Tasty, but not quite great
La plupart du temps avec plantation, on retrouve une certaine complexité et ici c'est ce qu on remarque. On est rarement déçu. Il goute la vanille le bourbon et le caramel. Ce n est pas le meilleur plantation, mais pour le prix c est correct.
Geschmacksvoll, fruchtig, süß, aber nicht lieblich. Alkoholgeschmack gleich stark vertreten, wie die süß-fruchtigen Aromen.
I like the smell, some caramel notes. Flavor wise is OK for sipping again caramel can be perceived, banana and some orange hints.
Where it really shines is for mixing. Cuba Libre, Old Fashioned rum, you named.
This was my first rum to start experiencing the world of rums. Didn't really like the taste at first but when I got to the end of my 0,7 litre bottle (consumed in about a month not at once :D) my tongue got used to it. Really hard to rate as this was my first rum so I didn't really have a good comparison.
Aroma and flavor are both muted. Soft molasses, slightly medicinal. Soft sweetness. Did a decent job as a mixer in a cocktail but it is the least impressive member of the Plantation family that I've had so far. Respectible as a mixer. Not recommended as a sipper at all. Affordable but there are better rums in this price range that are both much better sippers and much more flavorful in cocktails. I give a generous 6 but more of a 5.5.
This stuff tastes like it is of much higher proof than it actually is, so if that's your game this one for you. Very affordable and I like it quite a bit as a "Dark & Stormy". The ginger ale cools it off and allows for the back flavors to come out. I got floral and orange flavors while my buddy said he got almonds and caramel, go ?
Not sure if I’m disappointed or not.
Not as dark in the glass as expected, with plenty going on in the aromas.
Smooth enough with little if any burn, and what really lets it down is the almost total lack of aftertaste.
Not tried it as a mixer yet, but who knows, it might come into its own then.
Probably the only Plantation rum that has in some way disappointed.
