I'm generally not a big fan of cognac/bourbon aged rums, as they tend to be too dry for me, but my friends at Vinoble Skanderborg strongly suggested I try this. So I grabbed a bottle, and I'm glad I took their advice!

Smells and tastes of molasses, cinnamon, spice, cognac, oak, bourbon, and honey. Nicely sweet for a bourbon aged rum, and tremendously smooth at 56.3%! It says it was aged in bourbon for 15 years, and cognac for 2 years, but the bourbon isn't dominant (a good thing in my opinion).

This is a 10 to me!

Amazing rum tasting with Falcon91Wolvrn03 continued with a super rare Plantation Single Cask Guyana 17y Cognac Ancestral Cask. High end bottle and label design. Golden color. Strong alcohol hits you straight in the nose. Rather hot at 56.3% Alcohol. Smooth Cognac Finish helps the matter, but does not fully rescue it. Very good Plantation Rum, but does not earn a 10 in my books. Bottle number 118.

Each Plantation rum tells its own story and that is part of the fun of their single cask brews. This example is very good but, to my taste, not as sweet as I like.

I almost always pair my rums with the Cuban cigars that I smoke. Depending on the rum, I drink it neat, over ice or mixed some ice and Coke. The better the rum, the more likely I’ll drink it neat or over ice. This example, fell into the coke added category where almost any decent rum tastes good.

Unfortunately, for the price, I was looking for more. The initial whiff doesn’t give traditional rum flavors. They are too hidden in the alcohol.

Good but not as great as it should be, but I added a point for Planation’s unique single casks.

Very strong. No trace of cognac. The price is to high. I thing that for identical money I can get better variant of plantation single cask rum.

15 let v sudech po bourbonu a 2 roky v sudech po koňaku Ancestral. Plněno v sudové síle 56,3% alkoholu. Cena za toto plnění je od 3200 korun.
Původ: Guyana
Aroma: Ostře kořenitá a štiplavá vůně, až do chilli. Rumové pralinky, rozinky, skořice, hřebíček, staré exotické dřevo, hořká silná čokoláda, propolis. (87 b)
Chuť: Pikantní, typicky rumová chuť, s malým nádechem sladkosti lesního medu. Hřebíček, včelí plástve, propolis. V závěru trochu vysychá. Chuťově mi napřed připomněl styl Compagnie des Indes. Po přidání pár kapek vody se teprve rozvine. Chuť v puse skoro exploduje, med se zvýrazní, sladkost nabírá na intenzitě. (89 b)
Body: 88/100
Shrnutí: Ochutnávali jsme s kamarádem na další rumové párty. Vzhledem k už docela brutální ceně jsme využili možnosti koupit vzorek v baru Kocour. Mít víc, než jen každý jednoho frťana, určitě bychom víc experimentovali s vodou, vypadalo to s ní velmi nadějně. Měli jsme vzorek z lahve číslo 024, sud 4. Tohoto rumu jsou jen 4 sudy.
