Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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
This was the second of Plantation's range I have tried, and I really like them both.
The nose and initial taste is all about coconut, lightly toasted. There's a smidge of vanilla, sofk oak, honey and caramel. It feels a little burny, but meh ... that doesn't really bother me too much unless I'm swirling it around in my mouth for so long that I forget I have rum in there and breathe-in.
Top-tip ... do not inhale your rum. It will make you cough and possibly cry a bit.
I originally scored this an 8, but I found that once the bottle has been opened for a couple of weeks, a lot of the coconut and honey elements have faded.
The first taste was bloody lovely, though!
The rum was a present so I wont look for pricing. It has a nice smoothness to it at first, but a steong ending. It is suitable for introducing people to rum. That being said there are smoother and better ones out there, still above average in my opinion.
Intense nose mainly vanilla and caramel. Lets guess a sweet balance, that is confirmed in the mouth. This makes the rhum too heavy and kills any character, class it could have. I am not fan of this kind of rhum, and really perfer dry ones, from french Antilles for example.
