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.
One of the best rums for the money. A bit too Sweet with caramel flavor but also a bit dry as it lingers. Not as good as Zacapa but close. Just not quite the same body as Zacapa but I have no problem sipping it. Definitely not one that you need to mix.
Good sipper. Recomended by other reviews. You won't be disappointed.
This was recommended by fellow Rum Raters. This is one of my new favorites, alongside Ron Zacapa, Zaya and Kirk & Sweeney. It does have a sweetness to it, which I prefer. Just a really smooth rum that I would buy again and again.
En hyggelig rom med kokkos duft og smag. Perfekt til kaffen.
The nose is covered in alcohol. Which leaves me with low expectations.. The taste is free from alcohol, covered in raisins an real mellow. Almost like a light version of the swedish Punch.. And the finish is real long and evolves in many different tones as it slowly leaves you.. Great for a warm evening sip.
It comes in a wood box.
Doesn't that say it all?
Well at least mine did.
It's called "Double Wood".
So, I asked the guy in the store, what do you have that's a lot less expensive than the Ron Zacapa XO that has complexity and some body. It was a trick question as I've had lots of rum that would meet the request, but I was looking for something new. He recommended the Kaniche XO. I was Alitalia hesitant as I had the Kaniche 11 Year Old, liked it a lot, but found it light in body. He said this one was different. He was almost spot on. It doesn't have the body of a Zacapa xo, but at 1/3 the price, the body works out fine. The taste is just scrumptious. Loaded with butterscotch and vanilla, it's just so wonderful to sip and enjoy. Will become my go to rum!
Definitely sweet, but a warm, full, rich and deep sweetness. Very tasty.
This rum came on sweet but not too sweet. It is smooth, complex, and has a finish that stays with you for a bit. Phenomenal rum, especially for the price
A wonderful, sweet rum. Your nose is greeted by molasses and roasted coconut. Give it 10 min in the glass before drinking. The palate has decent body and is fairly smooth and sweet, with caramel, coconut and a nice spicy hint in the end. Slightly unique and surely a crowd pleaser.
Utrolig sød, ikke lige min kop te. Lillebroderen Kaniche Reserve, er langt bedre.
You will love this smooth tasty rum. I used to drink Bourbon and I can taste the sweetness of a hint of oak barrel aged Bourbon in this delicious rum. It is full bodied yet sweet. The sipping rum.
Kaniche XO overrasker med en markant kokosduft. Den er sød uden at være voldsom. Den udfordrer og man kan udforske dufte længe. Virkelig en behagelig oplevelse. Kan på mange måder minde om Plantation 20y anniversary
Was recommended by a friend who is a rum expert. Great color , orange peel on the nose. Can taste the bourbon aging.
