Now this is some good stuff
Nothing wrong with this one had several bottles from TW and just tried another. Smooth well aged rum medium depth and linger, some sweetness.sampling the Gran Reserve side by side and there is a clear difference in depth.
Guatemalan Rum with a rich copper/bronze colour in the glass, very appealing. Thick , tasty. The nose above the glass bring oak spice, dark tobacco, and rich baking spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and vanilla). There are hints of licorice and raisins in the air as well as chocolate.
As the glass breathes, some fruity oranges. The empty glass is full the lingering smells of rich oak and baking spices, dark bittersweet chocolate and broken walnuts.
The rum features a light caramel sweetness which runs through the sipping experience. The mouthfeel is creamy with fine oak spice unraveling from the sweetness and heating my palate. Orange marmalade, caramel toffee, oak and baking spices (vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg) are all melded together into a very nice rum which is easy to sip and tasty.
El Pasador de Oro XO is an excellent sipping rum.
Very subtle citrus tones on the nose. Somewhere between oranges and apricots. Very sweet tongue, carries a subtle spice, but boldly displays tones of caramel and vanilla. Powerful sweetness masks a risidually bitter undertone. Compliments itself wonderfully.
Un de mes rhums préférés. Beaucoup de finesse. De légères notes boisées et vanillées avec une belle longueur en bouche. Un excellent rapport qualité / prix
For years I have been a fan of another rum until I was given a bottle of this as a birthday gift. I savor this neat. Smooth, sweet no alcohol burn. I finished it and went and bought another. At around $40US you can't beat the value. It is now a mainstay of my shelf.
