I have'nt tried the old version so i cant really make a comparisson between the two. This new one is said to contain some rum from Jamaica and is double aged in different barrels.
Nose: warm and sweet with fudge, chocolatte and vanilla.
Mouth: first tastes like cognac, (guess its the jamaican part) then it gets spicy with a sweet lingering flavour.
Very priceworthy, i like it :-)

Medium sweetness and quite easy. Smokey taste/smell, some ripe fruit (banana). Lacking aftertaste though.

This one has the typical plantation taste: raisins. A bit strong of a strong burn at the end though. But only for a short time.

This is my go to for rum based cocktails, especially rum. Sours!

Quick burn, but fades quickly. Flavor lingers a long time. Notes of caramel and vanilla.

It’s my favorite cheap rum
It has great mix-ability for tiki cocktails or an old fashioned and it can be a cheap sipping rum.

Mein 4. Rating:
Der Plantation Original Dark ist irgendwie abgefahren im Geschmack. Aber lest selbst...

Preis: ca. 14-18€

Ganz klar ist hier die Alkoholschärfe des 3-jährigen Havana Clubs zu riechen. Aber da wo dieser keine weitere Note aufweist, überrascht der Plantation Original Dark mit...was ist das?...Banane? Es riecht irgendwie fruchtig und dennoch schwer.

Geschmack pur (Note 3):
Der Geruchseindruck setzt sich hier fort. Allerdings kommt eine gewisse Süße hinzu. Dennoch nicht pur zu genießen, da der Alkohol klar im Vordergrund steht.

Geschmack in Cola (Note 5):
Okay, schmeckt wie beschrieben. Allerdings wird die Alkoholschärfe etwas milder und der Geschmack noch süßer in der Cola. Im Prinzip ist es ein etwas süßerer 3-jähriger Havana Club mit Bananengeschmack(?). Irgendwie anders und abgefahren. Von daher 5 Punkte insgesamt.
Kommt nicht an den Pampero heran.

The special thing about Plantation Original Dark is that it is versatile and affordable. Just a little bit of funk to go with the pineapple and banana on the aroma. Good mixed, neat, or over ice.

Sweet and kind of liqueur-like on the nose. Taste is sweet and surprisingly smooth for it's price, although too short and keeps reminding me of a liqueur instead of a rum
