Po tomto rumu budu muset poopravit hodnocení rumů výrobce Oliver & Oliver. Viděl bych to následovně. Ron Esclavo XO, Presidente 19, Qourhum 30, Presidente 23,
Ophyum 12, Presidente 15. Při své síle 42% je jemnější než Presidente 23, který má příliš silný koňakový dojem. Esclavo XO asi ležel déle v sudu.

Pro mě perfektní jak ve vůni, tak v chuti.
Příjemně sladký, ale ne moc.

All I can say is wow! After well over 800 aged rums later, what an amazing find and what a big surprise. Ron Esclavo XO comes from the Oliver & Oliver group, so that does not surprise me a bit since most of their rums are simply stunning. The Ron Esclavo XO has a very deep color, such a blast of coffee aromas to the nose and my my what a treat to your taste buds. Coffee, chocolate and toffee have an amazing balance. No burn at all at the end, it is super smooth. This rum goes directly to my top 10 list. It is much better than the Dictador XO Insolent which has a similar flavor profile, but it's nowhere close this good.

Awesome dominican rum! Not the smoothest one, but still very smooth. Not the sweetest one but still sweet one. Close to perfection.

Dieser Rum hat mich in allen Bereichen überzeugt. Geschmack ist nicht zu süß, nicht zu herb. Geruch ist toll. Farbe ist toll.
Der Preis ist relativ niedrig für so einen hochwertigen Rum.

Im Geschmack entfalten sich viele Aromen, die man sonst nur von wesentlich teureren Rums kennt.

Epic, tasty, juicy, flavorful and most importantly very well priced. Definitely a strong 10.

Vůně výrazná aromatická - med,vanilka,karamel,koření. Chuť též medově sladká, karamelová s výrazným vlivem skořice a mírnou dřevitostí na konci. Výborný sladký rum.

I found this to be a great rum. One of the best values there is (after the Ron Centenario 20 which is cheaper and even better imho).

Super easy drinking and smooth for 42% abv. Smells and tastes of molasses, toffee, caramel, burned sugar, honey, cinnamon, spice, and just a hint of orange.

A fabulous rum!

Flot farve og duft af vanilie. Er meget bedre end sine små brødre på 12 og 15, som egentlig også er gode. Dejlig duft af vanilie og god smag af karamel. En dejlig rom som vil en det godt. 1. December i romkalenderen 2017

Smooth, sweet, tobacco nose and flavor. Sweetness is well-balanced and not overpowering.
