Price and quality considering it is fantastic if you like Jamaica rum.
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt, Mocha, Turkish delight floral top notes, fresh banana, a touch of melted butter and Jamiaca funk.
Could smell this as it was delivered to the table. Hints of vanilla. Rich complex taste. Slight burn on the lips. Very nice neat.
Very nice and fruity. It's ester-rich, but not at all glue-like or reminiscent of varnish. It doesn't taste exactly like a young unaged Wedderburn, but that had to be expected. Yet it's intense and fruity, I'm reminded of oranges and marzipan. Apparently it does contain some sugar? I really don't care! The ideal choice for an original Mai Tai.
Rhum agressif et piquant au nez et ça ne s'arrange pas en bouche. Une attaque toute aussi agressive, un goût à la limite du chimique. Peu de longueur et un retour très très piquant. Une vraie déception !
This rum starts with a nice nosing with pleasant notes of tropical fruits, raisins and banana. With these flavors also the palate starts off, but then fades away suddenly to a very sweet sugar flavor. Short finish. Not sure whether sugar has been added but this obvious switch in the flavor profile is somewhat dubious for me.
This is the smoother version of the Plantation Xaymaca. Aroma and flavors of ripe banana and roasted pineapple. A herbal rum too.
Here are the tasting notes:
Nose : Very complex, slightly smoky and meaty with fruity, herbal and sour notes building up. Next vanilla come forward, almost pastry-like, with cooked banana, bitter orange peel and ripe pineapple.
Palate : Dry, with a more floral and fruitier profile of rose water, soursop, pear, white grape, apricot and sugar-apple. Next some coconut milk, balsam, allspices, bread and nuts emerge.
Røg i duften. Meget frugt og sukker i smagen. Lagret på amerikansk eg, som giver en kraftig og tør smag. Mange smagsnuancer. Blandt andet peber. Røg i eftersmagen og brændt banan. Ikke den bedste fra Plantation. (Smagt på romskolen 2019)
Bra men lite för söt. Tror dom tillsatt en del socker
Jamaican rum from the Plantation range, made with a blend of spirits from the Long Pond and Clarendon distilleries, matured in bourbon casks for 12 years before moving over to Ferrand Cognac casks for a year before bottling.
Mocha, Turkish delight floral top notes, fresh banana and a touch of melted butter.
