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.
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!
Very unbalanced taste considering age - sweet first with strong, young rums-like tones following.
It s one of the best i tried. I have to give a 9 because i forgot to smoke a good cigarre with it ;)
Bit spicey on the tongue, good warm by swallowing it and a bit of sweet vanilla tasting. I like it a lot
Voilà une excellente et belle bouteille, elle est certaine de plaire dans plus de 90% à qui la gouttera. Le top en ce moment c'est qu'il y a une promotion chez Nicolas.com aux prix de 43€.
Un très bon mélance des années, bref un très bon Rum.
Une bouteille obligatoirement présente dans son bar !
Angenehme, zurückhaltende Süsse, samtig weich im Geschmack, lang anhaltender Angang, nicht die geringste Spur von Alkoholschärfe. Geschmack nach Kokos, Zimt und Muskat, dezentes Holz im Hintergrund mit leichten fruchtigen Noten. Wichtig ist es dem Rum ein wenig Zeit im Glas zu geben - dann ist er so richtig gut!
A l'odeur il fait penser aux rochers à la coco. Au gout il est tres doux et on retrouve un tput légé gout de rocher coco en plus des aromes de vanille. Très doux et très agréable
Un nez fin aux arômes de vanille, une bouche onctueuse et agréable, et une finale longue et soyeuse.
This Plantation is in my point of view one of the the best rums for this price range
Nice color and a rich flavor that I would think suites most people
For me it´s a little bit too sweet, that’s why it doesn’t score higher
Virkelig dejlig rom med god duft, smag samt eftersmag. Fylder dejligt i munden i lang tid
This is it for me.Sweet a lot of flavor and a good mid burn tasted.
Not giving 10/10 you never know it all whats out there heh.
More i want more
This rum is great, smooth, you feel coconut, banana, mango and vanilla. Full taste and beautiful after taste. If you like coconut you love this rum. Also good price. One of the best for daily sipping...
Sugar and slight fruit on the nose.
Fruity interesting taste, almonds, actually marzipan.
Still not that mature, there are better plantations but it is good.
Great finish, deep, rich and smooth but doesn't last that long.
A really nice well priced rum, love it but not to keen on the coconut taste in it.
On the nose I don't find vanilla as some other reviews have mentioned. It is a nice array of flavours but, coconut, marzipan and maybe tobacco hit me predominantly. Smooth going down and leaves a nice after taste.
This is a excellent sipper and probably my favourite. I love the look and it's absolutely fantastic to sip on. It's $76 CAD for the bottle which isn't as bad as many high end rums with less quality, this rum is great value.
If you're looking to spoil yourself and get a nice bottle - do it with this one. It's mid range price for a high end rum.
Aroma with tones of vanilla and eggnog
Lightly sweet taste with tones of chocolate, coconuts and some not specified fruit :)
This is an excellent Rum, although I preferred the Diplomatico exclusive for straight up or on the rocks.
I usually enjoy Zacapa XO, but this one is also pretty good stuff. Someday I preferr this bottle for a nice end of a good day!
This rum was a very pleasant surprise! It has gone down as one of my favorites. A very smooth rum with a great flavor profile that lingers. It is slightly sweeter than most rated this high, but it works with the flavor. Highly recommended!
Bis jetzt der beste rum den ich getrunken habe.
Kokosnuss und bannane, Schokolade und Vanille. Weich und komplex.
Schöne schwere Flasche macht was her.
Gifted a friend with this bottle and he was more than happy. Very balanced enjoyable flavor profile with absolutely no burn on the way down.
A hint of coconut at the start. And then its smooth sailing till the end. Doesn't get much better than this
Wonderful nose, can smell the cognac as well as a hint in the taste!!!
This is the best sipping rum I have had yet. A friend and I finished a bottle in one night. We couldn't put it down.
Om ja ska vara ärlig så gillar ja inte denna...
