Recommendable to most
Nice coppery color with notes of exotic fruits and dried fruits like almond. Very sweet pastry notes for a final not very long. Nothing very special.
Sweet aroma of apples, cituses, cinammon. Some vanilla along with apples and ginger on tongue, smooth spicy warmth. Fruity palate, pretty much well ballanced.
well ballanced, notes of exotic fruits and dried fruits, woody rum, nice blend from the plantation family, easy to sip, little burn, nice aftertaste, would buy this again.
Aромат закрытый, вкус пряный, насыщенный, много трав, мягкого дуба, хорошо. 7/10
On the sweeter side but in a natural tasting way. There are a lot of flavours that blend very well together. It reminds me slightly of the Plantation Jamacia 2002 in that sense, however I feel like these flavours arent fighting one another. Perhaps by that I mean that the flavours are less harsh and softer. There are enough flavours in here that I feel like a group of people could go through several bottles trying to separate them and they would not get further than deciding that there are molasses and vanilla notes. 7/10 is "recommendable to most" but I find it hard to believe that many people would have a bone to pick with this. 8/10 is too strong because this is nothing to right home about unless you identify a flavour you really enjoy. A solid, well-rounded rum.
Update: Banana. Banana is another flavour on further drinking
Update 4/19/2019: Allspice
Plantation Nicaragua 2003 Vintage Edition Grand Cru 42% (9Y + 18 mounths)
aroma: spices, a little oak, caramel-vanilla,
taste: enveloping sweetness, a few herbs, oak, medicine notes,
aftertaste: medium, soft, slightly oak bitterness, sweetness
good and sipping rum. Light, soft - in the Spanish style. Another good release from Plantation
Krásně plný a ostrý rum oba ročníky jsou skvělé 03 byla malinko jemnější na chuti. Plantation je vždy dobrá volba. Ochutnáno asi 10 druhů z jejich produkce a vždy to bylo fajné.
Tried the Plantation Nicaragua 2001 and 2003 rums back-to-back and once more, very little difference between these two different vintages. Both are very dry, much more dryer than the Flor de Cana family of rums coming from Nicaragua and they are already very dry rums to start with. Both the 2001 and 2003 vintages are surprisingly sweet, although they are both super dry. That combination is quite unique in aged rums. Neither of the rums have any burn at the end, so they are quite smooth. Good stuff, but far away from the benchmark Plantation Barbados 20th Anniversary XO.
