This rum is 11 years old and the price of this rum is just hilarious. Especially when you like the sweet n spicy rums. I have bought/seen rums with only 3 years age for the same price..
Basically this is just a good rum with a good price. Buy it if you can find it. It’s basically gone in Sweden for the moment.
We have a Plantation night and this is currently next to Fiji. It is more subtle than Fiji but that one is still blowing our socks off
Tasted this after a dinner at Såstaholm castle outside Stockholm. I think it had a tinted, spicy taste with distinct barrel character and slight sweetness. I think I can recognize hints of dried apricots, cinnamon, sultan raisin, marzipan, arrack and orange. I’m not a fan of independent bottlers so I will not buy me a bottle, but it’s definitely an OK rum for those who does.

Lovely bottle and box
In the glass: golden, surprisingly light for 11 years in barrel
Nose: honey & apricots, a hint of fermenting pineapple
Mouth: initial fight between sugar and sharp alcohol hit, despite only 40%. This slowly makes way for a good mouthful of sweet fruit aromas, a hint of bitterness and very restrained funk
Throat: quite a sharp burn, moderate length of finish
Summary: it is quite good fun but overcome by the dosage. I would have expected more funky fruit aromas and personally find it far too sweet.
This Plantation is really pricey for what you’ll get. I’ll definitely get it again.
Nuanced, spicy taste with a clear barrel character and a little sweetness, hints of dried apricots, cinnamon, sultan raisin, marzipan, arrack and orange.
Sugar content: 19g/l
