Was a lovely round rum, for every day..Better than the 20th aniversary rum. I prefer still the three island version even better.
Tried the Plantation Trinidad 1999 and 2001 back-to-back and they are surprisingly similar in both flavor profile and taste. A lot of the Plantation rums are very different from one vintage to another, but with the case of the Trinidad 1999 and 2001, you would be hard pressed to tell the difference between each other. Luckily I poured them in different colored glasses, so it was easy to remember which is which. Both have the same one thing come to my mind, the word 'mellow'. Not a lo of Plantation rums should be called mellow, but both Plantation Trinidad 1999 and 2001 are mellow as one can be. Smell has a surprisingly strong alcohol to it, but the flavor profile is very bleak and hardly any burn at the end. Mellow like I said.
Very nice looking bottle with a cork stopper - does well for a present.
Colour is a pale straw, suggesting little, if any, added caramel.
Bouquet reasonably full with a clear hint of a tobacco note.
This is even stronger on the palate, similar to the tarry note of a Doorley's XO, but not as overpowering as the medicinal note of the Angostura rums. However here it is well balanced by a moderate sweetness (3/5) due to the Plantation double-ageing and the combination works for me.
I like it as an alternative Zacapa 23 or the Mars & Spencer Guatemalan Cana Negra.
Nose: dried Bananas, Cane Sugar,Paw Paws, Mangoes
Taste: dried Bananas, ripe Paw Paws Cane Sugar some sweet Tobacco, light oily, some bitterness from the cask
Finish: long lasting finish
Reminds me hanging in a Hammock at Rumpoint on the Cayman Islands B.W.I
Unlike its Barbados cousin this have some wood and spice in addition to its sweetnes. Also it has a longer afterburn.
A good value rum. It ain't to demanding, but not boring either. The nose is fruity and fresh with sugar cane and orange. The palate is quite sweet, with the same notes found in the nose and the addition og a slight hint of oak in the finish. A straight up nice and easy going sipper for a hot summerday (picture is wrong btw)
I like the Plantation I have tested so far! they are en between a good cognac and a good rum in my opinion, the explanation is probably the storage in cognac barrels in France for some years except storage in Trinidad.
Seductive aroma: bajan, wood bark and spices. Peculiar taste, moderately sweet with complex astringency. Overall enjoyable than XO 20th Anniversary. .,.,.,. Одно из лучших собраний оттенков терпкости. Добавка сахара скрывает 42% алкоголя и нацелена на увеличение продаж. Пожалуй куплю повторно.
A lot of alcohol on the nose before opening up into a sweet, smoky taste that reminded me of nothing less than a decent, phenolic Islay malt. Surprising, maybe, but I like Islay malts.
Un lindo color ámbar no muy oscuro, agradable. En nariz muy frutal, muchos frutos exóticos, piña, coco y mango pero también chocolate. En boca es una delicia, canela, chocolate, fruta y mucho toffee. No es alcohólico en boca ni quema cuando baja. El sabor queda un buen tiempo después en boca. Muy rico!
