I had higher hopes for this one given prior tastings of Mezan rums. I better understand the Jamaican flavor. This was a bit strong, but it mixed fine with Coke. I have it as a 5.5
Very pale colour and not much going on in regards aroma - at first. Leave this in the glass for at least 20 mins because it just comes alive, gorgeous natural aromas, nothing woody or smokey which I prefer (selfish) and a nice amount of vanilla sweetness finished of by buttery banana. The palate is left with a slight tingle of spice and a lovely warm coating which lasts just long enough. A great rum and a bottle will be added to my collection very soon
..természetesen a jó értelemben, egy merőben "új" , öszetett illat csapja orrba az embert az üveg nyitása után :) sajnos nem dugóval van zárva ... illatra kb olyan mintha kinn a természetben szagolgatnánk egy tálba összepakolt banánt , fűszeres fakérget, pici karamellt és ráöntenénk pici mézet . Egy érdekes ám nem túl intenzív illatvilág. Pohárba öntve halványsárga , világos aranyos színű, nem túl testes italt kapunk..pár perc pihentetés után a pohárból nyoma vész a " zavaró " alkohol illatának . Lecsengése közepesen hosszú, száraz ,keserédes....unikum :))
I expected it to be exactly the way it is - dry, cut grass, bananas, coconut, oily, just a hint of sweetness.
Pungent and peaty - almost reminded me of Irish Connemara whiskey.
intriguing item this rum - for whiskey lovers.
Nice Jamaican rum, notes of vanilla and ripe bananas. Quite some esthers but not over-bearing. No added sugar or anything, but still surprisingly smooth. Looking forward to try more rums from Mezan! :)
This is true stuff. No added sugar or coloring. Very smooth for a Jamaican with funky tropical fruits in the nose and slight sweetness of ripe bananas on the palate. Almost perfect introduction to Jamaica, but I guess this would be even more interesting at a slightly higher proof. But regarding it's price the Mezan XO is incredibly good.
Nose is delicate with hints of spice and banana.The palate is quite light and incredibly smooth. Very easy to drink but I would prefer a bit more weight. But even with the light/medium body, there is a pleasing complexity even if the finish is a bit too short. A good rum that could have been verging on great if it had a bit more weight and length.
