The regular XO is almost unbarebly sweet, but the Cask Strength's alcohol levels help a little bit. Still very sweet and closer to 6.5 than 7.

Al naso caffè, liquirizia, melassa.
Gusto tipico solera di cioccolato, caffè, caramello e molto dolce, corposo e alcolico, con note lontane speziate, finale medio e intenso

Ikke så venlig som resten af serien, da jeg finder den en smule mere sprittet. Men en ganske dejlig rom alligevel

Den er stærk, lad den lige dampe af for at kunne nyde den, meget sød. Bestemt et bekendtskab værd.

I find that this rum is all sugar and alcohol. Very little complexity in the tasting notes

Considering the price, ok stuff. The nose is potent with notes of cinnamon, orange, chocolate and coffee. The palette is powerfull with the same notes found in the nose alongside sweet, burnt molasse, and a hint of leathery wood. The afterburn is sweet, creamy and spicy. You get alot of the tres hombres: captains choice "expirence" for a fourth of the price. But ultimately to sweet for me.

Den är väldigt skarp pga 65%, men kanske är det därför smaken exploderar i munnen och sitter länge. Vanilj men besk eftersmak.

The rum has a nice taste and a full body, but I feel that it is all attributed to the huge amount of sugar. Due to the sweetnes, the rum comes off as somewhat cheap (which it isn't) and generic. Thia makes it hard (for me) to distinguish any craftmanship, there is only sugar, and alcohol (with a strong burn!).
Nevertheless, if you like your rum sweet, it's a great choice. Although I also prefer a much lower alcohol percentage, I feel the two extremes complement each other nicely (but it is still very sweet).

All too strong. Ruins the taste. Some sweetness
10% lighter and it would have ben great.

Reading reviews I had built up in my mind how this might taste, and at the time when I started drinking Rum it was the best tasting (sweet) rum I'd tried. The bottle is boring and black with a white label. It is only 50cl.
The alcohol/sugar explodes in your mouth and the resultant aftermath tastes like I used to imagine a perfect sweet rum should taste. After a few months I could say maybe a little too much clove/five-spice.
There's also no depth, it's always wham, sweetness.
After a few months of drinking Velier, Foursquare and Agricoles I tried to go back to it. It wasn't enjoyable as a rum and it wasn't even worth keeping for cooking. Dumped down the sink.
