Au nez on sent agrume, au goût le pêche ananas agrume et sucre brun. Un rhum épicé avec un double veillissement. J aime bien

I found this little beauty whilst work away from home (UK) in the USA. I was impressed that this little gem, that I'd never heard of, tasted so good. The surprising thing is that I have since found it in my local supermarket (Asda) at a reasonable price. Naturally this has gone into my cabinet as one of my "go to - everyday" rums. For the price this is very smooth which I prefer to drink neat without ice. Ironically the 5 year, that my wife purchased by mistake, tastes even better. I'm spoiled for choice with the Plantation rums and can't wait to try more.

Very nice dark sipper rum. Overall delightful, slightly smoky and sweet taste which induces a pleasant warm feel. Straight up one of my favorite rums.

Take Wray & Nephew White Overproof, add some sugar and water. Result: great mixture for the cocktails

Edit: pretty smooth and addictive. Incrementing the score.

You can't go wrong with that. Tasty and not expensive.

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

nice fruity taste, finished with warm vanilla, smell is so good, melasa with banana, a little bit milky, thats good dark rum, could be sipper but much better for mixed, it is worth for buy, also good for beginners.

Аромат коньячный (чувствуется довыдержка в коньячных бочках, видимо): фрукты, чернослив, немного шоколада - очень приятный и практически без спиртяги.

Послевкусие - такое же фруктово-виноградное, недолгое, но приятное. Вкус не яркий -
скорее терпкий, чем сладкий, доминирует коньяк и ощущается спиртяга.
А вообще в чистом виде пьётся тяжеловато, как будто он чрезмерно густой (хотя по консистенции - вполне нормальный).

Aroma is cognac-like (probably because of cognac cask): fruits, dried prunes and some chocolate - pleasant and soft, spirit harshness is low.

Aftertaste is the same - fruits and grape, short and pleasant. Taste is not strong - more harsh than sweet, again very cognac-like and with spirit roughness. As a second thought, it's not a mild sipper and it feels like it's too stiff (but strangely its body seems normal).
