The Plantation Trinidad 2003 comes in a traditional Plantation bottle with the ribbons around it (picture).
This is a nice price worthy rum that you can drink neat aswell as doing cocktails and drinks with the Plantation Trinidad 2003 as base.
On the nose you get some alcohol and a fresh fruit with a little bit of vanilla and maybe also a hint of Bourbon from the casks. This rum smells a bit different from other rums I have tasted. Not so much sweetness in the aroma.
In mouth you get fruit, spices and oak. Some sweetness but not very sweet. This rum is smooth in the throat. The aftertaste is intense with lots of spices and oak. The aftertaste is not the best for me.
Not one of the best rums but it is a nice rum compared to other rums in the price range.

The value for the money is great and it is a Caroni,the Plantation Trinidad until 2003 is Caroni´and you will not find a Caroni for 30 Euro....
Its not a Caroni 1996 Kirsch or a Velier Last, but for this price it is like a gift....

Denna är nog förmodligen den bästa plantationromen, oerhört prisvärd vilket drar upp betyget en aning. Nyanserad smak av arrak och citrusfrukter, något annorlunda jämfört med andra från plantation vilket gör att den sticker ut och gillas skarpt!

This is the right stuff. Nice aroma of caramel, honey. Smooth, decent sweetness and medium long taste of arrack, papaya, caramel, pear. You got to try this.

Sweet smell. Reminds of the XO, but not as smooth and more towards the harshness in the Grande Reserva

Nja, finns bättre för billigare peng.
Blev lite besviken, hade förväntat mig mer efter att ha läst recensionen, "Nyanserad, kryddig smak med tydlig fatkaraktär och liten sötma, inslag av apelsin, vaniljfudge, torkade aprikoser, saffran, arrak och marsipan."
Det finns potential.

It’s quite good. I really don’t have something bad to say about it.
But I think Plantation (and also some others) is a little bit dull. I mean if I for example want a rum from Trinidad or Jamaica on my shelf I buy a rum from the original distillery.

Probably need to rate this again at some point, because I am at the end of a cold. I think my smell and taste might be hidden a bit, but this is a very nice rum, aged in Bourbon casks in Trinidad and then shipped to France where it is then further matured in Cognac barrels as a lot of Plantation rum is.

Schönes helles Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase sehr gehaltvoll und wunderbar mehrschichtig. Eine Welle aus dem salzigen Ozean, sehr blumig mit Karamellaroma, leicht und frisch. In der Tiefe, das Schwere und Dunkle, Schokolade, Lakritze, Holz....
Erstaunlich wie Zeit und Temperatur diesen Rum wandeln. Düfte von Gebäck und Vanille treten jetzt hervor auch etwas Rauch ist dabei, ganz dezent.
Im Gaumen ganz elegant und weich tanzen Aromen von tropischen Früchten über die Zunge, gepaart mit von dunkler Schokolade überzogenem Karamell und einer Priese Salz und Pfeffer. Ein angenehm warmes, süsses Mundgefühl, Gewürze, Ingwer....
Im Abgang wunderbar lang, sehr fruchtig, süsse Rosinen, dunkle Schokolade....
Ein sehr gutgemachter Rum mit der Kraft aus Trinidad und der Eleganz aus Frankreich der Einsteiger und Geniesser zu begeistern mag. (8+)

Beautiful bright amber in the glass.
Very rich in the nose and wonderfully layered. A wave from the salty ocean, very flowery with caramel flavor, light and fresh. In the depth, the heaviness and darkness, chocolate, liquorice, wood ....
Amazing how time and temperature change this rum. Fragrances of pastry and vanilla are now emerging, and there is also some smoke, quite subtly.
On the palate, elegantly and softly, flavors of tropical fruits dance over the tongue, paired with caramel coated in dark chocolate and a dash of salt and pepper. A pleasantly warm, sweet mouthfeel, spices, ginger ....
Wonderfully long on the finish, very fruity, sweet raisins, dark chocolate ....
A very well-made rum with the power of Trinidad and the elegance of France that inspires beginners and connoisseurs. (8+)
