Color: amber

Smells sweet, soft and mild with notes of vanilla, caramel ("Werthers Echte") and peaches. There appears to be a whiff of sulphur as well.

Watery, thin and sweet, but also alcohol and spicy aromas (white pepper). Honestly I do not taste much more than caramel and oak. Nevertheless quite tasty.

Medium long, sweet and spicy.

I had the chance to test both the Plantation Panama 2002 and 2004 back-to-back and what a surprisingly big difference between these two rums. Both Plantation Panama rums have a sweet flavor on the nose, and the Panama 2004 is much more sweeter than the Panama 2002. Both exhibit very nice vanilla flavors and a hint of banana and no burn at the end at all. Both rums are very nice, but the Panama 2002 scores a 7, whereas the Panama 2004 is much sweeter and has a better flavor profile scoring a strong 8.

Purchased a bottle on for £40 Had tried others from the plantation range: the pineapple, the 5 year old and the XO 20th anniversary which I have reviewed previously.

This is a good sipping rum but would work equally well in cocktails. Nose is reminiscent of the carribean with exotic fruit, oaky cognac and a touch of vanilla and cinnamon. On the palate there is brandy, and dried fruit possibly prune maybe raisin, a subtle touch of sweet pineapple comes through.

Yet again another great rum by the Plantation rums. If you're into spicy rums this won't let you down. Not too sweet either. Instant favorite. A clear 8.

A very nice rum, aged in cognac barlis. First shot is really sharp, but after that it becomes smooth and you recognize the difference tastes on the palet (I've got vanilla, butterscotch and chocolate).

This has some real body, depth and character. Nice balance too with a tiny bit of bite. Honey, brown sugar and some oak. Too sweet for my taste but the quality is very apparent.

My second most favorite plantation. Nice aroma of banana, vanilla and sugar cane. In taste you can find flavours of vanilla, caramel, honey and fruit. Rum is very smooth with bourbon ending.

Another Plantation hit. Great nose, smooth in the mouth with an enjoyable lasting finish. Excellent neat or as a High end Rum N Coke.

I like this rum neat and maybe even on the warm side. It is 43% if I remember correctly and for some reason it sits just right on a chilly, drizzly day. There is a bit of a burn to it but the creme brulee sweetness is really reserved but pronounced. It does a nice job of distinguishing itself from some of the others in the collection. Maybe not as tasty for my money as the 2001, 2002 Barbados or the 2004 St. Lucia but it is a pleasant find.
