Dry but a hint of sweetness. This one suited my tounge.
I got it as a gift. Was really excited about it coz it has been getting a lot of praise here and there, i thought i saw it somewhere as best rums of 2018 or something. Anyway, the excitement seized when i poured me a little to drink neat. Let me talk about the pros first. It feels honest and not sugared down to oblivion with some funkiness to it but that's about it. It should have been bottled in higher ABV and maybe left to mature more. It feels like it lacks power and it's quite dry, with so dry a finish that it becomes unpleasant. A bit funk is there but nowhere near a good jamaican rum.
I’ve been consistently impressed with most of the varietals from plantation and this is no exception. As you’d expect the “dry” takes away some of the sweet I enjoy, but overall a fine drinker on ice
Smooth, fruchtig, aber nicht aufregend. Nicht scharf, süß und etwas fruchtig...
I have never had a similar experience with another rum - if you read the tasting notes from the bottle, you can smell and taste everything is there. Pineapple and the funky Jamaican flavor predominate. Definitely worth trying!
The first zip was amazing, full with fruit notes , sweet. I remember thinking: now that’s a nice rum but then I realized something odd, the aftertaste was a bit off. Couldn’t really place it but certainly wasn’t something I was enjoying.
A second try out should clarify things.
seriously taste like
appleton 12 taste of themjamaique
vôňa ma nijak neoslovila, dokonca by som povedal, že vonia lacno, pri pití cítiť, že je trošku silnejší (43%) nieje ale nepríjemný a alkoholový...jemný aftertaste po tabaku... tento rum na mňa zanechal dobrý dojem, ale až po druhom či treťom poháriku..
Pure pot still Jamaican hogo with a hint of fruit, pineapple possibly but retains that funky pot still style in a crisp clean flavor. Perfect for tiki mixes and not a bad sipper as well if you enjoy Jamaican funk.
Lovely smell, can taste the funk n sweet, but it's a bit dry and needs some age.
C'est un rhum fruité tropique. Il ressemble au 5 ans Barbade mais on reconnait le procéder et le goût de la Jamaïque.
Poured neat it has a wonderfully sweet aroma that reminds me of dried pineapple. The first sip is strong, with a lot of flavor up front and a bit of burn in the back that lets you know it's packing 50% ABV (100 Proof). This is a great example of Jamaican Funk, with the taste of raisins and over-ripe fruit that leaves behind a sweet spiciness that makes you lick your lips and go back for another sip. An ice cube mellows the burn a bit, and gives you a bit more fruitiness. This would feature well in a tiki cocktail, but makes for a good sipper if you enjoy Jamaican Funk.
Salon du Rhum Spa 2018 - plutôt sympa mieux que le jamaica "normal"
Great body. Strong but round and with a delightful lengthy ending.
láhev - obal 6/10 bottle
vůně 15/20 smell
chuť 20/35 taste
jemnost 6/15 smooth
cena/výkon 12/20 much for money
Příjemná vůně rumového aroma. Prý vyhrál zlatou medaili v Německu. Není to špatné, ale za tu cenu se standardně nedá moc čekat. Je opravdu DRY! to ho ale zase řadí o chlup výš. Asi dost dělají tradiční sudy po šampaňském. Chutná ušlechtile, ale není pro každý den.
Enjoyed two glasses of Plantation Jamaica Xaymaca with my friend during a 5,000 mile road trip across 18 States. Bottle and label design looks very nice and unique. Golden amber color. Very strong and offputting glue and funk straight to your nose and palate. Strong burn at the end due to 100 Proof Pot Still so there is zero sweetness on this rum.
