Rum Nation Guatemala XO 20th Anniversary Decanter is a molasses rum produced by Industrias Licoreras de Guatemala. This beautiful decanter celebrates Rum Nation's 20th anniversary of discovering the rums of the world.
Distilled in columns, it was aged for 4 years in the tropical climate of Guatemala, in the Rio Hondo region. It then travelled to Italy for a further 16 months of maturation. This was done in old Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez sherry casks. This second maturation in one of Italy's cool and mountainous regions, called continental, helps obtain and combine notes of wine and fresh fruit with the natural and fragrant sweetness of vanilla and raisins, taking its complexity to another level.
Nose: Delicate but rich, honeyed, with all the richness of cane sugar. Ripe dates, vanilla, chocolate, very raisiny.
Palate: A very rich and creamy caress, with no alcohol burn. Sweet, honeyed, with notes of buttery pastries. A whole array of ripe fruits: raisins, dates, dried plums, with notes of vanilla and cola. A touch of toasted nuts, and a refreshing hint of candied orange, too.
Finish: Sweeter, and even less aggressive than in the younger expression. Warm, with the winey and raisiny note of the sherry casks becoming particularly evident, but also with a very noticeable note of sweet liquorice. 40% ABV.
