GUATEMALA XO

GUATEMALA XO

20th Anniversary - 40%

NAT85-Guatemala-XO-20th-Anniversary-Edition-PRINCIPALE

Appearance: Mahogany.

Nose: Delicate but rich, honeyed, with all the richness of cane sugar. Ripe dates, vanilla, chocolate, very raisiny.

Palate: A very rich and creamy caress, with no alcohol burn. Sweet, honeyed, with notes of buttery pastries. A whole array of ripe fruits: raisins, dates, dried plums, with notes of vanilla and cola. A touch of toasted nuts, and a refreshing hint of candied orange, too.

Finish: Sweeter, and even less aggressive than in the younger expression. Warm, with the winey and raisiny note of the sherry casks becoming particularly evident, but also with a very noticeable note of sweet liquorice.

Comment: Still a light easy rum like the “Gran Reserva”, but made more complex, richer, sweeter and even more velvety by the additional maturation for 16 months in Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez casks.
