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.

This rum is a little bit strange, it's like a cream cake. It has a lot of coconut flavour, like Plantation XO.
So far I only knew the marshmallow smell (coconut with suggar) from the Dictador XO insolent.
I wonder where these flavours come from.
It's not very complex and not very old in my opinion. I would gues 4 to 10 years. I think a good price would be around 40€, that's why it's a little bit too expensive for me. I would prefer Plantation XO.

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

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

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

Ce rhum n est pas très dispendieux. Et il descend très bien juste comme ça.
