Many thanks to Joola69 for sharing this with me as part of a rare rum exchange (this is clearly rare, because as of this review Joola69 and I are the only ones to have reviewed this).

Has a nice sweet base, that also smells and tastes of molasses, toffee, cognac, oak, caramel, and butterscotch. Though I'm not generally a huge fan of cognac aging, I think the fact that this is based on the Esclavo XO makes this a very good rum.

Rum tasting at home with a good buddy of mine continues with Ron Esclavo XO Cognac Cask Finish. Nice bottle and label design, very close to the traditional Ron Esclavo XO concept with a fancy matte black label. Bright mahogany color. Cognac aging and its produced sweetness is nicely masked with the Esclavo XO Rum bouquet of flavors to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Short and sweet burn at the end. So close to a ten, but not this time.

I would say this is a Esclavo XO with added complexity. However a complexity that falls well. Still have the sweetness of vanilla, caramel and butterscotch. But also brings a flavour of cognac in the end. Well worth a try! Update: Fantastic rum!!!
