This is another great plantation rum! And it costs less then a Captain Morgan! But this one you can enjoy as a sipper. A CM you can't drink without coke, at least the cheaper ones. And if you want to mix it you will never go back to rums like CM. The smell is smooth full of arrak, vanilla and banana. It have a quite oaky sweet taste of vanilla, arrak, rumraisins and banana. I have a feeling that a bottle of plantation original dark will always be in my cabinet. A cold winterday blend this with hot chocolate and some whipped cream on top and you will be amazed! Go and buy now, a must have!
This is my absolute favorit rum for a Dark'n'Stormy.
This! Is! Awesome!! This is standard procedure done really really well! Strong aroma loaded with tropical fruits and brown-sweetness (toffee, caramel, you know.) Brown-sweet takes over in the mouth with molasses coming out, but still rounded out by those fruits and a little spice joining in the fun. Finish is just a nice warm tickle as the goodness fades. And to top it off, its $25 a liter. Best value there is. Period!
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.
cant beat the price. on the rocks or mixed good either way
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.
The benchmark under 20€ nothing to say more👊 buy it, taste it, think about the price and be amazed!
Rhum simple mais sympa avec un fort arome de vanille
not sure there is much wrong with this, dark n stormy loves it
Not a bad rum but have had better. Not the traditional smooth easy drinking rum.
Almost 7 :) A little bit too harsh but quite sippable. Great for cocktails.
Overall good, classical rich and smooth taste. Nothing surprising though.
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!
Nuz, az som Bozkovu dal 4 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.
Zo základných Plantation najlepší. Aj čo sa tela týka a aj dochute. Aj keď komerčne postavené mixy.
Mid gold colour, lightly burnt, caramel, buttery, sweet winey finish
Very nice colour and bottle, ridiculously affordable.
First impression might be a little overwhelming. Let it breathe a little after pouring into a glass. The aroma and taste will bloom into a pleasant and balanced experience. (OR, if you like to suffer and burn drink it right away - the esthers in the pot-still part of this rum will see to a nice spicy burn.)
Personally I'd rate it 6-7/10.
Cannot go wrong with this one, especially due to a low price. Worth a try.
had a horrible taste at 1st but then the real taste kicked in and wow how powerful strong, knock your socks off
A lot more Jamaican than Trinidadian... Opening the bottle you get a bit a cheap funky aroma , then caramel , vanilla etc. Tastes like it smells , average.. Makes a good mixer and I will use the bottle for cocktails , it should be perfect for that.
Decent for a sip. No surprises here.
Good for mix.
Aká cena, taký rum. Lacná umelina, ktorá nechutí, ale do koláča by som ho dal.
