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).
Un rapport qualité/prix imbattable. Une explosion de saveurs. Pas un grand rhum, mais un bon rhum !! Un rhum à déguster et à partager en toute occasion
A great quality/price ratio. A firework of flavours. A nice rhum, even if not a great rhum. A must have and share for every occasion.
Den beste Rom jeg har smakt, soleklar favoritt. En deilig lukt av vanilje og karamell. Ettersmaken er behagelig og varm og ikke noe dårlig ettersmak.
For me, this rum has a similar character to the "regular" Plantation Dark, but it's deeper, richer, and more refined. Definitely a rum I'll be giving to new inductees to the art of drinking rum.
A touch of everything. It has some sweetness, some bite, an old world flavor, and covers what one may expect. I had EXTREMELY high hopes for this bottle, and was left with "well shit, that's not bad". A great bottle. Its available, fairly priced, and a good product with a touch of smoke and oak.
