Now this is some good stuff
I’m Noticing a Pattern In Plantation’s Single Cask XO series...spice, lots of it. Very similar to their Barbados XO, but not as sweet. This is why I rate this bottle slightly higher. Light vanilla & molasses with alcohol on the nose. Smooth spiciness across the tongue, finishing with more vanilla across the palate. I’m glad I special ordered it.
Aroma is nice with coconut. Taste is strong but not burning with heavy coconut, chocolate and a bit of cinamon. Aftertaste is long again with coconut. This rum is like aromatic spiced type mixed with high voltage without added sugar.
So smooth, and with multiple layers of flavor. Vanilla and butterscotch, a subtle tobacco note, with a sweet profile, but not too much so as to overwhelm. Reminds me of a complex Agricole. So tasty...
Having a second taste this is so good. Full of island spices on the nose nice smooth medium lingering finish light to medium golden hue. Every Plantation is unique but if you have a chance to try or collect a rare single cask selection I highly recommend it. Will be hard to put this away into the collection, maybe just one more sip.
Having had a couple of beers with amburana, I was fascinated by the concept of a rum aged (well finished anyway) in same. It's really smooth especially for 50%, touch of burnt sugar, vanilla, and of course the amburana which is sweet and spicy all in one, giving hints of tonka, cinnamon, coconut, black pepper. Slight afterburn on the very edge of the tongue.
