Solid barbados rum. Very serviceable sipping rum, and a strong mixer (good corn -n oil). Like most plantation rums (standard line) its an excellent value.

This is the type of rum that works as a sipper as well as for drinks. Not a top rum but a very good allrounder. Nice taste of vanilla but a little bit too much taste of alcohol.

It’s like single cane has met danish navy rum. Just the perfect sweet and perfect bitty.

Den funkar helt okej som en vardagsrom för att stilla sina smaklökar, räcker till och med med några droppar i köttmarinaden.
Påminner lite om XO:n fast lite tunnare.

Finally managed to find some Plantation Rum in South Africa! Absolutely amazing! Definitely has similar notes to the Plantation XO and very smooth, rich mouth feel! Vanilla scented, rich dark taste - this is exactly what rum should taste like!!!

Egentligen ingen drickrom utan en blandform men i brist på annat går den sippa på med stor mängd is. Prisvärd , bra att blanda med och bra doft.

If you vanilla you will like this. Definitely has some oak to it too but really got vanilla with first sip. Easy to drink, easy finish. You can share this rum anywhere with anyone, especially your recently divorced buddy Doug

Color: 4/5, nice light color. Nose: 8/10, very mild hints of coconut.
Taste: 16/20. Very round taste; dies a bit quick.
Really good value for money.

moderately good rhum character but so much added sugar it drinks like a syrup
