XM VXO Rum 7 Year Old
70cl / 40%
VXO is an excellent 7yo Golden Demerara rum from Guyana, bottled by Banks DIH. We were very impressed with this when we first tasted it at Rumfest, and we still love it - probably the best value rum of its kind.

Tasting Notes by Simon Difford (CLASS Magazine)

Rich bronze with green tinges. A nose of bready/hot cross buns/raisiny fruit cake with plum jam, cream soda and over-ripe banana. The rich, slightly sweet, very fruity, medium bodied palate features caramel, brandy butter, crème brulee, milk chocolate,
treacle and tinned pineapples. The lingering finish sees the full-on flavour experience
continue with Christmas pudding served with rum and raisin ice cream, marmalade and
cloves. Fabulous value for money.

Score: 5/5 (Outstanding / Exceptional)

Tasting Notes by Tim F

Nose: Toffee, vanilla (pod & ice cream), over-ripe banana, raisiny fruit cake.

Palate: Medium-bodied, with chocolate orange, caramel, ginger snaps, banana, the juice from tinned pineapples, and the fruit cake from the nose.  Very pure sugar character.

Finish:  Natural caramel, sugary milky coffee, sweet ginger.  The fruit cake flavours linger, with clove, rum 'n' raisin ice cream, marmalade.

Comment:  A deliciously fruity rum, sweet without ever becoming cloying.

A very well priced for a rum that tastes so good, no sharp or bitter taste at any point and exceedingly easy to enjoy.

I have tried many a rum but value for money this is by far the best. Its smoothness is what really stands out, with flavours of caramel, banana and vanill brulee.

Rum'n'raisin ice cream in a glass. Try mixing it with Ginger Beer - divine!
