Plantation XO 20th Anniversary

Caribbean | Aged

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.

Mijn eerste rum waar ik meer als 50 euro voor heb uitgegeven. Het is ook de beste die ik tot nu toe heb gedronken. Zeer lekker!

First. Found for $42. Neat : Aromatherapy in a bottle. toasted coconut followed by maple,vanilla. Mellow burn. You could drink it all day. However at the end of the day have you had a great rum? Rum’s are personal so don’t take my review personal. This is my go to for a mixer because the floral notes shine.

En suveränt god och riktigt prisvärd rom. Det är svårt att ta bara lite av den här.

I'm just putting together this review in order to add some balance to the current rate of this rum, which is absolutely misleading in my opinion.

Such a pompous, heavy bottle. It's all about presentation here, and while the wrapping can be important, any excessive effort in this matter should be taken as a warning. In this case, the quality of the content, of the the rum itself, is the price to be paid for all those unnecessary but costly presentation elements.

Besides the high rates and appreciation for Plantation XO 20th Anniversary rum around here, I would never expect such a low grade product in this price range. At first taste, a disgusting mix of artificial flavours and sweeteners kicks in, fading to a harsh experience that makes one wonder about the real age of the rums involved in the blend. As they say, the proof is in the pudding, and the almost complete absence of smell in the glass once the drink is finished seems like a clear telltale sign in this sense.

Absolutely one of my favorite rums. Smooth flavor with that hint of sweetness that you look for in a good rum. It does have a little harshness compared tonsome top tier rums. On flavor, I would give an 8, but it gets an extra star for the price. Great value to flavor.

I’m a fan. Smooth without the heat. Maybe a little sweet but I like that.

Plantation have quickly become one of my favourite rum makers, from Stiggins Fancy, to their Aged dark rum, their expertise really shines. When I saw this in a shop in London, I couldn't resist to try it out, and WOW, it's hard to imagine rum being better than this. Super smooth with mix of flavours.

Unfortunately The most expensive Rum I have personally tasted only costs around £90, but I can certainly imagine that the Plantation XO 20th Anniversary is punching well above its price tag. Would certainly be interested in being proven wrong, but for now, this will be my go to special occcasion Rum.
