Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
En god rom att njuta som den är men passar också väldigt bra med cola.
En tydligt arom av vanilj samt att man även finner smakaen av vanilj. Kan varmt rekommendera denna till någon som vill börja dricka rom rent.
After drinking the Barbados XO ,I thought this was worth a try at one third the price. Not a great sipping rum but it makes a great rum and coke.
Smager godt, uden at være prangende. Super god til prisen
Its a oke rum with a bit light colour, Hash aftertaste and many added sugars.
Trochu ostrý ale zároveň příjemně sladký.
S pantation Plantation XO 20th Anniversary (taktéž Barbados) se to ale nedá srovnat, což je samozřejmě jasné, jak cena, tak chuť...
Not too expensive, but still a good taste. I like the taste of raisins or licorice in it. Well enough as a sipper, but also good to mix.
hezky zakulacený, ovodcný, s vůní vanilky, banánů, kokosu. Celkem zajímavé pití, pokaždé se tváří trochu jinak
This was a rum i get from my brother. Easy to drink after a hard day at work. Smooth and have a nice colour.
For those who just starting with rum, great rum for the money. Very very interesting taste.
Drank plantation barbados with few friends together with plantation guatemala. We all found it somewhat chemical and this was pretty much the only time we had to force ourselves to finish the bottle. From all the good reviews I guess I will have to give it one more try and maybe reconsider afterwards. Maybe a bad bottle?
God, blir sällan besviken på Plantation, inte den här gången heller!
Todella pehmeä eikä juuri alkoholi potki. Voisi kuvailla jopa raikkaaksi rommiksi vaikkei se kovin loogista olekkaan, helppo juotava moneen makuun.
Had it straight, and thought, not bad! I'm an over ice fan, so probably better. Put some ginger beer in (not a cola or coconut water fan) and for the price, it goes down very easily. As a mixer, it gets another point
This rum is a must at all times.
Those days when you dont want to go to fancy😉
A nice rum, great substitute for bacardi in cocktails
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.
Looked at a few reviews but didn't see reference to the wonderful coconut overtones this wonderful rum exudes. One of my favorite sippers for this reason, Plantation GR is a light rum at a good price.
Easy to review a rum when you sitting with a bottle of in front you. Yes I love it. A nice golden double aged rum. I normally tip toward darker rums but I felt the need to try this one. I'm 2 drinks in and no signs of slowin down.
Fruity Barbados stylenotes from a tropical palette. There is almost a creamy texturein the moth. For sipping and drinks.
Nice light rum. Hints of citrus. Easy too drink. Maybe a little too easy...
Skøn rom trods den unge alder, bliver nok ikke købt igen, der er for meget andet godt.
Great rum from Plantation. The favourites are from Barbados.
Very tasty and soft rum. Nice bottle and colour. I really enjoyed this one
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:-)!
