Tasty, but not quite great
I love it. Banana bread underneath a palm tree with cigar smoke drifting by from further on up the coast. Walk out to the shore.
Dip your toes in.
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!
If I want to ween people onto jamaican rums without having them run away in fright, I'd give them this first. It's a very smooth jamaican style.
After they've grown accustomed to this, they can move on to actual jamaican rums.
It’s pretty good. There is some funkiness on 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!
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.
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!
