Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
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!
Skulle vilja ge den 7,5 i betyg. Det är spritigheten som drar ner betyget annars är den god
It’s quite good. I really don’t have something bad to say about it.
But I think Plantation (and also some others) is a little bit dull. I mean if I for example want a rum from Trinidad or Jamaica on my shelf I buy a rum from the original distillery.
My first good Rhum, vanilla is the first aroma that i notice, smooth tasting and leaves you wanting more. Going to enjoy !!!
This one is great. Better then the XO. Great, clear flavours.
Not bad, but lacks character. Good value for the price.
5,5 / 10
Must to compare this one with alternative rums...
This is fine rum that you can drink on ice for a long time
Un des bon rhum de plantation bon petit goût de citron ....
Very different taste between first and second sip. Sip after sip was better and better. The best one was the bitterness when you push the rum at the back of your tongue.
Nose: pineapple, vanilla and cinnamon. Also the hint of a cold cigar.
Body: citrus, vanilla, some cocos, ginger and also the taste of cake.
All in all nicely balanced from my point of view.
At first it felt a bit too alcoholic but aftet few sips my tongue got used to that and only well balanced taste remained.
It has been while since i tasted this rum so i have to refresh my memory.
In the nose it was mostly fruity, slight citrus and vanilla.
On the palate it had nice balance of flavours, fruit and oak and slight vanilla.
The sweetness was little bit on the dry side.
Finish was medium long and slightly dry but didnt really develop much interesting flavours to palate.
Overall nice well rounded rum but little too safe for my tastebuds.
Didnt try this in cocktails.
Lite skarp i eftersmaken men en rom man inte tröttnar på. Inte för söt.
Schönes helles Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase sehr gehaltvoll und wunderbar mehrschichtig. Eine Welle aus dem salzigen Ozean, sehr blumig mit Karamellaroma, leicht und frisch. In der Tiefe, das Schwere und Dunkle, Schokolade, Lakritze, Holz....
Erstaunlich wie Zeit und Temperatur diesen Rum wandeln. Düfte von Gebäck und Vanille treten jetzt hervor auch etwas Rauch ist dabei, ganz dezent.
Im Gaumen ganz elegant und weich tanzen Aromen von tropischen Früchten über die Zunge, gepaart mit von dunkler Schokolade überzogenem Karamell und einer Priese Salz und Pfeffer. Ein angenehm warmes, süsses Mundgefühl, Gewürze, Ingwer....
Im Abgang wunderbar lang, sehr fruchtig, süsse Rosinen, dunkle Schokolade....
Ein sehr gutgemachter Rum mit der Kraft aus Trinidad und der Eleganz aus Frankreich der Einsteiger und Geniesser zu begeistern mag. (8+)
Beautiful bright amber in the glass.
Very rich in the nose and wonderfully layered. A wave from the salty ocean, very flowery with caramel flavor, light and fresh. In the depth, the heaviness and darkness, chocolate, liquorice, wood ....
Amazing how time and temperature change this rum. Fragrances of pastry and vanilla are now emerging, and there is also some smoke, quite subtly.
On the palate, elegantly and softly, flavors of tropical fruits dance over the tongue, paired with caramel coated in dark chocolate and a dash of salt and pepper. A pleasantly warm, sweet mouthfeel, spices, ginger ....
Wonderfully long on the finish, very fruity, sweet raisins, dark chocolate ....
A very well-made rum with the power of Trinidad and the elegance of France that inspires beginners and connoisseurs. (8+)
A bit boozey smell initially but once you get past that it's a delightful rum.
Spicy fruit with a long lasting vanilla-taste
Ușor aspru dar la fel de bun. Vanilie din plin dar nu dulce. Only on the rocks! :)
This is a nice vintage edition. From the first sip you can feel the intense frutty aromas of pear and mango, perfectly complimented by lightly pepered woody notes. The aftertaste is well balanced, quite lasting, it leaves you wishing for more of it.
A little to sharp on the alkohole taste, i prefer the 20th over this
I have just started to collect plantation rums. This is my third buy. This one is quite different in taste and smell compared to my other two (barbados grand reserve and the 20th anniversary.) Citrus and vanilla stands out in a smooth smell. The taste is a bit sharper in the beginning then my two other plantations and with a longer smooth finish. A bit like the angustura 1919 but more balanced. Sherrynotes with citrus and vanilla, a bit closer to a fine smooth fruity whiskey in flavour. Great rum if you want something different in taste compared to the more classic rum flavours. The price is reasonable.
Maybe it was the competition but I had hoped for more.
Clear citrus aroma. Nice hints of citrus and arrak and vanilla and nice cask flavors.
