Very good rum for the price. Smooth, light and tasty, close but not has good as Plantation XO 20th Anniversary.

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.

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.

Til trods for at det “bare”’er en Grand Reserva er den yderst interessant. Frisk og sød på een gang - tydelige citrus toner.

A nice smoother smell then the 3 star. This one has a great taste, nice and smooth with a long pleasant aftertaste. Quite enjoyable neat.

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...

Great rum to a great price. It works well in drinks even though it’s a bit strong. Would recommend!

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.

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.
