El Pasador de Oro XO 40° : Description and customer reviews

El Pasador de Oro XO is a rum that comes from different Guatemalan distilleries.

After an initial long ageing period of 6 to 15 years in various types of casks, the rum is then imported from Guatemala to the Charente in the cellars of the French company Les Bienheureux. It is then matured in cognac casks for about 6 months before being bottled in a superb decanter. This makes El Pasador de Oro XO a perfect gift for a traditional Spanish ron lover.

Two of us wanted to write down our impressions of this much talked about "ron":

Nico's tasting note

The nose of this rum first brings out a rich, toasty and spicy woodiness. It deserves a little airing which will allow it to open up. The palette is then enriched with sweet spices, dark chocolate, dried and exotic fruits. Although classic, the whole is quite deep and complex. It then develops a certain vegetal freshness, on the cane, balanced by notes of caramel and roasting.

The palate is very soft, caramelised, slightly spicy, balanced and easy.

The finish is sweet and melting, it fades pleasantly.

Laurent's tasting note

Its colour is amber.

On the nose, it is a caramelised woodiness that strikes. After a while roasted and dried fruit notes appear, soon joined by more and more citrus aromas. A ron that offers more than the usual caramel and vanilla.

On the palate, we find this caramelised woodiness. The sugar is under control and the profile in the mouth is quite simple.

The finish has an overall sweet and slightly woody feel.

This rum is part of the Discovery pack for sweet rums that we tasted live with Marc Goubert, a specialist in Latin rums, in a video to be found on our Youtube channel.

    Very nice discovery. Lots of flavour

  11. Debourg

    Nice bottle and good product

  12. Christophe GUITTON

    Excellent aroma, very good value for money.
    A must have in your cellar to share with friends.
    The small difference in aroma with the PASADOR GRAN RESERVE
    does not justify the big difference in price.
    I advise you to stay with this range.

  13. David

    Excellent, quite dry!

  14. Ralf

    Disappointed with all the noise that is made about rum. Not much flavour, very sweet. It's a very basic rum. And the price is really out of line.

  15. pascal beaujard

    Perfect very good rum

  16. Ludovic Theobald

    Excellent, a real pleasure in the mouth 😁

  17. brunk

    Delicious rum which, for an XO, is very attractively priced


    Pleasant and very accessible rum
