Nice light gold color. At the nose, we can detect typical varnish, solvent note coming from Jamaica with fruity notes like pineapple, banana and mango. On the palate, same aroma, very smooth. The final is not very long but nice rum.
This was my second rum of "better ones" and what a nice rum, VERY affordable here, and now im looking forward to buy the pineapple one!
Compared this to the plantation xaymaca. Very similar in taste though the xaymaca are more dry and not so sweet as it's brother Jamaica 2002. But nevertheless this is a great rum like the xaymaca. If you prefer a sweeter rum this will suit you more. But trust me, it's not to sweet. Banana and arrak for the flavours and nose.
Un rhum assez corsé, vieilli en fûts de bourbon dans un premier temps, puis en fûts de cognac.
Un nez assez prononcé, mélange de fruits et d'épices, assez proche d'un rhum agricole pour moi.
En bouche, il n'est ni trop sec, ni trop sucré. On retrouve un mélange de fruits exotiques, d'épices et de canne, sans qu'une saveur prenne réellement le dessus.
Quoi qu'il en soit, il est plutôt costaud et ne manque pas de corps!
Un rhum agréable à découvrir, mais pas forcément accessible aux personnes préférant les rhums plus doux et plus sucrés!
This rum was bit disappointing ,I was expecting something smoother. That said, it is a good rum ,just not one that I would prefer to sip. The strong rum flavour makes the best rum and coke.
The nose is nice and fruity with a slight whiff of that classic Jamaican funk reminding me of a mixture of gumdrops, wooden lacquer and overly ripe bananas. Nosing it further, I also pick up raisins, chocolate, vanilla, cane sugar and a bit of oak. Very appealing. The notes from the nose follow through in the mouth. Besides being fairly aromatic and potent, it's also a little bit sweet with a creamy texture, finishing on nutmeg and a bit of black pepper.
Very delicious and approachable "everyday" Jamaican, flirting with an 8.
This is a very tasty rum if you can find it for a decent price. I know that limited releases of products will only increase in price over time but for what I paid for this $55, it is truly a good expression of Jamaican rum. The taste is quite nice with a good amount of funk and the signature Plantation mellowness to round it all out. Definitely not as funks as like the Smith & Cross but it still has a good amount more so than the Xaymaca. If you get the opportunity to try this or to buy a bottle at a decent price, definitely do so just don't overpay for this unless it is for investment/ collector purposes.
A wonderful sipping rum with light amber color and a medium sweetness, somewhat flowery in its midtaste as you discard the initial nice heat that accompanies it.
