Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
In the interest of full disclosure I have to admit Plantation is definitely one of my favorite brands of rum. I have really liked, by varying degrees, each of the rums I've sampled thus far from them. I wish I had a source for more of the different kinds they produce.
First thing I noticed is the pleasant aroma lacking any noticeable sting. The taste is sweet with hints of vanilla, molasses, and butterscotch along with a butteriness coating the tongue. The sweetness isn't overpowering and doesn't seem to be an additive like some other rums. Not much of a burn. Rather a mild warmth. There is a presence of oak to the flavor but not a harsh one. This is a smooth rum and would make for a good sipping rum.
I like this better than the Panama I tried a few months ago (and compared again tonight) - but not as good as the Barbados I bought more recently. I will continue to try these as I seem to like much of the Plantation inventory . . . so far. I wish they were easier to find, and just a little cheaper.
short fermentation and a column still make this a very clean rum with strong Woody flavours.
I believe this is aged twice wich explains the wide range of oak flavours one tastes consuming this Trinidad delight
A good value rum. It ain't to demanding, but not boring either. The nose is fruity and fresh with sugar cane and orange. The palate is quite sweet, with the same notes found in the nose and the addition og a slight hint of oak in the finish. A straight up nice and easy going sipper for a hot summerday (picture is wrong btw)
Alkohol: 40 %
Aroma: Sladce štiplavá, až větrová vůně. Med, včelí plástve, cukrová vata, pak svěží travnatost, která jde až do mentolu. Možná takhle voní cukrová třtina, když ji useknete? (89 b)
Chuť: V chuti se krásně ukáže to, na co vás naladily čichové buňky při přivonění. Medově nasládlý, pikantně kořenitý rum, kde se objeví i nějaké bylinky, které mi trochu evokují Becherovku. V dochuti pak i dřevo. (87 b)
Shrnutí: Opět ochutnán u josého na degustaci, rovnou jsem si ho taky objednal. Tahle ročníková řada Plantation mi hodně sedí.
I like the Plantation I have tested so far! they are en between a good cognac and a good rum in my opinion, the explanation is probably the storage in cognac barrels in France for some years except storage in Trinidad.
