Plantation XO 20th Anniversary rum

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.

Those who are against adding sugar to rum post-distillation will be the ones that don't fancy Plantation XO. If you appreciate when a distillery does so with good taste and finesse, then you will more than likely find this to be an exceptional tasting. Have it neat, with a little water or ice, or in an old-fashioned. Lots of tropical fruit notes and a rich, caramelized depth. Baja style taken under French influence for blending and bottling (they traditionally add sugar when they bottle cognac).

First tried this at Longboards on St John and loved it. It is always in my rotation now as I'll try something different, then come back to this. Just a perfect sipping rum.

When I think of great quality rum I’d put this one on the list. Sweet, but dangerously smooth. Wouldn’t drink this any other way but neat. This would be a good candidate to bust out for friends or fam not sure about rum and watch their faces as they say “Oh that’s good!” If you don’t like the taste then aesthetics of the bottle are beautiful. A must have for the collection.

Although a little sweet, this is one of the few rums I can drink the whole evening.

This is a good rum for those who like sweet and smooth rum. Not at the top but a good choice.

Always like Plantation and thought I’d try this having not seen it before. As with some rums, even the highly rated ones, this was not to my taste. I picked up a lot of cinnamon spiciness, sort of a sweeter Fireball. Some may enjoy just not me
