Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
sød, varm og lige til at gå til, minder lidt om Millonario XO. Virkelig en god dram.
This is a sweet rum. If you like Plantation, Angostura, Diplomatico, etc., you should also like this one very much. Flavor notes that can immediately be appreciated include nuts, cinnammon, clove, and vanilla.
The flavor is strong and really good; easy to enjoy in any form.
En flot mørk gylden farve med en duft af molasse, krydderier og nødder. Smagen er krydret og sød med en citrusnoter. En god kompleks rom, der udvikler sig med en lang eftersmag med noter af vanilie, læder og tobak. En rigtig god og interessant rom.
Kleur: amber bruin.
Aroma en smaak: vanille, fruit, chocolade, banaan.
Zachte lekkere Rum, heerlijk.
Ron Cartavio XO Rum er en rom med en sødlig og krydret smag. At flasken så også en smuk er kun et plus.
Dejlig anderledes flaske.
God, kompleks Rom, skal smags igen.
