Complexity of aged rum, perfect balance of tastes plus coconut flavor. Especially coconut is the taste that makes this rum so different. For me nr. 1.

noch immer fester Bestandteil meiner Sammlung.

Ein sehr komplexer Tropfen, welcher bei jedem weiteren Genuss neue Facetten aufzeigt und ein wirklicher Genuss ist. Der Rum ist ein Blend und beinhaltet immer Rum mit einem Mindestalter von 12 Jahren. Nur bereits für diese Tatsache ist dieser Preis unschlagbar! Nun zum Tasting:

Schon beim Öffnen steigen einem Gerüche in die Nase, welche Begeisterung beim Kenner auslösen. Man schmeckt stark die Banane, Kokosnuss und Vanille heraus, welche wunderbar zu einem edlen Getränk vereint wurden.

Ein Muss in jeder Hausbar, ihr werdet begeistert sein!

I found this to be a delicious sipping rum but in a blind taste test it lost out to plantations own 5year. Crazy!

This has everything you could want and more.
Oak, vanilla, chocolate, coconut and sweet, but not to sweet. No discernible burn and a long lasting aftertaste after the smooth rum is swallowed.
I have the squatter/smaller bottle, and was told when I bought it to not discard it, as it was indeed a decanter.
As you can see the bottle is very nearly done, I just can’t bring myself to finish it.( a replacement will not be long in taking its place).

I would like to give it a 10, but once I do, would that mean my rum journey is over?

Surely Plantations finest?

I really wanted to love this rum, I really, really did! I've been eyeing the Plantation 20 since I first became a rum drinker a few years ago. Plantation was actually what got me on rum in the first place. Full disclosure: I am biased.
N - Just lovely! You've got that wonderful coconut, a little pineapple and cream underneath, and a pleasant vanilla to round it all out.
P - Sweet tropical fruit, all day. So, so nice, pleasant, other word for nice.
F - ...and there's the baking spice! What more could I ask for?
Honesty with myself. The baking spice comes in on the finish, but it keeps coming. It grows beyond it's bounds, and starts to overwhelm, and what started off a pleasant addition starts to become outright unpleasant. It ends up hurting you, but everything else about it great enough that you keep looking past that and come back to it. That's probably a little more insight into my personal life... I mean rum... than you wanted. But there it is.

This is one of the loveliest rooms I've ever had the pleasure of sitting it's about twice the price of my favourite El Dorado 12-year-old. But it's just a touch smoother and nicer

Smooth and nice taste (sugar) and slight fire after taste

Really smooth, nice taste but short finish. Must have rum - price/value. Ready for beginners.

Virkelig god rom til prisen. Den har alt og er både kompleks og afbalanceret. Jeg synes faktisk den kan konkurrere med min milionare og prisen gør den til et Best buy for mig.

The 20th Anniversary XO is a full bodied slip into heaven. I can die happily having drank this. Oak, caramel, coconut, cigars, and a hint of banana. Very well balanced, smooth rum. It's very reasonably priced ($85CAD where I live) for what you get. As an added bonus, the bottle is an attractive mainstay on the bar.

Sweet sipping rum with coconut tones...for me, it's up there among my favourites

A warm and gentle rum, very smooth and a rich flavour. Great at any moment!

I purchased this awhile back in the old style decanter style, then recently, bought it again thinking it was a different kind of XO20. Realized it was a different type of snazzy bottle style. I an not disappointed, in fact glad to have the exceptional rum in two very distinct bottle! Flavorful, on the sweet side and very smooth.

Once you start very hard to stop, the coconut and banana essence makes it a very affordable yet fancy drink . A must keep on the shelf when a rhum drinker

Following RumRunner's ratings I have the taller bottle with the wooden capped stopper
Wonderfully smooth with no afterburn - great drink for chilling out

Even if you've never been there I think that this rum will awaken something ancient and primordial in your soul, some forgotten memory of pineapples, coconuts, swaying trees, white sand beaches, and beautiful women laughing and smiling in the sunset. This is a very good rum, if not a great rum, that I think will appeal to a wide variety of drinkers, those who like it neat (myself) as well as mixed.

This bottles costed me almost 60 euros but so far nothing in this taste is rememberable. Notging wrong with the taste but certainly norhing special. Just drank my 3rd glass. Price/quality for me would be ok it it was 25 euros

Great aroma with a nice amber colour. Smooth initial taste that stays consistent throughout. Not bitter but a slight taste of cane and carmel I tried mine with a small ice cube.
