I was pleasantly surprised when I first sipped on this. It delivers a heavy tropical hit, not in a dos maderas luxus rich and heavy kind of way but in a fruity coconut, spice and vanilla driven way that is smooth, aromatic and lingering on the palate. A different rum for those that want.. well.. something different.

This rum is just perfect for me, its is smooth, sweet, with almost no burn. It beats appleton estate, wich is much more expensive. Really good sipping rum!!

I love Plantation Rums. And this one is by far the best one. It's smooth and sweet and it's so tasty. I could have one right now. I tried more expensive Rums, but they weren't as good as the XO.

I love Plantation Rums. This rum has great rummy taste, caramel, vanilla in body and finishes nice. For price I tend to drink Diplomatico Reserva Exclusive, Ron Zacapa Solera and Rumson's Grand Reserve more. I prefer them a bit more and half the price, but this rum is still fantastic. I also love the 5 year old Barbados version for a great deal.

A very easy and sweet rum: ripe fruit and coconut, with some vanilla. One of my favourites!

Heel lekker, zacht, prefect na een zware maaltijd. De ideale afsluiter.

A good sipper, but very sweet. Not sure this will be a go-to rum for me, but I'll dutifully finish off the bottle and keep searching for something that comes close to Pampero.

Very nice and smooth but I don't think that it's worth the high price. There are cheaper rums that are just as nice.

Ok. Der Rum ist schon etwas länger leer. Habe auch den neuen XO. Der alte war einer meiner ersten Premium Rums. Die gut ausbalancierte Süße und die milden Fassnoten haben mich zu einem Anhänger von Plantation gemacht. Hat sich immer viel ansprechender getrunken als andere vergleichbare gesüßten Rums. Habe mir deshalb auch den Nachfolger gekauft. Das einzige Mal das ich einen Rum erneut gekauft habe. Ob der Nachfolger schlechter ist oder mein Anspruch gewachsen ist kann ich nicht mehr sagen. Der alte XO war für mich lange einer der besten und ein wichtiger Bestandteil zu erkennen das hochwertige Rums nicht im Supermarkt Regal und leider nicht mal bei dem örtlichen Getränke Händler zu finden sind.

Ok. The rum has been empty for a while now. I also have the new XO. The old one was one of my first premium rums. The well-balanced sweetness and mild barrel notes have made me a follower of Plantation. I thought it was more appealing than other comparable sweet rums. That's why I bought the successor. The only time I bought a rum again. Whether the successor is worse or whether my claim has grown, I can no longer say. For some time the old XO was one of the best i knew and an important component to recognize the high-quality rums are not to be found in the supermarket shelf and unfortunately not even at the local beverage dealer.
