Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
For just a few dollars more (isn't that a Clint Eastwood movie?) you can have some of the best I can think of - the Plantation 5 year Barbados. The best few dollars you will ever spend.
On a supermarket blend to be honest.
Pretty nasty sickly sweet. Unremarkable.
I'm afraid people are seduced by the pretty bottle. This isn't great rum I'm afraid
Bon rhum très parfumé avec une accroche virile mais pas agressive. A tester.
For drinking it is little bit to hard for me with undeveloped taste, but with a great aroma and thus I use it mainly in the kitchen. Wild boar or other game marinated in this is just heaven ...
this rum has a nice dark colour,it has quite a strong after taste which for me is no bad thing, ok as a sipper but better with coke and ice.
This rum has a great flavor going on but is not in the cask long enough to really give it the full statement that it's looking to make. This is first aged for 3-5 years with some 8 year blended in. After that is is put into ferrand Cognac casks for another year to a year and a half. This finish comes through quite strong on this one you get a lot different bolder tasting yet very smooth and not spicy at all. This one I rank down because the presence of alcohol is fairly heavy for something even just aged for about 5 years. Bold, slight oak, slight smoke.
Overall for sipping I give this an 8, for not appearing to be artificially sweetened or colored it has a little bit too much alcoholic bite/nose going on. For mixing easily a 10 but I rate my spirits on neat tasting not mixing. I tried the planters punch on the back of the bottle and it was excellent.
A classy all around rum at this excellent price point.
