I love this double aged rum. It has a nice dark taste to it and excellent on the rocks. If you're looking for something different but not too overwhelming this is a great choice. One of my favorites.
Finally a plantation rum that I appreciate and love the flavour is complex and amazing aftertones aswell, very nice to drink on the rocks and would definitely buy a bottle ...
Plantation barely put a foot wrong imo. Some might complain about sugar and sweetness, but this here is perfect example of what an entry level sipping rum looks like. will make a decent cuba libre, but this one for me is the place to start on 'quality' rum, and is fairly inexpensive too. My favourite way to drink is with a couple of rocks and a squeeze of citrus peel
I wouldn’t really call it dark rum , its a little lighter, which to me makes it easy to drink neat, or preferably with a dash of lime or angostura bitters and a single ice cube.
Good mixer you can taste the difference.
I tried their white rum which I found a little sweet which put me off trying any other of their many offerings, I finally couldnt resist at £20 on sale at asda , and I was glad I did !
I prefer this ti the flor de cana 12 yr old I also bought at asda for £35, which I regret a little.
Smells and tastes a lot like brandy or cognac. The initial brandy flavor quickly subsides into a rich, darker rum flavor. Complex flavor with a lot of woodiness (and something like cedar undertones). Definitely worth a try, especially if you're a Plantation or Appleton Estate lover looking for something a little darker.
This is a rum that has no signature nose and taste of rum.
A lot from cognac, probably because of second ageing in cognac barrels in France.
There are a little of Jamaica 10-15 year old spirits (Pot Still) and that's why it hits you strongly after first 40ml.
Nose - a very nice pineapple, cognac, dryness and freshness, no spirit.
Palate: cognac notes, pineapple, prunes, oak and funny dryness and freshness. Own character, without analogues.
I found that empty glass smells with pinapple.
The more you drink, the more you like it.
Unfortunately there are no signature nose and taste of melassa/sugar cane/vanilla, so it might seem like it's not rum.
Very easy to drink and the morning is very clear.
Love this stuff. Great flavor and aroma without being to sweet. Almost good enough to drink neat. It’s comes in 1 liter bottle and is always a great price.
