Guatemala Rum XO Anniversary - Rum Nation
Always a light and easy rum like the “Gran Reserva”, but made more complex, sweet and even more velvety by the additional aging for 16 months in Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez barrels.
Appearance: Mahogany. Bouquet: Delicate but rich, honeyed, with all the richness of sugar cane. Ripe dates, vanilla, chocolate, lots of raisins. Palate: A very rich and creamy caress, without alcoholic burning. Sweet, honeyed, with notes of butter pastry and lots of ripe fruit: sultanas, dates, dried plums, with notes of vanilla and cola. A touch of roasted nuts, and a refreshing hint of candied orange. Aftertaste: Sweeter and even less aggressive than in younger bottling. Warm, with the vinous and raisin notes of the sherry barrels becoming particularly evident, but also with a very noticeable note of sweet licorice.
