Recommendable to most
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.
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.
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.
