So, i went to a rumshop out of town. We talk rum for a bit and chattet. At Some point She points to this beutifull bottle claiming its the Best rom in the World. Looking at the bottle i wasn't impressed. I 40% abv solera rum from? Not that special Looking at the bottle.
Wow was i gladly surprised. A Smooth and full bodied rum with great aroma and a Nice long finish.i must admit its a Really good rum. But to say its the Best rom in the World? I World suite say. I Think its a Little sweet and i World have liked a Little more abv.

Barrels: Oak barrels from France, USA and Slovakia (sherry und bourbon)

Smell: dried fruits (plums), burnt sugar, caramel, oak.
Taste: nice sweetness (caramel), fruit, burnt sugar, slight bitterness.
It's less sweet than Zacapa 23.
It is not as balanced as Zacapa XO, but a bit rounder than Zacapa 23.
Smell similar to Zacapa 23, somewhat less intense and less sweet.
If you like Zacapa Rums, you would like this one also.

Very smooth and sweet rum in a stylish bottle and a perfect color.
Ron Peruano de la empresa Cartavio, primera empresa ronera en Peru. Ron de alta gama XO, presentacion en botella de coleccion con corcho de madera, caja desmontable. Precio muy accesible para la calidad del ron, aproximadamente 40 dolares (Duty Free Aeropuerto Jorge Chavez). Ron de gran calidad, de los mejores que he probado, y es peruano!
I was introduced to this rum by a friend and wow, what a drink! A hint of alcohol out of the bottle, it quickly evaporates and is replaced by caramel, spice and a little brown sugar. Almost no burn. I use this rum to show skeptics that rum can be drank neat and enjoyed like a fine Scotch or Cognac.
...But just not quite complex and layered enough for a 9/10. Very enjoyable, nothing about it offends. I just want the tiniest extra punch to my rum. Definitely worth purchasing if you're willing to part with £60.
I first received this as a sample from my parents after they'd been to Spain. The sample was truly delicious, like a treacle toffee with a kick but the rum I felt was a little too expensive for me to purchase a bottle. I later received this as a gift, the full bottle wasn't quite as tasty but still a nice smooth rum - maybe I need another bottle to double check. If you can get this on a good offer then give it a try, here in the UK I feel it doesn't quite live up to the high price (for example in some places its a whole Diplomatico Exclusiva Reserva more expensive than a Zacapa 23 Solera - might as well get both of 'em instead)
I love this rum. I have to order it from out of state because WA doesn't carry it. It's worth the shipping charge. It's smooth, has nice caramel over tones, molasses back and just the right amount of sweetness.
If you like QRM 30 and Esclavo XO you will also love this.
Bardzo delikatny, przyjemny do picia. Piękny kolor oraz ekskluzywna butelka. Może brakuje mu czegoś co wyróżniało by go z tłumu, czegoś urzekającego. Natomiast kompozycja, smak, posmak to wzór tego jak powinien smakować dobry rum.
In Sept. iI reared this rum a 5 and stated, “Rum taste is personal. So don’t take my review personal.You could drink this all day and be happy But at the end of the day have you had a great rum? Single note of butterscotch vanilla toffee. The 44g/l of “additives” kill all the complexity, if it existed. Paid $58 US for the last time and will serve to my friends before the expiration date. Keep searching.” I’m Nov. I re-tasted and my rating was to harsh, am revising to a six.
Ron Cartavio XO - love it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Za tu cenu jsem očekával, že bude rum lépe vybalancovaný jak tomu bývá v této cenové kategorii u Oliver and Oliver, třeba Ophyum 12y. Srovnával jsem současně s Botran Solera 18y a z prvu jsem ve vůni neviděl rozdíl. Nakonec z ostrého alkoholu vystupuje trocha vanilky s karamelem. Je plnější než Botran a hlavně má dlouhý příjemný závěr. Surový, ostrý začátek prostě ty 2 body ubral. Mám levnější favority podobné chuti.
A beautiful mahogany colour in the glass , very sweet aromas of toffee , chocolate , honey and brown sugar plus vanilla. Sips very easily , sweet and spicey... good warm mouth feel. A bit thin like a muted D.R.E maybe ? No burn in the throat . To be honest its a bit too sweet (44 gms of sugar ) and a bit too thin for me.
Un ron espectacular, para el perfil dulce que tiene, presenta un golpe alcohólico aceptable y duradero en boca
Smagt til romhattens romfestival 2019. Den får en 8'er.
Mir persönlich schon etwas zu süss.
Ansonsten geschmacklich ok.
V mém případě se těžko bude hledat něco víc, nasládlý, luxusní moučník
Great rum in the cool bottle and nice wooden cap.
As many people say, this is really tasty one.
Full body, smooth, very palatable.
Everyone can smile, drink this rum.
This rum have been shipped from Peru to Norway, and it's absolutely worth the journey!
Let it breathe for 10 minutes in the glass, while sniffing the smell of brown sugar and vanilla.
A wonderful bite in the mouth, and let it roll around for ten seconds, then you feel the exotic aroma fill you with pure pleasure.
Bought this one on chance in Cusco.
Happy I did!!
Really well balanced.
Should have bought more bottles!
Dark amber color. Nose of raisins, toffee, brown sugar, ripe banana, vanilla and a hint of oak. Slight mineral touch as well. On the palet - Sweet coffee note, with burned candied sugar. Notes of vanilla and banana as well. Medium to long finish, and with a lovely coating of the mouth. A lovely rum, but a tat to sweet. It would be lovely with som aromas, that didn't drown in the sugar.
I have been looking forward to this one for a number of years; and to my surprise, one day it showed up on the LCBO website. 45 minutes later it was in my possession.
On the nose there seems to be a lot of scents vying to be top dog.
The taste was a little disappointing to me personally; something about a dry oaky rum that seems to have added sugar leaves a bitter aftertaste in my mouth (if that makes sense).
It is smooth and that’s always a plus but I just don’t like the aftertaste.
After reading other reviews; it seems a lot people like this one. I guess to each their own.
