Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
Drink it, love it and drink it again :-)
Smooth, somewhat sweet and lots of vanilla
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.
For the price, this is a fantastic sipper. Not too sweet, and a bit spicy. Very, very enjoyable.
Je me permet de lui attribuer cette note car a mon avis personnel c est un excellent rapport qualité prix. Quel plaisir de savouré ce petit bijoux. Bravo a plantation
Number one in my cabinet. Ripe coconut on the nose and one Sip from glass of this oily Rum puts a smile on my face no matter how hard the day has been
This rum is fantastic from the nose to the finish. The bottle and cork is absolutely beautiful and is a nice rum to display. From start to completion the tastes go through a changing process which end with a long lingering sweet but not to sweet finish. You will experience fruits, spice, hint of leather, a touch of tobacco and finish with caramel, vanilla and ever so slight sprinkling of chocolate. The finish is the very best part of enjoying the excellent creation. You gotta drink this one either neat or on the rocks! It truly does Rock!
I have already taste few rums from Plantation and I have never been dissapointed. This XO 20th Anniversary is provided in a nice bottle 'Plantation ' style with a nice cap. Really good looking. It really need to take a breath of fresh air to release all his aromas. You have to be patient but it is worth. Vanilla and caramel are well present plus a little something else. Good and pleasant aftertaste. Definitively a very good one !
