Light nose, still trying to pull a specific smell. A little oily feel at first sip. Can't get past the pepper finish to pull any other flavors. Might have to revisit this review after a few more tastings.
Seeing as the Plantation 20th Anniversary XO is one of my favourite rums, I thought I would try the much cheaper 5 year old, if for no other reason to compare and contrast. Wow, what a let down in comparison! That’s because this 5 year old is disgusting. It’s so inferior to the XO that I’m genuinely shocked that these two completely different rums are produced by the same distillery! On the palate this 5 year rum old has plenty of sweetness to it, but no real distinguishing flavour to speak of, so it just comes across as rather bland. Then you’ve got the fact that the alcohol burn is too harsh, making this very unpleasant to stomach. Then, on top of all that, if things weren’t already bad enough, in the finish this rum possesses a horrid taste. Full disclosure, I’m struggling how best to describe said taste, but think of spiced apple and you won’t be a million miles away from the truth. Oh, did I forget to mention that the finish is weird as well as being awful!
Nagyon kellemes melaszos illat aszalt gyümölcsökkel, karamellel, csokoládéval, kókusszal, ízben pedig ugyanez. Összetett, mindenből amennyi kell, semmi nem tolakszik, semmi nem hiányzik. Azt hiszem megtaláltam a RUM-ot. Ebben az árkategóriában nekem egyelőre ez lett a favorit!
It's smell is not wholey unpleasant but it definetly does smell slightly harsh, however, when you try it, you will see that nothing could be further from the truth! First off, this rum is very smooth and delicious and it is also fairly complex. It definitely has a big hint of coconut and although it's smooth, it will make your mouth tingle. It's reasonably priced and absolutely worth the money. Get yourself a bottle if you can find it!
