Cinnamon and spice with sweet molasses. Yummy with orange vanilla. Great as a surprise in an advent calendar but good as far as spiced rums go. Certainly cures the midwinter nights while making you feel like a pirate.

I'm not a big fan of spiced rum and while this one didn't convert me over for sipping it did at least convince me to use spiced rums more for mixed drinks.

The nose has heavy cinnamon and coffee notes with a hint of orange. The first taste definitely is bit of a "sugar bomb" that makes me worry about added sugar. You get more cinnamon taste as well as some fruit.

If I drink this in the future it will be either as a mixer or as a dessert drink.

It lives up to it's hype. It has very strong flavours to start. A mixture of of aniseed, cardimon, orange peel and a whole lot of spices. A proper "Christmas pudding" as another reviewer said. Easy sipping once it's sat on an ice cube for a minute or two. Sweet at the start, spice in the middle and a touch of dry oak at the end. Yeah I'll have another one.

This is not for me , far too harsh on flavours of orange and aniseed . Like a Christmas pudding I'm a glass which some people in the market will love, sadly not this pirate ...

I had this side by side with Rumbullion Spiced, and I definitely preferred this one. The Rumbullion spice was mostly spice and orange, while the XO is mostly spice and rum, with a nice 46.2% kick (vs 43% for the Spiced).

Smells and tastes of cloves and rum, with just a little vanilla, orange, and cinnamon. It's the added rum flavor that makes this better than the Spiced to me.

To the user that asked if there's a better spiced rum, I believe the Koloa Spiced Rum tops this one. :-)

Interesting rum. But after 15y I would expect more.

Anfänglich etwas starker alkoholgeschmack. Anschließend angenehm, süss, und leicht fruchtig

Pretty strong rum. But very good for a spiced one. Will probably try more variants of the brand.

On the nose there is cola gummy bears, cinnamon, chocolate and toffee.

On the palate there is vanilla, cacao nibs, cola and a lot of warm spices. Charred oak, cayenne pepper, caramel and dark chocolate. Finish is medium to long with wood spices and chocolate.
