Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
For the price this is one of the best rums on the market. Not one for the purests. But it really is a lovely rum. Heavy on the malasis but smooth as at the same time. If you just want to go home have a nice glass of rum with a cheep cigar this is the one.
Very good rum for the price. Smooth, light and tasty, close but not has good as Plantation XO 20th Anniversary.
After an escapade with the fantastic El Dorado line, I was doubtful there were rums that could match them (El Dorado) in cost-to-quality. However, I decided to give this Plantation a go because I heard great things about its more expensive counterparts, and am happy that I did!
As far as the taste goes, it's pleasantly light and extremely approachable--much like what Japanese whiskey is to its respective genre. I catch mild hints of lemon, cinnamon and tropical fruits on both the nose and palate. It's very smooth going down. Flavor does dissipate instantly once swallowed, which I find interesting.
Overall, Plantation Grande Reserve is better than the El Dorado 5-Year, and about on par with the 8-Year as the best rum in its price bracket. Great sipper, great mixer, and should appeal to both the experienced and inexperienced rum drinker.
A nice rum, great substitute for bacardi in cocktails
Comfortably one of my favourite rums consumed in the last year. Simply sip with a single piece of ice. Not too sweet, honeysuckle notes and vanilla toffee apple. Well recommended and extremely good value for money and the bottle looks great. About to order another bottle later as I'm about to finish this one.
Yet another fine rum in the Plantation line from Barbados. Smooth and flavorful making this an extremely versatile rum that is great for mixing or enjoyable straight up.
Nice bottle presentation...
Very well balanced rum. On the nose, molasses or burnt sugar, with coconut, vanilla and warming spices in the background.The palate follows with a little sweetness and wood with a nice, smooth finish. Great sipper and bar stocker for cocktails. For around $20 it’s hard to find a better value.
Kdyz jsem si tuto lahev koupil byl jsem zklaman. Lihovost a ostrost mne odrazovala. Nyni je lahev temer dopita a musel jsem zmenit nazor. Nyni je zacatek sladky pak jde do rozinek a lihovost je pryc trosku to konci whiskou. Vubec to neni na skodu.
This rum isn’t anything to write home about, but don’t count it out. Great flavor, little sweetness, smooth finish. Good while drinking neat or as a mixed drink.
This is a quality product. Very smooth, sweet, but not overly so, wonderful flavours, and for me it has a short lived spicy aftertaste like pepper or chilli, as opposed to alcohol burn. Just a joy to sip on this neat. I am guessing the smoothness comes from the 2nd aging in Cognac barrels in France. A wonderful Rum at a reasonable price.
This is extremely good rum, especially considering price. It is high on my favorite list.
The title says it all. Hard to believe that you can buy a ‘good’ sipping rum for under $30 (Canadian). Very smooth on it’s own with just a hint of alcohol astringency. At the price there’s no shame in mixing it either if that’s your thing.
This was the first plantation rum I ever purchased...and I was very impressed. Tasty and mild as how I would describe it. No complaints.
smell is a bit dull, but the taste and flavor is quite OK
I’m not a fan of Plantation, think it’s a little bit dull. But this one is definitely pricewhorty with it’s quite alright taste and flavour.
Skøn rom trods den unge alder, bliver nok ikke købt igen, der er for meget andet godt.
For those who just starting with rum, great rum for the money. Very very interesting taste.
Great rum from Plantation. The favourites are from Barbados.
Clean and balanced, like a Bajan rum should be. A bit on the young side, but most Bajan rum isn't all that old - 5 years is about where it's at, and if it gets to 12 years, it's positively ancient. Recommend for cocktails, though I've had it neat, and it was enjoyable enough.
God, blir sällan besviken på Plantation, inte den här gången heller!
This was a rum i get from my brother. Easy to drink after a hard day at work. Smooth and have a nice colour.
I was surprised by this rum, an easy drinker, you could put 3/4 rum in your glass and a touch of coke and you wouldn't even notice that it was that strong. Great smooth rum, will buy again.
Well, this rum is nothing superior. But also, it doesn't make itself something, it isn't. And yet, it becomes great rum. And great friend. It have very very smooth taste with little sweetness, very simple but understanding palate of taste, rather light and fruity and very pleasant spring smell. And that makes it excellent relaxing sipper. Kick-less, friendly, familiar, soothing. At room temperature diluted with small drip of water, it could accompany you for hours, leaving you relaxed. My favourite blend but soothing sipper. As sipper for common relaxing occasions - excellent. As complex rum for tasting and deep enjoying - hardly no. AS mixer - any drink kill it's perks, especially Cola. So no. take a word from my review and turn another cheek for this friendly fellow.
Mycket bra som avec. Dock har Plantation flera som är mycket bättre än den här. Men då den ingår i Systemets bassortiment och dessutom till ett löjligt bra pris så får den extra poäng:-)!
