Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I was expecting a simple agricultural rum but I ended up with a fresh elixir with a hit of green apple. It is still rum mind you, no doubt.
Très abordable pour un plantation une finale avec des notes d'amande
Un rhum très boisé excellent à déguster dans n'importe quel occasion
Nic zvláštního, ale nic špatného. Rozhodně budu preferovat nadále Plantation XO 20.
Un rhum assez classic de ce que produit la région sans plus ni moins
Spicy and sweet cinnamon roll with icing sugar. Same time, it has fruitiness of peach, plum and ripe papaya (not a fan of papaya) yet earthy towards to end on nose.
Fruity on palate too. There are honey, canned pineapple, canned peach and thick vanilla syrup with slight earthy flavor or does it make sense to say burned vanilla syrup?
Short to medium finishing. Dry finishing with tannin which reminds me of bourbon.
The other bottle from the Plantation range for around 20€. Again too sweet, not very complex. I'm not against adding sugar to rum in general. But if the sugar overlays simply everything and the whole product come around like sirup with alcohol, it is wrong.
Honestly, I expected more from this. There just wasn’t a lot going on, it was kind of flat. I know it’s a blend maybe that’s why, but it tastes young for something with Big Age written on it in such big letters.
Ničím zvláštní vůně s náznakem dřeva. Příjemná chuť, ale ničím zvláštní. Dobře se pije, ale rychle se na něj zapomene.
Gillar Plantation, men denna är absolut inte bland de bästa!!! .
Lässt sich gut trinken, eine angenehme Geschmacksmischung
So yet another rum from plantation! I just love their rums. But this one the Gran Anejo Guatemala & Belize just didn't do it for me. Nice bottle in a beautiful box though. For the nose it's very oaky and smokey, like a bourbon whiskey. The taste is oaky and rich of roasted spices. Didn't think it was a smooth rum, rather the opposite. More a whiskey then a rum. Mayby it would have been better to age it longer. Let it breathe! But still must say that it's so cool that the taste is so different from rum to rum. That makes the chase after the perfect rum so much funnier.
I was expecting regular Guatemala (no Belize), but it seems to be discontinued. This one is less sweet than others in my cabinet, but I like it. I guess it may have some aging potential.
Caramel, sweet with a finish loaded with spices. Nutmeg, cloves, anise. Not my cup of tea because of the spices.
The Plantation name generally speaks for itself and guarantees a superior rum. I’m sorry but this one is without doubt is the biggest let down so far.
Very little nose, no taste of anything, no burn, in my opinion nothing to recommend it at all.
