I was really dissapointed. I have not expected much, but I have found the taste really weird. Coke had to save it.

Aká cena, taký rum. Lacná umelina, ktorá nechutí, ale do koláča by som ho dal.

I'd heard a lot about Plantation rums. They seemed legendary. I usually research rums a bit before I buy them in the store, but the reputation of the company led the charge for this impulse buy. Not a great idea on my part. This rum is sweet--cloyingly so. Whatever cocktail you use it in can easily have the amount of simple syrup reduced as an offset. The aroma is distinctly overripe bananas. That pretty much sums up this rum--cloyingly sweet, with a hint of overripe bananas. It makes a passable rum Old Fashioned, but it kind of ruins Coke. I cringed and had to force myself to finish the glass when I tried it neat. It's a mixer only--and even then not for your favorite guests.

I can see where they were trying to ge here. We felt that it wasn't very smooth in flavor or burn. Some felt that it had an odd plastic taste to it. Overall, we didn't enjoy it neat or on the rocks. It's a mixer.

Z rodiny Plantation mám vyzkoušený XO 20th Anniversary a to je samozřejmě jiná, ale nutno dodat že taky i jiná cenová kategorie. Original Dark na mě nezapůsobil a hodnotil bych velmi podobně jako viz mé hodnocení na rum Austrian Empire Reserva 1863 ...tedy bohužel ne, tento rum už si nepořídim. Ještě pro přesnost, rum Plantation Original Dark pořídíte za cca poloviční cenu rumu Austrian Empire....a nejen pro to bude mít i své fanoušky. Lahev má špunta:)

Nuz, az som Bozkovu dal 2 z toho nieco naviac, ze je zo susednych luhov a hajov, v hodnoteni tohoto rumu, ktory mi Bozkov pripomína, iba nie je az tak desivo sladky nemam co navyse pridat. Trocha vanilky, perníkove korenie a kopec cukru. Nechuti mi ani v daiquiri, kde sa uplne straca.

I agree with the most of the positive reviews about the sweet and complex character but the vanilla end feels very-very artificial in this rum and it makes it undrinkable for me. In little quantitites this is manageable.

Tried the Plantation Original Dark Double Aged on a rainy afternoon and what a disappointment. Color is very deep dark, but the smell test reveals a very offputting soap and glue combination which carries all the way to the taste taste. Nasty burn at the end does not help the matters. Struggles to earn a 3 in my books.

The nose is not attractive, it smells like petroleum and it fallowed all the way to the finish. Very disappointed since I love Plantation products sooo much.
