Tasty, but not quite great
Not a bad rum. Amber in color and has a very nice aroma. The flavor is sweet...apparently not as sweet as their XO...and has a vanilla/caramel/toffee mix with a dash of cinnamon to the flavor along with a slight oakiness to it. No real burn but a nice warmth that coats the throat. A nice rum altogether that would qualify as a sipping rum if you like sweet rums and qualifies as a mixing rum as well. Quite versatile. I recommend using this with mixed drinks calling for bitters or even hot sauce (like a rum-based version of a Bloody Mary).
You get a big taste of cinnamon and pepper which would attribute to somewhat of a burn plus the alcohol will only elevate the heat. It has a moderate sweetness with vanilla, oak, tobacco and Werther's candies(caramel)!
This could be a decent sipper, though I'd go for the XO instead for about 8 dollars more at Total Wine And more.
Very strong flavor of cinnamon. Actually produces a burning sensation in my mouth. (Capsicum source also added?) Label says "artisan". Seems the opposite of artisan to me- processed food. Might be good in mixed drinks, but I don't drink mixed drinks. So problem is label. If you drink rum for the pleasure of the flavor of rum, avoid this.
Plain bottle, could mistake for a wine
Mid shade liquid
Mid odor, caramel
Spicy beginning taste
Spicy caramel mid taste
Short after taste, caramel
Pretty sweet nose with vanilla dominating. Very Plantation-like, but feels not that sweet. Sippable on its own, but not a good choice in mixers unless you want something that both smells and tastes sweet. Real rating would be 6,7.
For the price ($16.99), it was okay. No particular flavors of note. Stronger straight than the other Kaniches I have tried. Mixed was decent.
After tasting the Barbados XO and the Panama perfecction I though that Kaniche can't fail with anything. But this one I will only use for mixing. Taste of alcohol and black pepper.
Brown sugar, oaky nose. Spicy immediate hit that lasts forever. Incredibly long. Not much gets last the spice, nice balance on the sweet side, but just don’t get many flavours coming out. Try because it’s unique, but you’ll only want a taste likely.
Kaniche Reserve is good value at $20 a bottle. Decent bottle and label design. Light golden color. Strong vanilla extract, plenty of raisins and oak to the nose and palate when neat sipped. Much better mixed in with your favorite soda.
