Ron Carvatio XO comes in a classic bottle with a wooden cork. The rum is delivered in an tin box (picture). Hight class!

At first you smell some alcohol but when the rum have been resting for a while in the glass the aroma explodes with toffee, caramel and vanilla. One of the best aromas.

In mouth you get vanilla, caramel and fruit. You also get some spice in a very nice way. It is a very smooth and well balanced rum.

The aftertaste is long and sweet with some spice.

This is a favourite that I truly can recommend. The price is a bit high but it only costs half as much as Diplomático Ambassador Selection and I think this rum is almost in the same class.


fantastic bottle look, aromatic, smooth, tasty... and expensive :)
But worthy.

This just appeared at my local liquor store for the first time, so I grabbed a bottle. I was VERY impressed with the taste based on the reasonable cost ($69.99 K&L Wines 2015).

Though I don't count it in my scoring, this is one of the nicest bottles in my collection. A beautiful shape, and a beautiful color (see rumratings photo).

Smells of vanilla, spice, sweet molasses, honey, and hazelnut; the taste is equally nice. I like this a lot!

A Solera process rum with the oldest in the mix coming in at 18 years old. I was surprised there was a rum from Peru.... but hey! I'll try that. Glad I did. A rare find in most parts outside Peru... I'm tempted to buy as much as I can find before it's gone... so I don't have to find some excuse to fly to Peru so I can bring home more than I'm allowed to bring home. It smells fantastic and tastes the same. Sweet and smooth with a beautiful long finish. I've tried rum in nice bottles and thought... "they had to put this in a nice bottle to justify the price." When I drank this rum... my thought was, "this is in a nice bottle because it's a great rum and should be in a nice bottle." 3 thumbs up.


Best rum I've ever had. So smooth and perfect to drink on the rocks.

Great rum in a nice pacakage. The nose is potent with sweet, burnt, brown sugar, baked banana, raisins and barrel notes. The palette offers a medium brown sugar sweetness on a background of oak and fills your mouth with lovely spicy tingles. It reminds me of a slightly deeper, more refinded but less sweet version of the Millonario solera 15.

First hints, slight bite. But let it breathe, even if only for a few minutes, and it opens beautifully. Soft, smooth... So smooth. Vanilla, caramel, burnt toffee, maybe brown sugar. Sweet, delicious. No bite.
Nice deep copper color. Inviting aroma
Lingering taste, it just sits on the back of your tongue, begging for another sip. And make no mistake, this is a beautiful sipper.

Nice bottle, comes in a tin. Only complaint it's a plastic cork.

This might be one in the finest rums I've ever had. Do not pass up an opportunity to try it.


Very classy looking bottle with wooden cork. Deep mahogany brown color, very nice! Pour it in a sniffer and let it rest for a while and... alcohol, very mild sweetness on the nose. Waaat!? Give it a swirl and whoa! Hugely sweet and thick, syrupy , molasses, what an aroma! Taste is equally good and thick. Nice slow sipping rum!


Smager som den dufter. sød, men ikke for sød og med god eftersmag.

This is a great rum that I enjoy with a smooth cigar like an Undercrown Shade. The back-end caramel and vanilla is amazing. THE rum for me.

Ron Cartavio XO is coming in a nice bottle where all the information is graved into the bottle. I like this detail instead of the cheap labels that a lot of other rum makers are using.
In the nose this rum is sweet, a little spicy and I find notes as toffe and vanilla. The palate offers notes as, caramel, vanilla, nuts and oak. The aftertaste is long with hints of molasse and oak. This is really a fantastic rum, and for 750 DKK (100 EURO) I think it's worth every penny, and maybe more. Buy this rum if you haven't tried it before, you will not be dissapointed!!

Spicy and sweet. I enjoyed this rum at the Rum Festival in Miami this year. Fantastically fruity, with hints of vanilla and nuts.

Lidt længe siden jeg smagte den, men husker den som ganske god, lidt væk fra det helt søde jeg normalt er til.

Excellent peruvian rum, nice presentation, sublime taste and chocolate aroma. One of my bests.

This is truly a high end sipper. So smoth and well balanced. A must have in your collection.

Flot farve, dejlig blød næse. God kompleks smag. En smule krydret, jeg er vild med det.

In the glass, the color is deep, caramel-induced brown. After swirling the glass, thick legs separate after a while, as the rum is quite viscous.

The nose is rather weak, ginger bread, wet pine twigs, slight medicinal note in the back.

The taste is dominated by the added sugar, with very little oak to hold it back. Fruity notes, plums, cherries, brown sugar, very little spice, the mouth-feel is oily and viscous, yet the flavor profile lacks complexity, ending up in non-committal hints of oak tannins still muted by the overall sweetness, and short, lingering sweet burn that is however quite pleasant.

A typical example of a premiumised, Spanish-style "Ron", presumably mainly column still distillate that is moderately sweetened, flavored, which result in one-dimensional flavor profile designed to attract broad consumer base.

Sweet and smooth with a beautiful long finish. I've tried rum in nice bottles and thought... "they had to put this in a nice bottle to justify the price."


Was looking for some Peruvian rum when I was leaving the country last week but was disappointed that they did not have the millionario at the duty free shop. They were however running a huge sale on this bottle So I bought 3 of them at around 45 bucks each intending to give them as holiday gifts because of the beautiful packaging. Well that's not going to happen!

When I opened it and tried the 1st sip I was quite disappointed by the bite which I found overwhelmed the flavors. So much so I put the glass aside and forgot about it. Some time later I saw the glass and what a different experience. The nose totally opened up with rich caramel and banana with a wonderful smoothness and lingering flavor. Beautiful spirit.

Sweet and mellow, with a Big palate of dried fruits

Su sabor distinto y su cuerpo deslumbrante nos brinda un experiencia exquisita, con un sabor dulce como la miel y aromas tan placenteros como la vainilla.
Un ron para disfrutarlo solo o en cocktel, y por supuesto siempre apto para el mejor auditorio.

Aromen von Toffee, Schokolade, Gewürzen sowie süssliche Fruchtnoten.

It is very sweet, but quite strong alcoholic flavour. Maybe it needs more time to breathe...

En super lækker Rom, som er utrolig dejlig og blød og rund med fin eftersmag. Kan absolut anbefales.
