XM VXO Rum 7 Year Old Reviews
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.
Top price/quality ratio! Needs nothing to enhance it, made for sipping
Rum'n'raisin ice cream in a glass. Try mixing it with Ginger Beer - divine!
An excellent honest rum - the fruit cake reference is very close to the mark. Well worth buying.
An excellent rum for the price. Very smooth and lots of flavour.
This rum is fantastic. Great smooth sweet taste and at £21 its a real bargain. I would recommend this to any rum fan.
Great rum for this price, love it, so mellow no bitter taste here!!!
Smooth, well rounded. Warmly spiced without any sour bite. Eminently sippable.
