Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Sweetened, treated in cognac-casks...Ahh, I would never see through this anonymous nothing to identify its origin. Jamaica? Really? Nah....
Dry and bad taste. Total disappointment after all of those great Plantation rums.
Nope dont like...
Taste like a cheap rum.
Rum who has nothing to offer.
This is hogo with class - I want this rum neat in almost all situations. Its luscious, sexy, very well balanced, and with a lingering, spicy finish. The hogo doesn't hit you over the head, rather it invites you in, like the sounds of George Clinton from within some high-class bar. Recommended.
Smell is ok.
Taste is good.
Aftertaste is ok.
oak and Hugo on the nose! palate is fruity but not to sweet a lot of Hugo in Jamaican tradition. light oak with lottle to no burn going down
Pas un grand rhum, mais reste qu'il se boit bien. Assez typique de Plantation
It’s a lot of fruit in the taste. A bit strong in the first zip for me
Forte nota di tabacco, ottimo col cioccolato fondente. Notevole
Drinking it this christmas and i'll get another bottle for sure! Really nice drink!
I had a chance to try out the Plantation Jamaica 2000 and 2001 back-to-back and they both have a very weird rubber smell to them. Maybe it's the Jamaica Glue which other reviews are referring to. It is offputting to start with and the taste test does not convince me either. There is surprisingly strong burn at the end, which the Plantation Jamaica 2001 did not have at all. Jamaica 2000 deserves a 5, and it's only marginally worse than the Jamaica 2001 which scores a low 6.
A little less on the nose than le reunion but doesn’t disappoint. The sweetness hits the tongue and is very smooth. Similar characteristics of reunion to me but a little dull in comparison but definitely great. A little fruit and minimal heat combined with those candy flavors comes together well
Purchased for $34.99 at Total Wine. I have always liked Plantation rums, and consider their 20th Anniversary version as my all time favorite. So i decided to try this 2001 edition Jamaica rum. The nose is a bit different, can't put my finger on it - similar to their Original Dark - I think they call it a "funk". Not my most favorite rum, but a decent one. Adding a splash of water helps soften the finish. Would I buy it again? Probably not.
Sympa, assez fort en bouche. Pas mal avec un bon cigare
N- Full. lifted moisture of ripe tropical fruits, peach, plum, raisin and prunes. Also toffee, dark caramel, liquorice and whiff of leather, soft charred notes. Elegantly spicy, soothing mint and chocolate. Some grass develop with off tune musky brine lurking. (20/25)
P- Solid mouthfeel, medium to full body with tard pomerol peels, sweet coats of syrupy sugar with strong mineral at the tails. Get salty overtimes, which in opinion it make the taste gone a wee weird. (18/25)
F- Medium, much fruit driven with cinnamon, nutmeg and sweet spices, which is all fine, but the underlay touch of brine doesn't seems to gel with the sweetness. (18/25)
Balanced:- The disturbing touch of musky brine amplify the sweetness, and make the finishing a wee cloying (17/25)
Weighted Rate:- 73pt

A lot of spice, brown sugar, oak?
I have to admit I'm not familiar with the other Jamaican distilleries besides Appletons but to me, this is flagrant. Wheres the funk?
I feel that the distinctive syrupiness of many Plantation rums are becoming signature for me.
It's flavorfull nonetheless and maybe I have to keep trying more spirits but the impression I have is that this rum feels tainted.
Big fan of the aged Plantation line in general, this one is definitely fun to sip on but was really expecting it to wow me a bit more. Still a great price for a rum of this quality so can't complain too much.
This rum, while touting it's Jamaican origin, is much more sophisticated than anything I've tasted from Appleton.
You'll get a good note of molasses with an almost pineapple like tang. Let this one out sit out in w glass for a few minutes for a really mind blowing sip.
Pleasing gold color, good rum scent, and the flavor...mmmmm! Very strong notes of pineapple (and I love pineapple) along with banana, brown sugar and a touch of molasses. Super-smooth, not harsh at all, no alcohol burn. Body is a touch on the light side for a rum. Sweetness is perfect for me. Just sweet enough to be a treat, but not cloying or syrupy. Aftertaste is a sustain of the original flavor, which is a good thing. Great sipper.
The boutique retailer I bought it from described it as a bit funky. I thought so too at first, which I attributed to the touch of molasses flavor. Halfway through the bottle, I don't really notice it so much, to be honest. Anyway, funky or not, this one's a winner in my book. At its price point, it won't be an everyday rum for me, but more of an occasional special bottle.
In fact, I think I'm gonna pour myself an extra splash right now...
Ikke smagt. .
After I write this I look at previous reviews and my tastebuds look to differ a lot on this one. I taste a very raw alcohol taste, with cognac coming through, which I'm not a fan of. But each to their own. Certainly want to try a few more in the expansive plantation range
Lots of hay and grassiness to this one. Sugary fruits come through to even things out a bit but this one is really all about the funk.
Sehr leicht, fast dünn. Mild, kurzer Nachhall. Ich brauche mehr Aroma.
