We were split on this one - it has a slightly smoky finish that is very divisive. If you're into Islay or other peaty scotches, this will be pretty great. Otherwise, it might be a bit off putting. Outside of that though, it's a fantastic rum hands down. The nose is slightly sharp and the mouthfeel is warm without too much burn, and no acridity. All in all, a great bottle, tough to keep around the house.

vůně ovocná, žena cítí banán, kokos a koření, já hlavně skořicí, oba se shodujeme, že je velmi příjemná, chuť sladká, muškátový oříšek a hodně čokolády, další skvělý rum.

This is a rather sweet and smooth rum with flavours of vanilla, fruit, some butterscotch and a little smoky character.

Sympathique mais pas exceptionnel. Doux mais manque un peu de caractère

Very nice gentle aroma. First taste is smooth and sweet, but after it lack character. Taste is not complex with short aftertaste.

This rum almost tasted like it had added flavors. I researched and could not find any proof of this. It is super heavy on banana notes and is as smooth as a whistle. For the price it’s a nice change up

A unique idea from plantation here. Ultimately it's not mind-blowing, tastes like Plantation 5 year that spent some time in a whisky barrel, who could have guessed?, but if you're interested in trying a scotchy rum this is probably one of the best you can go for.

Nothing wrong about it but also nothing spectacular. There are better bottles in this price range. It's good for what it is.

40.6% ABV. Cask 3, bottle 131 (Smuggler's Cove ed.). N: Cane sugar and peaty smoke. P: Sweet with a smokey finish. Vanilla. F: The sweetness lingers.

Do you like sweet rums? Do you also like peaty Scotch whiskies? Then you just might like this rum. "Interesting" is just about the only positive thing I can say about it. This is a fun experiment from Plantation. However, the intense sweetness is constantly at odds with the smokiness, and to me it's really not delicious.

In the end, this rum lacks a reason to exist. Stick with literally any other offering from Plantation or Barbados.
