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.
Really good rum with a lot of flavor. The taste of coconut shines through. I would buy it again when empty though.
Bought this one based on the reviews on this site, have to say it is really really good. It has a complex flavor profile without being too much in any area. Very smooth sipper with a rewarding aftertaste.
It seems commercial impression of rum is sweet and smooth or spiced. That usually mean's added flavours and sugar.
It's drinkable and could be said it's good, but it's less rum.
I've got the old bottle, not this new shape one, but I bet it's likely the same.
To me there are two groups of rum fan's, one for sweets and another for pure rums. And those are not comparable in any ways.
It's a very sweety rhum. very nice without agressivity. But this rhum is a little to coco flavour for me.
Bought this on recommendation of Mario from the United States who is a member on here.
Very smooth sipper with no throat burn. Very long lasting after taste.
Gave it a 9 only cause it's just not as great as El Dorado 21 or Diplomatico 2000 Single Vintage.
De un color pardo y aroma dulce, este ron puede tomarse en las rocas sin problemas, sin peligro que su sabor sea demasiado invasivo
VERY VERY ENJOYABLE. Not to sweet no burn just great tasting.
this is an amazing rum. So glad I was able to find a bottle. When I first poured it into my glass it pours like a honey liqueur. Smells of vanilla, spice, and cask waft to the nose. With a tilt of the glass legs galore reach back to the rest. After the first sip I am hooked. I will always have a bottle or two of this in my bar. It is all here, a complex balance I have not tasted in a rum before now. It is even better than my beloved Vizcaya.
Love this rum. As well as the vanilla, I get a huge hit of coconut on the nose and the first taste. Smooth and sweet, bright and fruity. While flavourful, it isn't heavy or thick. Also, at $40, it's one of the best value bottles.
Det er nok en af de bedste rom jeg har i min samling, ikke for sød og en dejlig eftersmag.
Lige som jeg kan lide den.
I never tasted a rum from Barbados before, and many positive ratings everywhere made me curious and my expectations been also very high. Well,i wasn't disappointed,its even better as i ever thought. In the nose : like a casket full of fresh tropical fruits,mango,banana. In the mouth it literally explodes,the tiny bite is overwhelmed with the complex fruity flavours. Tasty and a must have
Truly a gem of rums!
Affordable, smooth and sweet.
fles: 70cl en prachtig uitgevoerd.
aroma, karamel, tropisch fruit en hout.
smaak: caramel, mango, kokos en vanille.
nasmaak: lang, eerst zoetig dan droog.
Uitstekende rum. Een echte aanrander.
24/29 gr/liter suiker toegevoegd. 2 punten er af met zo'n prijs.
Woaw, I had good and bad bottles from plantation (the Jamaican single cask 1998 is undrinkable) but this one is the next best thing I had from them (Barbados single cask 2000 beats it).
A very nice looking bottle, and a sweet and rich taste, not too mouth burning that makes it an easy drink. It has a strong taste and smell of coconut with notes of chocolate, I call it the bounty rhum.
The bottle comes in a nice box and the bittle itself is really nice.
This rum smells fantastic, your be greeted with carmel and coconut reminding me of a Caribbean holiday.
This is a sipping rum and you will have to remind yourself that your drinking rum instead of cognac.
This is a fantastic rum and I would not turn down a glass mixing this would be a crime. Just add ice if you need to pair it with anything.
One of my favourites.
Great touch of coconut in aftertaste and perfect smoothness,not so sweet not so dry. Recommending to have it.
Denne Rom bør smages. Lidt frugtsmag, dejlig eftersmag og god duft. Bør være i din Rom samling.
Medium dry to slightly sweet, smooth with good flavor.
Velmi dobrý rum. Měl jsem kromě ročníkových Plantation Grande Réserve i Plantation Guatemala Gran Anejo - oba byly dobré, ale tento je překonal.
Plantation 20th Anniversary je namíchán z nejstarších rumů společnosti, zraje nejprve v Karibiku v sudech po bourbonu, poté jsou převezeny do Francie kde zrají dalších 12-18 měsíců.
Alkohol: 40 %
Aroma: Hodně uhlazená vůně. Vanilka, snad i pomeranče (až mi místy připomíná Pyrat XO reserve), lehce kůže a hlavně kokos. (85 b)
Chuť: Nádherně jemná, mírně sladká chuť, kde se postupně vynořuje kokos a koření. (91 b)
Shrnutí: Jeden z těch rumů, které by jste neměli minout.
Bottle : This bottle is also beautiful. It has a exclusive look, easy to access with it´s big cap and nice weight to it.
Nose : The scent if full of vanilla and sugar.
Taste : Big full and rich taste of what i believe is a nice rum, rich with raisins and vanilla.
Finish : Strong finish which slowly evolves in separate tones.
This rum is a great medium priced Plantation rum.
It has a good full taste and is sweet enough for my sweet taste.
It is a good place for you to start if you are new to Plantation, as I was this spring.
I have since bought a more expensive Plantation single cask rum - and I am sure I will buy more bottles from this fine brand soon.
Great looking bottle if you can live with the plastic'ish top - I can.
Vanilla, chocolate and coconut flavours well assembled with nuts and oak because of the old rums. Not sweet because of the young alcoholed rums. It provides an awesome blend which appears to be my best rum so far.
