Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Bought a case last summer while in NYC for a short vacation. A lot of expectations after following and reading on the birth, or re-birth I should say of the Pineapple Rum. And it does not disappoint.
It is like mentioned elsewhere a lot more rum forward than pineapple. The nose is classic aged rum full of spices and toffee, with at first a quite subtle pineapple rinds note. Taste is generous. Compared to the Original Dark which it it is based on, this a lot longer, with the pineapple giving it a delicious round buttery finish. And then the pineapple just grows on you. Letting it breath will unleash the pineapple in a luscious way.
My friend and I each drank a bottle while in NYC, roaming around with our flasks filled up with it. I mixes incredably well, in lattes for breakfast, and especially with the local Lime Rickey, for of safe street sipping new classic drink: The Pineapple Rickey.
Not sipping the stuff all day was the toughest thing returning back home after this short vacation. You live in the US? Consider yourself blessed and seek it. Great folks at Ferrand/ Plantation are currently concocting a new batch of 50K+ bottles so hopefully it will become more widely available. Unfortunately it won't be available here in Quebec for 2016.
Thank you Plantation!
Absolutely amazing pineapple orgasm in this one. Not too juicy and not too sweet, best rum in my house.
This stuff is fantastic! Way better than any pineapple rum I've tasted yet. Sweet and savory, pungent and oily.
In this price range this rum's gotta take the cake! The pineapple flavor is not overbearing and blends in whit everything else to lend a very smooth and tasty ride. One of my favs for sure!
($47 CAD) I was excited to try this as I really enjoyed the 20th anniversary bottle from Plantation.
It’s a nice amber colour in the glass. It smells like pineapple a bit, less so than I thought it would.
Tastes like a solid rum infused with pineapple. It’s sweet, but the pineapple doesn’t take over the flavour of the rum. It has a rather smooth finish with little burn but also little depth. You can definitely taste the rum come in after the pineapple and I like that.
When I first tried this, it fell short of my expectations. With that being said, and as time goes on, I am liking it more and more, despite the lack of a finish. It’s so easy to drink, I feel like if you were catching up with someone drinking this, it wouldn’t take long to down the bottle. I wish it was $10 cheaper but still highly recommend it at this price point.
Mmhmm. Yep, that’s nice.
Nice kind of choice if you wanna try some good stuff. Light hit of pineapples, but rich taste of rum and still high voltage. Very recommended
A delicious pineapple rum. Great for mixers. I have a cocktail based on pineapple upside down cake that is delicious with this as a base.
