Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
what's the smell? like glue,paint not possible to drink.same of mine money.
but after the bottle was open and let the rum breath it was a complete other rum.
my experience take a bigger glas and let it breath for 10 minutes ,theres a nicer smell and a beter tasting. i have to put my ranking from 2 to 7.cheers
The smell is not very nice. The most people already said it. Its a dry one. Short afterburn. The tast is okay but did not last long. Little bit sweet, you can taste the vanilla! Fine sipper
Nosing and palate show flavor notes of vanilla and caramel. There is some little ginger spiciness, but with only minor sharpness. This little spiciness is continued into the finish, which is short. Overall a nice sipping rum, not too strong and not too sweet.
Some may not like the taste. Actually it seems to me like close to St Lucia 2004. Most of the girls do not like it not sure why :) But I like that "smoked" taste...
So I love plantation products with my favorite being the 20th anniversary, but this is literally the first one I've basically dumped down the drain after trying. Its not cheap and i wouldn't recommend it, but i'm also new to rum too so maybe i dont know...That being said I'm a chef and like to think i have a decent palette and this one is just not worth consuming in my opinion.
Color: 2/5. Nose: 5/15. Taste: 15/20
No sugar added, and it tastes. A bit oily, and an interesting experience.
For the days when you want a more dry rum.
I love Plantation brand rum.
I'm satisfied to drink a lot of Plantation rums, However, I can not drink this strange smell rum.
Is it only my one??
Βγάζει μια περίεργη αλμύρα με άρωμα εσπεριδοειδών χωρίς ιδιαίτερα μακρυά επίγευση. Δεν είναι καθόλου γλυκό , αλλά ούτε και βαρύ σα bourbon.Έχει δικό του ιδιαίτερο χαρακτήρα, αξίζει να το δοκιμάσεις , αλλά αν σου αρέσουν τα γλυκά , θα απογοητευτείς. ευτυχώς δεν ανήκω σε αυτήν την κατηγορία. Σίγουρα εμπειρία ..... Σίγουρα όχι στα αγαπημένα μου (8+)
Amber color with hues of gray. On the first nose, there is solvent, it is greedy, pastry on the almond but also with citrus and medicinal notes, plants.The wood arrive on the second nose with specific aromas of cognac that come from the barrel. Ripe exotic fruits also arrive. In the mouth, we are on exotic fruits and candied fruits, it is flat, not very interesting and not very long.
Buttery vanilla, soft caramel, toasted coconut and pineapple.
A 2009 vintage Fijian rum from the Plantation range, produced by the South Pacific distillery and bottled as part of the Plantation range. It was initially matured in bourbon casks for 7 years before being shipped over to France for a for a finishing period in Cognac casks for a further 2 years.
Distilled (pot and column) in 2009 and aged for 7 years in Fiji in Bourbon barrels followed by the typical 2 years in France. Bottled at 44.8% ABV.
Ah yes, that varnish-y Fijian nose. Lots of high notes. But very well aged. It's nicely tamed and fairly balanced. Nail polish with vanillin. Pineapple. Label says prickly pear. Very good; lots of fun. Medium but fun finish. I like it a lot!
