Neupřesněných několik let zrání v sudech po bourbonu, 1 rok ve Francii v sudu po koňaku Ferrand a následně ještě půl roku v sudu z jihoamerického tvrdého dřeva Amburana.
Alkohol: 48 %
Původ: Barbados/Francie
Aroma: Perník, skořice, medovník, anýz, vanilka. Trochu z vůně trčí i lihovost. (85 b)
Chuť: Typicky rumová chuť, pikantní, je znát síla 48%, nasládlý jen mírně, jinak spíš do sucha, hlavně později v dochuti. Hřebíček, tmavá čokoláda, dřevo, rumové pralinky, celkový dojem ale kazí opět nevyzrálá lihovost. (83 b)
Body: 84/100
Shrnutí: Za mě zatím vůbec nejslabší plnění z řady Single Cask této značky. Při první ochutnávce mi přišel v pořádku, při další už mi silně vadila ta nevyzrálost a lihovost. Decový vzorek mi bohatě stačil.

Plantation is an excellent bang for the buck rum. This is the first special bottle I’ve purchased. You can taste the extra 8% alcohol for sure. I don’t think I’ll buy again.

Almost impossible to drink. 48° - alcohol only plus mawkishness.
Surprisly, similar taste to mauritius Beach House I had last week.
I'm fooled by XO title - it is "double aged" just for ½ of year.
Fixed it quickly with Appleton 12.
Au revuar Plantation.

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.
