Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is a very enjoyable sipping rum. The flavour has complexity, though I must agree with other reviewers: the bourbon casks haven't left much elbow room for the subtler, tropical rum flavours. In fact, I'm planning to get some of my Jack Daniels-drinking friends to taste this stuff blind, tell them it's Tennessee whiskey, and see whether they smell a rat. Having said that, the bottle doesn't seem to be lasting all that long, which always seems to happen with Plantation rums in my cabinet...
Plantation Gran Anejo Guatemala & Belize offers a lot of exciting flavors and very clear but sweet flavors like raisins, hardly any burn at the end, but a very long and lingering sweet taste in your mouth. I think this Plantation rum would have been spectacular if it would have been aged a few more years. Plantation Gran Anejo Guatemala & Belize is still a very long distance away from the amazing Barbados XO 20th Anniversary rum, but comes as a good second best Plantation rum in my opinion.
This is the new version of the Plantation Gran Anejo Guatemala available since 2015. Matured in casks for 3 years in Guatemala, and finished in ex-cognac caks in France. Vanilla is very present with almond, marzipan and honey. Well balanced with cocoa, woody vanilla notes. Elegant finish.
Směs rumů, které zrají nejdříve ve své domovině a pak dozrávají v sudech po koňaku ve Francii.
Alkohol: 42 %
Původ: Guatemala a Belize
Aroma: Med, rumové pralinky, staré dřevo, trocha laku. Sladší kořenitost, taky něco málo kokosu, vanilka. Taková klasická rumová vůně. (86 b)
Chuť: V prvním dojmu mě překvapil výraznou sladkostí. Dřevo, čokoláda, med, sladké koření, z něj je tu vanilka nejvíc patrná. (90 b)
Shrnutí: Ochutnal jsem díky českolipskému podniku Kavárna/bar Kocour, kde mají velmi pěknou nabídku rumů. Veskrze příjemná záležitost, hlavně v chuti mě oslovil a určitě časem pořídím celou lahev.
I know that rum from Plantation is very popular all over the world, but after tasting several offerings from their catalogue it almost becomes clear that many of them are very similar. This is no different.
Nose: Tea, vanilla, coconut, green apples and a slight smoky feel to round it off
Taste: Caramel, figs, caramel, coconut and raisins
Overall: The most interesting thing about this rum is the smell. It gave hopes of something different from Plantation, but the taste knocked me right back to almost everything else from Plantation. It is sweet and simple, good, but simple.
In my opinion, this is the best of the rums lined up at Plantation. Value for money anyway.
Pleasantly sweet, but the spiciness floats on the surface and has a slow and persistent finish.
For its price is really great. Not that good like xo or panama 2004 but still very good. In aroma you can feel that was aged in cognac casks. Other flavours you can smell are vanilla and nuts. In taste continue vanilla with oak, cocoa and fruit.
That fair rum, well balanced and a little sweet, a bit of fruits, like mango or aple, a little vanilla burst finish. finish is elegant and long enough. Really smooth sipper but im not sure sip it or mix with cocke? with coke u can taste some coconuts flavour. It is for sure worth your try.
Whooohoo, for that little bit of money my heart skips a beat every time I open that bottle to take a long shot sided with coconut fudge.
I like to sip this one while enjoying Family evenings at home. Good value for the money. It's half the price of the 20th anniversity xo, but that doesn't go for the taste. I would buy this one again.
Found a bottle with only 1.5 ounces remaining; added 1/4 ounce of water, no ice and surprise, surprise, it was delicious; one of the most enjoyable rums I've tasted. This brand "Plantation" is going to be very confusing as they produce rum from so many Islands in the Caribbean.
