This rum was highly recommended at liquor store. The bottle and color looked promising plus it’s from Peru. I had great expectations but was let down, way to sweet for me as is Zacapa 23. Not saying I can’t drink them but dozen others I would prefer. Did not leave me with anything memorable doubt I would buy it again.

This is a great sipper. It is smooth going down!!!

Complex, sophisticated and sweet with intense aromas of spices, nuts, vanilla, and chocolate. Spice and butter are prominent flavors. Perfect for sipping.

One of my favourite rums, the Cartavio XO hits all the spots with a nicely balanced sweetness that completes the spicy flavour just perfectly. Had it been slightly more aromatic and lengthy in the flavour it could easily be an all time best rum ever!

From all the rums i‘ve tried so far, I liked this one most!

The color is exquisite. Great nose. Has a wonderful smokey quality that appears to have been finished in charred barrels. Vanilla and nutmeg with a hint of maple and allspice. Definitely not too sweet. Low but soulful burn and then more smoke and campfire notes. Smooth across the pallet. Complex with a strong lingering finish. 8.5 for sure. Extraordinary rum. Slightly better neat than on ice but excellent either way.

Unverfälscht im Geschmack. Top rum sehr fein keine schärfe

Ordentlicher Rum, an dem nichts auszusetzen ist. Bis man den Preis in Betracht zieht. Für ~60€ erwarte Ich einfach mehr. Tolle Flasche, toller Korken, aber dann hört es auch schon auf. Erinnert mich an den Botucal oder Pampero vom Geschmack her. Definitv kein High-Class-Rum...

Schmeckt nach feuchtem Fass.

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 wouldn't quite say. I Think its a little sweet and i would have prefered a little more abv.

It is not balanced like Zacapa XO, but rounder than Zacapa 23.
Smell is a little bit like Zacapa 23 (same herbs, vegetal notes).
If you like Zacapa Rums, you would like this one also.

Smell: dried fruits (raisins), cookies, burnt sugar, caramel, oak, herbs/plants, some barrel/gum
Taste: nice sweetness (caramel), fruit (peach), cookies, burnt sugar, wood, some spice
Finish: short to medium long, sweetness and then cherries in the aftertaste

City: Cartavio Peru
Material: Molasses
Age: 10-30 (in average 18)
Barrels: Oak barrels from France, USA and Slovakia (sherry and bourbon)
Master blender: Frederico Schulz

Sweetness: 3.5 / 5
Spice: 1.5 / 5
Fruit: 2.5 / 5
Mildness: 4 / 5

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. If it was a touch cheaper I'd say to a 9/10

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.
