Sud číslo 5, láhev číslo 351.
8 let v sudu po bourbonu, 3 roky v evropských dubových sudech, ve kterých zrálo dezertní bílé víno pineau.
Alkohol: 41 %
Původ: Haiti/Francie
Aroma: Propolis, ananas, exotické dřevo, míza. Oproti svěžejší Panamě 8 yo Red Pineau Finish jde o temnější výraz. Trochu až gáza, medicinálnost (připomene třeba Angosturu). Rozinky, kandované ovoce a zakouřenost. Těžká, plná, originální a bohatá vůně. (96 b)
Chuť: Zprvu výrazná kyselkavá ovocnost, pak příval jemné sladkosti, a pak už nastoupí míza a to nejlepší, co jsem kdy cítil u agricole stylu. Dochuť je pak stoprocentně ve stylu zemědělských rumů. Fantastický, originální. (94 b)
Body: 95
Shrnutí: Ochutnávali jsme s kamarádem na degustačním večeru v českolipském Baru/Kavárně Kocour. Zaměřili jsme se hlavně na novinky roku 2016 od Plantation, novou single cask řadu, kdy jsme postupně ochutnali Réunion 15 yo, Panamu 8 yo, Haiti XO a Barbados 12 yo. K tomu jsme přidali i jedno starší single cask plnění, Cuba 1998. Nová řada je naprosto fantastická a tento skončil z pěti ochutnaných SC zcela zaslouženě na prvním místě, na jeho umístění na špici jsme se shodli oba. Jeden z nejlepších a nejoriginálnějších rumů, co jsem ochutnal.

Bought a bottle of Plantation Haiti XO Single Cask White Pineau Finish while vacationing in Martinique. Very nice and high end packaging, bottle and label design. Light golden color. Very offputting typical Haiti funk smell and taste alongside plenty of oak to the nose and palate. Strong and dry burn at the end. Nasty even when mixed.

Dunkles glänzendes Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase, eine wundervolle Fülle von Düften, geräuchertes Steinobst und dunkle Beeren werden begleitet von etwas Medizinartigen und etwas wie Huf oder Horn in einem angenehmen Weg.
Im Gaumen springt dieses rauchig medizinartige trocken auf der Zunge herum, dabei werden leichte Malz und Karamell Aromen frei. Nüsse und süsses Obst runden das ganze ab.
Im Abgang verschwindet das rauchige Aroma sofort (was ich persönlich schätze) das Obst und Karamell hält lange an.
Ein Rum für Geniesser mit Zeit und Musse

Dark shiny amber in the glass.
In the nose, a wonderful abundance of scents, smoked stone fruit and dark berries are accompanied by something medicinal and something like hoof or horn in a pleasant way.
On the palate, this smoky medicine leaps dry on the tongue, while light malt and caramel flavors are released. Nuts and sweet fruit complete the whole thing.
In the finish, the smoky aroma disappears immediately (which I personally appreciate) the fruit and caramel lasts a long time.
A rum for connoisseurs with time and leisure

The funk on this is pretty nasty. It's pretty terrible, knowing that it comes from such a great distiller and at such a high price point. However, if you mix it with a lot of sugar and citrus you almost forget that you hate it.

Nose:
Extremely sweet nose reminiscent of st lucian rums.
Sweet grapes
Pear

Palate:
dried tropical fruits
pineapple syrup
quite tart
green grape
macintosh apple

really nice rum. I can't imagine which distillery this is from but i think there is a lot of cask influence. Not to say that is a bad thing but its unlike any hatian ive ever had.

extremely unique and tasty rum which im surprised at for 82 proof

Травянистый в аромате с лёгкими нотками солёного сала, надеюсь на повторение СенЛюсии... таки да, сладкий, карамельный, с привкусом сала, цитрусовых цукатов. 9/10

Fried banana, cumin, burnt sugar and a touch of golden syrup.

When I tasted my first Jamaican pot-still rum, my image of rum was challenged. All those crazy, funky flavors were hard to understand at first, though I quickly grew to love and appreciate them. When I tasted this rum, I was challenged once again...
The nose is heavy oaky funk, cigar-box, and stewed plums. The taste is remarkable, and hard to describe - think rowdy and bittersweet dark stone-fruit with medicine cabinet, cigar wrapper, and old dusty wood. The finish, once the hogo has subsided, is strawberries.
Absolutely fascinating. A welcome change from the typical vanilla, molasses, bourbon-y, or otherwise light and unflavorful rums that are flooding the market. It is bold and funky, and like nothing I have ever tasted before. Not a rum for everyone, but definitely on the high-end of my shelf.

Colour is nice.
Smell is ok.
Taste is not good.
Aftertaste of burned rubber.

This one had some very different flavors for me - like leather. Its a funky one for sure. Nice but different. Not one I want to drink all the time but a change of pace for sure.
