A top-class entry-level rum from Banks DIH in Guyana, XM 5yo runs rings round other rums in this price range. Can be sipped on its own, but this is also very mixable, great in a Cuba Libre.

XM 5 Year Old D'aguiar's Rum Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • 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.
