Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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 one is something special. uniqe package with well balanced spice-sweet liquer taste after vanilla a litle bit caramel. I wish buy a bottle very long time
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.

Nose:very light,not so sweet,little bit alcoholic
Taste: not so strong in taste,caramel,oak wooden,vanilla,sweet
Tail:very tough,long lasting ,alcohol taste

I think I'll have this one for my collection
Very classy and smooth sipper with a complex long lasting taste. Easily recommendable to everyone.
Dieser Rum ist sehr gut abgerundet. Man merkt ihm das Alter und seine Reife an. Im positiven Sinne.
Fantastic and intense, fruity smooth. Very important. Absolutely not for mixing
Fine Rum, the Rolls Royce from Cartavio. Vanille Oak woody
Det finns mycket doft och smak men lite väl mycket ek, spetsig och spritig, lite vatten gör susen
The presentation is gorgeous - who's not swayed by that bottle?! - and the color is divine. The nose is thick and candy with caramel, and you lose none of that in the sip & swallow. But, for me, this rum's sweetness overpowers the obvious effort in aging and blending. I find the flavors that make an XO rum worth the expense are nearly drowned here. Admittedly, I found sipping it over a single ice cube improved the experience. But at this price point, that's not what I was expecting. Still, in the bottle, this might be the best-looking rum I've ever seen.
The look and feel is outstanding.
Taste: Nice one with a bit of spicey after taste.
Silny, sladky a trpky, urcite neni spatny ale zadna slava
8 + Valeur sûre si on recherche un rhum typé, équilibré, des notes de toffee, il se compare plus au millonario solera 15 qu'au XO à mes yeux cependant, mais le prix est convenable à 65 euros en moyenne.
This is a really good one. Complex in all areas and always a good choice!
Sans réelles surprises dans sa catégorie, mais c'est un rhum très équilibré et agréable. Des saveurs de vanille, caramel et noix. La bouteille est superbe. Il lui manque ce petit quelque chose qui le rendrait fabuleux.
Nice aroma, beautiful color, very sweet soft taste initially. A slight hint of overproof aftertaste, otherwise this rum is an 8+.
It has become a regular.
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.
