The Plantation One Time Limited 2007 Australia comes from the Beenleigh Distillery and was distilled after a twelve-day fermentation in pot style. First he was allowed to store for 12 years in Australia in bourbon barrels and then in France in cognac barrels. Without sugar, the rum was bottled with 49.3% alcohol. As has always been the most recent, all the information can be found on the bottle. Good.

On the nose, the rum is earthy with a vanilla and fruit note. Bourbon notes come with it. Spicy with a light chocolate note, a little adhesive is also recognizable. So far so good. On the palate, the rum is dry and spicy. Little sweetness but a lot of wood with tannins. Some fruit and coconut resonates. The rum becomes more complex over time and has a nice dry base, to which the cognac finish fits well. The finish is woody and shows many bitter substances. Here comes the floral, earthy notes again.

A solid dry rum that (unfortunately) has the typical plantation cognac finish. But here it fits well. If you like spicy, dry rums, this is the right place for you.

Der Plantation One Time Limited 2007 aus Australien kommt aus der Beenleigh Distillerie und wurde nach einer zwölf tägigen Fermentierung im Pot Stil distilliert. Erst durfte er 12 Jahre in Australien in Bourbon Fässern lagern und dann in Frankreich in Cognac Fässern. Ohne Zucker wurde der Rum mit 49,3% Alkohol abgefüllt. Wie neuerdings immer finden sich alle Informationen für den Liebhaber auf der Flasche.

In der Nase ist der Rum erdig mit einer Vanille und Frucht Note. Bourbon Noten kommen mit. Würzig mit leichter Schokoladen Note ist auch ein Hauch Klebstoff erkennbar. Soweit so gut. Am Gaumen ist der Rum trocken und würzig. Wenig Süße aber viel Holz mit Tanninen. Etwas Frucht und Kokosnuss schwingt mit. Der Rum wird mit der Zeit durchaus Komplexer und hat eine schöne trockene Basis, zu der das Cognac Finish gut passt. Der Abgang ist holzig und zeigt viele Bitterstoffen. Hier kommt die floralen, erdigen Noten wieder.

Ein solider trockener Rum dem das für Plantation (leider) typische Cognac Finish gut steht. Wer auf würzige, trockene Rums steht ist hier richtig.

When I think of the dry grape varieties that go into making cognac i think I understand this rum better. Whatever sweet note there is comes from the ex-bourbon barrels at Beenleigh and then this is surpassed by the Ferrand Cognac barrels that the cognac stole all the natural flavour and sugar from already. This is a tight rum that appears to not want to open up... to me anyway. I guess I may have learned I prefer a sweeter finishing cask or a little dosage (don't tell anyone).
It has that dry aperitif-y taste of cognac which is still delicious rum but its not gonna release all the bonus stuff if i was to warm my glass for a few minutes.

This was an interesting rum from Australia, but it's simply too dry for my liking.

Has a bit of a fruity smell and taste, with some pepper, oak, and bourbon.

But too dry for my personal liking.

Spændene med rum fra Australien. Jeg syntes det i stil, mindet meget om Jamaica rum, ikke dårligt

Ein komplexer Rum, der sicherlich nicht jedem zusagt. Im Glas etwas atmen lassen und mit zwei Teelöffel Wasser verdünnt ergibt sich ein runder und warmer Rum mit einer Cognacnote. Ich mag dIese limitierte Edition sehr.

Very sippable, light and refreshing rum. Very crisp, fruity nose, flavors of crisp apples and pears with hints of sugars and baking spices. A marvelous bargain - one of my favorites from Plantation!

Au nez, noyau d'abricot et noix de coco.
En bouche, fruits cuits et agrumes.
Belle persistance avec des notes de vanille et de bois.

My experience with Aussie rum began and ended with Bundeberg UP before this. Bundy barely qualifies as rum and has the palate of paint thinner. This was quite a surprise! It's dry and clean on the palate, rich sugar tones etc., but! it had this really interesting spiciness that I've not encountered before, an almost savoury Chinese five-spice blend quality. Interesting and enjoyable
