This is like a deeper, richer, dryer version of the Kaniche XO, which I already thought was a great rum. Everything seems to have been tweaked just a bit in all the right ways leaving you with this absolutely masterful tropical cocktail-in-a-bottle!
Nose- That typical Kaniche core of tropical fruit (pineapple, dried mango), christmas spice and coconut. The usual molasses is replaced with a burnt toffee, giving off a darker vibe that plays nicely with the over all medicinal-ness of the nose. Definitely dryer than other Kaniche's, but still with an underlying sweetness.
Palette- This rum has all kinds of wonderful things that you never thought would go together! Coconut, orange zest, olive brine and aloe, with huge hits of christmas spice and molasses! There is a definite sweetness here, so if you think added sugars are the work of the devil, you may be upset. Then again, if you're that much of a purist, hopefully you can appreciate the rest of the quality in this work of art enough that you can look past that. The flavors all play together seamlessly and then just seem to go on and on, making it difficult to tell where the palette ends and the finish begins!
Finish- All of those great flavors from before slowly morph into even more tropical, rummy goodness, bringing out mango (tommy) peel, more baking spice, and a nice, sweet campfire smoke. The finish then sticks around for minutes, carrying a nice thick texture.
To top it all off, this rum is smooth as, without even a hint of a burn as it goes down. Though that said, it does bring that delightful warming sensation to your entire upper body.
This is just EXCELLENT rum!! I honestly cannot think of a single thing I would change. Thank you, and good on you Maison Ferrand. Good on you.

Sugar: est 20 - 22 GPL. Similar to the Kaniche XO, but this version is a little smoother, just a touch less sweet, and the coconut flavour is toned down a bit.
It also has a bit more of the cognac and orange-pineapple-mango flavours in the mixture. Good balance of oak and spice as well. I would rate this one a half point above the Kaniche XO.

How did a distillery make a rum this good at this price point? Drinking this rum is like feeling the wee baby Jesus tap-dancing down my throat. I put this up there with Plantation 20 and Zacapa XO.

I wasn't expecting to like this rum as much as I do because of the low price of only $39.99 (Total Wines & More 2017) and because I'm usually not a big fan of bourbon aged rums. However this also has cognac aging, which I find works better with rum than bourbon or just bourbon alone.

Smells and tastes of molasses, spice, cognac, oak, and bourbon. Nicely sweet for a bourbon aged rum.

I like this more than many more expensive rums I've tried. I give it a 9 and highly recommend it for the money! My score does NOT factor in the price.

Smooth & easy. Beautifully aged. Amazing bang for buck at $40. Highly recommended.

I chose this Panamanian Kaniche over it's younger brothers from Barbados as my first one from them. This rum almost makes it into my top 3 ratings, but not quite. Maybe time will tell. Is it really a cheaper version of Plantation XO? Not really. It is a very good rum, but it just does not belong up there with my favorites. I flunked tasting notes, so don't ask me about that.

Rigtig god rom der hverken er for sød eller for sprittet til en rigtig fin pris.

Dejlig rom, overrasket over sammensætningen. Ikke helt så sød som jeg normalt er til, men falder meget i min smag

Very smooth! No bite at all. Not sweet but not bland either. Has the right aromatic smell of rum and cognac. Always looking forward to the next sip!
