Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Somewhat less sweet than my El Dorado 3 year and nothing is as sweet as the Prichard’s Crystal, but this is currently my third white rum on my bar counter at all times. Just like El Dorado, I have run thru most of the Plantation rums that are readily available. Of all the brands I have tried over the years, those are the only two where I have tried most of what they offer – and continue to enjoy most of what they offer.
A full-flavored, multi-dimensional light rum. Very different from your average, vodka-like light rum which has been mass-produced in factories. It's actually pretty tasty straight up, but mixed with lime and sugar and ice, it makes outstanding classic Daiquiris. Wonderful.
A good "white" rum no doubt, and perhaps the best value you can get in this catagory. The nose is fresh and fruity with notes of pineapple, grass, citrus and molasse. Sipped neat, the fairly smooth palette brings notes of vanilla, citrus, pineapple and a bit of barrel. It has a great balance, and it's one of the few white rums I sincerely enjoy neat. Obviously it's killer in cocktails.
Clean, but not too dry with a smooth light sweet citrus flavor. In my home it's 15 to 1 dark rum to white rum, but Plantation 3 Stars stil earns a regular turn in the glass. Affordable, sippable, mixable. white rum. Well done.
sugar test- 12g
I give it only a rating of 7 as i enjoy my rums straight up,even without an icecube. To me, a rum needs to be enjoyable that way. Well,if i'd rate white rums it would be a 10! Despite its young age its an excellent rum,in the nose a bit medical,but in the mouth and throat a great,sweety rum .Sugar cane,honey,a very little bite. Let's don't forget ,this isn't a white rum,it's aged 3years and filtered so it lost its original(probably straw-yellow) color. I did't mix it,but it probably is the bomb . I enjoy it pure and am impressed.For this price,go for it,either way you won't be disappointed. Probably a perfect mixer and if you fancy to try a white rum straight up-this is the way it should be
I had the pleasure of tasting this for the first time in the Bahamas at Rum Bahamas. It won 1st place for the whites there for good reason. It is very clean and tastes great. I have loved each release from Plantation, but was curious how they would do whites. I was not disappointed.
Bit like Havana club 3 years. Nothing special but good with cola and ice
Interesting as a white rum, but it's not a true white rum in reality.
Easy to sip. Tastes flowery but lack length. Very short.
Tried this out recently as a replacement for Mount Gay Eclipse and I have to say it blows it out of the water. It has a great aroma and an enjoyable, satisfying, complex flavor that works perfectly in scorpion bowls. The color is a nice bonus as well, as it is less likely to contribute to the muddy color some tiki drinks can develop. This is an absolute bar staple for me now.
Personalmente, lo he dejado para mezclar, tiene bastante sabor pero no todo es el precio en un ron y aunque no pasó de los 10€, los hay bastante mejores a ese nivel.
This rum is well balanced and approachable. It’s not as flavorful as an overproof jamaican, but it has at least some depth of flavor from the blend and is extremely smooth. Solid overall rum
This $30 white rum would be perfect if you are an Appleton fan. It has a spicey Jamaican nose with ripe bananas. It can be sipped but would be best in a cocktail. I am a big fan of Plantation rums but a little too much Jamaican funk for me
Decent rum that works very well both as a mixing rum and neat.
Definitely the best white rum in its price range. A must for every bar. Taste like candy in cola. Stand between a mixer and a sipper.
Delicious sweetness. Only had 1 shot so far, but would absolutely have with the barest of other flavorings to let the rum shine thru.
It's pretty sweet with a honey after taste, not bad for basically a blanco/blonde.
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.
En trevlig vit rom med mycket smak och doft. Imponerande
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
