Much like the Grande Reserve but two years older i believe. Pefect everyday rum, cheap and tasty.

You can't go Wrong with this one. If you are just getting in to rum i would say Barbados is Where I started. For a beginner this is a great rum both neat or in cocktails. When that is said, i believe this has a spot on any rum Shelf. Allthough og you have been drinking rum a lang time, this might lack in depth. Therefor, i World recommend it to all, hence the 7.

Way too aggressive. Maybe in drinks, but as a sipping rum its a no.

This was my introduction to Plantation Rum and I was pleasantly surprised! Very smooth with the expected vanilla notes, with the influence of the cognac barrels coming through in the finish. Complex enough to sip and enjoy without ice.

Plantation 5 year is in every way the budget version of the Plantation 20th anniversary (which is one of my favorite rums) . Same balanced flavor profile with sweetness, a bit of alcohol and fruity taste, all the while not being overwhelmingly skewed toward any of them. Surprisingly good for sipping considering the price range. It's very well priced and a personal favorite of mine when looking to save some money or buying as a gift for friends.

It reminds me of the Barbados 20 year old, but it isn't as full as that one. It doesn't stick to the mouth as long... But then again, I didn't pay half as much either, so it's balanced after all.

Rund, weich, leicht wärmend alkoholisch, moderate Süße mit leichter Bitternote.

Etwas zu viel Schärfe, aber mit Geschmack. Um den Preis OK, aber könnte mehr sein...

Clear bright Amber in colour. A light nose with hints of toasted sugars. A perfectly balanced flavour with a bit of sweetness, age and vanilla. Very smooth neat and better without ice. At $45 Can, i expected a mixer but got much more. I bet it is an excellent mixer too.
