Plantation XO 20th Anniversary

Caribbean | Aged

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.

Plantation has easily the most consciousness marketing department that existed. All the way from the box to the bottle no corners were cut. I could write a mile long summary on that alone but that's not why we are here. Opening the bottle and sniffing it gives you a bunch of wonderful hints, first the cask then some coconut, spices (maybe cinnamon) and a very nice sugar smell. In the glass its a very dark amber, tasting it neat is a very warming rum, extremely well balanced. The coconut is a unique surprise that i'm not used to in aged rums and it makes a very nice addition to the collection. Noting its balanced you get hints of chocolate (probably dark chocolate), oak cask, alcohol,the coconut and vanilla. The coconut after taste lingers for a long time. In cola its good but not as good as straight up. Since its balanced the cola kills some of its unique hints, still very good however. I can see this bottle being a mega hit at a holiday party.
8.5 on rum and .5 bonus points on packaging/bottle.

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.

I didn’t think this was exceptional or anything. Sweet, coconut taste, typical plantation finish

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.

Bought this bottle along with some others I have to try, and I am glad I started with this one.
Packaging is pretty simple, no fancy stuff like zacapa xo or flor de cana, bottle looks nice, but in the end it’s the inside that matters.

Very smooth taste, no throat-burn whatsoever, and the flavors just explode once you take a sip.

Great tasting rum at a great price. Definitely a keeper.

Ein wirklich schöner Rum. Weich und der Hauch von Kokos gefällt mir schon ziemlich gut.

Best what I have tried. No alcohol flavour, creamy, consumable on its own, on ice.
