All the flavor of a far more expensive rum. This is my go to sipping rum.

The added sugar adds a counter to the harsh bite. The double wood aging really comes through with a light oaky note. Overall, not a mixing rum as it will get lost in the mix. A nice sweet light sipper with a bite.

This is well worth picking up. Get this one before the price goes up because it will.

I was completely surprised by Kaniche XO and it's become a favorite sipper that won't break the bank. High Rating (8) reflects the value (under $30). I realize that some may find the sugar a detraction, however, it's very smooth and perfect on the rocks for an enjoyable sipping sundown.

Kaniche approaches your palate in such a unique way. Its at first difficult to gauge all the flavors as what you get front to back is completely different.Sweet and fruity with a hint of a smooth oakey flavor. Price point on this one is solid as well. Impicked it up at Total Wine.

Really enjoy this rum, not to the level of Diplomático but it’s very close.

Not as layered as the Perfeccion but has a nice bite.

Sweet oaky "sugary" flavor. Not sweet like sugary rums ( Zaya 16yr), but rather like a "dry" cinnamon roll frosting. Long finish ends well without bitterness. Reminds me of a smoother Plantation brand rum. Complex flavor of banana, carmel, and light brown sugar.

Definitely worth your consideration.

On the nose: Warm sugar, vanilla frosting
Flavor: Warm, rich "sugar" flavor without being really sweet. Just a tad bitter and oaky. Long finish.

I've been using and loving this rum for a nice selection of tiki drinks from the Smuggler's Cove book with great results. For cocktails, this aged blended rum gets a 9/10. For sipping, it's also enjoyable but not quite as much, hence the 7. It reminds me of a Smith and Cross overproof but without the bite and a little sweeter. I'm also tasting grass/green foliage about 20 seconds after swallowing. Not necessarily unpleasant but doesn't add anything.
