Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I develop my profession in an area where making cocktails (except the mojito) is a rarity seen by most people with distrust. In addition, the rum-based combinations are monopolized by molasses rums of Dominican origin. I must also take into account the final price of the cocktail since the average income of my fellow citizens is clearly not among the highest in my country. All this forces me to be very careful in the selection of cocktails and rums. When I make a cocktail based on Plantation 3 stars I feel confident and my clients certainly notice that I am offering them the best of me and my bar.
First thing in the nose immediately after pouring is warming alcohol. After it sits and relaxes for a few moments hints of vanilla, sugar and soft fruitiness come out .
The flavor is smooth and light. Warming with hints of vanilla, and sugar up front. I get a little soda-like quality, almost like a cross between cream soda and root beer. It's fleeting and very soft. The flavors transfer to a soft bitterness at the end and the sweetness dries up. Finish is soft and fast. A soft lingering numbness on the palate. Very clean and crisp. This is a light bodied delicate rum with a lot going on if you look for it. The underlying complexity lends itself to creating great nuances in cocktails.
This is not a hard rum to sip. It's light and smooth. Light rum flavor with other soft notes combining to make a nice drink. It really comes into its own as a mixer when calling for unaged or lightly aged rum. Great in a Daiquiri, El Presidente and other classic cocktails especially those that call for Cuban or Puerto Rican style rums. I highly recommend this for any Tiki enthusiast as it's a great weapon in the Tiki arsenal. A solid 7 for a light sipper and 8 for all around use as a mixer. And at this price it's a fantastic bargain, $18 for a liter bottle in Ohio.
Dosage on this rum is 7 g/L according to the Plantation website.
Honestly, the only thing we have used this rum for so far is to make mojitos. But they were smooth, tasty and didn't taste like they were made with turpentine.
Fantastic taste. Delicious. Smooth. Light in color but don’t let that fool you. This is no Bacardi silver. Robust flavor. Oftd but less flammable. My new favorite.
En trevlig vit rom med mycket smak och doft. Imponerande
Very grassy, exuberant, herbal rum that will give your cocktail an oily touch
This rum is superb. It mixes fantastically and has a very balanced flavor. Makes excellent Cuba libre or dark and stormy. Well worth the price.
Being a denizen of semi-rural Australia I had to mail-order this. Admittedly it's only the third type of white rum I've tried (besides Bacardi, the other is the atrocious Havana Club) but I found it delightful. I don't drink rum straight but this was fantastic in a Mai Tai or with vanilla Coke.
This rum came at me as a gift at a party, and it tastes like a surprise gift indeed. Plantation crafts delicious rums in general, so I was curious what this was about, as I'd had their aged and blends previously around and above this price point. After trying lots of Jamaican rums in the last couple months, I was taken aback with how similarly this tasted. A tinge sweet upfront, but that subsides while you get to enjoy the quick tour of flavors representative of the spirits this is blended from (as I'd later find out: Jamaica, Barbados and Trinidad.).
This makes a great entry into any of these three distinctive styles for someone curious about them. It's not too much of any single one, so if Jamaican funk turns you off, you might like the touch this one lends to the palate. It's good neat, but great in a punch, and probably needs the touch of fruit juice to really set it off. This could easily become a go-to white mixer for the home bar... I prefer em 50% or stronger, but the flavor is good enough here to carry a potent cocktail as a base with stride.
This is my go to White Rum, it's perfect for any mixed drink and makes the best daiquiri.
Agréablement surpris par ce rhum blanc. Pas trop raide. Légèrement sucré. Notes de vanille. Et pas très cher
My go to recommendation when asked for a rum to mix with juices. Plantation delivers another quality product!
I really like this for Daiquiris and any rum cocktail that includes multiple rums to create unique flavor combos. It's damn tasty on its own too.
Nothing on the nose, nothing in the first sip, but does build to a deep heart-warming burn later on. Good neutral rum for mixed drinks.
It is simply said for taste and price one of the great white rum mixers. It can do it all and nestles into any recipe calling for a white rum thanks to its diverse blend. It markedly improves any drink that you would make with any other run of the mill rum. Also just sipped this with an ice cube and it was delicious, almost like it has an alter-ego.
Like said, it’s actually a dark one filtered through the charcoal filter. It’s character comes out the best when mixed(even in a cuba libre), but it’s sippable on its own with lime. Smells ok, but with the usual Plantation trademark sugar/orange/coco smell. Rum has added sugar in it. For the price, it’s an excellent mixing rum, but it does not offer any excitement. Too round and too “safe”. Considering the price/quality ratio - 6 stars. With more character (and without added sugar) it would be a 7.
Osobne mám veľmi rád rumy od Plantation...tento ma prekvapil tým, že sa dá piť aj bez miešania. Veľmi chutný, vôňou nevtieravý...proste za mňa skvelé hodnotenie.
Vůně slabá, ale výrazná chuť. Překvapivě dobrý bílý rum.
Not for drinking straight. Wonderful taste in combination with coca cola though. Keeps it's flavours and puts something special in your rum cola.
Doft av apelsin. Len och mild, lite kryddig i smaken. Smakrik för en blank rom.
Nice and light, has a very sweet taste and is very well embraced by newcomers to the spirit!
interesting taste. funky with a bite at the end. I like the bottle with all the info on it.
Barbados sweet sugar cane and tropical fruit. Jamaican molasses, banana and fruits. Trinidad Island citrus and spices with a touch of vanilla that comes from the oak barrel its aged in. Give this rum rating a 7 plus. Cheers
