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.
I’ve heard many good things about this plantation XO and to be honest I’m a bit dissapointed. I had real high expectations about this one. I bought this bottle over a year ago and it has been sitting on the top shelf of my mini bar since. It’s definitely one of the nicest looking bottles i’ve seen and it took me a long time to decide whether I wanted to open it and when I did it was not as good as I expected. Its for sure a good quality rum, very tasty and a bit sweet but I feel like there is something missing. Overall is good but I’ve tried better.
Poured neat, it's very light on the nose with just a hint of buttery toffee and caramel. The first sip has a heavy mouthfeel with a warm flavor that travels from the middle of the tongue to the back of the throat. It leaves behind just a little heat, and flavors of rum and caramel apple. I like it best with just one ice cube with brings out a bit more of that caramel apple flavor that I could drink all night. This is a great sipper!
Zajímavej rum, ušlechtilost, nemůžu si pomoct ale vůně/chuť všude kokosy...ano baví mě to.
Actually it is one of the very good balance between sweetness and flavor. Also a decent price for this interesting rum..
You can feel the power already from the odour, but the taste will make you sure, strong body with sweet aftertaste
Den här var söt och len. Kola och kokos. Blir sällan besviken på Plantation.
Damn near perfect. One of the finest rums I've ever had the pleasure of enjoying, fantastic sipper. A wonderfully balanced rum with just the right amount of sweetness and thick caramel finish.
This rum is just dreamy. Complex and evident at the same time. Great fruity fragrance and deep colourful flavours through and through. So much going for it and clearly blended by able hands with a great experience in mind for the rum drinker. It is readily available, reasonably priced in comparison to others in its class, in fact it punches up four or five price classes without batting an eye.
The best rum i ever tasted, well balanced with a great taste of vanilla.
Smooth sipping rum. Great value. Don’t spoil it with cola.
Sehr ausbalancierter weicher Rum mit vielen verschiedenen Noten. Tolle kräftige Farbe und ein wunderschönes Aroma.
Wow. Very strong apricot in the middle and I was getting hints of blackberry on the finish.
Each sip brings new flavour and it makes a wonderful addition to the cabinet.
Smooth, no excessive burn. Great as a sipper or with ice. Like liquid brown sugar, just beautiful for my pallete and the best I've tasted thus far.
So it's sweet vanilla banana with toasted coconut. That's what's up. And cane sugar 🤔
Way better than expected for some one who genert finds Barbados rumb bit dull.
One if my top 5 sipping rums. Very smooth with notes of molasses and banana. Please...never mix this beauty with ice
This pairs well with a Nica Libre Toro 1990 cigar. Just pour it over some ice and enjoy.
Nose is vanilla and tropic fruits... banana
Buttery Xmas spices on the palate with a lovely roasted finish that lingers. Sugared up the wazoo, but a guaranteed crowd pleaser
The bottle is a precious one, I really like it. But the content inside is even better. A very easy-to-drink rum with just the right amount of sweetness (and I do like sweet rums), vanilla (and more) taste and a long, great finish. Always worth a sip!
Out of all the rums I've tried, this has to be my favorite by far. Very smooth, not too many sweet tastes. Definitely a hint of vanilla on the palate and no harsh alcohol tastes. Definitely top of my "will buy again" list.
Excellent choice for a cold evening by a fire. Wonderfully full nose. On the body, slight sweetness and just a hint of oak. Not overly complex. Pleasant finish. Overall a nice experience.
I would say that this rum is the best, if you find a better , tell me.
This is a rum i really like, tasted this one on my bachelor party what an amazing taste and the look of the plantation bottle amazing
...all time favorites. I know sugar has been added, but hey the destiller plays with open cards and is not trying to hide any information. In addition Plantation is one of my favorite brands and this also because they know what they are doing!
