A typical Santos Dumont, sweet, strong, labeled as XO but in fact elixir-grade GPL; affordable (and quite often in discount around my area... not that I'd give a damn anymore). Strong and distinctive nose and taste of overriped fruits and one of the Czech sweet cakes I remember from I was growing up. It's made of chocolate, cocoa, vanilla and sugar which applies on this rum as well. (I don't like the smell of it.)
I was directly comparing this rum with Santos Dumond XO and I was very surprised I like XO more now, probably as less sweet and more flavors. (I'd re-buy neither of them nowadays, just keep consuming already-purchased and 'vitrinized' bottles.)
Though Palmira is overall less fruity and more vanilla-sweet, I find both rums boring, overly sweet and not very tasty any more.
I re-rated them equally 5/10 now as XO is a tad better but price to quality ratio speaks favours Palmira.
It was like: "Daddy are you on the other side of the country near this great shop with spirits?" - "Yeah I'm 30km away" - "Then give me 10 minutes to choose something and call them I've you can pick it up on the way"...

This RUM is awesome.. No wait it's AWESOME... it's LE... (wait for it) ..GENDARY! ;).
Smooth, perfectly sweet, well-balanced, with some rasins and walnuta liquer notes. Just astonishing!
It has a beautiful, heavy bottle, suposlingly individualy numbered.
Skvely sladsi rum, kde sladkost vobec nie je rusiva. Skvela harmonia vanilky a ovocnosti, konkretne tam citit marhulu. Velmi dobry dlho trvajuci zaver. Mam flase z prvej uvadzacej 2000ovej varky, a tie su fakt skvele
Pro milovníky sladkých rumů
Vůně: maršmeloun, kokos, vanilka, karamel

Dobrý rum, ale spíš pro ženy, nebo začínající rumaře.
One and the same taste of Santos / A.H.Riise, I used to enjoy it and I couldn't get enough, but I will never return to these sweets and I will only keep Santos Elixir in the collection because of my wife ...
Pořád jedna chuť Santos/A.H.Riise, kdysi mě to bavilo a nemohl jsem se nabažit, ale již se k těmto slaďákům nikdy nevrátím a ženě udržím ve sbírce jen Santos Elixir...
Asi nejlepší co jsem zatím pil a s cenou do 1000,- Kč velmi dobrá volba. Sladší, krásně voní. Prezrale ovoce, vanilka, mandle, kdo má rad sladší rumy určitě neudělá chybu. Po dopití hned kupuji další láhev
