Tasty, but not quite great
The Plantation Trinidad 2003 comes in a traditional Plantation bottle with the ribbons around it (picture).
This is a nice price worthy rum that you can drink neat aswell as doing cocktails and drinks with the Plantation Trinidad 2003 as base.
On the nose you get some alcohol and a fresh fruit with a little bit of vanilla and maybe also a hint of Bourbon from the casks. This rum smells a bit different from other rums I have tasted. Not so much sweetness in the aroma.
In mouth you get fruit, spices and oak. Some sweetness but not very sweet. This rum is smooth in the throat. The aftertaste is intense with lots of spices and oak. The aftertaste is not the best for me.
Not one of the best rums but it is a nice rum compared to other rums in the price range.
Probably need to rate this again at some point, because I am at the end of a cold. I think my smell and taste might be hidden a bit, but this is a very nice rum, aged in Bourbon casks in Trinidad and then shipped to France where it is then further matured in Cognac barrels as a lot of Plantation rum is.
Denna är nog förmodligen den bästa plantationromen, oerhört prisvärd vilket drar upp betyget en aning. Nyanserad smak av arrak och citrusfrukter, något annorlunda jämfört med andra från plantation vilket gör att den sticker ut och gillas skarpt!
I generally like darker complex rum with more body but this one really intrigued me. So smooth. Really incredible. Very balanced with terrific fruit notes and an oak finish. Not overwhelming by any means. Nice, light and a great sipper. Better over ice than neat. Would also be sensational as a mixer. This has definitely earned a permanent spot in my liquor cabinet
This is a good rum. It starts out with a rich pineapple sugar flavor and branches out into some really nice fruity facets. Strong alcohol overtones. Honestly I get more bang for my buck with Stiggins or with Plantation 5 year.
Plantation have become a bit of my favorite brand but this was a bit of a let down. There is nothing wrong with this rum but there is also nothing great with it, the only thing that comes in mind when I think of it is average. Not bad but not good.
My Trinidad was 2008 edition but I suppose it the same. Looking very good - the net, the bottle, the box, the labels and so on. They claim it is the ten years old rum tropical agening with one year of continental one. But I can't to recognize it. It was pretty hard to specify it as 10 years rum but it sill drinkable ))
