Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Deep amber colour and a good nose with alcohol and age. The Solera process shows in this rum with the complex tastes and the burn of a younger rum. A good long finish with notes of caramel and wood. I was going to buy another because of the rating and availability but was slightly disappointed for $80can.
It is very sweet, but quite strong alcoholic flavour. Maybe it needs more time to breathe...
En super lækker Rom, som er utrolig dejlig og blød og rund med fin eftersmag. Kan absolut anbefales.
wow what a great taste from peru, a new star is Born.
I got a bottle from Peru with no prior warning. I opened and knew it was special. I didnt think I'd find anything to sway me from my opinion that Diplomatico Exclusiva was the best I'd tasted. One ice cube or neat does the trick. Deep developing flavours to savour. Its truly special.
Can't recommend Cartavio XO too highly. Working out how to get another bottle is the hard part. Not available in Australia.
Nice looking bottle with a wooden cork.
Color is deep copper. Taste it's very smooth and elegant. Vanilla some brown sugar and toffee. Maybe a little bit to sweet but it doesn't really matter because drinking this delicious rum it's like winning a freaking Oscar.
Very smooth initial taste with heavy butterscotch. Finishes with molasses and just an ever so hint of tobacco.
Color and consistency are outstanding. Definitely a sipping rum, and a really good one at that. Let it open up and you wont be disappointed.
this is a sipping rum, it would be sacrilege to mix.
nose first hints of alcohol followed by vanilla and toffee
on the palette toffee, vanilla with a slight but pleasurable warming sensation, leading into toffee, cinnamon and tobacco and long lasting vanilla molasses tobacco leaving you wanting more
after letting it rest for 5 minutes on an large ice cube the alcohol warmth lost a bit of its warming quality either way with or without is very pleasant
cant see to many being disappointed with this nectar
This is agreat rum, easy to drink and enjoy. I like it a lot.
This rum has a striking mahogany color, with an exquisite flavor that has added slightly vanilla, and with a deep sweet smell. The good thing (at least for me) is that in my country i can get it for up to $ 30 a bottle.
Este ron tiene un llamativo color caoba, con exquisito sabor que tiene añadido ligeramente vainilla, y con un olor dulce profundo. Lo bueno (al menos para mí) es que en mi país lo puedo conseguir hasta por $30 la botella.
Ron Cartavio XO has been claiming gradually some fame in the US, which is a good thing since we need more quality Peruvian rums over here pronto! Ron Cartavio XO has plenty of good flavors and hardly any burn at the end. It also has a very good price-quality ratio. Very well done indeed.
Bliver kun serveret til rom kender. Smager rigtig dejligt. God efter smag.
Nada que envidiarle a los rones considerados Top. Solo pondría por encima al Millonario XO, Abuelo Centuria y Pantation 20-years. El precio es bastante cómodo considerando la excelente calidad del producto. 100% recomendado.
smooth taste with the stronger alcohol feeling at the end, spice in the taste
dostal som sa k tomuto rumu na ochtnavke ktoru robilo bottles.sk . podla mna velmi slusny rum, vyvazeny, akurat korenisty, miene sladky ale na mna trolinku ostrejsi. 7.8/10
God rom. lidt til den tørre side. god duft. ikke så tør som Mccoy
Un excelente ron, que no podía tener un empaque mejor. Es suave y agradable al paladar; con notas de vainilla, caramelo y frutas, sin exagerar en lo dulce. Gran balance. Para tomarlo solo o en las rocas.
A nice rum from Peru, there is a nice combination of tobacco and leader on the palate, accaptable price for such a nice rum.
Man this Rum is just awesome. Very smooth and easy on palette.
I'm not a high class run drinker by any means[keep it under 100$ 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.
