Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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. It little quantitites this is manageable, but in mixes it makes me sick.
On the other hand the 3-star “white” is a monster.
Very smooth and delicate with good tones of dark rum.
I've had it's big brother, the over proof, and didn't know exactly what to expect. When I tried it, I was pleasantly surprised. The nose is nice, light, and fruity. The taste is sweet, slightly oaky, and no burn. For a low cost, this will be a for sure for my bar.
Really liked this rum for the price as I wasn’t expecting much.
Guter Duft und passt hervorragend zu Drinks.
Ergibt einen sehr feinen Grog.
Haven't seen this one before. I've not been disappointed by any plantation thus far and still am not. This is a nice balance between sweet and bourbon like. Definite caramel and vanilla but pretty subtle. No problem on the rocks, probably a splash of soda would be perfect. Maybe later...
Es un ron muy pesado, que quema, pero también agradable sabor a piña y madera. No es precisamente un ron para novatos.
My daughter took me to a new rum bar in Tacoma, the Devil's Reef. It's owned by the same people that brought Tacoma the Cabana Rum Bar. Sadly, they brought over a mere 20 of the 280 bottles from the Cabana. They had introduced me to Ron Cartavio XO which I love, but at $80+ a bottle, I had to find a much more reasonable regular quaff. I had a flight of several rum samples, but one that surprised me was the Plantation Original Dark double aged. It has a beautiful nose, strong of molasses and burnt sugar. The alcohol burn was minimal, and had a really nice mouth feel. And, at $20, it's a great all around rum. I must admit, I enjoy a sweeter rum that has the flavor of caramel, toffee, brown sugar and molasses. This one hits all the notes I look for, and at a price that is surprisingly inexpensive.
V rámci přechutnávání známých vzorků, byl do party přizván i tento doposud přehlížený a nenápadný blend od Plantationu, který lze pořídit za „morganovských“ 340 Korun. Úvodní čichové oťukávání sice zavánělo chemickým průšvihem v podobě notoricky nechvalných rumových pralinek, vůně se však velmi rychle sladily až do finálního harmonického projevu tmavé čokolády s lehce máslovou olejnatostí a nevtíravě decentní kořenitostí. Originalitu chuti páleného cukru s tmavou čokoládou způsobil silně cognacový závěr v příjemně nasládlém máslovém provedení. Krátký, ovšem celkově výrazný a originální projev rumu zabaleného do designové láhve hodnotím podtrženou sedmičkou, což při dané ceně znamená, že jej mohu vřele doporučit opravdu všem zájemcům bez rozdílu výše kapesného :-)
Purchased a bottle for £22 from whisky exchange.
It's a good well balanced mixing rum from plantation touches of tropical fruit and oak complete the flavour.
As someone wrote, that is a standard now in the bar, will use something else only if I run out if it.
Zachte karamel smaak met een kruidige afdronk. De bourbon en cognac zijn hier goed in terug te vinden.
I was really dissapointed. I have not expected much, but I have found the taste really weird. Coke had to save it.
Was surprised with this rum. Mild, tasty, with nice flavors..
Tuzemák? To jsem si myslel, když jsem poprvé přičichl. Aroma je silně tuzemákově pralinkové. Chuť je díky bohu mnohem lepší, surová, ostřejší ale rozhodně dobrá, bez pachuti tuzemáku nebo Cap. Morgena. Pokud by se mělo bodovat cena / výkon dostal by 8b. Pokud se boduje jen aroma a chut, kvůli přehnanému aroma 6+.
To the nose, figs and toffee. Taste of sweet and bourbon. Overall nice taste and good on ice and not bad with coke. For its cheap price, i highly recommend.
If we talking about what is inside in bottle, I give 6+
But if we take a look how much this Rum costs... it must be close for 8. I buy it for only 12 euros. It’s much cheaper than Bacardi, HC, CM in this price category.
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.
Classic bittersweet Carribbean double aged rum. I needed to add ice and a slice of lime to really appreciate it. Reasonably priced I think this rum is great in all the classic rum cocktails. Has a slight Smokey aftertaste.
I love the bold flavor. Still kind of new to rum. But i love this as a sipping rum. Not my choice for a mixer. I love the color. Aroma could be better. I found it on sale. Which is why i picked it up. So glad i did.
A really good discovery. Tasty as we like it. Not too costly. Wonderful mixer, great sipper. Bought a bottle for my reserve.
Wasn’t expecting too much from this one admittedly given the price. However, it’s actually quite good considering. A bit heavy on the sweet aroma and lightweight on the tongue with a distinct burn from the alcohol but allow it to settle a bit in the glass and it becomes more balanced.
A good mixing rum and can drink neat if you have to but there are better rums about for that. But in saying that I’ve tasted many rums that are far worse and cost a lot more than the €20 price tag.
A decent rum at that price range but it’s a decent mixer for me rather than one to enjoy neat necessarily but I wouldn’t be disappointed if I got this as a gift - hence the 6 rating.
What a bang for the buck, If you are not really into the rum business, this is one I would recommend. For both, a good example and also a bad example.
Why is there colouring inside, might be also sugar.
But you still able to get the Jamaican part out of it, I like!
Floral notes, toffee in the nose, some sweetness and wood and caramel in the mouth.
But not very complex, no deepness? But for 15 Euros. And a RedBull Coke or on the rocks.
