Always stayed away but from spiced rums in the past, but spotted this on sale in M&S, 20% off, so thought I'd give it a go. (£26:50).
Pleasantly surprised by the superb blend of rum and pineapple.
No where near as sickly as I thought it might be, a real rum flavour thats so easy to sip.
Great on the nose, lovely colour and surprisingly strong legs when swirled in the glass.
Love the way that 30 seconds after drinking it, your lips explode with the fruity tingling taste that lasts for ages.
Neat or with ice, a winner for me.
Enjoy, Graham.

At first, I did not rate this rum. The pineapple seemed a bit synthetic, more like sweets than actual pineapple. However, mixing in a dash of ting has been an absolute game changer.

De olor intenso y un balance frutal de piña y seco de final largo meloso en boca es una excelente opción para iniciar el proceso para una chica en el mundo del ron recomendado en la #larutadelron

Till en början så var det en väldigt svag arom av ananas, en underbar mörk nyans dock lite "oljig" när man snurrat runt rommen i glaset.
En aning vass när den träffar tungan, man får leta efter ananasen vid första smuttningen. Lagom sötma.
Efter några smuttningar så kommer ananasen direkt och även aromen.

En riktigt god rom att avnjuta ren.

I still dont know if I like this one or not. But probably the best flavored rum that I tried so far.

Perhaps not one for all rum purists, but this is a far cry from a spiced rum, so I would recommend trying it with an open mind.
When I first uncorked the bottle, it was like sniffing a ripe pineapple that had been soaked in smooth and fruity rum. The taste was then no surprise, with strong notes of pineapple, which doesn't overpower the rummy flavour. The combination of infusing the rum with pineapple bark and then adding distilled pineapple macerate gives a fruity flavour, whilst remaining far less sweet than you might expect ("off-dry" is probably the best descriptor), with a hint of burnt molasses and a smokey finish. I haven't tried the Plantation Original Dark that is used as the base for this, but can deduce that it must have a fairly prominent banana flavour, as this cuts through behind the pineapple. As with most rums, adding a tiny splash of water opens up the flavour a bit.
As has already been said by others, it would be very easy to sip your way through half a bottle of this neat without realising.
I haven't tried mixing it yet, but I'm going to have some with a splash of hot water and some sugar before bed tonight :)

A pleasant diversion from the most classic rum. Taste of tropical fruits and especially pineapple. Great shot after dinner.

Kdybych dával body za zajímavost dostal by 9+, pokud ale hodnotím, jak chutná mně, hezkých 8b. Chuť a aroma ananasu není otvravná, přitom dost výrazná. Dobrá změna, výstřelek mezi klasickými rumy. Po otestování několika desítek rumů již dávám přednost nedoslazovaným rumům bez zbytečných přísad, ale přesto potěšil. Rozhodně doporučuji ochutnat.

Drinking this rum was a must for me coz I love pineapples but as for spending money on rum I think I will choose different botlle next time when I will have to pick between this and something else. Like with women this rum is good material for one night stand, it was fun, but let's check something different next time;)

Final verdict: I will not buy it again

Отличный ром, вкус интересный, ананас ощущается. Нет ярко выраженной ванили свойственной большинству ромов.

Sadly nothing much going on in there, no aftertaste, just stingy ethanol and pineapple additive. Not terrible either, but you get what you see.

Plantation quality with a hint of pineapple. Nice aroma, not very sweet taste, long fruity aftertaste.

Interesting to taste, once or twice. OK taste and nose. Not my favourite, but worth of testing

good taste of pineapple, soft with nice aftertaste

Taste 7,0/10. Definitely you can taste pineapple with some sweetness & spiciness & very light oak. Just a pretty drink for tonight, which is next?

I was happily surprised when I drank this one. I drank it on the rocks, and the mixture of the smoothness and the tang from the pineapple was quite nice. Don't drink too much at once because my tongue began to get a tartness burn haha. But a great rum to enjoy!

Smells and taste like "natural" pineapple, thus, not very artificial as it could be expected. Fits in very well. Good stuff.

I think this was one of the first rum I bought. Wasn’t wild about it neat. Since then I’ve tasted other aged rum and now I think I get it. I admire the effort. It manages to hot, bitter, fruity and sweet all pretty much at once. A musty pineapple short finish. As a mixer I think it has potential. Tried it with a dight of ginger beer and didn’t think it helped. I know there’s a cocktail in there somewhere. I’ll keep trying.

Beautiful rum, sad that the bottle is almost gone. Not too sweet, still has a solid rum body, gorgeous pineapple flavour. Have made a few daiquiris with it (use about half the simple syrup you normally would) but mostly this is for sipping. A great bottle to have on the shelf to introduce someone to rum or sipping spirits in general. Tough to find where I'm at but one of the very few that I will buy the moment I see it.

Plantation pineapple rum is pretty good. I like the plantation xo better.

I'm relatively new to the rum scene having started at the sweet, inexpensive Bumbu rum and the sweet, too expensive Diplomatico Exclusiva Reserva.

As I mentioned in my Bumbu review, I'm something of a rebel at heart and I'm always looking for something that little bit different and unique. It comes as no surprise then that my sweetened taste buds and attraction to history led me to try Plantation's Pineapple Rum "Stiggin's Fancy."

And I'm glad to say it did.

I thoroughly enjoyed this bottle (it didn't last long). I now look upon it as a "rum rung" in a ladder of my experiences with the spirit. I see it as an evolution of my taste moving upwards away from the overly sweet (but flavoursome) Bumbu, to that fertile middle ground that most rums seen to inhabit, where sweetness gives way to the more subtle mix of flavours beneath.

I won't rise above my station just yet by trying to describe the nuances of this rum, but rest assured it occupies a place in my mind that is a progression from the delicious mild Bumbu and the boldly flavoured Rumbullion, in that it is less sweet and more subtly flavoured.

Recommended for the experience!

Rum je jemný a ve vůni i v chuti dominuje ananas. Nečekejte však sladké pití. Jde o další vydařený rum značky Plantation.

Dejlig frisk sommer rom, der kan nydes rent, men også er helt fantastisk som mixer,
