Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
It is flavorful, full bodied, with just the right amount of sweetness. It is similar to brugal 1888. Maybe a slight bit more sweet and less fruity but close. I paid $30 and considered that a steal for the quality. I can't wait the try the xo version.
I ran across this one this morning and remembered that this distiller got quite a number of reviews here. I also thought that it was from Columbia as I now seem to be gravitating to rum from there. A 12 Year Old Solera Rum for $33 sounded like a good deal......until I opened it up when I got home and found out that it was not a true Caribbean rum, being from Peru. Sorry, but the flavors just cannot match any rum from the Caribbean.
The first taste was after letting it breathe for only about 10 minutes, so it initially got an unfair rating of 5. One needs to let this one breathe in the snifter for at least an hour. Then the harsh alcohol taste finally fades to let the rich flavors come out with only 8 gpl of added sugar. The flavors are still no match for the finest of Caribbean rums since this one is in a class all by itself. It just takes getting used to. Be patient with this lady and you may come to love her.
Un ron que le hace el pare a cualquiera.
Sorprende su calidad y finura en todos los sentidos!
Muy Bien Cartavio!
Un ron con gran carácter. Tiene la base del XO. Al probarlo es del dulce ideal y no quema tanto al pasarlo. Se deja tomar solo y con hielo mejor aún.
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.
esta cat fue divertida lo pude disfrutar en machu pichu fuerte al paladar con sus notas añejas chocolatadas y un toque caneloso
This is a great full bodied rum. It's great to mix or just sip on the rocks. Excellent price for what you're getting. It's a staple in my home.
Really smooth. From Peru. Oak, caramel, not too sweet.
Es un ron peruano con carácter, cuerpo. Olor a vainilla y nuez. Su sabor es dulce y se aprecia tomándose derecho.
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
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!
Can't help it. When ever I see a nice bottle of rom, i buy if I got the money :D
Este ron es nuestro engreído, bueno, rico y barato. Probablemente el que más tomo.
Es un buen ron para mezclar con Cocacola, debido a que es un ron fuerte, de muy buen sabor y un ligero toque de dulzura.
Good price and nice aroma and taste without too spicy.
This is standard rum for me.
Ron Cartavio 12 year is always in my cabinet.
Una muestra de los.excelentes rones que produce Cartavio, este en particular esta al nivel del Barcelo Imperial, si lo mezclas que sea con poca Coca Cola para que disfrutes su sabor
Sweet, not too spicy. A nice rum for the rum rookie
Ron suave, dulce (no demasiado) e ideal para beberlo sólo o acompañado de refresco de cola.
Consta de un aroma frutal y un cuerpo sólido que nos dará una buena experiencia de sabores, en cuanto al alcohol es perceptible pero pasará inmediatamente.
This rum is only 1/2 the price of the Cartavio XO, and is quite good. Sweet, smooth, caramel flavors, soft burn, good finish!
I can definitely dig this one, not too sweet, not to strong. Def nice to sip.
For a $30 bottle it is a good choice for a decent rum. Not quite to the level of a bottle of Ron Cartavio XO, but not bad. The aroma is inviting, the taste is a little spicy and sweet with just a little lingering aftertaste.
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.😁
