We all have that one rum, which got us hooked on the juice. For me it is this one. Someone once described the feeling of drinking this perfectly to me. It is like being cradled by your mother and punched by your big brother at the same time. Smooth, sweet and powerful at the same time.
Nose: Burnt sugar, vanilla and molasses
Taste: (Almost too) sweet with hints of caramel, vanilla and coffee and then a swift kick to the tastebuds by the 65abv. Long and warm aftertaste.
Overall: I love this rum. It is maybe a bit too sweet for my normal liking, but the alcohol level makes up for that and creates a fantastic experience.
Packed with flavour and a wonderfull nose, much like the XO but stronger smell and much stronger alcohol taste!
This 65% rum is the very deffinition of godliness in a bottle. The alcohol % gives you a warm sensation in your mouth and with just a few drops of water tons of different flavors comes to life. This is truly a fantastic rum.
Wow, a lot of others have already said it all about this rum I think.
Even with a high ABV, its smooth and have a fantastic flawour that stays for a long time in your mouth
I have tride it with some water, but for my taste I think its better as it is.
I can feel tha higher ABV, but that wanich really quickly and then its all taste of rich flawourfull rum with balanced sweetnes
Ron Esclavo XO Cask er XO dobbelt op både på farve, duft og smag - hold da op - (næsten for kraftig) ikke til for store doser ad gangen.
All too strong. Ruins the taste. Some sweetness
10% lighter and it would have ben great.
Tykflydende kærlighed som fylder glasset der elegant dufter af diskret karamel! Smager godt, lenge og hele tiden. Procenten er høj, men man merker det ikke. Bedste i samlingen
Her er virkelig en fantastisk rom. Klart den bedste i Esclavo serien.
The high alcohol percentage doesn't feel like too much. Like rest of the Esclavos we're talking sweet rums. A little overpriced at only 50cl a bottle, but you get a quality product and a long lasting taste.
Considering the price, really, really good stuff. The nose is potent with notes of cinnamon, orange chocolate and coffee. The palette is powerfull with the same notes found in the nose alongside sweet, burnt molasse, and a hint of leathery wood. The afterburn is sweet, creamy and spicy. You get alot of the tres hombres: captains choice "expirence" for a fourth of the price. Great buy.
