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.
This was alright for the price. Found it on sale for about $35. Definitely has a taste of banana and some sweetness. I would definitely drink again but maybe not purchase again. Has a slight burn at first taste as well
I am new to drinking rum, and this is my first rum review. I have tasted only Doorly's XO before trying this Kaniche XO so my reference is very limited. With that being said, my first impression of Kaniche XO is that it is a shade lighter in color than the Doorly's XO. The bottle is obviously taller, and first pours seem to be a bit messy. I ended up spilling a bit as I poured my first couple of glasses. The aroma is sweeter with hints of butterscotch, coconut and bannana. The initial taste is slightly sweet followed a second later with a smooth nose. The mouth is flavorful, but noticably thin compared to the Doorly's XO. The finish is long, but also a bit harsh. I have to say I prefer the taste of the Doorly's XO overall. The price for this bottle of rum was $24.99 at Total Wines compared to $19.99 for the Doorly's XO. Doorly's XO is in my humble opinion a better purchase for the taste, and also the money. Thanks for reading!
Incredible carmel and vanilla with some nice spice. I bought a bottle of the Plantation and it didn't compare. This does not have that rubber tire taste at all. One of the best sipping spirits I've had, especially on one large cube of ice.
Tonight’s Rum, Kaniché XO, a Barbados Rum aged in French Bourbon casks, finished in Pierre Ferrand ex cognac casks at their location in France. This review is with the assistance of my friend Lee. The nose of this Rum earthy, maybe even sour with apricot, dry brandy, a bit of vanilla and nut, not sure what kind of nut. On the tongue we detect oaky caramel orange, apricot and the sweetness of a fine Rum. Lee even mentioned cherry. I don’t detect it; I guess we all have a unique tasting experience and opinion. After a swallow coconut comes through with a hint of orange reminiscent of Grand Marnier. In the throat the Rum is quiet and reserved, no burn. The finish is very nice with orange, apricot coming through along with chocolate, coconut and just slightest taste of banana. This a damn fine Rum, a rare 9 out of 10 from me and Lee. So definitely get some… If you can find it (I got mine in Washington at Total Wine & More). #164 of 500. Thanks to Lee for his input.
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.
