Flawed with a glimmer of hope
Nose of whiskey, smoke and vanilla. The taste is smoke with smoke. It is not for me at all.
I love the ordinary XO which I think is a topshelve rum. So I expected a lot from this but I was so disapointed. It is the smoke that dominates all. I taste some of the ordinary XO, but the smoke ruins it all. Perhaps som Whiskylovers can take a step into the Rumworld with this one.
Rum tasting at home with a good buddy of mine continues with Ron Esclavo XO Stauning Whisky Cask Finish. Nice bottle and label design, very close to the traditional Ron Esclavo XO concept with a fancy matte black label. Mahogany color. Plenty of oak and ridiculous amount of peatiness to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Super strong burn at the end. Whisky lovers can easily add 4 points to my score. Peaty Whisky lovers can add 7 points. Not for me though.
