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.

Plantation has easily the most consciousness marketing department that existed. All the way from the box to the bottle no corners were cut. I could write a mile long summary on that alone but that's not why we are here. Opening the bottle and sniffing it gives you a bunch of wonderful hints, first the cask then some coconut, spices (maybe cinnamon) and a very nice sugar smell. In the glass its a very dark amber, tasting it neat is a very warming rum, extremely well balanced. The coconut is a unique surprise that i'm not used to in aged rums and it makes a very nice addition to the collection. Noting its balanced you get hints of chocolate (probably dark chocolate), oak cask, alcohol,the coconut and vanilla. The coconut after taste lingers for a long time. In cola its good but not as good as straight up. Since its balanced the cola kills some of its unique hints, still very good however. I can see this bottle being a mega hit at a holiday party.
8.5 on rum and .5 bonus points on packaging/bottle.

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

Nice bottle with net and gold inside the bottle. Exocit in the nose. Long caramel finish.

This is a perfect choice for me. Smooth tasting, not too harsh and only gets better when you let it breathe.

I am still at the beginning of my rum journey but this rum has to be almost smooth as it gets. Dangerously easy to drink without any throat burn.
