Now this is some good stuff
This is Island life in liquid form. Closest I can get to a beach, ocean breeze, waves at my feet, and an arm around Rihanna all from my living room.
I tred several Platation The Vingage series, which was as good a choice as Nicaragua 2003 and Peru 2004.
Very enjoyable.It has vanilla, coconut, baked fruits, and a deep flavor like chocolate.
Ce rhum est moins sur l agrume que le20eme anniversaire.Mais ses notes vanillées et léger agrumes sont un régal.trés bon rhum plus traditionnel que le 20 ème anniversaire.pour les puristes c est un régal.meme si le20eme anniversaire Barbade reste au dessus.note globale 8.5.
See, Brugal uses a fish net stocking. Typical!
You, you use plant fiber to trap your rum. Now that's initiative!
And what you've caught is a totally decent amber sipper for the price point. Hell, it's even been a great substitute for darks in Dark 'n Stormies. But back to it - totally worth kicking back and relaxing with on the rocks. It's got all the good dessert flavors, plus a smoldering oaky ember on the backend.
Comparable to Diplomatico Reserva, minus the dried fruit notes.
Purchased at Total Wine - $53.99. My favorite rum is the Plantation 20 Yr which I use as a benchmark. This 2001 Barbados is a bit lighter in color, not as deep amber as others. Light nose with a slight smell of alcohol. Even though it is 42% alcohol, the taste is a bit lighter than expected. Clean with a very smooth finish. Very enjoyable - I'll want to try the others from this collection as well.
I don't know if I got a weird batch, but I'm having the hardest time deciphering this flavor profile. Yes I read the label, but I'm still confused. I taste banana, but that's all. I agree with the "softness" of it. I will admit it is an amazingly smooth rum and is a great sipper, however the flavor throws me off. I'm merely ranking it from the smoothness and the drinkability.
Let it rest a minute to breathe. Sip. Stop. Rest. Repeat. Patiently. This has got spunk. And funk. Stays with you. Stewed Stone fruit? Dry. Good.
