Very similar to Grand Reserve. It is probably good rum, but I am not really fan of rums with the taste of brandy.

Ruvuere du mat XO
větší očekávání, ale asi není vyloženě můj styl. Vůně ovocná a velmi příjemná a sofistikovaná
Styl připomínající koňak
Chuť výrazná , suchá a lehce pálivá

nice golden / amber colour; elegant aromatic bouquet dominated by cane and dry fruits, especially plum flavour; though spicy this rum still has a soft palate in my view. Finish/aftertaste is very fine but could be somewhat longer. Therefore (only) 8/10 rating. Nevertheless this rum is actually my standard rum. Aged in (french) limousin barrels which differntiates this rum from competitors that have aged in less expensive american oak barrels. According to the producer web site this blended rum from the island of Reunion is matured for 6 years.

I just love the simplicity of the bottle and the wonderful colour of this rum. One of my favourites and the rum that made me a rum fanatic. It has a wonderful nose, tickels your tongue and has a lovely sweet aftertaste. Great value for money for an XO. I can't keep myself from comparing any new rum I taste to this one.

Beau nez, attaque caramel mais tout en douceur et final round. Un classique

At the price of €50 i find this a superb XO. Beautiful dark colour with a fruity nose. Good smooth, little sweet taste with fruits, vanilla and spices. Long lasting aftertaste that makes you wish for more.

Très bonne surprise que ce xo, avec du caractère et sans excès dans les épices ou le boisé. Rivière du mat est ce qui se fait de mieux à la Réunion.

Ce rhum est végétal avec une attaque assez vive en bouche ! Il est boisé et épicé ( chêne, tabac, ...). Belle surprise et moins traditionnel que de nombreux XO.

Gout poivré et une finale sur le chêne, les épices et les fruits.


The beautiful age XO results in a copper color and mahogany highlights . The nose is marked by floral notes the power and tenderness of dried fruit nuances, vanilla, licorice and macerated fruit. In the background are expressed notes of tobacco and forested peaks. Nice to have !
