Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Plantation Barbados 5-Year rum is distilled from molasses and aged 5 years in bourbon casks before being transported to France for further 'finishing' in Cognac casks.
Plantation rum is owned by the French company Cognac Ferrand, which was founded in 1989 and produces wine, gin, and other spirits to sell in over 40 countries. The Plantation range includes 7 vintages from different Caribbean countries and 3 blends of multiple regions.
Für den recht günstigen Preis und die vielen großen Brüder in der Plantation Familie war ich positiv überrascht. Vielleicht nicht der Mildeste, aber durchaus ein gelungener Rum.
I find nothing at all wrong with this rum. It has minimal sugar. No Solera which people complain about. It doesn’t just taste like oak wood tea. It’s 40% which is fine. I’m not using it to strip paint. It’s finished off in France. I love cognac. It has a beautiful color, nose and palate. I love it. Even in the morning neat. Like now. I’ve had it in my Stok cold brew coffee and milk which is also fine. After trying American whiskeys, scotches, Irish whiskeys and other rums, this is at the moment top of my list.
Una grata sorpresa, buen sabor con ligero dulce, se presta para tomarlo solo o con dos cubos de hielo. Buen ron en mi opinión.
Not too sweet. Nice grass, banana, and oak flavors.
Another one to always have on the shelf, very good value for money. Oak, toffee and vanilla taste but beautifully entwined.
Se nota que se dedicaba al coñac, tiene un montón de sabor y aunque se nota el alcohol no es duro.....desde luego no lo mezclaría y el precio también está muy bien 15'95€.
I found this rum to be overly sweet and syrupy when drunk neat.
It’s got a thick mouth feel, not ideal when drinking a rum.
This is best mixed and cut down with a splash of carbonated water.
Cheeky little brother of the XO. If you dont want to pay to much for a rum.. please get this one! Its a sipper or you can use it as a mixer
Best value I think. I can get a bottle for 21.99 and this is my daily supper. Smooth as smooth can be. Oh sooo buttery! The numbness on the tongue followed by a soothing warmth that never disappoints. I only drink this neat. For me, this is the best rum at this price point.
Go Pack Go!!!
Rum ratings pulls through again. First time I've seen this in the local liquor store, checked the ratings on here and decided to give it a shot...a shot... Get it? Haha I'm hilarious.
Anywho, pretty easy sipper, has a bit of a burn but in a good way. Hint of sweetness. El Dorado 12 has been my go-to for a while but I do find it a bit sweet, this rum might be my next new favorite. Give it a shot!
Very aromatic that it almost makes you forget it's alcohol. Once you sip this bad boy however you'll forget that notion real quick. Great, affordable sipping rum. You can mix it but your ancestors will torpedo in their grave.
To match a Montecristo i chose this 5 years and it was an excelent surprise, with just a ice rock this Plantation was rich and tasty. More than a pretty face , despite the light color, i consider this rum very complete for the price.
16 g/L is not the idea of a Barbados Rum. #savebarbadosrum
Very solid for the price. Smells much stronger then it really is. Wish it was a little more flavorful
Awesome non-spiced rum. Definitely worth drinking neat to appreciate the complexity of flavors it has to offer. My favorite "regular" rum. It's pretty affordable, too. Keep this one on your shelves!
Smooth for a 5 year. Reasonable price, good daily rum.
Actually one of two plantation that where disapointing. if you take it to mix it should be ok
It is definitely aged. You will notice it just from first sip. Sweet enough with taste of wood and flowers. Rich taste and smell. Just set 8 for its smell, really like it. Really good aftertaste.
For something aged for only 5 years it has more flavour than you'd expect. Not my greatest but definitely a good runner.
Rather pleasant and mellow rum. Good as a sipper or mixer.
Had a great week and topped it off by picking up this little bottle of deliciousness, banana and pineapple undertone to it. Quite whiskey like I thought, nice warm aftertaste. One down now I can see a few more before the evenings out!
Maybe a little rugged for sipping, this is an exceptional mixer...probably my favorite mixer overall considering the value which pushes this towards an 8.
Slightly sweet vanilla flavor with a light alcohol burn. Great value for the price.
My 3rd review and this is the best one I’ve had so far! Rated it 8 as I’m sure there are better ones out there and I reserved the 9 and 10 for those. Very smooth! Just hints of sweetness...just enough to make you want another shot to catch it again! Many thanks for all the reviews here that led me to this tasty bottle!
