Recommendable to most
Yes, it has added sugar, but so does Plantation 20th Anniversary, which is much more complex and tasty. Kaniche XO seems thin by comparison, without the depth of flavor of other Pierre Ferrand/Plantation rums.
This is one of the first bottles I tried when looking to step my (rum) game up a bit. Although I dislike the fact that its aged in bourbon cask (hard pressed to find one that isnt), I still appreciate the taste. Its smooth, with a nice velvety nose.
Since I've moved up in the world a bit, its no longer one of my top choices, but its still one of the close favorites.
Heck...I drinking it right now.
I got this as a gift during my Christmas party. I'd never had the XO and it's really good. On the rocks, it smooth, a bit oaky with hints of caramel and vanilla. It doesn't bite and is very smooth at the end.
This truly one of my favorites and at a good price for around $30. Find a good lime with this one. And for a six year old, you can’t beat it.
The title really gives the best explanation for anyone that has tasted those 2 rums. It's got some vegetal / tropical fruit quality that you normally get with the Jamaican and some honey and butterscotch character that I associate with the Barbados rum.
Very soft on the palate to boot!
I was expecting a harsher version of plantation xo. While it may have been that, it appeared darker with more influence from the oak. Still on the sweet side but balanced enough with just a little funk. Good for the price!
Elysium - where brooks and Ponds contains A.H.Riise......on the way, I am fond of tasting Kaniche XO. Sweet, smooth, with a little burning at the beginning, then sweet and mild, taste of milk chocolate and vanilla.
What a joke Kaniche XO really is. Purchased a bottle from the local Total Wines & Liquor based on their new inventory item and a recommendation, but the smell is off putting, taste is swanky and the burn is pretty nasty. Save your money and buy much better rum, there are boat loads of them available when you search for 5 minutes.
Gave this a shot based on some favorable reviews here. Nice presentation. First whiff some coconut , banana with a hint of orange. Taste: Sugarcane, vanilla, and a hint of coconut, a touch of oak and cognac -an excellent rum.
