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.
Now this is some good stuff
I'm just not getting what others love about this rum apparently. It's good. In my area it's almost $70 USD a bottle, not worth it at that price point.
Heard some stories about this one and after seeing the high rating it gave it a try. But I was disappointed...not bad, but far from such a good rating.
The alcohol taste and nose is to heavy and you can't really feel it good.
Overall I think this rum is very good, has a nice balance and is not overly sweet. However for the $52 price point in ChicGo there’s other rums I prefer (Centenario 20 for example). Nonetheless this is definitely a crowd pleaser and I don’t think you can go wrong.
Light copper-ochre colour.
Medium intense nose with aroma's of smoke, orange peel, caramel and a small hint of vanilla.
Smooth on the palate with powerful concentrated flavours.
Aroma's of caramel, sugar cane, orange peel and vanilla.
Very long finish and perfectly balanced. Flavours are in perfect harmony with each other
For me this is one of the best rums I have tasted so far
