Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is my first Plantation rum and it sure didn't disappoint! Immediately on the nose, I got pineapple upside down cake, butterscotch hard candy, dried tropical fruit mix and a little mint hanging out in the background. Maybe a little sweet whipped butter and toffee popcorn (Fiddle Faddle, etc) too.
In the mouth, the pineapple is sweet and light and quickly gives way to a warm, smooth and very balanced body. It's initially sweet and rolls over the tongue like velvet to a refreshing and subtly dry finish but leaves a little sweetness on the lips.There isn't a ton of pineapple flavor but what is there, is ripe and premium. Very, very smooth for a pretty young blend. Just wow! I've been enjoying this neat with no desire to dilute or chill. I suspect this would make dynamite cocktails as others have suggested. That's what I'll do next!
After trying straight I would say that it tastes like a good dark rum with a perfect balance of real pineapple. I could appreciate it straight but once mixed, this really comes to life. Surprisingly outstanding.
Alt for gennemtrængende smag af ananas.
Men dejlig duft
En meget anderledes rom, men at den kommer fra Plantation er ikke overraskende og kan smages (specielt til sammenligning med Black Cask). Duften er ananas All the way og min store frygt var at jeg ville blive overhældt med kunstig ananas, men det var ikke oplevelsen. Den er sprittet i samme dur som Black cask, og ananasen sidder i eftersmagen foruden duften. Der er tilsat sukker, men sødmen er ikke hvad slår mig - ligesom ved Riise etc. - mængden er dog også meget mindre. En fin oplevelse, men ville som udgangspunkt blive brugt som en blandingsrom hos mig frem for en sipping rom.
I drink it straight, on the rocks, in my morning coffee, etc. Really love the "hint of pineapple" flavor:)
First off, the work that went into this rum, from research to production is astounding.
It is exactly what it sounds like, a rum that has naturally been brought to taste like pineapple. This doesn't detract from a very nice undertone of your typical Caribbean spiced rum, but the pineapple flavor takes front and center stage in both the nose and mouth feel.
Very tangy, and a fantastic addition to any mixed drink if you're looking to brighten it up. I even added this rum when a recipe called for pineapple juice and I didn't have any on hand. It worked very well.
Den är en smula "stickig", dock på ett positivt sätt. Men ha inte för bråttom. Ett gott råd är att låta den stå en god stund. Det tjänar den verkligen på:-)!!!
Sød duft af ananas. Der kan også anes kokos.
Lidt kraftig smag, som hurtigt går over i sødme.
Svag eftersmag. Dog hænger tørhed og lidt styrke tilbage i munden.
Den har godt af at stå lidt inden man drikker den
As mentioned in other reviews, Stiggins is a character in Charles Dickens' "Pickwick Papers", but what others fail to tell you is how the Rev Stiggins preferred to take his pineapple rum: warm, with a splash of boiling water, with three lumps of sugar.
I tried this neat, and the flavor was good, but mostly of pineapple rind, not the sweet pineapple. I tried it on the rocks and wasn't much of fan. Although it tapered the rind flavor, it still didn't seem right. After reading about Rev Stiggins' preference, below is the best way to server:
I boiled a small saucer pan of water. Placing one sugar cube (raw cut cane sugar) in a glass, I poured three teaspoons of boiling water over the sugar cube and melted it down. Then, I added 1.5 oz of Plantation Pineapple and stirred. With the burner off, I place the glass in the left over water in the saucer and heated for 30 seconds.
And my friends... it was the most delicious warmed rum I had ever tasted! Make sure to breath in the warmth and aroma, and then exhale when sipping. I highly recommend!
Ikke smagt. .
I have gone throught multiple bottles of this product before it had actually came into my market and have never really bothered researching it but it is so exciting to be able to actually purchase this locally. Now onto the rum the color is has a nice almost chocolate like color and aromatics hit me as soon as I open the bottle not sugar, sweet, bright pineapple but earthy, woody pineapple. There is no more a sweet flavor that what you would expect from a quality aged rum.
This has a strong citrus taste and goes well with mixing or sipping on the rocks is my choice. Great product and the price is ok if you can find it for $30 or below.
This rum looks like a high end mixer. As a sipper, it tastes both woody and of course fruity, very decent, but as far as sipping goes the XO is smoother, several notches above and does not cost that much more.
Pineapple lovers rejoice! Not to be mixed, just enjoyed, very clean finish.
Very sweet but doesn't taste entirely like pineapple. smells like pineapple.
Ce rhum est tres atypisue. Ce n est pas un rhum classique.la masseration de l ananas victoria lors de sa realisation ressort en nez mais surtout en gout.ce qui se degage c est la douceur et la subtilite de l ananas.on a l impression de boire un ananas frais.c est tres bon et durprennant.on l imagibe en cocktail mais se boit comme cela sec.sucre et sur l ananas c est un regal.
Le gout naturel en fait un rhum unique pour les collectionneurs.il a d aiileurs été prime comme rhum original au concours xp.
A 38 euros toutefois c est un peu cher pour un rhum epicee tres bon mais......
A essayer pour ceux qui veulent initier des debutants car fa ile a boire.
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.
En meget god rom, til prisen. Den smager rat godt.
Very good. Very smooth, little pineapple sweet with a hint of leather.awesome.
Chuť ananasu je tak výrázná, že není poznat, že pijete rum.
Een heel lekker begin met een duidelijke ananassmaak die ook dieper doorsmaakt. De nadrink is me iets te kruidig waarin het hout sterk doorsmaakt...
Sehr schön gestaltetes Etikett, gut gemachter Rum.
In der Nase und Gaumen: Ananas und ?
Eigentlich zu schade für einen Plantation !
Für ein Dessert ok.
Very beautifully designed label, well-made rum.
In the nose and palate: pineapple and?
Actually too bad for a plantation!
For a dessert ok.
This did not have the sickly sweet taste I was expecting. Instead, it has a mellow, smooth flavor with a hint of pineapple. A welcome addition to the bar.
