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.
Nice caramel nose. Maybe a quick initial alcohol bite but quickly moves to a smooth mid and finishing taste. Light caramel vanilla flavor with varying degrees of coconut influence at different tastings. I can see where some would gravitate to it but I prefer the Diplomatico Reserva Oder it and feel both are outclassed by the Ron Centenario 25
Veľká, mohutná, ťažká fľaša poctivého a dobre vyváženého rumu. Pochádza z Barbadosu a je namiešaný zo zmesí rumov starých 12-20 rokov. V pohári zlatistá až mahagónová farba, po pár minútach sa rozvinú tóny kakaa, vanilky, pomarančov, medovice. Veľmi vyvážená voňa, každý si v nej nájde niečo svoje, či už sladšie, alebo korenistejšie. Jedna z najlepších rumových aróm. U mňa za vôňu 9,5 boda. Chuť je tak isto komplexná, veľmi hladký rum s kratším chvostom. Pri prvom kontakte na jazyku zacítite jeho sladkosť, potom sa rozvinú korenistejšie chute a na záver môžete zacítiť aj dubový súdok. Takto by mal podľa mňa chutiť dobrý aged rum a podľa neho by sa mohli porovnávať kvality ostatných rumov. Výborná voľba. Prudko odporúčam.
wow exquisito, nuez moscada, canela,vainilla y clavo lleno de roble que es maravilloso,con un posgusto largo y delicado.recomendodo 100%
Maybe on the sweet side, but very smooth. One of my favorites. Loving it!
Change in bottle design but still the same great quality you would expect from the Plantation fine line of rums. Very flavorful and complex without the burn or syrupy cough medicine taste. Pleasing on the palate a sensational rum to enjoy neat!
Should not be without this rum in your collection!
Sampled Plantation XO 20th anniversary Rum eventhough I knew it was a sweet Rum. It is definitely a nice sipping rum but it is simply too sweet for me, hence my rating of 4.
In my opinion this is the Perfect Rum! The color, the taste, the sweetness and the last feeling you remain after you swallow it are simply perfect. I compare all other rums to this smooth, yet full bodied spirit. Every rum enthusiast must try this beautiful Dyonisiac marvel at least once.
Complex, variable, and smooth. These are the words to describe this incredible rum. Each sip you taste is a different experience. Vanilla, fruits, caramel, and plenty other flavors to describe. The initial taste is simple, but let the palette take in all of the characters of the rum and it'll take you for a ride. Enjoy each sip as it is your last because this rum is top notch.
Got it like week ago as present and it was a pleasure to drink with no after burn in throat.
This is a standout choice. Almost an archetype of what Caribbean spiced rum should be.
Mouth:bananas, toasted coconuts, molasses.
Nose: warmth like a parents embrace.
This rum is exceptionally smooth, exceptionally tasty, exceptionally exceptional.
I gave this to a coworker who thought they only enjoyed nice whisky, and their eyes lit up. "I never knew rum could be smooth!" He's now a happy convert.
I mean, the initial smell hit me some floral sweet textures. My first sample of the rum within 30 seconds of the release from the bottle gave strong vanilla notes, with a mild, yet completely suitable burn. But patience is virtue. Waiting roughly 8-10 minutes for rum to breathe, the rum introduced cocoa, milk chocolate coupled with a cinnamon-like aftertaste. Reminded me of my aunt's rum flavored chocolates. The conclusion was a medium,long, delicate and mildly sweet aftertaste
Serve neat! Have Patience! Enjoy my friends
I purchased this bottle to celebrate the birth of my first daughter Layla. Everything about this bottle attracts me, and has been a challenging 5 months trying not to try it as the bottle sat in my liquor cabinet. The packaging was a nicely textured and sturdy cardboard box which protects the perfectly crafted bottle that's elegantly wrapped in palm leaves. Getting down to the good stuff, this rum is liquid gold and is perfection in a bottle. Smooth crisp flavors, that storm your pallet one after another with complexity that I was unable to distinguish from the 2 glasses that I had. I tip my hat to the Plantation Rum company for this one. Although, this isn't the best rum that I've ever tried; it is the best that I have had in a long time. The rum is aged to the point to hit the peak flavor for this rum, and the amount of traveling that these bottles have gone through is astonishing.
Made by a cognac maker. Smells of vanilla and coconut. Sweet taste. Finish with dusty cocoa and cigar box.
Har noter af kokus og er rat sød og lædt, super god.
First touch with ron is amazing.wonderful taste of vanilla and old barrel where aging has been done. Only something nice to smoke is missing. Great drinking minutes of tasting. :-)
...because of the good reviews this rum gets despite it being comparatively low priced.
I thought maybe it's the upmarket design of the bottle which deceives people into thinking this is premium stuff.
Well I was wrong. This is hands down the best value for a spirit of this quality I've come across.
Do yourself a favour and get a bottle.
Ein ganz grosser aus dem Hause Ferrand
Mann kann Stunden an Ihm riechen
Herrlich im Gaumen, Marzipan, Trockenfrüchte, Karamell
Wunderbar im Abgang, seeeehr lang !
Ein Plantation halt
A very big one from Ferrand
You can smell hours of him
Gentle on the palate, marzipan, dried fruits, caramel
Wonderful in the finish, very long!
It's a plantation
C est un rhum vraiment très bon. Il est dans mes préférés.
Perfect sweetness in this one, my favorite rum so far.
Vanilla and a bit of orange.
Ein unfassbar toller Rum. Angenehm im Geruch mit Nuancen von Kokos, Vanille und Früchten.
Auf der Zunge samtweich, süßlich mit einem tollen Geschmack nach Kokosnuss. Verweilt der Rum länger auf der Zunge bekommt er eine angenehme würzig pfeffrige Note.
A perfect rum. All my buddies loved it. Well balanced, nice complexity, interesting flavors and not too sweet. So, if this is a perfect rum, is there a better? And is it not more interesting to have a rum with small edges? Perhaps to smooth, but I can't say right now...
Une découverte des premiers jours
Conseillé par le caviste j'ai adoré le côté vanillé
Le tarif est très abordable
Balanced taste of fruit and vanilla,medium sweet,smooth conclusion.
