The old version (Trinidad & Tobago) used to be the best among its price class in my humble opinion. Too bad it's not available anymore and instead we get a rough and almost "smokey" new Trinidad & Jamaica version which I couldn't really enjoy straight up at all.

It's all a matter of taste of course but to me a very good and cheap everyday straight up rum has died. R.I.P.

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

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€

Geruch:
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.

Decent zipping rum. Nice soft and not to sweet. Flavor doesn’t last long. Little taste of smook and oak is good and my personal favorite tastes.
There are Rums with longer after tastes therefore 7 is high.

für Cocktails prima geeignet und sollte als Standard in keiner Bar fehlen

Not a smoth easy drink for me as a rum should be. At this price level we cannot ask for more. Still better than others in same price range.
