Ron Cartavio XO has strong notes of caramel, vanilla and oak spice

Peru may not be known for its rum, but Ron Cartavio is looking to change that.

In production since 1929, the distillery uses Peruvian sugarcane molasses and produces its rum using continuous column stills and copper pots. After distillation, the rum undergoes the unique solera aging process, in which it's matured in three different barrels: American, French and Slovenian oak casks. Ron Carvatio XO is a blend of rums between 10 and 30 years old. On the nose, it has an overall creamy and sweet aroma, with strong notes of caramel, vanilla and oak spice. The spice notes continue on the tongue, along with flavors of ginger, leather and tobacco, rounded out by a smooth and rich finish. Ron Cartavio XO is a complex and flavorful rum that should be appreciated neat.
