Dejlig duft. Men den brænder ens smagsløg af. Puha
I bought this, after I really liked the XM 7yo. This one is not much better and looses against the El Dorado 12yo, which is even a bit cheaper than this one.
I like the smell and the spiciness. But I do not like the unpleasant and overwhelming harsh alcohol. There are way better and way cheaper rums out there!
A 12 year old rum blended and bottled in Guyana by Banks D'Aguiar Industries & Holdings. Complex notes of brown sugar, molasses, aromatic leaf and coffee.
I just assume that any 12-year old rum will be at least reasonably good.
XM Special 12 Years shot that assumption out of the water.
This rum is bitter and harsh.
I don't know that even Coke as a mixer would make it pleasant to drink.
With so many good options out there, why subject yourself to this?
Har håb i duften, men smagen er ikke mig. Og der er for meget sprit og agricoliske toner.
This one was a bit harsh and it’s not a rum I would go out of my way to try again.
XM Special 12 year comes from Guyana, same distillery as the El Dorado rum family. XM Special 12 year is pure coffee liquor from the initial taste to the last sip. There is a tiny hint of a very nice aged rum in the background, but unfortunately it's drowned out on the strong coffee flavor. No afterburn at all, so the XM has rested well enough. If you love coffee, then you will enjoy this run greatly. Otherwise better to stick with El Dorado 12 year old rum.
