($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.
One foggy Sunday afternoon I landed at Forbidden Isle and was offered a sermon on the rocks from Revereand Stiggin. My complete salvation isn't guaranteed but after just one tasting I surely avoided the fires of palate hell. Plantation Pineapple was a surprising delight when I had harbored the worst expectation (even with a brand that has yet to fail this salty waterman). Try it at a price that won't empty the treasure chest.
Bought it as a first real rum (let's leave the "rum like" stuff back on the shelf) to accompany cigars and it did not disappoint. A good backstory pretty much always get's me and get's the fantasy going and with this rum, Plantation achieved just that. The Pineaapple takes you to the warmth of the Caribbean, perfect for an autumn escape. I like it with two ice cubes but it works wonders in a cocktail as as well (should try and mix it with coconut), it's sweet but not overpowering. Would recommend and will buy again!
Plantation is a relatively well-known rum brand, especially in connection with their most famous rum, Plantation XO 20th Anniversary. When I saw in the title that the rum was pineapple flavored, I imagined it would be some sweet elixir, but it was far from it.
Rum has an alcohol content of 40%. It was created by cutting pineapple into raw rum, which was macerated in it for 3 months, and this mixture was distilled again. So this is an unaged rum.
Bottle: Classic Plantation, but this time without a weaving.
Aroma: A strong alcoholic fruity scent that smells of non sweet pineapple, unripe bananas and fresh ginger.
Taste: At first, it burns quite on the palate and on the tongue. The taste of rum itself is less strong - so watery. The taste is tropical fruit, especially unripe pineapple and unripe bananas, as well as spices such as cloves, ginger and vanilla. At the end of the taste, you can smell a little smoky to bitterness.
Aftertaste: Short to medium.
Rum is not bad, but the taste is very specific and quite dry. I do not see it to buy a whole bottle.
Overall rating: 7 of 10
Det ligger naturligvis i navnet, at den er gennemsyret af ananas, men det er heldigvis også lige mig. Duft af ananas, ubestemmelige krydderier og fad. Også fad i smagen, men heldigvis også ananas. Desværre kan man godt smage, at der er blandet ung hvid rom i, så den bliver meget tør, og det rækker ned.
