Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Kaniche XO rum is produced in Barbados where it is first aged in bourbon casks. It is one of the few rums that is then double aged for a more mellow finished in Pierre Ferrand ex cognac casks at their location in France.
Smell: vanilla, cream (marshmallow or sweet coconut), berries. Like a cake with cream and berries on top.
So far I only know the marshmallow smell from the Dictador XO insolent.
Flavor: cream cake, very creamy, vanilla, some spice, candy (berries). Cake after taste in the mouth.
An exceptional rum. No typical taste. I wonder where these flavors come from.
I would enjoy it as a liqueur.
Kaniche XO je mou nejjasnější volbou. Je to rum, který si vždy rad koupím znovu. Jemná oříšková chuť je opravdu výjimečná a zatím jsem podobnou chuť nepotkal.
Finally found one I just can't drink. Too sweet for my taste. Mixed it with a Mexican Coke and it was ok. Learning I prefer something more dry. Will save this one for guests.
Not too sweat, just enough alcohol a really rum to sip with ice. But a bit price that is why a 7 otherwise i would have given it an 8
I think it’s only available at Total wine. Which is a shame because it’s a fantastic complex rum at a reasonable price, I always grab a couple of bottles when I can. I appreciate the time it spends in cognac cask.
Now one of my favorites, so much of a wonder found in a glass.
For the money, this rum hits all the high points. It's great by itself, works wonders in simple agreed cocktails, and isn't expensive. It lacks an upper level complexity, but for $30 you don't really expect that anyways. Go grab a bottle!
Kaniche XO rum is produced in Barbados and aged first in ex-bourbon casks (customary for rum) and then given a finish in cognac barrels (unusual in the industry but more customary for Kaniche)... hence, "double wood" rum. The suggest looking for "exotic notes" of vanilla, coconut, and cocoa.
Saw some reviews just now after I had already bought and tried it, but I must say that I really do appreciate this rum. Its sweet, but not too sweet. Similar to the Perfeccion. I would rate them both the same in my opinion. Nice wooden box too.
I taste cinnamon. My wife tastes coconut. Those rise to the top of a nicely complex and smooth rum. Spices are not too strong and overall not too sweet. Price was on point and while this isn’t my celebratory aged rum, it’s a good value for an everyday sipper.
Cheap enough to drink every day, good enough to want to. Smoothest (most mellow?) rum I've had.
Sehr guter und süsse rum. Auch für Frauen und Anfänger geeignet. Immer wieder gern
Nice flavours of vanilla and coconut. For the price it is simply great...
Définitivement un de mes rhums préféré. Son goût, son odeur sont vraiment aux top. A déguster absolument.
Ce rhum n est pas très dispendieux. Et il descend très bien juste comme ça.
Sweet and fruity as I like it. Not cheep, but worth the kr 500,-
The only thing this rum is good for is mixing with orange juice or pina coladas. The flavor is overwhelming with sweet coconut. Yech.
Friend offered me a drink and I have been hooked since that day. It is a very smooth rum. Great tasting and makes an excellent gift.
I’m not one to engage in unnecessary exaggeration, but I find that Kaniché XO is the perfect rum. It’s not overly sweet. It’s not overly smoky. It’s the perfect balance. It’s engaging and interesting. It’s smooth. It is best neat or over a small piece of ice. It’s defini a sipping rum, not for shooting. At $30 or so per bottle, it’s a great buy.
Vanilla in the nose; coconut, cacao and oak on the tongue. Almost perfect if you do not like your rum too sweet. Unfortunately, there is not much left, once you swallowed.
trvalo mi déle, než jsem jí přišel na chuť. je jemná, ale přesto má lehký dojezd hořkosti. Z počátku jsem si nebyl jistý jestli je dobrý nebo ne. Porovnání se zacapou nebo Plantationem jsou přehnané z mého hlediska.
Vůně je slabší méně výrazná. Barva světlejší ale ideální. Chuť ovocnější a lehce sladká.
Slabší 8 (7.7)
Decent rum, semi sweet multi layered taste. Plantion XO family but probably a bit more harsh. A good companion for night sipping.
Velmi jemná sladká vůně, žádná směs ovocných aroma. V ústech jemná sladká chuť. Neškrábe v krku.
Originally received it as a gift, pleasant surprise. On par with rums costing 2-3x as much. Smooth with an easy finish - my go to is a splash of water/ lime on the rocks. Mixes well, makes a mean dark & stormy.
