Plantation does not disappoint on this one! At 69% this rum has far more complexity then most at far less abv. O.F.T.D. Is defined in my own words as Oh.Fuck.Thats.Delicious. This dark overproof rum makes some kick ass Cuba Libres and painkillers. Would recommend to anyone that wants a cocktail with more oomph.

This recently became available in my area for $34US/Liter. Finally! Having consumed a bottle over the past couple of months I can say that this will be a stock item in my cabinet. Dark, rich, funky molasses goodness with punch that makes a knockout Cuba Libre. Exceptional bang for the buck and unsugared unlike many of Plantation's offerings...

The almost 70% kicks you like hell on the first sip. But with a cube of ice and some perseverance you tast the complex flavor of burnt sugar, tropical fruit. The after tast becomes dry and woody with a touch of chocolate.

Sugar: Estimated at 17 -20 GPL. Wow, does this ever sneak up on you! Wonderful aroma and taste but look out for the punch that comes with it. Burnt Sugar, dark chocolate, vanilla and raisins are the major flavours that I found. It's very smooth and you can drink it straight up but make sure you have a glass of water nearby to put out the fire. As a mixer this would be awesome. I would have more to say about that except that it's not available in Ontario and I was limited to just a taste at an out of town rum bar. It's on the shopping list for sure. You need to have one in your bar for the bold drinkers.

Niet goed gelezen en de 69% over het hoofd gezien, weggeblazen door de krachtige maar toch subtiele smaak. Simpelweg teveel alchohol om als sipper te drinken. Op aanraden van een andere user hier de combo met Coke Zero geprobeerd en die is inderdaad verbluffend goed. Alleen is dat niet helemaal waar ik naar op zoek ben en is de fles eigenlijk ook wat duur voor.

Kryddor och torkad frukt i doften. Oljig med söt smak av frukt och kryddor i smak. Litet alkoholbett.
Ganska kort torr eftersmak. Blir som vanligt inte besviken på Plantation.

Overproof rum is a world on its own, and it is certainly not for the faint of heart. With that being said, if you enjoy the burn, then you will probably love this edition from Plantation.

Nose: Plum, caramel and a light funk infused with banana bread
Taste: Very rich taste of maple, overripe fruit and a nice smoky body. Long warm aftertaste that spreads from the mouth, not only to the throat, but the whole body.
Overall: This rum is really something special. The 69% abv is something, that will scare of some people, and that is understandable, but if you are up for it you will get a tasting experience like no other.

Didn't know what to expect when I tried this one, but after tasting it, definitely more than I expected. Great flavor profile, amazing after taste, hardly any burn. I will for sure keep this on hand for parties.

I think I will not get myself on this boat again, but that was a nice experience. Pirates would definitily kill for its power and taste, and strong influence on body;)

Final verdict: Maybe some day I will giv it another shot

Really has a punch... After the initial burn I was very pleasantly surprised by the good and full taste.

Dark overproof blend consisting of Jamaica, Guyana and Barbados rums. This rum has very interesting history involving the developing group consisting of the most respected tiki bartenders including Martin Cate, and also cocktail historian David Wondrich who was also involved in making the excellent Plantation pineapple.
Nose: strong cinnamon, nutmeg, sweet tropical fruit.
Taste: Strong cinnamon clove and nutmeg, vanilla and light oak. Dark slightly charred molasses.
Demerara rum flavours dominate this overproof blend, jamaican and barbados flavours are just complimentary elements on the taste.
Finish: spicy, quite dry and lightly oaky lots of kick when sipped neat but no alcohol.
From what i have read this rum doesnt have any added sugar in it so extra points for that.
It can be sipped on its own even though it isnt aged(for long at least), has plenty of strong spicy demerara goodness flavour in it.
Is amazing in tiki cocktails. You could replace the cornerstone lemon hart 151(which is almost impossible to find) with this overproof.
Extremely recommended for tiki lovers.

Some sweetness, spiciness, fruits, thin taste, maybe little dry & after that a huge burn make you say Mexican drink or what?.... Stop read coments dont buy it you drink & pay pure alcohol a marketing fraud....

It hits those Jamaican ester notes, but doesn't go overboard with them. It's overproof but drinks like it has a fiery spice instead of like jet fuel. The overripe banana transitions perfectly into those almost dusty dried fruit flavors. There's some interesting tobacco and coffee flavors in there that, when mixed, bloom into a soft chocolatey-ness.

