Wow, wow, wow. I have read the reviews beforehand, so I was expecting to be good, but damn for the price it has to be the best value among white rums. Complex, smooth, easily mixable - amazing for Daiquiris. In a blind taste I could have mistaken it for a dark rum. If you haven't tried it yet, grab a bottle and enjoy!

Good in mohjitos, Caipirissimas and other drinks that require the usage of light rum. Nevertheless i hate You Plantation. Stop adding suggar

I really enjoy the vanilla, spicy notes of this rum. For a white rum I believe this is quite unusual. From the blend of the 3 historical rum-producing countries: Trinidad, Barbados and ..Jamaica ! I recommend it in Daiquiri, so delicious !

This is a good light rum. It doesn't really taste like a classic light rum; other reviewers have said it's a filtered gold rum. Smells and tastes of oak, sugarcane, nuts, vanilla, tobacco, and subtle spice.

Gold rums are my least favorite style, but this is nice, either for a gold, or a light rum.

Another awesome plantation rum in my cabinet! So I`ve heard that this is a dark rum in a white disguise, it's been filtred to get a white colour. Thinks that's pretty neat because I don't think I would have bought it otherwise. White rum usually don't interest me but the plantation 3 stars certainly do! I think it's suppose to be a mixer rum but I drank it as a sipper. And what a treat it was! Looks awkward to have a white rum poured in your glass but your in for a surprise. This is a mix of three other rums from Jamaica, Barbados and Trinidad. The mix is done very well. The smell is a tone of sweet vanilla and coconuts. And taste is sweet and smooth with honey, dark chocolate and vanilla. The price is more than ok. In the same price range with the plantation original dark! Go and buy!

There's a reason this rum stands above all others in its category. Plantation knows what they're doing here, and they're indeed doing it well. A blend of young and aged rums, filtered to remove most—but not all—color, leaving much of the original "character" intact. (In the bottle it's a very light straw color—not completely "white"). The end result is that this rum is far more interesting than most other "white" rums, and it's actually sippable!

There is only the faintest whiff of alcohol on the nose, accompanied by glimpses of flavors more commonly associated with aged rum. On the palate, the rum is sugary and delicious. A fan of dryer rums, I find this one not overly sweet, but it's a close call. Plantation has added minimal sugar (by their standards), though, as always, I don't think it needs it.

In color and flavor I might compare it to 10 Cane (Trinidad, 7-), though I don't currently have a bottle handy, and it costs nearly twice as much per oz. So the 3-Star is the clear winner there.

Of course, it's primary intended use is as a mixer. Here it performs admirably! Falling somewhere between a traditional "white" and "gold/dark" rum in flavor profile, one strapped for bar space could potentially use it as both. But more likely it will be used when "white" rum is called for. As such the results are delicious, though I can't help but think that I'm adding more body or sweetness than the recipe-maker originally intended. Hence, I would recommend stocking a bottle of this, as well as a lighter, dryer offering, such as Flor de Cana 4 Extra Seco (oh, yes, and W&N Overproof, because, seriously).

All in all, pretty solid. An 8 or a 9 against its peers. But it is rather sweet, and I still can't shake the thought that I'm somehow not honoring classic recipes by using it... maybe I'll get over that someday, and adjust my rating accordingly. It truly is a value white rum for people who actually taste what they mix with. We could use more of those!

A good "white" rum no doubt, and perhaps the best value you can get in this catagory. The nose is fresh and fruity with notes of pineapple, grass, citrus and molasse. Sipped neat, the fairly smooth palette brings notes of vanilla, citrus, pineapple and a bit of barrel. It has a great balance, and it's one of the few white rums I sincerely enjoy neat. Obviously it's killer in cocktails.

Can be sipped but this is not where it shines.
As a white cocktail rum, it is above the rest.
My absolute favorite daiquiri rum.

Tasted this rum at a restaurant after having a typical Swedish Christmas buffet.
It’s a blend of rum from Jamaica, Barbados and Trinidad with 10gpl added sugar.
The nose is spicy, fruity, vegetal with hints of arrack and banana.
In mouth, at the palate and during medium long finish it’s sweet, vegetal and spicy with tastes of tropical fruits and arrack.
Overall a quite bland rum that can’t compete with the best ones.
