Ron Cartavio XO Rum
Ron Cartavio // Peru
The Ron Cartavio distillery was founded in 1929 and nationalized by the Peruvian government in 1968. The X0, distilled in a combination of copper pot and column stills, is a blend of rums with a weighted age of 18 years in Slovenian and other oak. It's a brilliant, rosy topaz in color with voluptuous legs.
Aged RumRum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".

"Sweet but not cloying aromas of butterscotch and Bananas Foster, all dusted with traces of baking spice, characterize the seductive nose. Raisins and dried apricots join the parade on the palate, along with additional brown sugar, hazelnuts, vanilla bean and a hint of mocha. Some spicy wood emerges on the gratifyingly long finish. "
