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.

This is my absolute favorit rum for a Dark'n'Stormy.

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.


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.
Nice Rum.

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.
