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.
Like others have said this rum is a tad on the sweet side, but still an excellent sipper with lots of cognac notes to it but still staying on the lighter side. The finish on this rum is one of the longer ones I have had and can still be noticed on the palate a few minutes later.
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.
beaucoup plus present que son petit frere (le reserve) avec plus de caractere, mais on peut trouver mieux dans sa gamme de prix
Invited to a wedding on an island so I needed a sipping rum that would not break the bank and stand next to single malts and I got this one a recommendation. Basically, everyone that tried the rum loved it, and the bottle ran out way before the McAllen 15, 18, and Nikka.People took pictures of the bottle to remember and was a hit. It does not have a strong bite but is flavorful with hints of fruits and a lasting finish. I don't want to sound sexist, but even the women at the party were drinking this (with 1-2 ice cubes) Also stating how flavorful it was. So if you want a great rum and a great price point that will be appreciated by most, you can't go wrong. I wish I had a picture!
for about $ 30 also a great value has some coconut and other spices which is an alternative to some of the other rums which have a hint of vanilla.
God og lang eftersmag. En anelse sød. Dufter af kokus og appelsin, men smager ikke af det. Passer rigtig godt sammen med en kop god kaffe.
Smooth with vanilla notes typical if island rums, with a sophisticated aged taste.
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.
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".
Definitely sweet, but a warm, full, rich and deep sweetness. Very tasty.
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.
