Nose: pineapple, vanilla and cinnamon. Also the hint of a cold cigar.
Body: citrus, vanilla, some cocos, ginger and also the taste of cake.
All in all nicely balanced from my point of view.
Last version of this Saint Lucia Plantation with smoky notes on the nose. On the palate, it's very sweet with fruity aromas like banana and vegetable with sugar cane and floral notes that I can not identify. The finish is spicy with notes of dried fruit and oak also very present. Nice one.
St. Lucian rums have a distinctive funk in the tradition of the great Jamaican distilleries. This is a great addition to the tiki bar for rich flavors and complex layering.
Wow. After tasting this, many other popular brands taste like artificial blends. This is true craftsmanship. Plantation really elevate the game.

Great rum for an affordable price.
A bit of leather, liquorice in the nose. In the mouth a warm caramel and a bit to sweet.
I dont like many of Plantation rum because of its cognac ageing but this one turned very good. First off - its 100% pot still! The second - nine years tropical ageing and no more than 1.5 years continental one. All of theese gave this rum excellent taste and aroma. Powerfull nose with rich sweet tropical fruits and little bit smoky. Taste bold, creamy with inimitable camphor and tobacco notes. I havent encountered with kind of this before. Bravo Plantation!))
Double bourbon barrel aging definitely shines through. Nice Carmel and tobacco pallet. Almost taffy feel on the tongue.
A smooth, nice rum from Plantation. And one of their best ones I’ve tried. Caramel, raisin and sunshine in a golden bottle!
Another good rum by Plantation, these guys always hit the ball on mark. Very tasty and enjoyable. Good mouth and finish that is long and lasting. Good work.
Schönes sattes Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase dominiert das Holz mit einem medizinalem Unterton, Früchte und Karamell begleiten das ganze. Nasses Laub und Moos halten sich dezent im Hintergrund.
Im Gaumen kommt die Medizin wieder an erster Stelle, kenne ich so nur von Rum aus Mauritius. Karamell und Kräuter sind auch mit dabei.
Im Abgang schön lang mit viel Karamell und auch etwas Rauch. Dezenter als beim 2001.
Ein weiterer toller Rum aus der Vintage Serie die mir sehr gefällt. Ein Rum mit einem sehr eigenen Charakter. Für Entdecker und Fortgeschrittene. 7+
Beautiful rich amber in a glass.
In the nose the wood dominates with a medicinal undertone, fruits and caramel accompany the whole. Wet leaves and moss remain discreetly in the background.
In the palate, medicine comes first again, I only know it from rum from Mauritius. Caramel and herbs are also included.
In the finish nice long with lots of caramel and also some smoke. More discreet than the 2001.
Another great rum from the vintage series that I really like. A rum with a very own character. For explorers and advanced. 7+
