Quite sweet and easy to sip. I taste cinnamon and spices. Pretty good value for the price 👍

I have a very nice collection of rums and this one will always be in my cabinet. Easy on the palate with the perfect combination of flavor and aroma. Highly recommend.

If you let it breathe for an hour or so after pouring, the flavors and aromas come through nicely. Also great on ice.

I did a blind taste test with this rum against the Kaniche Perfeccion... This rum (the XO) came across as being sweeter and had some additional flavors that made me a little suspicious :-O Still delicious, however.

A great sipper that also works as a dessert drink. Sweet, but not overwhelmingly so. I personally can't stand anything too sugary or sweet, however I feel like this rum is an exception. The flavor consists of coconut notes mixed with something I can only describe as a mix of lime and maple syrup. Kaniche XO is definitely not for everyone's tastes, but it works for me. A rum worth trying out.

Truly love this rum. It has a smooth and easy finish that is perfect for a sipping rum. The finish in the cognac casks makes a huge difference.

So far I only knew the marshmallow smell (Coconut with suggar) from the Dictador XO insolent.
An exceptional rum. Not a typical taste. I wonder where these flavors come from.
I would enjoy it as a liqueur., because it's very sweet.

Smell: vanilla, cream (marshmallow or sweet coconut), berries. Like a cake with cream and berries on top.
Flavor: cream cake, very creamy, vanilla, some spice, candy (berries). Cake aftertaste in the mouth.

Sweetness: 4/5
Spice: 2.5/5
Fruit: 3/5
Mildness: 3.5/5

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
