Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Barbados 2001 Plantation in itself is not a bad rum, but comparing it to a very similarly priced XO 20th Anniversary and you will be in a different league in a heart beat. Barbados 2001 has much stronger burn and much less flavors than the older sibling XO 20th Anniversary. Save your money and go straight to the best rum out there.
Comes in a very nice bottle. The smell is not strong but sophisticated. Gives a really nice burn in your throat and then a little sweetness. I can taste some vanila, maybe a little lemon or grapefruit. For me an extra-ordinary taste. Like it a lot and if it was possible I'd give it 8.5. Definitly a should try rum especially considering the 30 euro price-tag!!
Almost without any odour but a sweet pleasent chocolate sent.
The taste is very faint with hints of nuts, caramel and smoked.
The taste doesn't linger long but begs for another sip.
Quite sweet and easy. Taste of dried fruit, vanilla and some smoke.
Sweet smooth vanilla nose, super mild taste with slight alcohol spicyness and warmth. Truly a fantastic choice.
