A sweet rum at a wonderful price. This surely opens up the door for me to try the many other varieties of Plantation.
Basic mixer for normal drinks and those you give to people who dont know what they are drinking,.
No sure on the age but its a good after dinner drink and very sweet. Add some ice and a little lime and its a good cocktail.
This is a fabulous rum. Yes it has a high ABV, but this is sipping rum, if you really want to appreciate it. This is the kind of rum that bourbon drinkers will switch to when summer arrives. Complex. It's not for pina coladas or for mixing with Coke. If you're new to rum, start with something else, this is for experienced drinkers that appreciate what a rum can be. Four Square is one of the best rum distillers in the world and this is one of their best.
Smells....strange, like a freshly burnt caramel apple. Tastes....off. Definitely a fruity, almost green sour apple and burnt toffee/caramel taste. Sweet finish but a weird and not pleasing aftertaste.
I’ve been enjoying the bottle for years. Slight honey, caramel on the nose; slight citrus, pronounced vanilla across the palette; warm tones across the back of the throat; nice bottle!
This was hard to find, had high expectations. Very smooth, somewhat oaky. I seem to taste a bit of cinnamon, maybe pecan, but dont really notice any molasses or vanilla. Seems to be balanced between sweet and strong. Just something missing for me on this one.
So Guyana, Barbados, Jamaica and Panama... in one bottle... no sugar... no additives... no coloring.. no chill filtering... and all playing nice together??? Hell yes!!! First thought upon nosing... yep, there's the Jamaican, you funky little b@stard! Not overpowering or off-putting for those that don't dig the funk, but more than something like an Appleton. Initial sip... on the front end there's definitely that Bajan style that's my personal favorite. Dry, oak, fruit, toffee. The mid and finish are where the Guyanese and Panamanian influences come in. Sweetness. Just a hint of sweetness... which leads to a lonnnng finish of everything I dig in a rum. Dark fruits... caramel... bananas foster... oak. Paid $48 in D/FW. There were 2 on the shelf. Will be going back for the other one tomorrow.
Arrgh, this barely be a rum! Handy when you be three sheets to the wind already, but that be all. Not for sippin'. No strong flavor, no spice, no fruit, no nothin'... nothin' but alcohol. Aye, I don't go for pollutin' ANY rum with other things, but this rum be an exception...
Not a fan of drinking white rums straight up. I prefer them mixed. This one wasn't the worst I've tried, but as with most white rums, it was a bit harsh.
Nice combo of light sweetness with an interesting smoky vanilla note from the Jack Daniel's barrels it is aged in. Not the sweet and molasses notes as many aged rums. Smooth finish with cola notes.
