Neither with this one. Very round, very smooth - no edges. Vanilla, chocolate: A rum for beginners as well as aficionados.
That's about all there is to be said unfortunately. If you know, you know. If you want details, look at my review of Kaniche XO (both made by Maison Ferrand) and imagine a slightly sweeter and less potent version of that, with a little more alcohol burn. This is not bad rum by any stretch of the imagination, but for an older offering from one of my favorite brands, finished in the casks of one of my favorite wines, I feel like this could have been something much more special.
God mørk rom til prisen. Vanilje, chokolade, kokos, blød lang eftersmag. Tilfør en enkelt isterning ved servering.
Medium sweet, in general a good bottle, but the alcohol is burning, would prefer a more round mouthfeel.
My colleague found a rare bottle of Plantation Guatemala XO and when trying it out, it was like cognac. Super dry, very good flavors though but the burn was bad. He seemed to like it a lot, whereas I was very honest about my disappointment with the Guatemala XO. Barbados XO 20th Anniversary is easily on my Top 10 rum list, whereas this one falls hopelessly short for a very good aged rum definition.
