XM 5 Year Old D'aguiar's Rum Reviews
Tasting Notes by Tim F
Nose: Candied orange peel, brown sugar, buttery oak. Crystallised ginger, creamy, toasty vanilla and sugared almonds. Quite fruity, with baked banana, raisins and hints of blackcurrant jelly developing.
Palate: Medium-bodied. More than a hint of spices (clove, dried ginger), apple pie, raisins and plenty of citrus (grapefruit, orange) underpinned by the sweet vanilla and baked banana from the nose.
Finish: Warm and quite lasting, with lively spices and the fruit and vanilla fading slowly.
Comment: An exuberant golden Demerara, feisty without being over-bearing. Well-developed for its age. The key here is the balance - this is very easy to drink.

Received a bottle of XM 5 Year old rum from a friend. Best taste ever! I live in Canada and can't find any place that has it available. Any help would be appreciated.
Another rum of high quality from XM one of the smoothest 5 Year old rums I have tasted, great value for money, taste very close to the 10 year old.
