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.
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.
Rating kommer i morgen nå jeg er blevet ædru eller lige efter
Great aroma and color. Good for shots as well as mixed.
This is in my top 5. The others are El dorado, Zaya, Pyrat, and Flor de Cana. Other reviewers compare this to Plantation XO and I personally like the Kaniche slightly better. I think the double aging in a cognac barrel really adds something special to the finishing taste. I will definitely buy more of this.
Sød og dejlig til vanilje rom elskeren. En favorit
Not sure if this is the $60 version. It says double wood aged. Very good, smooth, a little wood.
not what I thought. This rum is from the same company as the Plantation Rum XO 20th anniversary. And it is not as good as the anniversary rum. I like the anniversary rum better. It is everything a bit better. Bit smoother, bit longer on the palate and so on. But worth a buy anyway.
Good value offering from Total Wine. Sweet approach with some complexity and burn on the finish.
At first it comes up with nice sweetness wich quickly turn into a nice smooth taste of oak +++ and a kind edge.
Super lækker Rom, kan varmt anbefales, har en fantastisk god eftersmag
Har masser af kukus noter og søde frugter. Der er som man sider der nede.
This is an AMAZING Rum for Zipping, what a great Rum. Got to have this one!
My go to drink is always an aged rum neat and once in a while on the rocks. At less than $30 Kaniche XO is always my bargain brand when watching my pennies or if there are going to be heavy drinkers at my home who don't appreciate the really good stuff. A little sweet but nice and smooth with a great taste.
This rum is good!! I enjoy the smooth non astringent oaky aroma. The flavor really shines as it has subtle flavors of oak, tobacco and a slight citrus/floral essence. Highly recommend as a sipper and at $25 it's a steal.
En klar favorit. Mycket smak efter ett tag i glasset doftar man cocosbol.
Tried this because it was on sale. I am glad I did good flavor, mixes well with coke. Straight it was not to harsh.
Delicate, smooth,tropical aromas. Hints of coconut, hazelnuts and almonds in aroma. Great sipping rum.
Great Rum from Barbados. Typical flavours of pineapple,banana and vanilla. Warm aftertaste with hints of pepper and sweet tropical fruits.
Sweet with a distinct flavor of coconut. Quite similar to one of my favorites, the Plantation XO, although not as sweet. Definitely worth a buy if you can pick it up for a discount since regular price seems a bit overboard in my humble opinion.
This nose is a fun one! Pretty alcoholic at first, but it quickly clears up to reveal oak and cola, before morphing into a smokey brown sugar, similar to a barbeque sauce, with tropical fruit lurking underneath.
Aging the rum in cognac casks brings out a lot of that same characteristics you see in Plantation, but more so for all of them. Kaniche XO carries sweet, strong flavors of molasses, papaya, toffee, baking spice, and just a smidge of coffee. Finish is rather short, but the delightful flavors and phenomenal smoothness of this rum make it a star anyways! If you're a Plantation fan, I would highly, highly recommend this! (And if you're not, then I just highly recommend it!)
UPDATE: Hot dang, this stuff is so nice! Poured myself a glass tonight for the first time in months, and realized just how easy I could down this stuff! Simply marvelous!!
The rum has it's unique character in the sense of taste, is neutral and balanced with a smooth sweetest, the double wood translates in a rich vanilla taste, covered by the ussual molasses taste. Not bad for an XO, but I was expecting a bit more personality a bit more relevance. Tasting at room temperature and no ice.
This by far one of my favorites..if not my favorite, well priced for the quality and taste.
Soft spiced taste, round finish, great Choice for the evening to simply sip and enjoy
but with more sherry notes. more raisins, more chocolate. and of course more sweetness. still a half dry rum in the sweetend world of rum. i don´t like it sweet, but if, i would give a 8.
