Goldfarbenes Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase einfach eine Wucht. Frisch gebackene Brötchen mit allerlei tropischen Früchten belegt. Litschi , Mangostane, Ananas, getrockneten Kokosflocken und Zitruszesten. Die Brötchen sind mit Zimt bestäubt und mit Schokolade und Vanille gefüllt. Eingepackt in einen duftenden hölzernen Hauch.
Am Gaumen weich, sanft und süss lieblich wie ein Plantation so ist. Ein funky Vanillepudding mit karamellisierten tropischen Früchten und Schokoflocken gespickt. Süsses helles Karamell und leicht geröstetes Eichenholz erweitern Raum und Zeit.
Im Abgang lang und voller Überraschungen. Zuerst Schokolade, dann Marzipan und danach soviel Früchtekuchen wie Du magst.
Ein wirklich toller Rum, nicht so extrem funky und doch mit viel Körper. Geeignet für Einsteiger in die Jamaika-Welt und Süssrum-Lover. Pur-Rum-Lover sollten sich auch ein Glass gönnen. 8+

Gold-coloured amber in the glass.
In the nose simply a blast. Freshly baked rolls with all kinds of tropical fruits. Litchi, mangosteen, pineapple, dried coconut flakes and citrus zests. The rolls are dusted with cinnamon and filled with chocolate and vanilla. Wrapped in a fragrant wooden wrap.
On the palate, soft, smooth and sweetly sweet as a plantation is. A funky vanilla pudding filled with caramelized tropical fruits and chocolate flakes. Sweet light caramel and lightly toasted oak extend space and time.
Long and full of surprises on the finish. First chocolate, then marzipan and then as much fruit cake as you like.
A really great rum, not so extremely funky and yet with lots of body. Suitable for beginners in the Jamaica world and sweet rum lovers. Pure rum lovers should also treat themselves to a glass. 8+

Nice, sweet profile with an interesting finish. One of the better Jamaican rums.

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)

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.
