the glass, Ron Esclavo XO has a nice dark cup of cake, which immediately begins to spread a delicious scent of honey seed in the room
It is vanilla, syrup and honey that work alternately in a single candy dish. So much sweetness could easily be too much - but by keeping Ron Esclavo XO on 42% instead of 40%, you have balanced sweetman and lift cleaner flavors.

Good molasses rum, the tangerine taste is unique. It needs a long time in the glas, you can not stick you nose in it immediately.
There is first some molasses in the nose, but after 5min it disappears.
It's sweet and a little bit spicy. Burned sugar with spice is a very intensive flavour.
This aroma combination is almost too spicy for me.
It's rich and intensive, but the sweetness goes up because of the spice. I would prefer less spicy or less sweet version of it.
The mandarine and px sherry taste is very nice. I get an imagination of drinking a PX Sherry (my last PX sherry was a very good and old one).

Profile: mandarine, burned sugar, px sherry

Smell: first some molasses for 5min with steel, caramel, herbs (like in Zacapa rums), burned sugar, dry fruits, mandarine in the background, oak/barrel (earth), some sherry
Taste: mandaaaarrriiine with caramel (this is a very long lasting mandarine), burned sugar, caramel
Middle: caramel, again mandarine, again burned sugar (some bitterness or mandarine peels)
Finish: long, spicy, maaaandaaaaarine, caramel, spice, px sherry
Aftertaste: px sherry and mandarine (do they used PX casks? nice)

Sweetness: 4/5
Fruit: 23/5
Spice: 3/5
Mildness: 4/5
Intensity: 4/5
Value (50€): 4/5
Experience level: professional

...I enjoyed a sip of this rum today at my local rum store.

The smell was a bit alcoholic yet not unpleasant.

The taste is a sweet with a fruity plum aroma. Nice caramel colour, just the bottle looks a bit cheap and simple.

Solid 8.0

Quite dark colour. Nose sweet, woody, leathery. Very rich taste. Vanila, chocolate, leather, oak and hint of honey and orange peel. Balanced, not too dry not to sweet (sweetish however). One of the best I have ever tasted.

Edit. After a year I have to decrease the rating by one notch. I it still a great rum but I prefer a little bit dry with jamaican HOGO taste.

Ein weicher Runder Rhum. Leicht nach Vanille schmecken.
Mögen auch die Damen nach dem Essen.

Another great oliver. Smell is very pleasant with hints of honey and vanilla. Taste is simply awesome. You can feel vanilla, caramel and cinnamon. It is very smooth with spiced end.

What a nice rum. Bit sweet and sirupy consistancy. Round in the mouth. Taste lasts long time. Nose is great. Like it as much as diplomatico exclusiva.
