A real sipping rum.
Taste : vanila, caramel and spices
The finish could be longer.
If i could give it an 8.5 i would.

Although not from carribean, this is an exceptional great rum. Full bodied, dark and just good to drink

I was a little bit sceptic when I first saw this one, but the curiosity got the better of me, so I bought it. And I do not have any regrets... None at all. This is good, really good... Great taste, great color in the glas... A real treat!

Sehr guter Rum, einer meiner Favoriten in einer wunderschönen Flasche, macht auf jedenfall eine gute Figur in jeder Rumbar. Der Rum ist mild, komplex und nicht zu süss. Für mich schmekt er nach dunkler Schokolade, Pflaumen, Holz und Tabak.

The 12 years is probably one of the most smooth in the category (12 years) in IMO.

So what about the XO

Eye: Copper, dark, dense.

Noise: Spicy wood, banana, dry fruit, some vanilla.

Taste: The same you smell is the same you taste, the banana is probably the most exotic note.

In general it is an amazing rum, awesome, delicious box and presentation.

It combines two of my favourites, the bottle from Rum Nation Panama 21 (although the top isn't quite as cool) and is Peruvian like Millonario XO. But somehow it isn't, the taste isn't as deep, interesting or fruity as either of those.

For this tasting I tried back to back with Millonario 15 sistema solera but will try again with the Millonario XO and Rum Nation Panama 21.

On the nose there's a slightly sharp vegetal smell.

To taste there's an initial hint of dark or burnt sugar but it's not incredibly sweet.

On the finish there's some sugar cane and a hint of burn.

As it develops there's some caramel and subtle fruits (but nothing like the fruit bomb of the Panama 21).

Pleasant enough and interesting but not a great rum.

I discovered Cartavio XO at Lima the airport among a lot of Pisco bottles. Great buy. I have not seen it outside Peru, and I have not been back. For sure a candidate for my "active collection".

Light, sweet, mild - great sweet sipping rum in a very nice bottle, with a nice cork and a beautiful gift can.

This rum you find in nice bottle with a wooden cork.
When the rum have been resting for a while you can feel vanilla, woody
Taste is vanilla and tropical fruit. Also some spice.
Rum is a very smooth and well balanced.
The aftertaste is long and fine

Smells Great, Sweet.
Taste is very nice, a little bite of alkohol, but very nice balanced.
