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
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....
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.
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.
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.
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.
Nose not bad for overproof. I put on ice and let it breathe. Not typical gasoline as expected and can be consumed as sipper but not recommended. Had Cuba libre and definitely way to go. It doesn’t have flavor like typical plantation. Overall ok. Prefer something with flavor. If looking for no real bite and extra alcohol mixer this is your drink
Use it in swizzles as a base rum with Fee falernum. "I'll drink to that" for some recipes. Beautiful to replace Smith & Cross, with an even higher proof. Blends are difficult to analyze, but his one seems to have the right ratios. Don't sip, mix it!
Raisin, and some.... more Raisin. If you like Raisin then this may be your rum. For everyone else, just skip this one. You could buy stroh rum just as well.
5/10 (I'm not into raisin as you might have guessed)
Un rhum de marin qui réchauffe !
Il faut, selon moi, le laisser un peu s'ouvrir dans votre verre avant de commencer à le déguster. C'est donc un rhum puissant en alcool et en arôme.
Débutants, passer votre chemin... vous êtes prévenus !
This has become my favorite sipper on ice. I find it doesn’t play nice with others in cocktails, with exception. It does make a mean mai tai, but I like it best over a big fat single ice cube as a pre bedtime treat or after dinner digestif. Also, the story on the bottle gets extra points. Keep on killin it plantation.
