This rum is like paying Mercedes prices for a Volkswagon... It's a very good Anjeo but for that price there is much better out there.

Full bodied, oily, allmond like aroma and taste, light sweet. Well ballanced rum, one of my all time favourites.

One of the latest addition in the Plantation portfolio, the updated version is actually a blend of rums from neighbouring Guatemala and Belize. Guatemala at least produces their rums using fermented sugar cane honey (evaporated sugar cane juice) instead of the traditional molasses. Guatemala also uses a mix of bourbon and sherry cask for aging in their own solera system. This makes it quite difficult to put an age statement on the label, and was confirmed by the Ferrand/ Plantation brand ambassador at a tasting event last November.
I went through a bottle of Gran Anejo with some of my friends last summer paring it with some nice cuban cigars. Montecristo no2 to be precise. Honestly the cigar was a bit overpowering, and maybe a lighter Hoyo de Monterrey would be a better match. Even then, the rum was delicious, with some dark chocolate aromas and flavours, and a distinctive licorice finish.
I bought another bottle :)

Sweet scent and sweet taste as well, that is followed by sharp spiciness and pungent hay aftertaste.

Whiskey aficionados might like it.

Plantation Gran Anejo Guatemala was such a hard bottle to find in the US that it took me over 4 years of searching and scouring and finally a bottle emerged from Germany, so I had to grab one. Plantation Gran Anejo Guatemala offers a lot of exciting flavors and very clear but sweet flavors like raisins, it hardly has any burn at the end, but a very long and lingering sweet taste in your mouth. Having a back-to-back taste testing with the Plantation Gran Anejo Guatemala versus the Plantation Gran Anejo Guatemala & Belize and you will not find even the smallest amount of difference. They must be a different bottling year for the exact same rum. Plantation Gran Anejo Guatemala is still a long distance away from the amazing Barbados XO 20th Anniversary rum, but comes as a good second best Plantation rum in my books.

Here's my top 30 list:
1. Ron Tres Loco de Vinos from Vinoble Skanderborg
2. Ron Esclavo XO Cask Strength
3. Legendario Gran Reserva 15y
4. Cubaney Centenario 25-30y
5. Companero Panama
6. Ron Esclavo XO
7. Ron Millonario XO and 15y
8. Plantation Barbados XO 20th Anniversary
9. El Dorado 25y
10. Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva and Single Vintage
11. Presidente Marti 23y and 19y
12. Cubaney 18y
13. Pusser's 15y
14. Black Tot
15. El Pasador de Oro XO
16. Bavaro Black Ultra Premium
17. Punta Cana Esplendido
18. Edmundo Dantes 15y
19. Pampero Aniversario
20. Bacoo 12y
21. Ron Esclavo 15y and 12y
22. El Pasador de Oro Gran Reserva
23. Brugal Leyenda
24. Exquisito 1990 and 1995
25. Koloa Kaua'i Coconut
26. Plantation Gran Anejo Guatemala & Belize
27. Unhiq XO
28. Ron Hero 21y Solera
29. Punta Cana XOX
30. Ron Cartavio XO

This Rum is so beautifully balanced in alcohol, body and natural sweetness with perfect notes of wood, and slight notes of chocolate and plums. A lovely piece of distilling work, satisfying the sipping afficionado with a taste for balanced, mild spirits.
A very pleasant sipping experience. Relaxing, soft. Beautiful work.

En af de beste rom jeg kender til prisen. Go at nyde med ikke rom kender.

Posted almost 6 years ago by Norup from Denmark with 60 ratings

Til prisen har den rigtig meget at byde på. Skøn rom, en blanding af frugt og sprit, uden for meget kunstig sødme.

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!

Can immediately tell this is another quality Plantation rum. Nice oak, tobacco and a bit of licorice in the finish.

I needed a bottle for my birthday toast with coworkers. I knew few of them like rums drier and really liked the "classic" Plantation and few like sweet rums. This kind of promised both. And delivered. I was generally surprised at how good it is. It's smooth, with kind warm burn aftertaste, light fresh floral body but with toffee and coffee tones. Not too sweet, not too dry, the taste is great, the smell is great. I expected it to be fine, but double ageing did a hell of the job...

The one I am drinking is Guatemala and Belize and is 42%..................... and I love it !

Full of lovely flavours, fruity, smooth and with a pleasant afterburn. Great quality stuff and at a reasonable price.

Сначала немного попахивает спиртом. Надо дать продышаться. Вкус приятный, мягкий, сладковатый, чуть с дымком. Послевкусие не длинное. Пить лучше в чистом виде, не разбавляя.
Простоват - это напиток не праздничный, а на каждый день, после ужина.

I like this better than both of the Appleton estate 12 & 21 yr rums, but still I find this as a middle of the road rum, not very smooth not very refined. I compared this side-by-side with flor de Cana 18 year and the 18 year was much better.

One of my favourites, well balanced, nice After taste. Not the most strong flavour, gentle, light & nice aroma

Good sipper with quite a woody after taste. Better than Bacardi 8 in this price range.

Helles Bernstein mit Kupferreflektionen im Glas.
In der Nase etwas Holz, Harz und Karamell.
Im Gaumen kommt zuerst die typische Plantation Süsse und lullt die Zunge ein. Karamell, etwas Vanille, ein paar tropische Früchte, zarte Holznoten und einige Gewürze geben ein schönes Mundgefühl.
Im Abgang schön lang, wie ein Karamell-Sahne-Bonbon.
Ein süffiger Rum für den schmalen Geldbeutel, ohne Ansprüche, für Einsteiger und Süss-Rum Liebhaber.

Light amber with copper reflections in the glass.
In the nose some wood, resin and caramel.
On the palate the typical Plantation sweetness comes first and lulls the tongue. Caramel, some vanilla, a few tropical fruits, tender wood notes and some spices give a nice mouthfeel.
In the finish nicely long, like a caramel cream candy.
A pleasant rum for the small purse, without claims, for beginners and sweet rum lovers.

Facile à boire. Pas trop sucré avec un goût d'amandes.

Posted almost 2 years ago by firsthuman from Germany with 25 ratings

Decent bottle, boring colour. A little too much alcohol in nose and mouth. However, a good value. Okay for sipping, maybe better for mixing... quite similar to the Plantation 5y Barbados, but slightly more caramel in the nose...

Bon produit, accessible à des amateurs débutant dans le rhum, bouteille à posséder pour faire plaisir à un ami de passage
