Amazing nose to start. Sweet hazlenut and nutmeg. A lot to like about the taste, starts really nice and sweet - just like I like it. Then a little spice with a medium finish. Only thing holding this down is a little bitter/tart taste that comes through. Still good sipper and I'd have it again.

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.

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. :-)

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

Got a dram of this in the advent calendar, a lovely drop to sip over ice

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.

Had never heard of this rum or brand so didn’t expect anything. Only had one glass but the taste surprised me and I actually really enjoyed it. That was a nice taster. A rum I will keep in my list to buy at occasion.
