Found the cartavio rum in Peru, enjoyed the 8 year when I was there but picked up the XO to being home and was not dissapointed.

A nice and sweet rum with almost no alcoholic taste. Not too different from the Zacapa 23.

Decadent, complex, exquisite and delightful...These words all best describe Cartavio XO. Wonderful glass presentation housing a beautiful nectar inside that illustrates just how good rum from Peru can be. Not necessarily a place that you would associate rum with, Cartavio has definitely placed its stamp on the rum world, in my opinion.
Smooth with subtle hints of toffee, brown sugar, some vanilla and baking spice. Oak and some dark fruit and nut components come through as well. If you let it sit or add a drop of water to your glass, you will be able to bring out other flavors and aromas that would otherwise remain hidden in this bounty.
Enjoy neat or with a splash of water or ice cube...don’t mix this! That is why they make $7.00 bottles of rum! Cheers

Sampled this rum at Cardiff Rum Festival.

It's m matured in American, French Limousin and Slovenian casks in a Solera system.

With a fruity, chocolatey and slightly nutty nose. It's rich with hints of fruit and chocolate in the mouth. A superb sipper!

excellent rhum, très belles arômes.
Lors de dégustation une entrée en douceur (sucre brun,un peu vanille) avec une finale épicée qui perdure. magnifique

This came to me as quite a surprise, but it is a bit harsher than I thought it would be. Otherwise, nose is bit smoky and the body has orange flavor, which might or might not be purely natural. At least is tastes naturally.

Been on my wish list for a while, and finally tried at Rumba in Seattle. Very nice nose with hint of molasses, but not too sweet smelling. Very smooth taste and wonderful finish. Worth buying.

Ron Cartavio XO je mimořádně jemný rum s temně mahagonovou barvou a nádhernou vůní po karamelovém sirupu, vanilce, zázvoru, skořici, brusinkách a banánu. Při prvním ochutnání ucítíte měkkou sladkost, na kterou navazuje chuť dubu, svěžího tabáku, bohaté tmavé čokolády a sušených brusinek a švestek.

Jedná se o jedinečný stařený rum, který zraje v dubových sudech z Ameriky, Francie a Slovinska. Firma vyrábějící značku Cartavio byla v Peru založena již v roce 1929. Lihovar se nachází hned vedle velkého cukrovaru, díky kterému má stálý přísun čerstvé melasy. Ron Cartavio XO byl připraven v roce 2009 u příležitosti 80. výročí založení palírny.

Great in an old fashioned smooth with a nice finish.

Fantastisk smak. Fyllig färg, mycket dofter. Vanilj, karamell toffee men nånting gör ändå att den hälften så dyra diplomatico reserva exclusiva springer cirklar runt den här. Kanske är det längden på eftersmaken?
