Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I was looking for demerera toffiness in this fum, but I have discovered weird brandy aroma with column still density in my glass. It doesn't worth it's money for its weak taste and strong brandy aroma, that breaks through the mix (if you mixing it in a tiki cocktail)
The better Guyana rums are El Dorado 12 and 15 for mixing and sipping respectivly.
I were You, rumlover, i would try to avoid this one
Cильный, насыщенный аромат с нотками солёного сала, жду чего-то в стиле сент-люсии, но вкус более традиционный, с дубом, лёгкими нотками обожжённого дерева, цитрусовыми и маслянистостью, достаточно сладок, весьма неплохо. 8/10
Until Fiji, Peru and St. Lucia come to my province.
Sweet plums into light pears that are quickly overwhelmed by the potent burn. It tastes young. I havent had many young vs old rum comparisons side by side but I feel as though with this rum they tried it, went "oh wow plums" and then decided to call it there. As I continue to drink, however, Ive decided that this is one of those rums that I typically dont have enough patience to truely appreciate. It really keeps evolving long after you swallow. After being stumped by a fruit flavour of the extraordinarily long after taste, I decided to read the bottle, something I usually do at the end of the review as to no colour my perception. Unfortunately, the bottle did not tell me what that fruit flavour was, and I am afraid I may never find out. The bottle did, however say that its taste could last up to 10 minutes. It lied. I was on minute fifteen before I decided to search for the name of that fruit flavour. Several types of grapes and that elusive fruit last in the mouth for what feels like forever. Truly excellent once you get accustomed to the burn and discover its lasting aftertaste.
P.s. Theres nothing quite like the cork of a full bottle of plantation
Reasonably soft rum with unique flavour. Worth a second purchase.
Quite soft for a potstill. Vanilla-buttery-burned caramel
A bit rubbery smell on the start, semi sweet entrance and a weird mixture of different flavors at the end for the Plantation Guyana 1999. Plantation offers some amazing rums, unfortunately this is not one of them.
Neat and sweet (but not overly sweet) with a long lasting aftertaste. Easily enjoyable.
The Plantation Guyana 1999 Rum is a pot distilled, Demerara rum which is produced from molasses using an extra long fermentation period prior to distillation. The rum is first aged in Guyana in used bourbon barrels after which it is transported from Jamaica to France by Cognac Ferrand to be finished in their own warehouses and of course their own Cognac Casks. It has a spicy character with a good balance between the hot wood spices and the butterscotch/toffee sweetness.
Good product of Plantation, but not the best. Gold colour, nice long aftertaste.
Virkelig god kompleksitet og bestemt ikke en pleaser. - fin underspillet sødme som vi kender det fra guyana, blandet med røg. Super rom!
Auxhmit ddiesem Plantation kannst du alles mach. Super Rum.
Rom med noter af røg. Den har en blød eftersmag. Favoritten fra platation er dog stadig 20 anno´en.
Like almost all plantation rums a solid choice. Can't help it but I do like their products.
Endnu en rom med noter af røg.
Den er blød og rund, men eftersamgen af røg dur bare ikke for mig.
Alkohol: 45 %
Aroma: Těžce květinová vůně s kůží a lesním medem, k tomu máta a rumové pralinky. Těžší a hutnější typ vůně, starý nábytek, zemitost. (86 b)
Chuť: Velmi pěkná, dřevitě medová, sametová, jemná a zároveň plná chuť. (88 b)
Shrnutí: Velmi příjemná záležitost. Ochutnán v Hořicích u josého během jedné ze dvou říjnových degustací.
Bottle: Plain and normal 0/1
Colour: Light amber
Aroma: Rich. Fruity. 1/2
Taste: It is not so sweet as other Plantation rums and I feel a little bit like drinking whiskey but still there are some fruit remnants. It is strong on taste of alcohol. 3/5
Aftertaste: Not smooth but not unpleasant 1/2
Not my favourite one but still good. A little bit too strong for me.
Good nice aroma
Unclear whether earlier versions of the "Guyana" Plantation bottles were mislabeled... GUYANA is the western most of the three Guyanas; GUYANE - on the other side of Suriname about 200 miles to the southeast - is what locals call French Guiana. Around 2009 I was picking up bottles of "Guyana" Plantation but the map pointed to Frech Guyana/Guyane. So, who knows what I was drinking. It was good, either way! Have yet to taste a Plantation bottle I didn't like, come to think of it. This seems very similar to El Dorado 12 and I have a running suspicion it was simply repackaged ED12. Who knows. No complaints, regardless.
