Now this is some good stuff
Well over 2,500 aged dark rums enjoyed and El Pasador de Oro XO was such a massive positive surprise and what a value! Bought it from the local Total Wine for $38 and it rivals the Diplomatico price-quality ratio. El Pasador de Oro XO is very smooth, no burn at all and contains plenty of exciting flavors and with a price tag of less than $40, it is also an amazing value.

Incredible value ( $36 in Texas ) very fine sipper !...nose; Soft dark Caramel , tropical ripe fruits , very soft wood and light whisper of licorice...palate; delicious very yummy ripe peaches, honey comb, sweet mango a touch of tart , mild but pure vanilla oak to round off flavors in mid palate , Finish ; very velvety with ripe apricot and a pinch of fresh grated cinnamon....aftertaste has a touch of sweet sautéed orange zests ..., and very light anis ....delicious at room temperature ( 75-80 F) , even better if let sit a little in glass , no mix, no water , no ice !
Délicieux rhum agé qui chauffe pas dans la gorge.
Pour l'instant mes préférés sont :
- Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva
- El Pasador de Oro X.O.
J'essaie de trouver d'autre rhum qui est dans le meme style que ceux la.
Rum is in beautiful white box, bottle is fantastically shaped, rum is very smooth, no burn at all and contains plenty of exciting flavors, for great money it offers a lot of flavours and aromas!
un rhum complexe veilli en fut de cognac. assemblage entre 8 et 15 ans lui donne un gout de canelle, de fruits exotiques et boisé. vraiment excellent et près a défier les rhum prestigieux.
Not only is this RUM incredibly delicious! It is ultra smooth. Beautiful in color and presentation (bottle). But why it deserves a 10 is the price point!!! I dare you to find ANY RUM as smooth, tasty, and refined under $40??? Sure there are worthy contenders. But none that are as overall palatable as this fine gem from Guatemala! I have about 10 absolute favorites and this is in my Top 5 easily! It is not as complex as say Don Pancho 18yr Reserva Especial or my absolute favorite: Plantation XO 20, but again, for the money, there is none better!
