Review: Khukri XXX

Posted by Arctic Wolf on February 19, 2021

Khukri XXX Rum is produced by Nepal Distilleries Private Limited who began to produce spirit in Kathmandu Nepal in 1959. In the beginning, Khuri began distilling alcohol using traditional pot stills from the late 1800s (Those initial pot stills are now on display in the distillery). However the company has modernized production and now uses a 3 column distillation and they have replaced they use of oak barrel aging with the use of special wooden oak vats for maturation of their molasses based distillate.

Reading through the website I came to the conclusion that the rums produced are of no single age. The maturation vats appear to be emptied only partially each time. This leaves a percentage of rum behind to age further until the next time the vat is emptied partially again. Apparently the youngest rum in any particular batch may be as young as 8 months old, while the oldest rum in the blend might have been in the vat when the process was started many years ago.

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: Khukri XXX

” … The entry brings wood and baking spices forward and unfortunately a mild but noticeable bite of alcohol astringency. I can taste vanilla, cinnamon and dark brown sugar, oak spice and molasses which is followed by treacle, oak spice, orange peel, cola, cocoa and walnut …”

Please enjoy my review!

Chimo!

    Excellent! Is there a place in town that sells this?

    Also, have you thought about doing a review of Machuca – Dominican spirit (rum like) but produced/distributed by an Edmonton company. I would very much be interested in what you’d have to say about it.
