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.

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.


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!

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.


Love it smooth and easy to drink s must have for rum lover.

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.

Extrymly smooth, could have s better aftertaste though

Great in an old fashioned smooth with a nice finish.

Fantastisk smak. Fyllig färg, mycket dofter. Vanilj, karamell toffee men nånting gör ändå att den hälften så dyra diplomatico reserva exclusiva springer cirklar runt den här. Kanske är det längden på eftersmaken?

Ja men då så var det dags att öppna denna på min 26-årsdag 😄 oljig i glaset, doftar lite kokos först, sen när man värmer upp den i handen kommer tropisk frukt, lite russin kanske, banan. Smaken, oj den är mjuk och rund, inget som sticker någonstans. Lägger sig i gommen och långt bak på tungan. Först känner man tropisk frukt, vanilj och arrak sen kommer russin ganska tydligt, sen efter en stund känner man kakao, choklad. Mycket mjuk och rund, gillas skarpt! En av de bättre faktiskt. Fin färg. Men något fattas ändå tror jag? Lite platt ändå i eftersmaken. Svag 8/10


Great from start to finish. Robust and smooth with full flavor. Great choice for a neat sipper.

Deosebit atât prin prezentare cât și ca arome. Foarte fin, cu un aftertaste nu foarte lung dar suficient de aromat. Binențeles only on the rocks!

Deep amber colour and a good nose with alcohol and age. The Solera process shows in this rum with the complex tastes and the burn of a younger rum. A good long finish with notes of caramel and wood. I was going to buy another because of the rating and availability but was slightly disappointed for $80can.

Amazing rum very good rum for me very nice.One of my best.

Des qu'on le met en bouche, le gout licoreux rempli completement la bouche, delicieux

Duft af vanilie og smag af karamel og mange andre skønne noter, som giver en lang og behagelig eftersmag. Virkelig en af mine favoritter. Jeg kan godt forstå, at den har vundet prisen 2 gange for verdens bedste rom.

Lækker rom. Dejlig afbalanceret. Mangler lidt mere smag for at blive en 10’er. Men den er tæt ved.
