This stuff smells and tastes exactly like the core of a ripe pineapple! It gives you all the flavor of the fruit without the cloying sweetness or sharp acidity. It's just soft, clean, rummy pineapple: something you never knew you wanted, but desperately need to try!
Habe den rum pur und on the rock's getrunken. Überzeugt mich beides nicht so trifft nicht 100% meinen geschmack aber in Cocktails passt er super gut. Top
This is a rum that tasted more like rum than it does Pineapple when sipping neat and no other rum is around. Its got a nice flavor to it and the aroma at first is stronger to pineapple than the actual taste of the rum. Overall a nice sipper I would not really mix this at all personally. Very smooth rum with a very slight kick and moderate finish.
Though if you drink a few pure rums first then have this, the pineapple really comes to life on the palate and its much more intense.
Sugar: 16 to 20 gpl. A rum recreated from a Dickens literary character, this rum has an interesting story regarding the origin and recipe on the labels. That uniqueness continues with the aroma and taste. At first pour you get the smell of a quality aged dark Plantation brand rum with a trace of pineapple. A bit of sweetness with some heat and lots of flavor. However in the background there is a slightly bitter trace of the macerated pineapple used in creating the rum. That stops it from being a sipping rum for me. If you are looking for a rum to mix with any drink recipe that calls for tropical juices, then this is the one to use! It makes a great Pina Colada. It's worth a try.
Bought it as a first real rum (let's leave the "rum like" stuff back on the shelf) to accompany cigars and it did not disappoint. A good backstory pretty much always get's me and get's the fantasy going and with this rum, Plantation achieved just that. The Pineaapple takes you to the warmth of the Caribbean, perfect for an autumn escape. I like it with two ice cubes but it works wonders in a cocktail as as well (should try and mix it with coconut), it's sweet but not overpowering. Would recommend and will buy again!
Plantation is a relatively well-known rum brand, especially in connection with their most famous rum, Plantation XO 20th Anniversary. When I saw in the title that the rum was pineapple flavored, I imagined it would be some sweet elixir, but it was far from it.
Rum has an alcohol content of 40%. It was created by cutting pineapple into raw rum, which was macerated in it for 3 months, and this mixture was distilled again. So this is an unaged rum.
Bottle: Classic Plantation, but this time without a weaving.
Aroma: A strong alcoholic fruity scent that smells of non sweet pineapple, unripe bananas and fresh ginger.
Taste: At first, it burns quite on the palate and on the tongue. The taste of rum itself is less strong - so watery. The taste is tropical fruit, especially unripe pineapple and unripe bananas, as well as spices such as cloves, ginger and vanilla. At the end of the taste, you can smell a little smoky to bitterness.
Aftertaste: Short to medium.
Rum is not bad, but the taste is very specific and quite dry. I do not see it to buy a whole bottle.