Neat is almost too dense of a flavor, but splash some water in there and you have a wonderful drink. Mix it and it will do wonders.

What a rum.

Cette bouteille est a mon sens la réponse, en toute simplicité, a la question "qu'est ce que le rhum".
Une attaque franche et fraîche , des notes épicées et légèrement caramel.
Une grande réussite a mon sens

One of the finest oaked overproof blends, and an incredible value. I picked this up for $26 / liter. It has an incredible high ester note, rich notes of dark caramel, raisins, brown sugar, and a satisfying burn. Diluted half and half with water, it still proves a bit potent for sipping, but that's not the intent in this blend. This is The Go To for all things cocktail. It will leave an indelible mark on cocktails. It is an overproof blend that should be present in any committed rum collection.

Plantation may not make the rum they bottle, but I have yet to find a company that is better at the art of blending.

There are many uses for an overproof dark rum in the bar, with classic mixed drinks usually standing as primary. There are few options on the market, with Lemon Hart's 151 as the most famous. They all tend to follow the same scheme: Rich toffee, caramel, cinnamon, and spice with a whole lot of burn and explosiveness. Aromas can be overwhelming... Most have added sugar or molasses, and some form of coloring. The Guyana bottlings tend to be the most famous.

Bearing that in mind, this rum definitely doesn't disappoint, striking all the classic notes with great finesse. The nuances are nice, and tend to show up more when diluted in a tropical cocktail.

I experimented a bit and used it as the base for a Rhum Arrange, and it came out crazy... It was too much for most mixes or even neat, but with ginger beer... oh my.

A good one for the shelf.

I use this to make the Zombie and other tiki drinks that call fir Lemon Hart 151 and Jamaican/demerara blends. I recently made a simple mix with fresh lime juice and sugar syrup and I swear there was cinnamon in the mix but that’s because the lime, ice and sugar mellows out the high proof and lets those notes stand out. Sipping it is only good if you are Gene Simmons and plan to breathe fire!

Strong, yet complex in flavor. It’s interesting and as I finiah the bottle hard to really describe. It mixes really well. It’s rally good overall, but not much of a sipper w/ ice.

Posted almost 2 years ago by Glenn from United States with 20 ratings

nose – vanilla, butterscotch
taste – vanilla, leather, cinnamon, toffee

Can stand up on its own versus 151 counterparts. Made Zombies with this and Hamilton 151, very acceptable replacement.

I’m new at rum tasting, so please forgive me for being so shallow. I’ve tried a few rums until now and it’s usually the same commercial stuff: Appleton Estate V/X, Saint James Rhum Agricole, Brugal Ron Anejo, Barcelo Anejo, Abuelo Anejo, Havana Club 7, Bacardi 8... Nothing gets close to Plantation O.F.T.D.

At first, I’d say that it’s not so much for rookies. You have to know a bit about alcohol to be able to enjoy sipping it as is. Whether you come from a whisky, a cognac or a vodka tasting background, this one is nice to have to start with. It has obvious flavors. Obviously, you’ll find the molasses deeply rooted in the liquid. You’ll also find some caramel, some burnt sugar, some dried fruit and maybe some hints of fruit jam.

Some will mix it. Personally, I already have enough of other brands to mix cocktails. This one will remain well hidden behind bottles which are easier to get. I’ll save this liquid for cigar nights. Maybe I’ll add a few drops of water to mellow a bit the taste and find other hidden flavors.

I had the chance to try stuff as Zaya 12 and Zacapa Centenario 23. I can tell you that, even if I’ll have as much fun sipping all of those, I won’t get the same kind of pleasure. While the first two are mellow and easy drinking, full of delicate flavors, the Plantation O.F.T.D. 69 goes straight to the point with no tenderness. If you can hardly handle 40%, don’t go for it. If you can easily handle 40%, you’re good to try something new and you can find it, go for it.

Over here, it’s CAN$40.25 (about US$30.35). According to me (and I will remind you that I’m a rookie), this rhum is worth every penny.

This was a pleasant surprise as I was expecting some more burn with the very high proof and lack of an age statement but a great sipping rum for those who like high proof.

Nice aroma -must breath in glas longer time. Too strong to enjoy straight. Heating very long time and dry aftertaste.
