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.

Sattes Bernstein mit Goldreflektionen im Glas.
In der Nase weich und elegant. Wie auf einem täglichen Markt in den Tropen, erfreuen Düfte von allerlei tropischen Früchten in allen Reifestadien, von noch grün bis zu angefault. Karamell, Vanille und Gewürze sind mit den Holznoten harmonisch abgestimmt. Der "Funk" probiert das Ganze etwas zu durchbrechen.
Am Gaumen elegant und doch wild. In Holzgefässen zerstampfte Früchte vermischen ihr Fruchtfleisch mit Vanillesauce und Karamellstückchen. Holztöne vom Cognac Fass sind klar wahrzunehmen. Gewürze und ein guter Schuss Funk sorgen für Überraschungen.
Im Abgang lang und abwechslungsreich. Karamell und Vanille bleiben lange, sind aber dennoch vor den Früchten weg. Holz hält sich am längsten mit den funky Nuancen zusammen.
Ein toller Rum ohne Zusatz von Zucker. Für Einsteiger, Geniesser und Jamaika Liebhaber. 8+

Rich amber with gold reflections in the glass.
Soft and elegant on the nose. Like a daily market in the tropics, scents of all sorts of tropical fruits in all stages of ripeness, from still green to tarnished, are a delight. Caramel, vanilla and spices are harmoniously balanced with wood notes. The "funk" tries to break it up a bit.
Elegant yet wild on the palate. Fruit crushed in wooden vats mixes its pulp with vanilla sauce and bits of caramel. Wood tones from the cognac barrel are clearly perceptible. Spices and a good dash of funk provide surprises.
Long and varied finish. Caramel and vanilla linger long, yet are gone before the fruit. Wood lingers longest with the funky nuances.
A great rum with no added sugar. For beginners, connoisseurs and Jamaica lovers. 8+.

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.

Tasted at the Lei Away rum tasting #1 on 9-1-23. Dark rich golden color. Muted Jamaican funk aroma. Medium mouth feel, but a really great balanced hogo with the candy cane sweetness. Very nice to sip. The wood comes out in the back end. Good stuff.

The hotel barman warned me of the price before I had a double without ice. A truly great rum for sipping. I enjoy the fire in Jamaican rum so this was a perfect after dinner drink. It was so good I had a second.

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.
