Tasty, but not quite great
Kind of interesting thing - fine aroma, rich taste and so on. It even could be drinked neat but it is not "original dark". It have quite light body and taste so it cant be used in cocktails... Alas!
A blend of Trinidad and Jamaica rum which goes through aging in Caribbean (heavily charred American Oak barrel) and France (French Oak barrel)
Funky and fruity in the glass: canned pineapple, papaya, apple pie with sweet spices.
It tasted less funky compare to the nose and much woody with burn of alcohol. Soft/ diluted caramel with cinnamon and vanilla.
Spicy finishing of cinnamon, vanilla and anise. The party ended quite soon yet still manage to feel the burn of alcohol on the palate.
Was expecting a little more charateristic as its pretty good in the glass.
I wouldn't buy this one ! I'm happy i got a free sample.
I do like plantation rums but not this one. For a few $ or € more you can get the Barbados 5 year old or the grande reserve, wich are much better in my opinion.
Like many others I have tried several offerings from Plantation. They can be hit-and-miss with their rums. This one is nearing the miss part of the spectrum.
Nose: Peppercorns, cloves, brown sugar, cinnamon and caramel
Taste: Pineapple, caramel, cinnamon and raisins with a very short and sweet aftertaste
Overall: This is not a spectacular rum in any sense. It is to sweet and simple for me, but it is very cheap and is a good value for money if you need to tighten the purse strings
