Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Bought a case last summer while in NYC for a short vacation. A lot of expectations after following and reading on the birth, or re-birth I should say of the Pineapple Rum. And it does not disappoint.
It is like mentioned elsewhere a lot more rum forward than pineapple. The nose is classic aged rum full of spices and toffee, with at first a quite subtle pineapple rinds note. Taste is generous. Compared to the Original Dark which it it is based on, this a lot longer, with the pineapple giving it a delicious round buttery finish. And then the pineapple just grows on you. Letting it breath will unleash the pineapple in a luscious way.
My friend and I each drank a bottle while in NYC, roaming around with our flasks filled up with it. I mixes incredably well, in lattes for breakfast, and especially with the local Lime Rickey, for of safe street sipping new classic drink: The Pineapple Rickey.
Not sipping the stuff all day was the toughest thing returning back home after this short vacation. You live in the US? Consider yourself blessed and seek it. Great folks at Ferrand/ Plantation are currently concocting a new batch of 50K+ bottles so hopefully it will become more widely available. Unfortunately it won't be available here in Quebec for 2016.
Thank you Plantation!
This is awsome experiment and now the recipe has been changed it delivers . Technicaly not a full on rum as too much added stuff but an incredible different artisanal type of rum
Normally i don't like flavoured rums but this is beautiful. It's not at all oversweet or cloying.Drink it neat.
Absolutely amazing pineapple orgasm in this one. Not too juicy and not too sweet, best rum in my house.
This one is delicious! No burn, and a nice pineapple aftertaste. Nice with ginger ale, but I prefer it straight. A decent sipper.
Saw this at Binny’s and thought I’d give it a try. First sip you can taste a hint of pineapple and it is definitely not artificial tasting. Mixed well with coke and also mixed well with some orange juice.
When my friend told me to taste this one, I was not sure. I don't really like pineapples. But, wow! This rum is a solid one. Hard to find where I am but when I was able to buy one, I did.
What else to say except that you actually taste the pineapple when you drink this one. I had some hesitations when I ordered it but it was a nice move.
Very good. Very smooth, little pineapple sweet with a hint of leather.awesome.
Jó ötlet igényesen kivitelezve. Az ananász tisztán ott van de nem nyomja el az egyébként tisztességes alap rumot. Nem lett likőrös, ez egy jó rum, ami igazán különleges.
I drink it straight, on the rocks, in my morning coffee, etc. Really love the "hint of pineapple" flavor:)
Came across this Rum while in Seattle @ Bario restaurant.
Do not miss this one.. even if you dont like a bit sweeter rums... this really works. The taste of pineaple is realy there! It fits just right! Highly recomended!
I've gone through 4 bottles of this one - really interesting and different. Just enough pineapple comes though to make this memorable.
Amazing, pineapple infused reminds me of local Caribbean infused rums. Worked well with ginger beer too! Delish!
Plantation Pineapple je ananasový rum vytvořený infuzí a macerací odrůdy zralých Queen Victoria ananasů do Plantation Original Dark. Macerace probíhá po dobu 3 měsíců. Tento macerát se následně ještě jednou destiluje, čímž vznikne vynikající, velmi jemný ne moc sladký, přírodně aromatizovaný rum.
Alkohol: 40 %
Původ: Trinidad a Tobago
Aroma: Hutná vůně, přijde mi jako pečený ananas. Karamel, čokoláda, kůže, pichlavost ananasové šťávy, čerstvě upečená bábovka, rumová tresť, rumové pralinky. Velmi originální, neotřelé, přitom ale stále rumové aroma. (90 b)
Chuť: Čekal jsem rumového slaďouše, ale tento rum je jen lehce nasládlý. Pečené ovoce, dotek těžší ananasové chuti, ananas v rumu, med, opálené dřevo, karamel. (86 b)
Shrnutí: Novinka od Plantation nemohla uniknout mé pozornosti, jde o zajímavý ochucený rum, který můžu doporučit, nejde o žádné babské pití, jak by se mohlo zdát.
Had this first time in the Brig rum bar in Falmouth - so glad the barman introduced me to it as it will be with me for life or as long as it's available because it's difficult to get hold of in the UK, I had to wait almost 12 months for it to come back on sale here. The pineapple taste is so delicate and doesn't overpower the finish of this wonderful rum which I can't speak highly enough of. Perfect balance of sweetness and a touch of wood in the finish that leaves you wanting more. I really wish I had bought more of this because I know when I come to order again it won't be available.
This is both really strange and really good at the same time. Mix it with coconut cream and you have the perfect Pina colada.
Love my spiced rums, but the sweetness of this is right up my street. Great distillery too
Une saveur d'ananas bien présente sans être trop sucré ... élu meilleur rhum de l'année 2016 !!.. Merci la french touch ...
The nose of this is initially like vanilla and banana with a light essence of pineapple. The flavor of the aged rum is delicious and accented by the ingenious thought process of actually distilling it with macerated pineapple. Brilliant. Absolutely love this neat!!
A great infused rum, very fruity great aroma taste of caramel and a nice reason to start drinking classic rum cocktails again. I tried it on mai tai and many other cocktails and it tastes great.
