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
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).
One of my favorites. Sweet yes, but sublime flavors of caramel, raisins and spice. Smooth and so easy to drink. Enjoy after dinner or with a fine cigar. Highly recommend.
Too sweet and syrupy for my taste. The little cocunutiness detracts from classic sip. That said, I enjoyed the experience but would not buy this one again.
Naozaj výborný rum Plantation XO 20th. Harmónia chuti, jemne drevite tóny, ktoré sa prelínajú s krémovou sladkostou, až náznakmi vanilky. Skutočne výborný pomer ceny a kvality. Odporúčam začiatočníkom i pokročilejsim znalcom rumov
I had many trips to Cuba and always enjoyed Havana Club 7 yo. Up until now I did not try anything else except Cuban rum. Once I've brought from there Santiago de Cuba 11yo and have found it so smooth and delicius compared to HC. Since then I've discovered world is full of different rums ). Had tried 12 of them so far. And I will rate them comparing to HC as the base rated 6.
