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.
Poured neat, it's very light on the nose with just a hint of buttery toffee and caramel. The first sip has a heavy mouthfeel with a warm flavor that travels from the middle of the tongue to the back of the throat. It leaves behind just a little heat, and flavors of rum and caramel apple. I like it best with just one ice cube with brings out a bit more of that caramel apple flavor that I could drink all night. This is a great sipper!
easy to drink. sweetness, touches of orange peel, almond pulp, arrack, coconut and vanilla
Absolutely mind-blowing! My first experience and tasting of a classical 'sipping' rum! Enjoyed every single droplet and immediately went out and sourced some for myself! Started my journey with rum because of this exceptionally smooth vanilla toffee, fudge, caramel beauty!
Very smooth rum, exceptional well balanced.
The taste afterwards is a little bit boring still a splendid sipper!
Balanced. For the price, the taste, the pleasure. Maybe i would like to see a better aftertaste. Something more spicy or fuity but nothing negative. Fair play. A must to try. Even i prefer more sweet rums. I will buy a bottle and get drunk with that and then i will come back to write about it.
Nice and sweet. Sirupy, taste lasts long time. Not an every day drink but only for special ocassions.
Sweet notes but gentle on the palate. Lovely sipping rum for a special occasion.
This one exceeded my expectations. It is exceptional well balanced and a medium sweetness. I immediately wanted another
Dark rum, not to sweet with taste of burned banana, vanilla and a little chocolate. This is a 12 year old rum added some older rum in this 20'th anniversary. Nice
Wow, one of my new favourites, very smooth and sweet and fruity . Love the bottle.
Love it with or without coke , great rum , good price
Balení: jedno z nejhezčích provedení lahve.
Pro ty kdo mají rádi sladší rumy, je tohle opravdu bomba. Po nalití je potřeba nechat rum min. 10minut vydýchat, aby se plně rozvynula chuť a vůně. Pak ucítíte příjemný kokosový nádech, který ale nepřebíjí samotnnou chuť rumu. Rum je velmi jemný a za ty peníze to je super nákup. V této cenové kategorii zatím top.
This was my first Rum ever tasted and it's still my favourite.
smooth, lots of vanilla, caramel and sweet.
...And it was good! All I expected. Taste at Aku Aku in Oslo with mother of dragons!
I love the coconut flavor and it’s little smoky. Tipical dominican rum. Good choice. Very good value for money.
Excellent rum at a good price point, probably the best before prices become stratospheric! Toffee, nuts, fruit, vanilla and milk chocolate malt.
Fantastic rum. It will satisfy both beginners and more experienced rum sippers. Aging it a second time in cognac barrels gives it an extra dimension.
So far this is the smoothest and easiest to drink that I've had- And it's affordable.
After reading do mamy favorable reviews I was expecting much more. The alcohol notes are very strong. It's quite sweet and definetly burning. After the first alcoholic hit some more pleasant notes appear - vanilla, chocolate, spices.
Finish is short.
It's still not a bad rum but there are better ones in this price range.
I was recommended this by a few people and after trying it myself I find it a let down for the price. I drank it at room temp with 3 cubes of ice and even tried cold stones but wasn’t what I expected. Good to have in the cupboard but not the top end for the price.
It depends on the bottle!
The last one was not the same as now. A light sweetish uncomplicated rum with vanilla... I recommend it to try.
Very ballanced, smooth and pleasent.
Coconut on nose.
This is a good sipper.
this is really a good rhum very smooth with a coconut taste on final
This should be a gatekeeper for quality. This is good, complex rum. Added sugar? Sure. But not too much and not to cover its weaknesses.
Smell: vanilla, coconuts, chocolate, sugarcane
Taste: Sweet, complex, vanilla notes
Recomendable to anyone who wants to know what quality for fair price is. Very good quality/price ratio and nice gatekeeper for high class rums.
