Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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!
A good, relatively cheap choice for all fruity rum based cocktails, though the pineapple isnt that prominent.
I use mine mostly for cooking, bananas in rum, white rum sauce etc.
Very smooth, good straight or on ice strong pineapple taste but easy to drink
Hmmm not fore at all. This is a flavoured rum. Too much pineapple and too sweet. I guess it would taste vey nice in a cocktail, but as a sipper or on the rocks, no way! Uts different I'll give it that, but more of a liqueur to me.
Excellent rhum à boire l'été goût rafraîchissant le goût d'anana est vraiment bien dosé et naturel pas d'arôme chimique ...foncée et d'où il se déguste vraiment facilement
Delicious. A wonderful mixer and great to sip. Outstanding rum.
This rum really broke the wall for me when it comes to flavored rums. Does awesome in a cocktail but I still find it a tiny bit overpowering on it's own so I almost always pair it with another rum.
So smooth I enjoyed it on the rocks. And great in mixed drinks.
The pineapple taste is nice, very interesting, almost no afterburn.
Ce rhum aromatisé a l ananas, goûte les tropiques et agrumes. Très fruité, mais pas mauvais.
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.
