It looks very good on paper: 15-year-old Jamaica rum, mostly ex-Bourbon casks, high ABV, no added sugar, and a decent price. But after trying it I am overall disappointed. The basic profile of an aged Jamaica rum is present but the nose and taste remind me of aged Cachaça and Agricole. It is fresh, light, spicy, and fruity but it lacks the more heavy body that you would expect from the age statement. It was not what I expected and not what I mostly enjoy. I give it a score of 6.5.
This is one of Plantation's zero added sugar (dosage), limited release rums. Pure pot still, open fermentation, it's pretty low on the esters at about 100g/hectolitre. Aged 13 years in Jamaica in bourbon barrels, then 2 years in France in ex cognac casks. Bottled at 48.4%.
Smell is something I haven't come across before. It's soft, an amalgam of overripe fruit, garden shed petrochemicals and a very subtle funk. Considering the alcohol percentage, it's very restrained yet gives its age away.
Taste initially is soft, balanced. All the flavours smelled, there in the taste, with just a touch of sweetness coming through. Then the alcohol slowly arrives and the taste deepens, the wood starts to come through, as it evolves into an incredibly long dry finish, the funk finally beginning to come up with just enough underlying sweetness to give it balance.
This is much more understated than Hampden, and really shows Clarendon's own distinctive style of rum. There really aren't that many pure pot still rums out there, and for a rum this age, this is a bargain.
Mid gold, slightly rough alcohol aroma, taste slightly harsh, bit of alcohol burn, burnt sugar, interesting aftertaste almost like flambé

Muy buena opción. En nariz algo punzante, encontramos mucha fruta tropical en concreto piña madura y un poco de aroma a barniz. En boca es algo picante y se nota la potencia alcoholica en la lengua. Hace salivar e invita a seguir bebiendo.
