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.
Now this is some good stuff
Tasty, to sip and mix with. The bottle is also very stunning. (not the flat one, the other one) That said the so called "dosage" or in plain words - added sugar, takes down my rating.
By far my favourite rum of the moment, cheap enough to buy and drink copious amounts . Still have a small reserve of Pyrat Cask 1623, that I drink on special occasions which now due to Plantation might not see the light of day!
Incredibly smooth, just the right amount of sweetness, & vanilla tones.
Bottle is a beauty on the shelf.
You won’t be disappointed!
This rum appears in a very exclusive looking bottle, and the smell is smooth and full of impressions from the Caribbean. I can taste a variation of coconut, vanilla, a little exotic fruits, and the rum have a lasting taste, and no burn. A great everyday zipper!
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!
