Rum barbadosról. 11 évet érett bourbonos hordóban..igazán komplex ízkavalkád. Édesgyümölcsös, picit mentás, pikáns fűszeres,minden egyes korty igazi felfedezés , a palack is mutatós !!
A true rum. Very aromatic flavours and I have to say it's the best rum I've ever used for sunstroke!
It's smooth, mildly sweet, smooth with a slight burn in the mouth. Prefer over 20th anniversary. Will slowly sip this away. Worth the cost of $46. My favorite Plantation to this date.
Super ik hou van plantation rum deze super lekker met een milde sigaar 👍
This one seems to go by different names. Mine is called a Gand Cru, but i think it's essentially the same rum just with a different label.
It has a faint smell of stewed fruit, pineapple and banana. Those flavours are all present in the mouth, as are an alcoholic burn, a dryness and a deep lying sweetness, a subtle hint of brown sugar and maybe the slight zest of star fruit. Certainly, it has more of a tropical note than many rums.
Even if you hadn't seen the bottle, you'd know instantly that this was a Plantation rum. It has that sweetness to it (here in the background rather than foreground) and that smell of tropical fruits and the warming burn on the tongue and back of the throat - not harsh but certainly powerful.
This is bottled at 42% so has a depth, and it is perhaps a little resonant of the Pineapple Stiggins in that there's a strong hint of fruit - but here that fruit is a subtle mixed note, whereas the Stiggins is clearly pineapple in the middle of the flavour though not overpoweringly so. This is also an older rum, much less sweet, more composed and the kick is much more subtle compared to the Stiggins, which has the kick of a mule if you let it hit the back of your throat.
All in all a very fine rum and certainly a refined sipper worthy of time and, perhaps, a fine cigar.
Alkohol: 42 %
Aroma: Luxusní vůně od prvního přičichnutí. Medovina, výluh ze starého dřeva a sladkého koření, med, starý nábytek, kokos, mírně lak a leštěnka na nábytek, medovinová nakyslost, Krásně zaoblená, harmonická a vyladěná vůně. (93 b)
Chuť: Sušší než by se zdálo podle vůně. Pikantní kořenitost, dřevíčko, kokos, sladkost asi tak 40 %. Skořice, hřebíček, čokoláda, rozinky. Pěkně sametová chuť. (89 b)
Shrnutí: Ochutnal jsem díky českolipskému podniku Kavárna/bar Kocour, kde jsem zakoupil 60 ml vzorky pro další společnou degustaci v Hořicích u josého. Tohle mi opět sedlo, časem pořídím celou lahev. Z pěti ochutnaných rumů skončil tento na 2. místě.
The best one I have had of the 2001 series, amazing sipper that begs to be used in a cocktail (unfortunately I haven't had the guts to do so).
Smooth, butterscotch notes. really enjoyed this one.
In my opinion yes. Probably my favorite rum that I have had so far. Very similar to the XO in terms of flavor (lots of sweetness but never cloying) with an added touch of funk/grass. Full bodied. Outstanding.
All Plantation Rum is among my favourites, this one i resently higher my scoore to 9. I like the concept with different years and Caribian countries👍🏻
First time with plantation rum.
You have to tast it
Sweet smooth vanilla nose, super mild taste with slight alcohol spicyness and warmth. Truly a fantastic choice.
Found it in a German liquor store and was so happy with it that I went back to buy another bottle. I have both the regular and the vintage grand terroirs, which I believe is the same, just with different labeling. Got two very nice glasses to go with the bottle as well.
Popping the cork and getting that first smell was very satisfying. My first sip reveals a very nice and fruity flavour. Also a nice hint of oak to it. Really smooth in the mouth, with only a very light burn. The finish is long and wonderful, the fruity flavour at first and then the oak stays the longest.
I got it for €32,50 which I thought was a steal. I don't know what they normally go for though. Highly recommended at this price point.
This rum embodies the essence of discernment between what is referred to in harsh terms as "heat", and what is affectionately referred to as "warmth" when talking about alcohol taste.
2001 Barbados warms the palate and throat in the best way I’ve ever experienced. It's smooth, with a dominant butterscotch note on the smell and taste, and the finish is warm and soothing. Everything else takes a back note to mostly butterscotch and vanilla notes, however, the dominant flavours don't overwhelm the palate. For extra credit, even if you've had a bit too much of it and gotten a bit tipsy, the flavour is still right there with you until the very end.
Bravo Plantation! The 2001 Barbados is top notch to me!
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 am rapidly becoming a fan of the Plantation brand. This is the second type of Plantation rum I've purchased and it is just awesomeness in a bottle. I think I will have to pursue more of their other rums to see if those are as good. I ranked the first Plantation brand rum (Plantation XO 20th Anniversary) as a 9 as well but I look at is as a 9.95 for the XO to a 9.75 for the 2001 Barbados. Incredibly smooth, somewhat sweet with a nice vanilla undertone. Not really a burn but an enveloping warmth coating the back of the throat. A true sipping rum. I don't think I will be using this in mixed drinks or Coke Zero. If you run across a bottle of this, buy it immediately. But save for special occasions.
Excepțional, parfumat și cu un aftertaste simplu dar foarte elegant. Un rom deosebit cu o aromă unică. Only on the rocks!
It's that simple. The flavor lurking behind the light color had me jump out of my seat at the initial taste. I'm now upset I couldn't buy a 2nd bottle.
Hozza amit Barbadosról kell, könnyű-közepes test, lágy vajkaramellás illat, kicsi vanília. Nem egy komplex ezerízű rum, egyszerűen kerek. A szájban egyáltalán nem éget inkább melenget, nagy élmény kortyolgatni, és úgy érzed édesnek, hogy eszedbe sem jut a cukor.
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.
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.
Plantation can do no wrong for me. Such a comforting drop, silky smooth caramel notes finished off with a slight warmth and lovely little dance on the tongue of butterscotch. Almost perfection in a glass!
Na XO 20 to samozřejmě nemá ani z dálky, ale za své peníze (700-800 Kč) dostanete, co jste chtěli, a je to určitě lepší než mnohé jiné rumy z Barbadosu v této cenové kategorii, zejména pokud nemáte rádi příliš sladké.
Opakovat to ale nemíním (a nejspíš ani zkoušet jiné ročníky).
This is another nice rum from Plantation. Some are sweet at times but nothing a little water or ice can't cut or it means you just need to add less sugar to a mixed drink if you use their product.
