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.
In this crazy world of rum it is easy to be misguided by the number printed on some of these bottles, so let this be said. This rum is not 20 years old, but that doesn´t mean that it is bad.
Nose: Caramel, vanilla and a hint of fried bananas
Taste: Thick and sweet with caramel, vanilla and a hint of orange peel. Short and thin aftertaste
Overall: This rum is on the sweeter side, but it still holds up well against other rums in that category. It fills the mouth, but leaves soon after swallowing, which hurts the rating a bit
It's a very sweety rhum. very nice without agressivity. But this rhum is a little to coco flavour for me.
De un color pardo y aroma dulce, este ron puede tomarse en las rocas sin problemas, sin peligro que su sabor sea demasiado invasivo
VERY VERY ENJOYABLE. Not to sweet no burn just great tasting.
Love this rum. As well as the vanilla, I get a huge hit of coconut on the nose and the first taste. Smooth and sweet, bright and fruity. While flavourful, it isn't heavy or thick. Also, at $40, it's one of the best value bottles.
Det er nok en af de bedste rom jeg har i min samling, ikke for sød og en dejlig eftersmag.
Lige som jeg kan lide den.
I never tasted a rum from Barbados before, and many positive ratings everywhere made me curious and my expectations been also very high. Well,i wasn't disappointed,its even better as i ever thought. In the nose : like a casket full of fresh tropical fruits,mango,banana. In the mouth it literally explodes,the tiny bite is overwhelmed with the complex fruity flavours. Tasty and a must have
Truly a gem of rums!
Affordable, smooth and sweet.
fles: 70cl en prachtig uitgevoerd.
aroma, karamel, tropisch fruit en hout.
smaak: caramel, mango, kokos en vanille.
nasmaak: lang, eerst zoetig dan droog.
Uitstekende rum. Een echte aanrander.
24/29 gr/liter suiker toegevoegd. 2 punten er af met zo'n prijs.
The bottle comes in a nice box and the bittle itself is really nice.
This rum smells fantastic, your be greeted with carmel and coconut reminding me of a Caribbean holiday.
This is a sipping rum and you will have to remind yourself that your drinking rum instead of cognac.
This is a fantastic rum and I would not turn down a glass mixing this would be a crime. Just add ice if you need to pair it with anything.
One of my favourites.
Great touch of coconut in aftertaste and perfect smoothness,not so sweet not so dry. Recommending to have it.
Denne Rom bør smages. Lidt frugtsmag, dejlig eftersmag og god duft. Bør være i din Rom samling.
Medium dry to slightly sweet, smooth with good flavor.
Velmi dobrý rum. Měl jsem kromě ročníkových Plantation Grande Réserve i Plantation Guatemala Gran Anejo - oba byly dobré, ale tento je překonal.
Bottle : This bottle is also beautiful. It has a exclusive look, easy to access with it´s big cap and nice weight to it.
Nose : The scent if full of vanilla and sugar.
Taste : Big full and rich taste of what i believe is a nice rum, rich with raisins and vanilla.
Finish : Strong finish which slowly evolves in separate tones.
This rum is a great medium priced Plantation rum.
It has a good full taste and is sweet enough for my sweet taste.
It is a good place for you to start if you are new to Plantation, as I was this spring.
I have since bought a more expensive Plantation single cask rum - and I am sure I will buy more bottles from this fine brand soon.
Great looking bottle if you can live with the plastic'ish top - I can.
Vanilla, chocolate and coconut flavours well assembled with nuts and oak because of the old rums. Not sweet because of the young alcoholed rums. It provides an awesome blend which appears to be my best rum so far.
Beautiful aroma, taste, great finish.
Great with a medium body cigar.
Can not go past this rum. Perfectly positioned at the top of the quality plantation series. Requirement in any rum collection
Great aroma and taste, it is one of my favorites, very elegant in the nose and noble flavor, I really love this rum!! very smooth and pleasure to drink!
Plantation XO, 20th anniversary is simply the best rhum I had the chance to taste! It has a bold taste, and the final is very long and satisfying. If hope I will have the chance to buy another bottle of this fine spirit!
One the best rhums what I have tasted so far!
Beutifull smoothnes and I just love that marshmallow kick in mouth! Lots of vanilla, tropical fruits and little milk chocolate.
I´ll have to get more of this!
Paying a bit for the bottle, but the contents are as superior as the packaging. Could be a bit smoother, but all in all a fine spirit. Nice flavours and aftertaste.
Plantation jubilæumsrom er en lettere rom med duft af kokos, vanilje og fad. Smagen er er lidt til den sprittede side, og rommen udvikler sig ikke imponerende. Det er ikke en blød rom og tredje glas smager markant bedre end første glas. Det er en fornuftig rom til en aften i festligt lag, men imponerer ikke ved et enkelt glas.
