Recommendable to most
Cleverly branded By M&S but clearly a plantation rum. Most beautiful taste for the money ....caramel, banana, toffee and vanilla super smooth and very moorish.
Brought back to Oz from my trip back to the UK , along with 5 other rums you cant buy here. The info on the bottle sounds alot like Plantation 20 XO so for a measly 20 quid on special at Marks & Sparks it was worth a go..
Definitely more astrigent upon opening so I left it in the glass for a good 15 mins. Eventually I found the fruity aroma of the Plantation and even the toasted coconut..
It sipped ok but an ice cube helped mellow this youngish ? spirit.
Bit of a bite and the caramel and sugar on the label was duly noted ! Overall a very good rum but a bit short on the "original"
If living in the UK buy yourself a bottle , great taste , great value.
£24 and it is yours. They even had 20 cc bottles if you are unsure at a pro rate price.
This a cognac like for sipping neat or a few drops of whatever to pull out more flavour. No bite and not sweet.
Gift with confidence.
What a star purchase, was online purchasing the M&S 10yr Guyanese single estate and this was on special at under £20 yes less than £20 a bottle and it's worth so much more. Read the other reviews and glad I did as and I have to agree it's is really good value. Yes it had added sugar and colour, which it states on the label, it's honest but equally bloody good. Smooth, rich, lovely nose, stands on its own against rums that are £10 plus more expensive. Fine (even good) as a sipping rum, but fab as a mixing rum with ginger ale and a slice of lime.
Buy a bottle take a chance, I usually prefer sweet notes on my rums (El Dorado, Abuelo, Pampero, Plantation etc) and this one is much of that ilk. Am now off to see if its still on special, if not still only £24 a bottle.
I find the aroma of this rum misleading as it smells very dull. Upon tasting however it explodes in the mouth with an initial sweet vanilla and caramel hit. The rum then makes the tongue and tonsils tingle before leaving you with a warm liquorice after taste. I'm not an expert but the flavours in rums always seem better when sipped neat and at room temp rather than over ice which can make the rum rather harsh. Love this and the price is very reasonable.
