Afrohead XO 15 Year Old Rum
Benjamin,
Heavy tobacco and leather notes if you like that. The sweeter caramel and mango hints were lost on me.

Elizabeth,
Tried it on a large rock. It's a very good flavor, good for sipping. A sniff brings out tobacco and leather scents, as another reviewer mentioned which I thought was odd but sure enough, you can smell it. There is an end sweetness but I couldn't make it out. It is a nice rum. I definitely want this for my bar.

Jason,
If you like rich molasses (which I do), then this is the rum for you. I'm not a huge rum guy, but this is drinkable neat. Warm sweetness dominates with a hint of banana on the back end. The caramel is not as dominant as the profile says. It is there up front but can be missed in the strong molasses note.

Daniel,
Solid rum. Definitely get the toffee/caramel but not so much banana. Heat is there but not unpleasant. The right amount of sweet for my tastes.

Not worth the hype.

Michael,
A slightly sweeter rum. I don’t taste majority of the flavor profile but it’s quite enjoyable
Afrohead XO 15 Year Old Rum
MIGUEL,
This is how rum is supposed to taste. Smooth and easy to drink with hints of wooden barrels. Sweet but not too sweet and no bad after taste like you get with cheaper bottles. Aged is the way to go and this is my new go to rum!

Kelli,
Definitely tasted the caramel, and a fruitiness that made this one a little milder. Good on its own, and think it would do well in daiquiris or other fruit drinks.

Samantha,
This rum was smooth and had a sweet fruit taste.

John,
Really liked the bourbon notes and the balanced contrast between the fruit and leather and tobacco
Afrohead 7 Year Old Original Rum
Benjamin,
I think this is my favorite rum. I’ve been a whiskey guy for a while now, but I’ve recently gotten into rum. This is a very “whiskey” rum. The Smokey flavor is so nice, yet sweet enough to sip on and not hurt too bad. The 12 year is amazing, and I highly recommend as well. But this one is wonderful, especially for its price.

This one had a good aroma, initial taste and sipping, but the finish was quite dry
Afrohead XO 15 Year Old Rum
Michael,
Love the tobacco and leather elements, deep complex flavors develop from the first sip and reveal themselves over a long finish. Lime notes toward the end. Very different. Looking forward to buying a bottle.

Arthur,
Nice caramel and oak but not outstanding-good sipping rum but nothing super special. However, I’m now curious what the XO afrohead is like...

love the leather smell
Afrohead XO 15 Year Old Rum
Antti,
It is a very good, intense, Dark Rum with a complex birth; while a crisp & warming life; that leads to a very long death with notes of lime, ginger, spiced toffee & espresso.

Ola,
Great overall rum, not overwhelming in any area. Very well-balanced and a solid sipping choice. Good price point to introduce someone to sipping rums.
Afrohead XO 15 Year Old Rum
Lindsey,
Pretty good. A little over-leathery and some spice and smoke that overpowers the aftertaste. Still, a pretty good sipper. Rocks made it open up a bit but also made it a little too shallow. Did get rid of the overpowering spice and leather notes though.

Lisa,
I never thought I would ever have a "sipping rum", but this changed my mind. Easy sipping like a good Scotch. Very good.

Probably the best tipple to touch my toungue was XO I’m sure they have made the best Rum on the planet.

Nelo,
strong to start but gets more complex and flavorful over time. The finish is amazing.
Afrohead XO 15 Year Old Rum
Sarah,
A really good depth in flavor, a burn to start but goes down real smooth. Definitely get a the caramel and banana with a hint of mango but not sweet. Would pair really good with ginger ale.

Derek,
I'm not a traditional Rum connoisseur, so my palate may be different from the, so called experts. However, I do love a great Bourbon and Afrohead XO 15 year rum give me notes of vanilla, caramel, and sugar cane that out of this world. I like to follow each swallow with a small sip of water, which totally brings out the flavor notes is the remarkable distilled spirit. The fact that it's aged in Jack Daniels barrels is evident and highly appreciate. This has become one of my all time favorite drinks...neat and never mixed. I'm such a huge fan, that the regulars in my cigar lounge call me the un-official spokes person for Afrohead, what a huge compliment.

Michael,
Not much flavor - smooth but lacking in depth.

Joshua,
Undrinkable, nose wasn't unpleasant definitely could smell tropical fruits but seems more like a cover up. This rum tastes like chemical candy.
