Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This rum is only 1/2 the price of the Cartavio XO, and is quite good. It's a bit dryer and seems more oaked than the XO.
Oak, toffee, banana, spice, and a touch of bourbon. Good. But the Cartavio XO is in another league, so try that too if you can!
What a massive difference between the relatively smooth Ron Cartavio XO and the nasty 12 year old. I bought a bottle of this vile stuff at the Lima airport and had a hard time consuming the bottle with my colleague having a bottle of Coke to go with it. The 12 year old is not a neat sipper at all and even with Coke there is a nasty burn which you can taste through the Coke.
Very good packaging. A very smooth rum with a hint of alcohol that is masked a bit too much by the sweetness on the mid pallet, but with a dryness taking over on the finish. Good length. Easy to drink but lacks complexity. Too expensive as plenty of other rums out there that are more interesting and cheaper.
Sweet, smooth, caramel flavors, soft burn, good finish!
Nice manly rum. Lots if leather, some hints of DRY fruits, slight sweetness but u gotta look for it. I try all rum with coke even though i drink 80% of my rum neat. This mames an extremely excellent rum n coke. Give it a run.😁
Really smooth. From Peru. Oak, caramel, not too sweet.
esta cat fue divertida lo pude disfrutar en machu pichu fuerte al paladar con sus notas añejas chocolatadas y un toque caneloso
Es un ron que no sabe añejo y está muy perfumado a frutas, no lo volvería comprar!
Nose: toffee and cacao with a hint of butter.
Pallet: gentle sweetness with a long pleasent burn.
I must admit that I did have higher demand on Cartavio 12 year based on that a lot of other good Rum producers seems to do a really good Rum around 12 year storage even in Solera method. This 12 year Cartavio seems to have to much young Rum to give it the best round taste and aftertaste. In my opinion it could be even 6, sorry Cartavio 12 year, you need to improve.
The taste is dominated of the alcohol, lacks smoothness and charastics of a zipper rum
Can't help it. When ever I see a nice bottle of rom, i buy if I got the money :D
Full flavoured, woody/smokey but slightly sweet too, only a very slight afterburn, and an almost spicy aftertaste. Enjoyable but not as moreish as some other similar priced rums
If you like a sweeter rum then you will enjoy this. It's not very complex, you will be met by the taste of pecan. It's not a long finish but you will want to have another sip to search other flavours.
Es un ron peruano con carácter, cuerpo. Olor a vainilla y nuez. Su sabor es dulce y se aprecia tomándose derecho.
en alcool, malgré son âge!!!
ca reste un très bon rapport qualité prix, mais il ne reste pas dans les annales.
une fois fini, je ne le rachèterais pas
Dark amber, relative density. Slow tear in the glass.
Honey, Sweet, Little alcoholic presence, molasses, cocoa, cane juice.
Bitter cocoa, some honey memories, dense, smooth.
When you open it with a little water become in a softer spirit, less silky but sweeter, bitter cocoa still feels but in smaller amounts.
It is may be not the most complex or full flavor rum, however it is so much easy for sipping and drink straight up. Great stuff from the Inka territory.
