Plantation XO 20th Anniversary rum

Plantation XO 20th Anniversary

Caribbean | Aged

Plantation XO 20th Anniversary rum is a combination of pot-stilled and column-stilled Barbadian rums that are initially aged in the Caribbean in ex-bourbon casks for 12-20 years. They are then transported to France for a second 12-18 months aging in small French oak casks.

The first bottle of Plantation XO 20th Anniversary was created for the head of Cognac Ferrand Estate Alexandre Gabriel to honor his 20th year running the company. This special gift has resulted in the bottling we see today.

Smooth, hints of vanilla, oak, and spice. Easy to drink neat.

We were surprised by this one. It gets very high ratings but we found it to be light in flavor or personality and so so high in alcohol fumes! It’s intense, not smooth with quite a bite. Made into a rum old fashioned it was just ok.

What is there to say that hasn't already been said? I am not a big fan of sweeter rums but my wife is. Papa's Pilar and Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva being a couple of her favorites. So, picked up a bottle of this to try and all I can say is WOW! This has so much going on in the aroma and flavor palette that it is a party for your tastebuds. There are all kinds of tastes and hints of toasted coconut, toffee, orange, vanilla, warm baking spices, and so much more. The oak is there but very subtle and the finish is long and yet very smooth, not too sweet but definitely not dry either.
This drinks above its price point for sure. Heavily recommended for sipping neat or with a cube of ice or in an Old Fashioned. Way too good to mix.
Go get you some!

I don’t love the funk of most Plantation rums, but this one is a really good sipper.

Not too sweet, not too dry. Very nice balanced flavor and very smooth. This will be a regular for my rum cabinet.

For me it's too light in taste, but nice. Here in "RumRatinhs" Zacapa 23 has lower rating than this rum, I defenitly prefer Zacapa 23 than Plantation XO 20th Anniversary.

Where do I even start. This rum is an experience. Dynamically different than Plantation 5 year.
There's a buttery mouth feel to the rum which is very pleasant, surely reminiscet of the bourbon barrels used for aging.
It's Highly aromatic, very smooth and well worth the purchase. The nose is beautiful, you get heavy toasted coconut, banana, and vanilla.
The flavor is Intense. Deep sweet notes of coconut and molasses, complimented by a fruity smokey finish (mango and oak). Definitely enjoy neat. Just be careful you don't finish the bottle. It's that good!

Plantation XO is top notch!

V aroma jsou cítit květiny a hodně ovoce, vanilka. Barva krásne jantarova. Není tak sladký jak bych čekal. Příjemne jemný a pitelny rum.

Plantation hit the mark with this offering. The taste is complex without a very sweet taste.

Virkelig dejlig rom, helt klart et genkøb hvis er til en lidt sødere rom med dumlesmag!
