Careful crafting and triple-wood aging makes this Rum take flight.

Santos Dumont was a real person. In fact, he was a famous French-Brazilian aviation pioneer and one of the first people to develop a powered airplane a few years after the Wright Brothers made their first flight (though in Brazil some say he made it first). Named in honor of this local hero, Santos Dumont Spirits LLC is based in Delaware and they currently have one offering — Santos Dumont XO Rum.

Santos Dumont XO is relatively new to market, but we like what we taste. In Cognac the term “XO” is defined by law to mean that the youngest spirit in the bottle is at least ten years old. In the world of Rum the term is more fluid, but most of the time fine Rums with the XO designation are a minimum of six years old — so let’s go with that. Importantly, Santos Dumont XO is triple-casked in ex-Bourbon, Pedro Ximenez, and Port Wine barrels. This is all good stuff and it adds substantial complexity and a delicate aroma that makes this Rum take flight. Each bottle is hand numbered and identifies the specific final cask it was drawn from.

Rum used to be accepted as form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.

Ratings & Reviews
Jill
Jill,
Really enjoyed this rum. Very pleasant, sweet smell. Full, smooth flavor thanks to aging. Would have again in a heartbeat.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is a very good, rich, aged Rum with an aromatic & floral birth; while a rich life leads to a warm & smooth death with notes of caramel, coconut, chocolate, biscuit & a hint of cassia spiciness.

Rebekah,
Loved it. Sweet dark.
 
Alex
Alex,
Overly sweet with an interesting flavor. The flavor is unique, and seems like something I might like one moment and dislike on another later tasting. Agree with the other review that compared it to overripe bananas, but I also taste a tiny hint of peat with vanilla after the sip.
 
Roy
Roy,
I like it and it’s easy to sip. A little heavy on the caramel, but real easy on the finish.
 
Steve
Steve,
Lots of interesting notes that were distinct. Overall though I found it unpleasant—a bit like overripe bananas or other rotting fruit.
 
Deja
Deja,
Very sweet.

Gregory,
Right off the bat this echos a classic dark rum aroma and flavor. I am a big coconut fan and immediately I can smell and taste the sweetness of the coconut. Warm finish leaves you with a great follow up. Cant wait to get my hands on a bottle....or 2.
