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.
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.
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!
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..
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
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.
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!

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.
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.
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.
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.
