Gelet op de inhoud van de fles (zie foto) alvorens deze te raten wil wel wat zeggen!
Twijfel om deze wereldkundig te maken! Mocht ik kunnen is deze rum de mijne!
De subtiele, ronde en vooral warme afdronk van deze Barbados is gewoon subliem.
Na het inschenken start het genieten. De lekkere, doch niet overmatige caramel, de vanille, kaneel en zelfs marsepein doen me alvast wegdromen. Door het wat houterige aroma is het alsof ik 'the cask' ruik waar deze Plantation zijn laatste jaren heeft in gerijpt.
De tranen die langs het glas vallen willen je een verhaal vertellen.
Eens in de mond proef je een gezonde 'vettigheid', die je graag laat rondwalsen. Toetsen van chocolade en sinaasappel nodigen mij uit nogmaals te proeven!

Een zalige zachte afdronk, waarbij het zeer moeilijk is een tweede of een derde proevertje af te slaan.

Absolutely one of my favorites.
This rum smells like heaven, warm, sweet with a hint of alcohol soaked bananas.
Tastes of much the same with some raisin and a hint of bourbon to boot.
Caramel in color.
The combo makes you want to say, “brown sugar, how come you dance so good.”

The Plantation Barbados is very smooth and sweet with a nice rum aroma, great to enjoy purely and one of the best values you get for the money. If I had to choose a rum for a beginner, I would choose this one. Mine came in a different bottle, see the image.

I've sampled rums from £3 to £150 and this is the best I've had to drink straight. Beautiful sweet coconut, zero burn, leaves you wanting more.

Haven't tried mixing it, I would imagine it is too sweet but why would you want to anyway? Superb.

This is a nice rum for those entering their rum journey. It hit a good spot on sweetness and vanilla. Beautiful bottle and overall presentation too. Wish it had been allowed to stand on its own without so much sugar though,

edited to add sugar test results- 29g
A few years later, this is undrinkably sweet.

very nice rum, resembles fine cognac but obviously the typical bajan overtones both on the nose and on the palate reveal the place of origin very quickly.

Though I like my rums a bit more powerful, this was a teeny bit too thin, not viscous and dense like Presidente 15 or El Dorado 15. This was more like a perfume.

Still very lovely bottle.

An amazing and smooth rum with only a pleasant aftertaste, this rum combines everything that’s great about rum perfectly. It’s hard to imagine any rum beating it - a bargain at even double the price

A nice sipping rum with a pretty distinctive smell when comparing it to other rums. It must be the chocolate hints that makes the smell a bit weird (in my opinion). The after taste however, is great!

Great nose, but surprising taste. A real masterpiece!

Here is a lot of cocos in the nose and body, but also caramel, banana and the spices of oak. Further, a hint of cinnamon can be found. This is an excellent taste.

Barbadian rummin all its splendor! If you like tropical sweet fruits you will love it. It makes an awesome present too!
