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.
This rum is darn good. For price you can't beat it. I prefer to sip Zacapa Solera, Diplomatico Reserva Exclusive and Rumson's Grand Reserve, but anytime I am looking for something good and at a value this is it. I recommend this and Rumson's Grand Reserve rum more than any other rum's out there. Plantation for great taste and value and Rumson's Grand Reserve as just the best sipper I have had.
For the price you can buy it blind. The reserva 2000 will have less strength but more flavor. The XO is one of my favorite by combining both strentgh and all flavors
This rhum is One of the least expensive in the Plantation family but it's very good. Finished in Cognac casks, it doesn' t have the extreme smoothness of the XO 20th anniversary, but you can find the complexity of sweet vanilla and sugarcane molasses and spices in it's taste and aromas.
Un rhum pas cher mais avec une richesse aromatique incroyable !
En helt ok rom.
Grande Reserve works in drinks, on the rocks, with cola or straight up as a sipping rum.
Nice product, spectactular in mouth, good quality for price.
I like the aroma, the rich vanilla aftertaste and the price! Delicious 20 year old rum at a very reasonable price.
“Mon amie laissez le bon temps rouler!”
Went in to the local shop to pick up another bottle of the Kirk & Sweeney and was persuaded to try this. Similar but different in all the right ways. Delicious especially after an ice cube is dropped in. Later Tried the 20th Anniversary XO and have found true love with that one. Nice work Plantation!
Great Rum for the price ! 2 Rocks with 2 fingers ! Smooth with a great finish for me ? It' s the one you to family !
Vom Alter her mag man nicht viel von diesem Rum erwarten, aber er überraschte mich positiv.
Sehr angenehmer Rum den man auch wunderbar pur genießen kann. Ich trinke ihn allerdings lieber mit Cola. Der Caramell Geschmack ist bestimmt nicht jedermanns Sache, aber ich mag einfach die Leichtigkeit dieses Rums.
Light golden, sweet, caramel rum with some vanilla and banana aroma. Goes down easily. I have a soft spot for barbados rum.
Kjøpt på polet
Nice light golden brown color. Sweet caramel aroma. Smooth sweet caramel tones smooth going down. A must for those who have not tried it.
I found this a little heavy on the vanilla.
Beautiful color,great nose, great taste. Vanilla is much present.
This is something to try. As far as i have tasted Plantation rums, this is the best value rum. It is bit too sweet but really nice on the rocks. If you have tasted on Plantation you have tasted them all, if we talk about aged rums.
22 g/ltr of added sugar according to the Swedish national list. Despite having half the sugar of El Dorado 12 yr, it seems sweeter to me. Still a nice rum for $15 I paid for it, with a decent robust flavor that is not overwhelmed by the added sugar.
If you want to see what this is like without the added sugar, try Doorly's 5 yr.
A nice sipping rum and also a nice mixer even though a bit too mild for tiki drinks but for a daiquiri it´s good. Mild, sweet, vanilla...and smooth.
This rum is great for shots as it is very light, mild,sweet, with obvious hints of vanilla. This rum gave me a slight hangover so it must have artificial chemicals/additives in it to enhance flavor.
Very mild, with a delicate & noble sweetness, this is one of my most favorite light rums so far. Really very nice and enjoyable! Goes well straight or on the rocks, also has great taste with cola.
This rum is my favorite at this time, great taste, good value, and it is good straight up and mixed as long as you keep the mix light!
Fin lille smag, ikke dårlig som sådan, Men bliver nok fremover brugt som mixer, heller ikke særlig dyr.
Ikke et genkøb.
This is a very easy rum to sip. The flavor is light and sweet with the burn being a bit stronger than the taste. This may be a nice rum for those just starting to enjoy it neat.
