Tasty, but not quite great
It’s an unmistakable a Bajan rum.
But it differs from the other I have with its strong cocos and vanilla aroma and taste as well as during the afterburn. It’s very soft and smooth. The afterburn is initially quite strong but that doesn’t last very long after that there is coming a quite long but weak afterburn.
As a summary it’s quite OK, but none of my favorites mostly because I’m not a fan of independent bottlers.
But my wife likes it, so I leave it to her.
Picture: My bottle
Duftet nach Barbados Rum feines Holz mit etwas Vanille
Im Mund etwas süss ebenfalls vanille und etwas Holz.
Alles in allem etwas flach aber nicht wirklich mild.
Rum tasting in Sofia Bulgaria started with Rum Nation Barbados XO. Very nice and unique bottle and label design. Golden color. Mild oakiness mixed with some vanilla to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Dry and very short burn at the end due to no added sugar.
