Sweet and lots of almonds, a bit bitter. Not as smooth as you would like
If you like the spanish school of rum you will not be dissapointed. Sweet and smooth, but not as rich and balanced as the XO, but a good and cheaper alternative.
I had the luxury of tasting Ron Esclavo XO, 15 and 12 year old rums back-to-back and what a nice treat it was on a sunny Saturday evening. Ron Esclavo rums come from the Oliver & Oliver group, so it does not surprise me a bit that they are all amazing since most of their rums are simply stunning. The Ron Esclavo XO has a very deep color, whereas the 15-year old Ron Esclavo is much lighter in color. Coffee, chocolate and toffee have an amazing balance and when you move downwards from XO, which is super smooth, to 15 which is very nice to 12 which has a gradually larger amount of burn at the end. Surprisingly but the 12 year old is much darker in color than the 15 year old. The Ron Esclavo XO is much better than the Dictador XO Insolent which has a similar flavor profile, but it's nowhere close this good, whereas the Ron Esclavo 15 and 12 are much closer to the Dictador XO Insolent flavor profile.

I like the Esclavo series. This is a notch below the XO but a very good value rum.
For me this product is pricevalue! Rum with body and long aftertaste. I like the XO slightly better but this one is not far away. This is in my opininon a "must have" for every Rum lovers. Ron Esclavo is a brand you should be proud about!
I tastend the 12 and 15 year on separate occasions. I really like both but the 15 year didn't impress me much more then the 12. It is smoother and s bit less sweet so depending on what you like the 15 could be worth the higher price.
Ron Esclavo 15
Fornuftig rom til prisen.
Men syndes at det er være at betale lidt ekstra og få storebror XO
Very nice rum with smooth and sweet taste, not mistake if you buy.

Esclavo-15 7 out of 10
Better than 12-year, but still a bit sharp in the end.
