Nice enough Demerarra Plantation, caramel, fudge en tropical fruits upfront, followed by spices and a slight burn.
Un rhum traditionnel de la Guyane Britannique, Guyana 1999 est dense et marqué par des notes de bois précieux, de cardamome, d'orange amère et de mirabelle.
I was looking for demerera toffiness in this fum, but I have discovered weird brandy aroma with column still density in my glass. It doesn't worth it's money for its weak taste and strong brandy aroma, that breaks through the mix (if you mixing it in a tiki cocktail)
The better Guyana rums are El Dorado 12 and 15 for mixing and sipping respectivly.
I were You, rumlover, i would try to avoid this one
Cильный, насыщенный аромат с нотками солёного сала, жду чего-то в стиле сент-люсии, но вкус более традиционный, с дубом, лёгкими нотками обожжённого дерева, цитрусовыми и маслянистостью, достаточно сладок, весьма неплохо. 8/10
Until Fiji, Peru and St. Lucia come to my province.
Sweet plums into light pears that are quickly overwhelmed by the potent burn. It tastes young. I havent had many young vs old rum comparisons side by side but I feel as though with this rum they tried it, went "oh wow plums" and then decided to call it there. As I continue to drink, however, Ive decided that this is one of those rums that I typically dont have enough patience to truely appreciate. It really keeps evolving long after you swallow. After being stumped by a fruit flavour of the extraordinarily long after taste, I decided to read the bottle, something I usually do at the end of the review as to no colour my perception. Unfortunately, the bottle did not tell me what that fruit flavour was, and I am afraid I may never find out. The bottle did, however say that its taste could last up to 10 minutes. It lied. I was on minute fifteen before I decided to search for the name of that fruit flavour. Several types of grapes and that elusive fruit last in the mouth for what feels like forever. Truly excellent once you get accustomed to the burn and discover its lasting aftertaste.
P.s. Theres nothing quite like the cork of a full bottle of plantation
The Plantation Guyana 1999 Rum is a pot distilled, Demerara rum which is produced from molasses using an extra long fermentation period prior to distillation. The rum is first aged in Guyana in used bourbon barrels after which it is transported from Jamaica to France by Cognac Ferrand to be finished in their own warehouses and of course their own Cognac Casks. It has a spicy character with a good balance between the hot wood spices and the butterscotch/toffee sweetness.
