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.
Very tasty but too sweet for me as a sipper. I most likely won’t be buying this again. I’ll only reach for this if I’m making a cocktail that needs both sweetness AND rum. Love the aesthetics of the bottle though.
My wife and I picked up a bottle of this Plantation offering in a small grocery store on Anguilla, and sipped it over ice and lime on the balcony of our hotel room. Light enough to sip with food, but has enough body to stand up to the ice. It might’ve been the view, or this might just be a solid Caribbean grocery store rum.
Many reviews say its mixing rum but I enjoyed it straight and it has nice after taste with touch of vanilla and caramel, not too sweet but obvs not as good as 20 xo ;)
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.
