Loved the smell but the taste was of sharp alcolhol, and not the sweet taste the smell had me hoping for

Apparently, rum and pineapple go very well together. The pineapple appears throughout in both the bouquet, palette and finish. It brings just the right amount of freshness and sweetness without overpowering the rum in any way. It's such a nice and easy sipper. Enjoy it straight up from the bottle. Definitely a re-buy!

Colour- light
Flavour- pineapple fruitiness
Uses- neat mixer
Its ok but not great straight it is however a very nice mixer makes a great pina colada or hurricane rum punch easy to find in M&S

Roasted pineapple aroma melds with the toffee and vanilla. Not over powering because it isn't flavored more like infused.

Ich war neugierig und habe ihn einfach mal mitgenommen. Kann man machen, muss man aber nicht. Aus meiner Sicht ähnlich unharmonisch wie ein weißer/ungereifter Rum. Ich unterstelle eine eher kurze Reifung und einen eher größeren Löffel Färbemittel. Die Ananas hat man allerdings geschmeckt. In einem etwas besser/länger gereiften Rum, könnte ich es mir gut vorstellen.

:-)
Special with that pineapple smell and taste.
Nice aftertaste.
Got it for 30$, very good :-)

I found the pineapple to be very up front and the rum a backdrop on which the pineapple sits. An interesting taste venture that's nice for some variety but not one I would regularly drink. Its sweet but not too sweet and its a very fresh true pineapple taste not a synthetic or false one.
Quite refreshing and one that would work very well in cocktails

Nagyon mutatós az üveg, rajta a rum történetével és Stiggin úrral aki egy régi Dickens könyv szereplője, szerette az ananász rumot :) ... pohárba töltve a nálunk szlovákiában kapható Tuzemsky rum ilattát hozta meg a rég elfeledett presso tea szörpét . Igazi nosztalgia ez az ital , az ananász jól el van rejtve, finom, jól csúszik, nem édes inkább gyümölcsös...kólával, jéggel vagy tisztán, bárhogy megállja a helyét !!

Lovely stuff full of flavour but not too overboard with the pineapple.

I finally got my hands on this $30 flavored rum. Don't even think of trying this one neat, since it is rather disgusting. Adding ice does little to improve it. However, it just begs to reinvent the Pina Colada. My first try at this was equal parts Plantation Pineapple, Plantation 3-star (blanco), and Coco Lopez. This made a good Pina Colada over ice, but I went one step further. Try mixing equal parts Plantation Pineapple with chilled Coco Lopez with no ice at all for a 20% ABV Pina Colada. This last combo worked best for me, but I won't be buying this one again.

There are several articles on the back that can be read with a magnifying glass. I really appreciate the research into bringing this very unique rum back for us to try, but I can also see why it fell out of fashion. One of the articles also shows how the Reverend Stiggins who favored this rum was not a really nice guy.

Wer es gerne geschmacklich etwas anders mag, der soll ihn trinken. Ich bleib bei meinem originalen Rum Geschmack.

The flavor is what I expected. The pinnaple is there but light. Its not overloaded like some spiced rums. The problem with this rum is that the base spirit taste young and sharp. The concept for this rum is good, I just wish it was aged longer. You can do better for the money.

Came across this Rum while in Seattle @ Bario restaurant.

Beautiful dark color and one of my favorites from the plantation line. Fruity smooth taste, u can really smell the pineapple essential oil. I think its also very good in cocktails, but i’m more of a sipping person.

This rum has interesting history, i recommend to read about it, cocktail historian David Wondrich was involved in developing and recovering this lost recipe from two hundred years ago so what could go wrong?
The rum is made by infusing Queen victoria pineapples in plantation original dark rum for 3 months and also macerating pineapple rind in rum to extract essential oils from the pineapple. Then the macerated mixture is distilled and then blended with the pineapple infused original dark.
The pineapple taste is natural and fresh and sweet and its in good balance to the rum, not too overpowering as in many other flavoured rums.
You can still taste the profile of the
dark rum. But i have to say the rum base, which is very standard trini mixing rum is nothing special or interesting on the flavour department, but it's all about prefererence because the rum is very inoffensive flavor wise, it lifts up the pineapple even more.
Is bit sweet, probably sugared but it actually compliments the flavor profile of this rum.
Great mixer, is bit lost in heavily flavoured drinks tho.
Imo makes the best cuba libre i have ever tasted.

Prírodne aromatizovaný rum tmavozlatej farby s vôňou po tropickom ovocí, najmä ananásov, ktoré boli po dobu 3 mesiacov macerované v Plantation Dark rume, následne ešte raz vypálený. Vo vôni cítiť prezreté ananásy, banány a aj nejaké citrusy. Veľmi pekná, sladkastá vôňa. V chuti je tiež cítiť ananás, banány, vanilku a náznak rumových praliniek. Je o triedu lepší ako Tiki Lovers Pineapple (45%), ktorý sa vyrába rovnakým spôsobom, ale je podstatne viac dosladený a tiež aj viac aromatizovaný. Plantation Pineapple je kvalitný ananásový rum, ktorý sa dá piť na ľade, alebo pridať do prémiového rumového drinku, napr. Dark 'n Stormy so zázvorovým Ale. Môžem len odporučiť.

urcite jedna z dalsich oblibenych variant plantation. s ovocnejsi chutí, ale stejne jemny jako ostatní platntaion.

I am not a fan of flavoured rum but the good rating on this intrigued me. Alcohol or start but a nice smell of pineapple comes through in 15mins. Nice taste of charred wood and burnt sugar like a good dark rum with pineapple. A bit of harsh burn but able to be sipped must try next in a mixed cocktail.

Musím říct, že jsem nechtěl moc ochutnávat. Špatná zkušenost s ananasovým rumem od jiné společnosti. Nechal jsem se přemluvit a ochutnal. Mám ho doma v baru :-) je fakt jiný a moc povedený. Žádné cukrbliky a kudrlinky nečekejte. Je to rum pro velké kluky s lehkým závanem ananasu. Je dobrý a chutný.

In my opinion the best flavoured rum! On the nose and taste clear, genuine hints of pineapple, however not as predominant and sweet as in most other flavoured rums. Great rum for sipping or in a tropical cocktail.

Le 8 est surement trop généreux mais je salue l'originalité, l’arôme d'ananas est bien moins présent et beaucoup plus naturel que ce que j'imaginais. Mais à coté de ça, le rhum manque de "punch", c'est doux ça se boit (trop) facilement mais ça s'oublie vite et ça ne remplace jamais l'originale. Un set pour mini-crêpes Tefal.

I think this one surprises most people. I enjoy this rum to much to have it any other way than as a sipper. (I don't want to hide its delicious pineapple flavor). If you are a fan of plantation dark rum and pineapple - this one takes the cake. The strong pineapple flavor is sweet - but not too sweet- with not hint of artificial flavors. The plantation original dark rum provides the perfect back bone with a subtly funky flavor that lingers nicely.
I dont think I will mix much with this one.

Pineapple nose is beauty but not to strong, taste is excellent with strong pineapple you can feel. Hard to product that kind of rum. 8 like mark is more than right
