I can't really recall details, it's been a while. But I enjoyed it so much, that I wanted another bottle ever since. It looks good on the shelf too
Bought it because it seemed good value, based on its ratings and because it was measured on different websites for added sugar and it had none. Tastes good but not great. Wouldn't use it as a gift or when I have guests but perfect for a glass after a long day.
I'm a passive reader here for a while now and I just registered to tell you: This is the best rum I've tasted so far. But I don't know how much this is worth to you (I'm into high quality rum for some years now and this is the first 30YO). Bought it for a friends 30th birthday. It was a great night. I tasted new things with every sip and it was exceptionally smooth. After the night, most of the bottle was gone but I didn't feel bad, since I got it relatively cheap. Great value in the upper-mid-range I think. There are 30YO that cost twice as much and I can't imagine them tasting twice or even 1,5 times as good.
Was undrinkable, left it on the shelf for mixing. Now, after 15+ years, it actually decent for drinking!
We were surprised by this one. It gets very high ratings but we found it to be light in flavor or personality and so so high in alcohol fumes! It’s intense, not smooth with quite a bite. Made into a rum old fashioned it was just ok.
Cozumel rum is light in color and has slight vanilla nose. It is spicy initially but after ten minutes of breathing it is moderartely pleasant, not the best spiced rum I've had but a nice selection.
(I am not a connoisseur)
It looks like the "good" rums from the supermarkets. Sweet, with an exaggerated and not very sophisticated flavor. It burns.
This rum is powerful and burns from the first sensations. I would say that it is dry, it reminds me of a whisky. I feel a lot the taste of oak, with a very weak fruity flavor.
However, it is not to my personal taste.
Bought in Colombia, in Manizales, I was surprised by the sweetness of this rum.
I'm not a great connoisseur, but what struck me was the lack of burn, and the soft sweetness of this rum, which is not overdone. There is a hint of vanilla.
A friend offered me this beautiful bottle, insisting on its divine character ...
First opinion: it burns at the beginning, then releases a sweet perfume (caramel, vanilla...).
It is not of my taste, I find that it resembles the rums that you can buy in supermarkets (Don Papa, etc.).
Then I saw this bottle by chance in a more specialized store, at an exorbitant price (+115€). I think it's quite expensive for a rum that is close to the ones you can buy in supermarkets.
I am not a connoisseur, but having read the label of the product I notice that they use food coloring (caramel). I don't think this is a good thing
Nose: very pleasant and pleasing. Subtle and pretty complex. Very nice aromas!
Taste: not too sweet and not too dry either. I get coffee, tobacco, cocoa, a hint of dark chocolate. The feel in the mouth is Smith, silky and buttery. The afterburn is characterized by some bitterness which is very pleasant.
Na to, že má jen 5 let tak překvapuje plnou a vyzrálou chutí. Je příjemně ostrý a suchý. Za pětistovku super rum.
Kis süteményes beütés,kellemes illat jellemzi.
Az íz már elmarad az illattól.
Note 8.2, ce rhum sur des notes can elle très marquée et vanillée est très original et bien fait. Super rapport qualité prix. Idéal, pour débuter l agricole, comme un bon damoiseau vsop plus sur la vanille
Now this is a quality light rum. Its main virtue is its versatility. Goes well with anything that goes with rum, makes especially great daiquiris and unlike most light rums, it can also be sipped without being offensive or hard to drink. Like most of the Plantation line, it's well balanced. However, do consider its jack of all trades, master of none nature when buying, because aged rums are better for sipping (and Plantation's own 5-year isn't that much more expensive than the 3 Star), and most light rums are almost as good for mixing and cost less.
