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.
Schmeckt erwachsen für sein Alter.
Leicht und unbeschwert in der Nase und Gaumen.
Im Vordergrund dominante Vanillearomen gefolgt von Karamell und Früchten.
Abgang ganz ok.
Ein Rum für alle Tage. Nicht zu süss.
Tastes great for his age.
Easy and carefree in the nose and palate.
In the foreground dominant vanilla aromas followed by caramel and fruit.
Finish quite ok.
A rum for all days. Not too sweet.
I love this rum. I always have a bottle somewhere around. It makes a lovely drink. However, sipping leaves something to be desired. It has the usual off-smell of some rums, but it leans less on the interesting side of things and more on the "im-smelling-the-inside-of-a-balloon" side of things. Also, if you are going to be using this for mixing drinks, and supplementing your sipping rum with something else, then it would be better to choose a cheaper rum to mix and a higher quality sipper to buy. Just my two cents.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
