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
Rare that you find a bottle of rum that looks great in the bottle, tastes great and for such high quality is not badly priced at US$50 duty free. This and Mr Gay XO are my two top Barbados rums. Both are must haves for the serious rum connoisseur. Hints of oak and burnt caramel, silky going down with light burn and nice fruity taste.
Improved my opinion of Barbados rum greatly. Fresh taste with coconut and other tropical flavours. Smooth with a little tingle. I'd give it a 9 but that would be a touch generous. Would highly recommend. Not too expensive either.
Smooth. Very smooth. I expected more flavor as the rest of the plantation family but what it lacks in flavor it makes up with in velvety character. Mild Honey sweet
A very good sipper
Very smooth rum
Too much coco though
Long after taste
I’ve bought this bottle for my bar,but I end up drinking it
Smooth warm and full of flavors on the rocks. Caramel and hints of banana. Just the correct amount of sweetness. Needed a bit more punch to be a 10.
