First, a disclaimer - I'm not a big fan of flavored rums, and I'm also not a big fan of pineapple. But this rum surprised me.
The pineapple is light, not overpowering, and the base rum flavor is nice, with sugarcane, molasses, some pineapple, spice, and maybe even a light touch of bourbon.
It's one of my favorite flavored rums (thought the Clement Creole Shrubb is my all time favorite as of this review). Well worth buying, especially if you like flavored rums!
Over the past 15 years I have tried well over 400 aged rums and unfortunately Plantation Pineapple has a strong alcohol smell to it, over powering artificial pineapple flavor and a very strong afterburn. This is super disappointing since I very much have enjoyed a lot of spectacular rums from Plantation, but I would not even mix the Pineapple Plantation with rum-and-coke, it's that bad.
The top 10 worst rums I have ever tried:
1. Barbancourt 4y / 8y / 15y
2. Bounty Dark Rum from Fiji
3. Stroh 40 / 80
4. Plantation Pineapple Stiggin's Fancy
5. Villa Rica 23y
6. Mocambo 15y / 20y
7. Captain Morgan different variations
8. Don Papa 10y / 15y
9. Bacardi flavored "rums", all of them
10. Kraken rums
I'm really not into the 'tuti fruti' rums but ordered this by mistake. It happens. Actually under the right circumstances as a a frozen concoction of some nature, this is not bad as I thought it might be the Pineapple burst topped on the smooth caramel flavor making it quite interesting.
Beautiful coppery color with a well-balanced rum between exotic fruits, pineapple head followed by banana and alcohol that remains very discreet back. In the mouth, one is on the same notes with an average and sweet final. Another beautiful achievement of Plantation and I agree with some comment : Easy to sip your way through half a bottle before you realize that you only have half a bottle left....
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.
super stuff if you're into fruity rum. Very well balanced without the overwhelming pineapple taste you might expect! Definitely recommended.
I nice product that's tasty and very well made, but to me perhaps more fun the gastronomically appealing. In the spiced category, this definitely feel like a more mature product. The nose is a mix of sweet ripe pineapple juice and slightly funky but rounded and aromatic Jamaican rum notes. The palette presents the same character as the nose, and the pineapple comes through impressively natural. It presents a nice curvy body but is also fairly sweet. Quality product that can be had both neat or mixed, but I would probably always choose a "regular" rum over this.
