#Top100Rums of 2017: #24 El Pasador de oro XO Rum

Posted by Arctic Wolf on November 27, 2017

El Pasador de oro XO is a new rum brand brought into Western Canada by Charton Hobbs. The rum is produced by Les Bienheureux S.A.S. (in Paris France) and (according to the information sheets given to me) is a blend ‘grand XO’ Guatemala rums aged from 6 to 15 years in oak barrels at selected Guatemalan distilleries. The rum undergoes a final aging process in France where the spirit is rested in used cognac barrels in the cellars of Les Bienheureux.

Here is a link to the review for the Rum Howler #24 Rum of 2017:

Review: El Pasador de oro XO Rum

“… The mouthfeel is creamy and I begin to notice fine oak spice unraveling from the sweetness and heating my palate. Orange marmalade, caramel toffee, oak and baking spices (vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg) are all melded together into a very nice rum elixir which is not only easy to sip, it is also very yummy. Other flavour impressions drift into the menagerie of flavour, both milk and bitter chocolate, walnuts and pecans, and perhaps a smattering of Oolong tea and sweet cola, and a ribbon of frangipani …”
