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.
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).
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.
fruity undertones through out nice lite rum with smooth finish probably good in mix
Bienoro pluta Rom paccata vesti brin !!!!
Questa assura oldi inakana laello.
Drink it, love it and drink it again :-)
Smooth, somewhat sweet and lots of vanilla
Här snackar vi banan! Lite mindre söt och mer av karamell.
Plantation XO 20th Anniversary Rum er en top klasse rom, som jeg holder meget af. Den har en stor dybde i duften og smagen er himmelsk.
First experience with Plantation was the Barbados 5 year and I liked that one a lot. Then I tried the 20th anniversary XO. Definitely a step up. A little sweet but balanced with the oak and a nice smooth finish. Highly recommended.
This is my favorite sipping rum. Smooth
Let sødme, super dejlig eftersmag.
Really nice bottle for gift. Taste is same as the cheaper 5 year old.
The taste is and interesting combination of many flavours. There's banana in the beginning and coconut in the end. Vanilla is a bit too strong.
Very tasty, very pleasant rum to sip and mix with. The bottle is also very stunning. (not the flat one, the other one)
Good mild rum
En dejlig rom med en markant kokosnote i både duft og smag. Den har en god sødme og lidt vanilje. Dejlig blød i munden og eftersmagen er mums.
Det er en rigtig lækker rom, som jeg sagtens kunne finde på at købe igen og igen.
A very pleasant rum. Sweet ripe banana, vanilla and coconut comes to mind. The finish is lovely, smooth and sweet with a subtle "roasted" character. It's very well put together and has an elegance I find uniqe in many of the good Bajan rums. I love this style and this one is flirting with a 9 rating.
