Plantation XO 20th Anniversary rum

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.

Beautiful bottle and engraving 10/10 for presentation. Wonderful aroma , let it rest for 5 minutes or so , smells of oak , vanilla , coconut and spices. If you use one ice cube then it bring out fruits like mango and banana...
I have never drank a rum with such a busy taste profile , so many different taste sensations and a good warm finish , if there is a slight fault then maybe the finish could be a bit longer but overall fantastic stuff !! Its a pleasant change that rum can taste this special without too much caramel and sugar and extra additives masking an average product , Cheers !!

Attention seeker to me. Very pleasing rum that 90% will like. But I dont see any personality in it. Blenders played it safe, marketing did its work, end of story.

very smooth and a good mixture between sweetness and alcohol. Flavours of vanilla have the strongest influence.

I like my rum sweet ( I like AH Risse alot:-)).
This is still a sweet rum, but a lot less sweet tha AH Riise.
Great taste - though not a long aftertaste.

Rum Plantation 20th Anniversary Extra Old comes in a very nice bottle. The rum is delivered in a simple carton (picture).

In the glass you first smell some sticky alcohol but after a while you sense vanilla and caramel. This rum needs to rest in the glass for a few minutes.

Absolutely excellent rum. Works well after skiing. Easy to sip and easy to take another one as well.

Assemblage des plus vieilles réserves de la maison, ce rhum est une pure merveille : vieillis de très longues années dans les Caraïbes, les rhums sélectionnés pour cet assemblage sont ensuite minutieusement assemblés par notre maître de Chai, au Château de Bonbonnet, puis affinés dans de petites barriques de chêne français pendant 12 à 18 mois supplémentaires.

Ce « double ageing » apporte à ce rhum une rondeur en bouche et un velouté incomparable. De couleur vieil acajou, Plantation XO 20th Anniversaire révèle un nez aux notes exotiques de canne à sucre, vanille boisée et noix de coco grillée, complétées par des effluves plus complexes de cacao, d’orange confite et de boite à cigare.

parfait en tous les points... pas trop sucré, pas trop burning, très très plaisant à boire !
en plus pour le prix, je pense qu'il est difficile de trouver meilleur...

Great rum to drink straight up or on the rocks. Very smooth, great taste! I absolutely recommend it!

This was my second purchase of a good quality rum, and what a difference. Very aromatic to the nose and smooth spicy finish in the tongue. I thoroughly enjoyed it and recommend it.

It is a sweeter rum with its own flavor. I can taste some coconut which sets it apart. It is smooth and complex but the suger overwhelms the other flavors.

Fantastic rum. Smooth with coconut taste. Expensive but worth it.
