Avast, the smell of this rum be complex! Some fruit, a wee bit of oak, and lots of burnt sugar. Maybe a hint of Cognac... not a fan of Cognac. The oak carries into the flavor, which be smooth and spicy with a little burn. If you fancy a sweet rum, weigh anchor and sail on. This be a true clap of thunder not meant for the lily-livered. Drink up, me hearties!

Dry but a hint of sweetness. This one suited my tounge.

It’s pretty good. There is some funkiness one the nose, none detected on the palate. On the nose I get some rather odd notes to begin - both green onion and soy sauce share the stage with cinnamon, pastry and something like a menthol note. Strange as this may sound, it reminds me of the smell of the waiting area at the dentist! The palate is lovely, dry, with nevertheless a round mouthfeel including brown sugar, cinnamon drops and some heat on the sides of the tongue for a finish. It’s interesting!

Not the best plantation, but not the worst either. A good middle class rum.

Been wanting to try this and any Plantation rum I have not come across yet. This departs from previous Plantations very dry hint of sweetness with hints of leather and ash. I do enjoy it as something different unusual flavors and very sip able. Light golden yellow color, not for beginners definitely something unique going on here realistically 6.5.

I didn't know rum could be dry, but this one is. Tough to sip and mix...but someone out there will love it.

If you like Jamaica funk rum, you will probably like this. It is certainly affordable, and nice for the price. It's just not my cup of tea. I'll finish the bottle, but probably will not buy again. Enjoy!

A rum with no additives or added sugar, you get a rum as it is. As you can expect from the label, it is a dry rum. So not recommended for beginners, but definitely worth trying out as a more seasoned rum drinker.

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
