This is how a white rum should taste. Aged. Nuanced. Easy to mix with other runs and flavors. This rum has backbone and flavor. I’ll go between this and Havana club as my white mixers.
Now this is a quality light rum. Its main virtue is its versatility. Goes well with anything that goes with rum, makes especially great daiquiris and unlike most light rums, it can also be sipped without being offensive or hard to drink. Like most of the Plantation line, it's well balanced. However, do consider its jack of all trades, master of none nature when buying, because aged rums are better for sipping (and Plantation's own 5-year isn't that much more expensive than the 3 Star), and most light rums are almost as good for mixing and cost less.
One of my favorite things about exploring all the different types and styles of rums is being surprised by so many aspects of it. The versatility. The flavors. The affordability of most rums. The vast differences there can be in the same styles/types of rums.
This rum was a joy to discover and taste. I'm not going to get into all the details of the nose, flavors, mouthfeel etc. on this one as I think the Plantation website nails it pretty good. Three star is just a fun, flavorful and enjoyable experience whether you are new to rums or have tried 'em all. I would be happy sipping this neat or having it in a daquiri or other tiki cocktails.
I recently shared some of this rum with a few friends (which all of them love good bourbons and scotches) who had never gotten into rums much outside of an occasional mojito or cuba libre. Each one of them were blown away at the flavors and nuances of this simple, low-priced bottle of rum and wanted seconds.
Throw away your preconceptions of white rums and give this a try!
This is a welcome surprise for Mojitos and daiquiris. I seldom drink white rums but so much better than Bacardi for classic mixed drinks my wife loves. Will try it as classic Ti Paunch.
Nice color, smell and taste. Sweet, smooth, (vanilla, molasses). Is very drinkable.
For me the best white rum I have drunk. I recommend it!
i dont exactly know whats going on here but this stuff is the best white rum i've ever had. tastes great pure as well as a mixer. great stuff with a great price
