This is one of the plantation rums which is poor but not obviously amazing ... Decent flavour
My first sip was actually not bad. The taste was a bit flowery and sweet. I might enjoy this, I thought. My second sip was in the same vein, although I felt I had tasted something similar before. My third sip, however, made me realize where I had tasted this before. Or actually smelled it: In the IKEA flower and scented candles section. And I hate that section. After a few more tries I came to the conclusion: This rum is fine for 1-2 sips or shots, but devastatingly flowery for any longer sessions. It might be good for mixing, but I don't generally mix drinks as I like them neat with a chaser, so I won't know. Sorry, Barbados. I won't be seeing you again...
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.
Another rum that I find myself keeping stock of in my bar because of it's beautiful but sweet rum notes an it's.ability to blend well with pretty much any juice.
Nice rum. Good for the price. Very smooth and easy to enjoy. I like this one.
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.
I bought a 1l bottle of this rum and when i first taste it was like... strange i kinda expected more. But now (1 year later) bottle is half empty and dont ask me how is this possible but it tastes great.
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.
Super smooth, no bite, lots of honey notes. Sweet, but not too sweet. Wish it was a little more complex. Would be great in fruity drinks.
Very light, oak present but not assertive, buttery(?) on the nose. A “silent spirit”. Infamous Plantation syrup / sweetness lingers in at the end.
Light rums often tend to be biting but this one seems less offensive. The slight honeyed sweetness definitely cuts some of that.
Just started my rum tasting more actively - spend some to compare. My taste equipment is far from delicate in sighting little nuances. I do my my tasting best in real time comparison to another rum.
This is my baseline. Small plastic bottle grabbed from ferry shop. Light color, nice aroma, and smooth in mouth. Aftertaste is mostly vanilla. While sipping in comparison with Appleton Estate Rare Blend 12 this is simpler and easier, good honest stuff. No regret for purchase. No need to seek any complex flavors.
Double aged, initially Bourbon casks in Barbados then Ferrand Cognac barrels in France.
Dried banana on the nose with a spiritey component.
On the tongue quite sweet 4-5/5, vanilla and banana dominating with an Esther aftertaste.
Short sharp burn, nothing lasting.
Reasonable value for money but to cloying for me. And not like a Mount Gay XO or one of the superb Foursquares.
Nice Ron, not so smooth, but taste is positive and with nice feel of cask.

If you don't have a lot of experience with rum this is a very decent one. Fruity flavours with a bit of sweetness. Little bit of banana-taste on the background
Vůně: Je příjemná, sladší. 6/10
Chuť: Je sladká, příjemná, ale po chvilce po ní není ani památky. 5/10
Není to špatný rum, jen je vcelku nezapamatovatelný.
Za cenu 450kč raději přídám stovku navíc a kupuju 12letý El Dorado.
Koupil/nekoupil znovu: Nekoupil
Chutný rum, ktorý vás po otvorení prekvapí alkoholovou vôňou s jemným závanom sladkostí
Fľaša: dizajnovo ide o fľašu rovnakú pre sériu signature blend, korková zátka a na spodnej časti je veľkými písmenami zobrazený názov producenta. Pod korkovým uzáverom je logo producenta. Pre mňa ide o veľmi zaujímavú fľašu, ktorá majiteľovi opisuje všetky chute či vôňu rumu, ktorý práve pije.
Vôňa: vo vôni sa pretláča alkohol avšak je tu cítiť sladkosť perníkov, trocha exotického ovocia a karamelizované ovocie, ja cítim trocha sušených sliviek a vanilky.
Chuť: chuť je krásna, sladká mierne alkoholová. Nedá sa povedať, že ide o prevratnú chuť ale viete tu spoznať ovocné tóny, med, trocha škorice. Záver je krátky ale jemný. Zaujímavá chuť.
Záver: Dobrý rum, pre základ do vstupu producenta PLANTATION ide o veľmi chutný počin. Páčia sa mi produkty tejto spoločnosti, čo rum, to iný zážitok.
Pre ostatný: odporúčam po naliatí nechať rum chvíľku postáť, aby sa "vytratila" alkoholová chuť.
Helt okej att dricka som den är, även om den är snudd på sliskig. Gör sig dock bäst i drinkar.
The first rum i ever bought! It will always have a place in my heart.
Easy to drink and much rum for the buck!
Sweet taste, with nice shades of crack, vanilla and banana.
A decent rum that works 365 days a year, Im never overwhelmed but i always know what i get.
Amber-coloured, pineapple-scented. Very easy to drink but short on finish; flavour dissipates almost instantly, does not linger in the mouth once swallowed.
For $27CAD at the LCBO, it's stuck between El Dorado 3/5 and El Dorado 8. Works well when you want something easy-drinking on a hot summer's evening outside.
Originally rated as a 6 when tried during the cold Canadian spring season. Tried it at night at 20+C outside and wish I could upgrade it to a 6.5.
I'm not a rum expert but from tasting it as it is:
Certainly is a step above the cheaper rum.
It's sweet and quite a bit from the darkest spiced variants,
probably the best there is for my favourite mix: rum and coke.
The nose could be improved from my point of view, a hint of booze. Synthetic banana and dates, also vanilla. The synthetic impression can also be found in the body, somehow like (artificial) sweetener. Banana cake, some chocolate and cream. A hint of lemon. Reminds me of dish detergent, sounds crazy but it isn't too bad here. Further, a bunch of typical "Christmas" spices. Among these are cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, cacao powder, ginger and brown sugar. Really nice taste with something to discover!
Quiet decent rum with double aging, a bit too much of vanilla, good balanced, tropical fruits, strong bourbon influence, medium body.
Recommended as an ordinary rum, for sipping and mixing, very testy old fashion.
