Tasty, but not quite great
I had a chance to try out the Plantation Jamaica 2000 and 2001 back-to-back and they both have a very weird rubber smell to them. Maybe it's the Jamaica Glue which other reviews are referring to. It is offputting to start with and the taste test does not convince me either. There is surprisingly strong burn at the end, which the Plantation Jamaica 2001 did not have at all. Jamaica 2000 deserves a 5, and it's only marginally worse than the Jamaica 2001 which scores a low 6.
The tastes are not flavorful. The burn in the nose and harsh, bland taste is difficult to sift through. I took a chance on this and Trinidad 2001.. The latter was worth it, this was not. It'll probably just be used for a back up mixer or I'll store it and hope oxidation makes it taste better. I did have Mexican food prior to so maybe that played a part.. I'm reaching for straws at this point I know. Anywho if you already know Jamaican flavors of rum I say go for it, you might like it.. for me it's not a sipper and needs alot of additives to get me to grab it off my bar shelf
Διακριτικό άρωμα μπανάνας, τόσο γλυκό όσο πρέπει,σωστή ένταση στο αλκοόλ, ευχάριστο , γι αυτούς που έχουν δοκιμάσει κι άλλα .... απλά έχει γεύση Plantation λίγο πιο καπνιστή θα έλεγα και πιο έντονη από το 5αρι.
Δεν είχε όμως μακρυά επίγευση και πολύ δυνατή μύτη. ενώ (επειδή ήπιαμε όλο το μπουκάλι με τη μία) θα ενστερνιστώ την άποψη του Φίλου μου του Κώστα , ότι από ένα σημείο και μετά γίνεται βαρετό !!!!!! Δεν σε ενθουσιάζει ώστε να το "χλαπακιάσεις"..........7- θα έλεγα ....
Questo rum è una delusione, dopo aver assaggiato la complessita del Jamaica 2001 Old Reserve, questo 2000 Old Reserve sembra solamente alcool mischiato con zucchero senza nessuna emozone. Bevibile ma peccato che manca nel profumo che poi non si amalgama con il sapore.
in germany we know the taste of jamaica as original rum. it is in all baked goods if it is coming with rum aroma. this plantation rum is pure jamaica. with a sweet kick. here you find the origin of rum with a full load of heavy aroma and taste. has a very long aftertaste.
I was excited to try this, typical Plantation presentation, great aromas, however the first taste was sharp and not what I was expecting. Whilst pondering why I felt let down the after taste kicked in and saved the day with its warm spicy fruit flavours to recover what was going to be disappointment. Nicely hidden.
