This is a neutral taste for a great price. Choice for mixing

The nose is strong for only 40%.
I get the typical Jamaica fruits like it the Plantation Overproof OFTD. Could it be a diluted version of the OFTD?

The nose is full of molasses and dry fruits. I get also the red fruits like in the OFTD. Then some dark flavours of barrel and wood. There is also some sweetness of caramel or dry fruits.
It's a mellow version of OFTD.

The taste is also like a mellow OFTD. It starts with caramel, dry and red fruits. Then sweet with burned sugar and molasses. It turns spicy with burned sugar, red fruits and molasses.
The finish is of course spicy with flavours of molasses, red fruits and caramel.

It's still intensive, spicy and mellow. I like it, I would rate it with 75 points.

Nose: caramel, dry and red fruits, molasses, barrel and wood, some vanilla

Dried fruit in the nose. Taste again with driet fruit, banana, vanilla.
It can be sipped easily, but excels as a mixer for really good value

Medium sweetness and quite easy. Smokey taste/smell, some ripe fruit (banana). Lacking aftertaste though.

Plantation has some rums that I really enjoy.
This is not one of them.
This is made for drinking in your $13 Dole whip
Cup at Disney World.

This rum has two different sides for me.

Lets start with the first negative side. Drinking this rum on the rocks isn't the best thing to do because of many flaws it has. It lacks of complexity and flavours and balance and so on.
The second positive side in my opinion is that it is a very cheap rum to buy and therefore it is one of the best rums to mix with coca-cola!

So there it is. Mixing a Rum is a different category for me. There are very good Rums to make a Rum-Coke but rating them comparing to drink a Rum on the rocks isn't fair because they are horrible on the rocks and perfect in a coca- cola. While the more expensive rums meant to drink on the rocks are definitely not to be ruined with any other liquor or even not to drink with ice-cubes!

Weak taste, barely noticeable. Mostly smoke and alcohol. Decent for mixing, not expensive.

Schönes warmes Mahagoni im Glas.
In der Nase würzig und fruchtig. Düfte von Schokolade, Holz, Kaffee, und Früchte bilden eine solide Grundlage.
Am Gaumen weich und warm. Karamell, Vanille, Schokolade, Früchtchen sind perfekt aufeinander abgestimmt.
Im Abgang sehr lecker und mit langanhaltenden subtilen süsse. (15 gr./l)
Macht sich gut in jedem Drink, Jamaika (Long Pond) und Barbados (WIRD) scheinen eine gute Mixtur zu sein. Wie vomi 1011 schreibt : ist wie ein verdünnter OFTD. Für jede Bar.
Plantation Verkostung bei SCHÜWO.

Beautiful warm mahogany in the glass.
In the nose spicy and fruity. Scents of chocolate, wood, coffee, and fruit form a solid base.
The palate is soft and warm. Caramel, vanilla, chocolate, fruit notes are perfectly balanced.
In the finish very tasty and with long-lasting subtle sweetness. (15 gr./l)
Does well in any drink, Jamaica (Long Pond) and Barbados (WIRD) seem to be a good mix. As vomi 1011 writes : is like a diluted OFTD. For any bar.
Plantation tasting at SCHÜWO.

Nice and smooth with a long finish. Tastes of dried stonefruit and vanilla with a hint of bourbon spice.

This one has the typical plantation taste: raisins. A bit strong of a strong burn at the end though. But only for a short time.
