Smokey ,sweet, and a little spicy yet smooth. This makes an exceptional rum and coke too.
sugar test-8g

It is flavorful, full bodied, with just the right amount of sweetness. It is similar to brugal 1888. Maybe a slight bit more sweet and less fruity but close. I paid $30 and considered that a steal for the quality. I can't wait the try the xo version.

taste and finish are both dominated by notes of tabac, coffee and caramel, coming by in a nice and balanced manner, mild and not complex. Overall this rum has a very sweet taste. Finish is not very long unfortunately.

Una muestra de los.excelentes rones que produce Cartavio, este en particular esta al nivel del Barcelo Imperial, si lo mezclas que sea con poca Coca Cola para que disfrutes su sabor

I ran across this one in Texas this morning and remembered that this distiller got quite a number of reviews here. I also thought that it was from Columbia as I now seem to be gravitating to rum from there. A 12 Year Old Solera Rum for $33 sounded like a good deal......until I opened it up when I got home and found out that it was not a true Caribbean rum, being from Peru. Sorry, but the flavors just cannot match any rum from the Caribbean.

The first taste was after letting it breathe for only about 10 minutes, so it initially got an unfair rating of 5. One needs to let this one breathe in the snifter for at least an hour. Then the harsh alcohol taste finally fades to let the rich flavors come out with only 8 gpl of added sugar. The flavors are still no match for the finest of Caribbean rums since this one is in a class all by itself. It just takes getting used to. Be patient with this lady and you may come to love her.

Ron suave, dulce (no demasiado) e ideal para beberlo sólo o acompañado de refresco de cola.
Consta de un aroma frutal y un cuerpo sólido que nos dará una buena experiencia de sabores, en cuanto al alcohol es perceptible pero pasará inmediatamente.

Este ron es nuestro engreído, bueno, rico y barato. Probablemente el que más tomo.

Ikke en dårlig rom, men den mangler lidt mere smag, for at slå rigtig igennem!!!

This rum is only 1/2 the price of the Cartavio XO, and is quite good. Sweet, smooth, caramel flavors, soft burn, good finish!


Un ron que le hace el pare a cualquiera.
Sorprende su calidad y finura en todos los sentidos!
Muy Bien Cartavio!

Un ron con gran carácter. Tiene la base del XO. Al probarlo es del dulce ideal y no quema tanto al pasarlo. Se deja tomar solo y con hielo mejor aún.

I can definitely dig this one, not too sweet, not to strong. Def nice to sip.

Den er okay, men den er ikke nogen stor rom oplevelse. Lidt tør i smage, mangler lidt sødme. Den er god sammen med cola.

Es un buen ron para mezclar con Cocacola, debido a que es un ron fuerte, de muy buen sabor y un ligero toque de dulzura.

What a massive difference between the relatively smooth Ron Cartavio XO and the nasty 12 year old. I bought a bottle of this vile stuff at the Lima airport and had a hard time consuming the bottle with my colleague having a bottle of Coke to go with it. The 12 year old is not a neat sipper at all and even with Coke there is a nasty burn which you can taste through the Coke.

Very good packaging. A very smooth rum with a hint of alcohol that is masked a bit too much by the sweetness on the mid pallet, but with a dryness taking over on the finish. Good length. Easy to drink but lacks complexity. Too expensive as plenty of other rums out there that are more interesting and cheaper.

Sweet, smooth, caramel flavors, soft burn, good finish!

Nice manly rum. Lots if leather, some hints of DRY fruits, slight sweetness but u gotta look for it. I try all rum with coke even though i drink 80% of my rum neat. This mames an extremely excellent rum n coke. Give it a run.😁

Really smooth. From Peru. Oak, caramel, not too sweet.

esta cat fue divertida lo pude disfrutar en machu pichu fuerte al paladar con sus notas añejas chocolatadas y un toque caneloso

Es un ron que no sabe añejo y está muy perfumado a frutas, no lo volvería comprar!


Nose: toffee and cacao with a hint of butter.

Pallet: gentle sweetness with a long pleasent burn.

I must admit that I did have higher demand on Cartavio 12 year based on that a lot of other good Rum producers seems to do a really good Rum around 12 year storage even in Solera method. This 12 year Cartavio seems to have to much young Rum to give it the best round taste and aftertaste. In my opinion it could be even 6, sorry Cartavio 12 year, you need to improve.

The taste is dominated of the alcohol, lacks smoothness and charastics of a zipper rum
