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.
This is by far the worst rum I have ever tasted, and left my mouth very dry. Maybe I got a bad bottle judging from the other ratings on this page, but this tasted more like whiskey than rum to me. The advertisement in the store indicated that it had coconut flavor, which is what I was looking for, but I noticed that there was no mention of it on the bottle, so I was reluctant to buy it. However, one of the employees at Total Wines swore up and down that it was the best rum ever. I should have listened to my own instincts. Unfortunately this stuff will be going down the drain.
En lækker let drikkelig rom som de fleste kan nyde.
Denne rom må du ikke snyde dig selv for, den er fantastisk blød og rund med en fin smag af karamel.
Den egner sig også til første gangs rom drikkere.
At only $29.99 (Total Wines 2015), this beats some of the $100+ rums I've tried.
Sugarcane, vanilla, and a hint of coconut, this also includes a little oak and cognac - just enough to add to the flavor without taking from the rum goodness. Kind of similar to the Plantation XO 20th Anniversary, but not quite as good. Still an excellent rum.
This is exceptional for sipping with no burn. Very well distilled in Cognac casks for 18 months.
Så fik jeg fat på denne skønhed af en rom! Var på tilbud til 300 kr, så kunne jeg altså ikke sige nej.
This rum will knock your socks off! It is so smooth, but has substantial body and finish. If you have someone who has judged rum as being harsh, this one will be a great entry point to the world of fine rums.
Not so sweet, but smooth and pleasant. Really recommendable.
I literally bought this rum on the recommendation of a couple of friends and from an employee from my local liquor store. I was totally disappointed and felt let down after the build up of others. For me, it was "OK" at best. It went into the "rum cake rum cabinet" lol
I tried this straight up, on the rocks, and with coke.
her kommer man langt med få midler.
rigtig dejlig rom til en fornuftig pris.
Definitely something positively different. Nice flavour that stays with you afterwards.
Great color, definite hints of vanilla and oak, with a tinge of smokiness
I like some Plantation rums aged at Ferrand after the local aging process. This rum is in my opinion close to some of them. This is one of the best of the ones I have tested together with Plantation St:Lucia. I bought it in Germany for 44 euros, super price for this rum. Worth mention is the nice wood box!
Must have for rum collectors.......
Like others have said this rum is a tad on the sweet side, but still an excellent sipper with lots of cognac notes to it but still staying on the lighter side. The finish on this rum is one of the longer ones I have had and can still be noticed on the palate a few minutes later.
Note overly impressed with the nose, but amazingly intense burst of concentrated brown sugar a second after sipping. Not too sweet or spicy, nice to sip.
I bought this at total wine, on sale for twenty four bucks. A fantastic price for an XO rum. They had it at the tasting counter and I instantly liked it, so I bought a bottle. It's good stuff, smooth, mildly sweet and exactly what I want in a sipping rum, lots of pleasant flavor, no unpleasant aftertaste. I don't like rums that taste like harsh lighter fluid, and this one goes down easy, not harsh in any way. In fact, I like to hold this in my mouth for some time and it's so smooth and tasty while doing so, mmmm, mmmm.
Edit: This has become my "go to" rum. My friends all love it, and they feel it's the best they've tried also. This rum is my gold standard, and I directly compare it to others. So far, nothing is better and I try every good rum I can.
Now if you enjoys a smooth, slightly sweet rum that has some complexity in the finish and don't want to ration out some high priced exotic, this rum is for you! Straight up is best or on the rocks but don't let the ice melt and water down the wonderful taste.
beaucoup plus present que son petit frere (le reserve) avec plus de caractere, mais on peut trouver mieux dans sa gamme de prix
Invited to a wedding on an island so I needed a sipping rum that would not break the bank and stand next to single malts and I got this one a recommendation. Basically, everyone that tried the rum loved it, and the bottle ran out way before the McAllen 15, 18, and Nikka.People took pictures of the bottle to remember and was a hit. It does not have a strong bite but is flavorful with hints of fruits and a lasting finish. I don't want to sound sexist, but even the women at the party were drinking this (with 1-2 ice cubes) Also stating how flavorful it was. So if you want a great rum and a great price point that will be appreciated by most, you can't go wrong. I wish I had a picture!
for about $ 30 also a great value has some coconut and other spices which is an alternative to some of the other rums which have a hint of vanilla.
This rum is a true pleasure to sid down and drink, especially on a nice summerday. I'm a fan!! A lot of tropical fruits, medium sweetness and a light power.
Nose : I find banana, coconut, orange and in general tropical fruits. The rum is really delicious when you stick your nose down into the glass, for just enjoying the lovely notes.
Taste : I find banana, orange, tropical fruits and molasses. The aftertaste is tropical in the beginning, and it get mixed with molasses in the end.
Sugar: 24 gpl. This rum is very soft on the palate is moderately sweet with tastes of coconut, cognac, vanilla, and honey. It's is similar to Plantation XO but is a little softer and less bold or sharp of a taste. Basically it is Plantation XO Lite. As other rum posters mentioned, this was suggested to me by the Total Wines associate and he was right. This is a great tasting rum for sipping at a moderate price. If you see it in your local store, try it.
God og lang eftersmag. En anelse sød. Dufter af kokus og appelsin, men smager ikke af det. Passer rigtig godt sammen med en kop god kaffe.
