Not expensive rum, sharp from alcohol. In cocktails pretty good

I am shocked it doesn't get better reviews. I've been trying to find a rum for years that is middle priced and excellent and never found one. I finally settled on Myers Dark rum, until I was introduced to this one when I moved down south. The Liquor Store owner recommended this one say, "It's the only one to buy. It's less expensive, but tastes way better and his best seller." At Walmart it is $16.72 a bottle, crazy cheap.

My Dark rum experience was lacking and I found this to be a very comfortable re-entry into the category. Fits the bill for both sipping and mixing. Nothing too exciting and not going to ruffle any feathers one way or another.

Can definitely pick up the Jamaican influence on the nose and palate. Not sweet, but some barrel notes and funk.

Wood notes on the nose Deep caramel taste but subtle and not too sweet hint of a burn on the finish but quickly mellows out to give a long lasting toffee taste. Would rate higher but every taste is too subtle.

Definitely not sweet, just a touch of burn. Will be good to mix. Not the best sipper, but OK.

Originally bought this to put into a batch of Aged Eggnog, for which it was inexpensive and fantastic. The funk really shines through in that, and it also makes a solid daiquiri (with a little less sugar).

However, sipping it is a matter of fortitude. Initial priming sip was good and sweet, but each successive one becomes more cloying and the slight ester nose became more like ethanol. Will stick to mixing the rest of the bottle.

Had a glass of this rum after a better dinner at Såstaholms Castle.
There’s several different Plantation Original Dark with different origins. I’ve seen at least 3, Trinidad, Trinidad & Jamaica and Barbados & Jamaica.
This one, Barbados & Jamaica, contains 1-3 year old Barbados rum and 10-15 year old Jamaica rum.
The distillate is aged in charred American oak barrels before transported to France for some more aging, this time in former Cognac oak barrels.
The nose is spicy, sweet and fruity.
In mouth and at the palate it’s also spicy, sweet and fruity together with flavors of nougat.
The finish is medium long.
Overall an OK rum that probably serves well in drinks like Dark’N’Stormy.
