Lite lik Zacapa, men ändå skillnad, tydlig lukt av vanilj, bra styrka i munnen och avmättad sötma som gör att man kan dricka mer.

I had the luxury of tasting Ron Esclavo XO, 15 and 12 year old rums back-to-back and what a nice treat it was on a sunny Saturday evening. Ron Esclavo rums come from the Oliver & Oliver group, so it does not surprise me a bit that they are all amazing since most of their rums are simply stunning. The Ron Esclavo XO has a very deep color, whereas the 15-year old Ron Esclavo is much lighter in color and the 12 year old is once more darker, a bit closer to the XO color. Coffee, chocolate and toffee have an amazing balance and when you move downwards from XO, which is super smooth, to 15 which is very nice to 12 which has a gradually larger amount of burn at the end. Flavor profile stays the same, but the intensity of the burn increases very gradually. The Ron Esclavo XO is much better than the Dictador XO Insolent which has a similar flavor profile, but it's nowhere close this good, whereas the Ron Esclavo 15 and 12 are much closer to the Dictador XO Insolent flavor profile.

Skvělý jemný rum, pokud máte rádi jemné sladší (nikoliv však sladké) rumy, už 12y za to stojí. Ostatní vyšší kategorie (resp. starší - 15y, XO, Cask) jsou ještě lepší, což nebývá vždy pravidlem.

Just a bit sweet, very interesting and long lasting taste. One of the best 12yo rums I have tasted.

In the nose i felt sweet pastry and caramel.
Palate is medium sweet wtih hints of nuts, vanilla, caramel with touch of chocolate
Pleasant finish.
Very well balanced rum, round and smooth.

I like it, lovely sweet taste, not as good as the XO but closes. Need to try the 15 YO just to compare them all.

Nice balance between spicy taste and sweetness. Liked it better than the 15 yo

En let sød rom der er alle pengene værd. En god begynder rom som jeg bliver ved med at komme tilbage til.
