Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Epic, tasty, juicy, flavorful and most importantly very well priced. Definitely a strong 10.
Mark 8+/10. This is balance rum in the sweeter side... taste remainds me Presidente 23 but withlittle bit boost of alcohol-fire taste, coffe and honey-caramel taste. Very good powerful and sweet, my favorite rum until now!!!
Just compared this to the 12 years old. In the nose I had the idea it was a bit closed but after the first nip I got in the mood, very nice, vanille, caramel, mouthfilling, sweet finish.
Lieblich und süss. Auch für Anfänger und Frauen geeignet. Ähnlich dem qrm 30 jahre
kenne diesen rum aus dem adventskalender 1423. und war mein absoluter favorit! preis leistung stimmt für mich 80.- sfr. pro flasche.
Zatial co 12 a 15 rocna verzia Esclavo ma prilis nezaujali, XO je uz chutou niekde uplne inde. Z tychto troch variant je najsladsi a chutovo najkomplexnejsi. Vonia po karamele, vanilke, trosku citit drevo. Stale si ale myslim, ze v cene okolo 60€ su lepsie a chutnejsie volby - Centenario 20y alebo napr. Santos Dumont XO.
Pro mě perfektní jak ve vůni, tak v chuti.
Příjemně sladký, ale ne moc.
Fantastic rum to start with so you don't get disappointed.
Just had a quick taste and it was a very nice surprise. Taste of vanilla and toffee. Rather sweet, but still a rum to me, rather than a rum-based liquor. Need to buy a full bottle and see how I like it on the long run.
Ciekawy, przypadl mi bardzo do gustu. Intensywny, mocny, przy czym alkohol w ogóle nie wyczuwalny. Jeden z moich ulubionych
Schön rund und ausgeglichen.
Optimale Süsse. Wunderbar in Nase und Gaumen
Great smell! And tastes good! Adding to my collection!
Uit een adventkalender. Klein beetje van 20ml. Niet echt genoeg voor een goed oordeel. Banaan, vanille, erg zoet en plakkerig. 48gr suiker per liter. Niet erg complex.
Vanilla, honey, syrup, a lot of sweet corn and caramel that are well balanced by the strength
Solera on the sweeter side is normal, but this one manages to be more smooth than other, which adds some drinkability to this bottle.
Nose: Vanilla, burnt suger and some minor hints of prunes and wood
Taste: Caramel, raisins, some roasted oak and a slight aftertaste of coffee.
Overall: A good sweet solera rum that would have been near perfection if it wasn´t watered down to 42abv
Purchased a sample from www.masterofmalt.com for under £10, decided to try after reading a review on here. The bottle was sold out but luckily there were still samplers available.
It's got a rich dark brown hue, and is from the Dominican Republic it's well aged and rounded and a wonderful sipping rum I definitely would not spoil the flavours and aromas by mixing this beauty.
It's sweet and reminiscent of sherry on the nose and in the mouth, it's remarkably smooth even though it comes in at 42% abv. It's simply a wonderful rum I'm glad I read the review I did and will certainly purchase a full bottle in the future.
Smooth, sweet, tobacco nose and flavor. Sweetness is well-balanced and not overpowering.
There are some good flavours in it, but too sweet for me.
Its sweet, round and velvety. It has a complexity and a taste that last long. I owned this rhum for 14 days and it is really boosting my intererest for rhum again. It very much like zacapa XO but has less taste of alkohol. Unbelievable it is 42*. Cant recomend it enough.
This is one of those super sweet smooth and caramely rums that go down too easy. It's not very complex but damn it's tasty. Lot's of vanilla, some oak, a bit of fruit.
Goûté via un calendrier de l'avent 2017, ce rhum s'est avéré s'est avéré être le meilleure parmis les 23 autres. Bon rapport qualité prix. <50€
I found this a good rum -
a sweet nose with vanilla, oak, mollases and above all brown sugar
Those tastes are all there in the mouth but it does taste quite sweet. I suspect it has a lot of added sugar and caramel - I haven't checked as I write this...
But, you now what, other rums have added sugar and just did more for me on the first and second taste - El Dorado 12, Diplomatico Exclusiva Reserva (which has a much richer and longer lasting flavour and kick)
I don't want to damn this with faint praise, because I'd say that it was worth an 8 (maybe a 7.5 if I could). Further tastings may reveal more, who knows, but I did find it just a tad samey - good, but samey.
I didn't find the aftertaste to be particularly long.
Nu ma asteptam ca XO-ul de la Esclavo sa ma surpinda atat de tare. Incercasem mai demult cel de 12 si 15 dar acesta este deosebit. Echilbrat, aromat, cu un finish foarte placut si un aftertaste mediu. Un rom fin si placut On The Rocks!
