers a lot and distracts, because it invites you to consume it fast. The finish is slightly more spicy with bitter substances. Not as long as expected and for me nothing exciting comes in the after taste.

I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed. I have drunk the Zafra 21 to get warm that evening, which suits me much more in comparison. The Unhiq XO is good. It tastes delicious but I can't ignore the whole package. 1. It is certainly sugared. I guess 20-30g/l. 2. The presentation is half ready. Wooden pedestal but plastic cover!? 3. The 0.5l for 80-100 Euros are far too expensive. Others are just as good for less money (Malecon 25 or 20 Rare Proof). Here the price/performance ratio is not correct. I'll try other rums from Oliver and Oliver but for the Unhiq XO I wouldn't spend my money even if it tastes good... but not good enough. Simply said...: overpriced.

Der Unhiq XO Malt Rum ist ein Solera Rum aus der Dominikanischen Republik dessen ältestes Destillate zwischen 25-30 Jahre alt sein soll. Es kommt aus dem Hause Oliver und Oliver. Der Rum lagert in Bourbon und Sherry Fässern und wird mit 42% Trinkstärke abgefüllt. Es wird Zuckerkulör für die Farbe hinzugefügt. Ich glaube der Rum ist auch gezuckert. Der Rum kommt in einer 0,5l Flasche welche mit Holz Podest ausgeliefert wird. Wirkt alles ein wenig gewollt und nicht gekonnt. Die von Hand notierten Eckdaten wie Flaschennummer ist ein Highlight.

Der Rum ist in der Nase nicht so kräftig wie erwartet. Süße karamellige und fruchtige Noten sind im Vordergrund. Vanille ist auch dabei. Die Nase ist ansprechend ohne aufdringlich zu werden. Der Rum will dann aber lieber getrunken werden. Am Gaumen ist der Rum vollmundig süß. Er brennt kaum. Karamel und Vanille und auch Eiche sind wahrnehmbar. Schweres karamellisiertes Obst. Leicht Holzig bleibt vor allem die Süße bestehen. Da ist durchaus mehr zu entdecken, aber für mich überdeckt die Süße viel und lenkt ab, da er dadurch süffig wirkt und eher zum schnellen Konsumieren einläd. Der Abgang ist etwas würziger mit Bitterstoffen. Nicht so lang wie erwartet kommt für mich im Nachklang nichts spannendes mehr.

Ich muss zugeben, dass ich etwas enttäuscht war. Ich habe vorher zum warm werden den Zafra 21 getrunken, welcher mir viel mehr zusagt. Der Unhiq XO ist gut. Er schmeckt lecker aber ich kann das Gesamtpaket nicht ignorieren. 1. Er ist bestimmt gezuckert. 20-30g/l schätze ich. 2. Die Aufmachung ist halbgar. Holz Podest aber Plastik Deckel. 3. Die 0,5l für 80-100 Euro sind für mich viel zu teuer. Da sind andere für weniger Geld genauso gut (Malecon 25 oder 20 Rare Proof). Hier stimmt das Preis/ Leistungsverhältnis nicht. Ich werde andere Rums von Oliver und Oliver probieren, aber für den Unhiq würde ich das Geld nicht ausgeben auch wenn er mir schmeckt. Einfach überteuert.

Just fantastic!!!

You can enjoy the smell for hours. Almonds and vanille. Sweet tobacco. Sweet - not too sweet - with some oak. A bit similar to Quorhum 30 aniversario.

The taste is even more excellent. Dried fruits, more tobacco, coffee and chocolate. Goes on and on for so long.

My favorite.

Wunderschönes dunkles Mahagoni im Glas.
Die schweren Holz und Gewürz Düfte werden mit dem frischen, fruchtigen Karamell in die Nase getragen.
Im Gaumen, sehr elegant und geschmeidig ergiessen sich Aromen von in Karamell eingetauchte Pflaumen, Holz und Gewürzen über Deine Zunge.
Im Abgang, unendlich lang, Karamell, Früchte......
Ein sehr süsser Rum, halt typisch Oliver y Oliver. Für Einsteiger und Geniesser.

Beautiful dark mahogany in the glass.
The heavy wood and spice scents are carried with the fresh, fruity caramel in the nose.
On the palate, very elegant and supple aromas of caramel plum, wood and spices pour over your tongue.
On the finish, infinitely long, caramel, fruits ......
A very sweet rum, typical Oliver y Oliver. For beginners and connoisseurs.

One Of the Best rums ever tasted.... could easy be my New favorit


Posted over 3 years ago by Allan from Australia with 6 ratings

for me this is the upper range of the top shelf
zero burn, lots of raisins and caramel on the nose

the beautiful aromatic scent carry's through to the palate
bursting with juicy raisins with hints of chocolate molasses and slight cinnamon and nutmeg
this is not a dry rum but is not too sweet and thick either
perfect well balance rum for me
left me wanting more ,this should be a 700ml not a 500ml
well priced for the quality

Beautiful mahogany color. There are very pastry notes of almonds, dried fruits and prunes or plums. On the palate, we founded caramel, candied fruit, chocolate. Alcohol is present but it does not cut into the harmony of this rum. The finish is moderately long and is very licorice in the mouth. Nice job, aged with solera method. Good one.
