Recommendable to most
I love this rum. A little funky, a little sweet, some nice tropical fruit notes. Very smooth. Makes a fantastic daiquiri.
A nice rum for mixing higher end drinks. I don't think I would make a Ti'Punch with it but it's has a nice nose and is quite tasty.
I have to make sure that I always have a bottle of this on hand at all times. It's incredible. Lots of hogo. Lots of funk. It's missing the caramels and vanilla from the long aging, but it's my favorite to sip neat or mix in a cocktail. I recommend it to everyone all the time. Haven't heard a bad review yet!
I don't think there is much point in going for other whites, especially since in my country this is in the same price range as the Havana white.
Ps: go straight for the 1L
Massive amounts of citrus, banana and sugar cane on the nose. Sweet vanilla and sugary fruity (natural) flavors go down easy with no burn. I am shocked how tasty this is for a white rum. Very complex and truly an easy sipper. Definitely a bargain for the price point -- I will definitely be keeping this on my bar cart from now on.
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.
