Tasted last November, the 2002 vintage as recently been succeeded by the 2004, which I am eager to taste.
As the brand Ambassador explained at the tasting, Central America has it's own style of rum. They use short column stills, with not too many rectification plates, and most of them have started producing rum in the last century or less, which makes their production a bit less standardized than let's say Barbados, Trinidad or Jamaica. This translates in a bigger variation between each Vintage.
This particular rum is the result of a 42 hours molasses fermentation, aged in upright standing ex-bourbon casks (aging vs "elevage") in high humidity warehouses.
Tropical notes: candied orange, clove, quince, profound. Bold and woody mouth feel with caramelized sugar and rum-raisin ice cream flavours. Gourmet finish on a ripe fruit note.

Alkohol: 42 %
Původ: Panama
Aroma: Med, cedr, kokosový ořech, vůně je "šťavnatá", hutná, prostě parádní. (91 b)
Chuť: Med, kůže, skořice, tousty, v dochuti pak cedr, elegantní dřevitost, připomínající starý nábytek, kostel. Po odpaření se v prázdné sklence cedrové dřevo zvýrazní, kdo zná vůni cedrové dýhy u doutníků, ví o co jde. (89 b)
Body: 90
Shrnutí: Byl jsem nadšen, opět ta Panama, to je styl, co mi prostě sedí.

I had the chance to test both the Plantation Panama 2002 and 2004 back-to-back and what a surprisingly big difference between these two rums. Both Plantation Panama rums have a sweet flavor on the nose, but the Panama 2002 is much dryer than the Panama 2004. Both exhibit very nice vanilla flavors and a hint of banana and no burn at the end at all. Both rums are very nice, but the Panama 2002 scores a 7, whereas the Panama 2004 is much sweeter and has a better flavor profile scoring an 8.

Soft and smooth is mentioned a few times in the reviews, could not agree more. My only other Plantation rum I have to reference it against is the 20th Anniversary XO which is bursting with toasted coconut flavor. This one is definitely more honey and bananas, attempting to not finish this bottle too quickly has been a challenge.

Nice rum but not as good as the Barbados or Nicaragua vintage in my opinion

Smell alcohol mainly.
Then taste pineapple and vanilla. Very sweet (too much) with a strong after burn. Overall I was pretty disapointed​ by this Plantation.

A bit sweet, a bit of burn. Alcohol on the nose. A little fruit in there. Not my cup of tea.

Très bon rhum à prendre sur glace en bonne compagnie. Bon goût avec une belle finale!

Not one of my favorites, tastes like refined white sugar. The most boring of the plantation rums i have tried, but works as a sipper or for drinks if you like it light and sweet.

Plantation Panama Old Reserve 2002 has a minimal hint of sweetness to it and bit of fruitiness and spiciness.

L'attaque au nez est sur l'alcool, puis les épices et le bois suivent en allonge, avec une dimension végétale assez présente.
La bouche est dans le même registre, plutôt costaud.
6 à 7

En douceur, avec des notes de banane et de vanille très prononcé. Très agréable.

My goal is to test the Plantation rum available on the market and my favorite so far is Plantation Jamaica 2001!

Posted about 5 years ago by Brion from United States with 26 ratings

not too sweet. A bit spicy on the tongue. Hints of banana and honey. Really nice to sip on the rocks.

Posted about 5 years ago by Stephan from Canada with 14 ratings

Really soft and smooth, with some notes of honey, vanilla and banana aromas and flavours. Quite a good rum, particularly for the price. 7.5/10
