Похоже, я всё-таки не фанат Plantation. Выдержка и довыдержка в коньячных и бурбоновых бочках, а также сложный бленд ромов разных стран, конечно, придаёт особую специфику и характер, но, при этом, напиток становится больше похож не на ром, а на какую-то экзотическую настойку. Вкус мягкий, насыщенный и благородный, чувствуется, что это качественный серьёзный напиток, но фруктово-коньячный компонент, доминирующий во вкусе и послевкусии, лично мне не заходит.
It looks like I'm not a Plantation fan after all. Ageing (basic and additional) in bourbon and cognac casks as well as complex blend of rums from various countries evidently gives a very special character to this drink, but the drink itselfs looks (tastes and smells) not like rum, but rather like some exotic liqueur. Taste is smooth, rich and noble, it is really a drink of high quality, but its fruity and cognac-like components that dominate taste and aftertaste are just not my cum of tea (rum).
Such a pleasent sipper. A single ice cube, a more than generous shot every half hour and the afternoon drifts by. Sweet but not too sweet. Cognac like. Worth the price and easily available.
This Plantation rum has disappointed me a little bit. I had already tried other Plantation Rums and had promised me more. When I hold my nose over the glass I notice an alcoholic sharpness. This rum has a pleasant sweetness with actually quite nice vanilla and caramel notes, but they don't last very long. In the finish this rum is clearly too strong for me. Of course, it has 42% alcohol, but I had hoped for more mildness. The very pleasant taste is unfortunately quickly covered by an alcoholic sharpness. However, mixed with Cola, e.g. as Cuba Libre, it tastes quite well.
Finally managed to find some Plantation Rum in South Africa!!! Well worth the search! Notes of dark brown (burnt) sugar, toffee and the Caribbean ocean!
