Overall good, classical rich and smooth taste. Nothing surprising though.

Beautiful aromas of prunes and nuts. On the sweeter side, gorgeous colour. $30CAD at SAQ. Decent legs, could be better. Better than Plantation Grande Reserve for $28 at LCBO due to its complexity.

A better mixer rather than a sipper. But you already knew that, didn't you?

Rich caramel and baking spice... is it sweetened with added sugar??? Regardless, it stands out in most any mix calling for a dark. Recommended.

Schönes sattes dunkles Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase breitet sich zuerst eine schwere Süsse aus, gefolgt von Karamell-, Bananen- und Holzdüften.
Im Gaumen, süsses Karamell mit kandierten tropischen Früchten und getoastetem Holz. Auch Aromen der dunklen Macht sind zu entdecken.
Im Abgang fast etwas klebrig, Karamell und Früchte.
Ein Rum für jede Bar, zum mixen super, zum pur trinken ok.

Beautiful rich dark amber in the glass.
First a heavy sweetness spreads in the nose, followed by caramel, banana and wood fragrances.
On the palate, sweet caramel with candied tropical fruits and toasted wood. There are also flavors of the dark force to discover.
In the finish almost a bit sticky, caramel and fruits.
A rum for every bar, to mix super, to sip ok.

I like this rum for only $18.99 (Total Wines & More, 2017 price).

Smells and tastes of charred oak, spice, caramel, and maybe a hint of cognac. Not sweet.

Decent, though I prefer slightly sweeter rums.

Nice bronze color. On the nose are notes of exotic fruits with banana and spices with a light smoky side. In the mouth, it is very sweet, not very long. An excellent rum for cocktails.

Der Plantation Original Dark ist ein drei Jahre gereifter Blend aus Trinidad und Jamaica und hat 40% Alkohol Anteil. Ich habe den Rum pur verkostet und war überrascht das er trinkbar ist. Etwas Süße, Rauch, aber auch extrem kurz und klarer Alkohol schwingt mit. Habe auch einen Freund kosten lassen, welcher den Rum wesentlich teurer eingeschätzt hat.

Am Ende aber doch eher zum Mixen. Irgendwie etwas zwischen dem 3Star von Plantation und dem Havana Club 7. Ist lecker in Cola obwohl ich hier die anderen genannten oder den etwas teureren Grand Reserva besser finde. Aber für ca 15Euro macht man hier nichts falsch. Ich persönlich würde aber zum Mixen eher den 3 Star kaufen. Und zum sippen... guckt euch einfach mein Cabinet an.

The Plantation Original Dark is a three-year mature blend from Trinidad and Jamaica and has 40% alcohol content. I tasted the rum oure and was surprised that it is somehow drinkable. Some sweet, smoke, but also extremely short and clear alcohol resonates. I also had a friend who valued the rum much more expensive.

In the end, however, it's more for mixing. Somehow something between the 3Star of Plantation and the Havana Club 7. It's delicious in Coke although I find the others mentioned here or the slightly more expensive Grand Reserva better. But for about 15Euros you don't do anything wrong here. Personally, however, I would rather buy the 3 star for mixing. And for sipping... u know... see my Cabinet.

I’m convinced that Plantation continues to offer the best bang for the buck in rum.
