Romain m à fait découvrir ce merveilleux rhum. Un goût de noisette de chêne, il est doux complexe et long en bouche. Vraiment un wow.
Ron Cartavio XO has been claiming gradually some fame in the US, which is a good thing since we need more quality Peruvian rums over here pronto! Ron Cartavio XO has plenty of good flavors and hardly any burn at the end. It also has a very good price-quality ratio. Very well done indeed.
Bliver kun serveret til rom kender. Smager rigtig dejligt. God efter smag.
Nada que envidiarle a los rones considerados Top. Solo pondría por encima al Millonario XO, Abuelo Centuria y Pantation 20-years. El precio es bastante cómodo considerando la excelente calidad del producto. 100% recomendado.
smooth taste with the stronger alcohol feeling at the end, spice in the taste
dostal som sa k tomuto rumu na ochtnavke ktoru robilo bottles.sk . podla mna velmi slusny rum, vyvazeny, akurat korenisty, miene sladky ale na mna trolinku ostrejsi. 7.8/10
God rom. lidt til den tørre side. god duft. ikke så tør som Mccoy
Un excelente ron, que no podía tener un empaque mejor. Es suave y agradable al paladar; con notas de vainilla, caramelo y frutas, sin exagerar en lo dulce. Gran balance. Para tomarlo solo o en las rocas.
A nice rum from Peru, there is a nice combination of tobacco and leader on the palate, accaptable price for such a nice rum.
Man this Rum is just awesome. Very smooth and easy on palette.
I'm not a high class run drinker by any means[keep it under 100$ a bottle] and I saw this at my local Binnys and read these reviews and got it. So glad I did. I love my sherry oak rums and vanilla flavored by captain Morgan, for me this is a better tastings and smoother version of those. Zaya gran reserve and pilar 24 are 2 others I love and this is just as good.
Sweet but still with a lot of complexity. Love it!
For the price it is certainly good. Very sweet and a little synthetic
The taste is sweet. The nose is sweet and sugary. The after taste is momentary and no burn on the nose or in the throat but a slight tingle on the roof of the mouth. This taste very similar to El Pasador De Oro. With the snifter glass I can really appreciate the difference nose, with the palate and the finish. It's worth the price. Bonuses is I got it for $55 instead of 70+. #Winning
I found this rum on a recent trip to Jacksonville and decided to mark one off my wish list.
Now I wish I hadn't bothered.
Apparently my opinion will be going against the grain here but this rum would be great if they hadn't sugared it so much.
Am I drinking rum or molasses with alcohol added?
This could almost be pancake syrup.
The syrupy sweetness is so overwhelming that it hides some elements and flavor profiles that would have made for a great rum.
But someone decided to ruin what could've been a great rum.
Paid way too much for this. Sad. My fault.
I forced myself to try to take extra sips and finally found some vanilla and toffee undertones to it along with some oak tannin. Even a hint of banana.
Beyond that, there's not much.
I read so many praises for this rum. Makes me wonder if I got a counterfeit because what I got sure ain't what others describe. Don't get me wrong...there are some sugared rums that I actually like but this one goes overboard. I cannot recommend it as a sipping rum unless you're into drinking syrup. I could see this being effectively used in drinks with an antithesis of sweetness such as coffee drinks or drinks using more bitters than the average. Any other suggestions? I cannot see this used in fruit-based drinks. The sugariness would be completely off the charts. And not in a good way.
My recommendation? Not worth the $65-70 price. Many better rums for half that.
Mahogni farvet. Sødlig eg, mørke bær og moderat alkohol i næsen. Kompleks smag af muscovado sukker, eg, modne bær og krydderier. Rigtig lækker.
A nice and smooth rum and deffently not to sweet. Long lasting taste tjat leaves a spicy after taste
This solera rum from Peru comes in a very nice decanter! Actually, the bottle itself is probably the thing I like the best about this rum. Its a rum blend with rum up to 18 years of age. It is smooth, sweet, has subtle hints of vanilla, spice, honey and caramel. I would love to try a higher proof expression of this brand.
Reminded me of a better version of the Kirk and Sweeney 23. Lots of licorice with a very velvety mouthfeel.
Glass : Mahogany color with nice amber reflects
Nose : a litlle bit strong a first breathing but nice afterwards.
Mouth : aromas are simillar as the nose : Coffee, chocolate with a litlle touch of spices at the end.
Well balanced, this Cartavio XO is a really nice product.
Really fantastic choice for all who love sweet rums with perfect balanced taste. Similar to Millonario XO.
En super god rom. Var meget imponeret over den. Den har det hele.
este es un rum que por su precio y calidad puede ser de diario con notas avainillada y suave sabor en boca al conjunto a un cohiba esplendio es para pasar una noche excepcional
This is a fantastic rum. From nose to finish it is most excellent. It has a slight sweetness to it and comes across the tongue like a cloud. Beautiful inlaid bottle, very heavy and matches the pure nectar that dwells from with in. Paid $70 and it is well worth it. You gotta drink it neat....
