Enjoyably floral with hints of fresh honey and mint leaf. Milk chocolate, caramel and cigar box. 2002 vintage rum from Barbados, bottled for the brilliant Plantation range. This began its maturation in bourbon casks, before being transferred over to Cognac casks for a two year finishing period.

My first disappointment with a Plantation rum. It’s just too thin, too sweet and too rough around the edges. It has some spice. Might make a good mixer. Easily consumable “in a bind”. Yes, that is a 5 alright.

Nice flavor of vanilla and caramel but the after burn is quite strong.

Received as a gift. Nose is somewhat light with a slight astringency. Color is a lighter amber. Upon tasting, it is somewhat less complex than the 20th Anniversary, but sweeter. Fairly smooth with a slight afterburn. It's good, but not worth the price. I'll stick with the 20th Anniversary.

This is a great $30 bottle of rum, not $60. It doesn’t really taste like a 15 year aged rum. It’s a bit harsh up front, thin on the mouth and the finish, with strong notes of vanilla and wood. Solid rum, just not exciting

5.5 on my scale. Was okay. Had a bit higher hopes for it given the age (12 in Barbados and 3 in Spain). Straight had a little vanilla flavor. Mixed nothing really called out.

Nice rum with tones of caramel en chocolate. Smell is also nice.

It is a tasty and fairly layered rum. It has a caramel and buttery vanilla finish. The knock might be that it can run a bit hot and have a boozy finish. More so than the (by my estimation) markedly superior 2001 Barbados.

Plantation est vraiment une marque de qualité avec son goût complexe rehaussé par un double vieillissement. La Barbade et la Guyane dont mes 2 pays préférés. J adore sa douceur et son goût fruité.

Very good rum from Barbados with typical Bajan notes. Quite round and sweet, with notes of honey, mint and almost chocolate. Love it!
