Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Full bodied, oily, allmond like aroma and taste, light sweet. Well ballanced rum, one of my all time favourites.
One of the latest addition in the Plantation portfolio, the updated version is actually a blend of rums from neighbouring Guatemala and Belize. Guatemala at least produces their rums using fermented sugar cane honey (evaporated sugar cane juice) instead of the traditional molasses. Guatemala also uses a mix of bourbon and sherry cask for aging in their own solera system. This makes it quite difficult to put an age statement on the label, and was confirmed by the Ferrand/ Plantation brand ambassador at a tasting event last November.
I went through a bottle of Gran Anejo with some of my friends last summer paring it with some nice cuban cigars. Montecristo no2 to be precise. Honestly the cigar was a bit overpowering, and maybe a lighter Hoyo de Monterrey would be a better match. Even then, the rum was delicious, with some dark chocolate aromas and flavours, and a distinctive licorice finish.
I bought another bottle :)
Sweet scent and sweet taste as well, that is followed by sharp spiciness and pungent hay aftertaste.
Whiskey aficionados might like it.
This Rum is so beautifully balanced in alcohol, body and natural sweetness with perfect notes of wood, and slight notes of chocolate and plums. A lovely piece of distilling work, satisfying the sipping afficionado with a taste for balanced, mild spirits.
A very pleasant sipping experience. Relaxing, soft. Beautiful work.
Nice rum! starts with Scents of tobacco, spices and vanilla, turns to a sweet woody taste. I love it! Also the bottle is really nice with the decoration on the bottle.
Til prisen har den rigtig meget at byde på. Skøn rom, en blanding af frugt og sprit, uden for meget kunstig sødme.
I was a bit surprised when I smelled it in the glass. The taste was also very different from the Grande Reserva and the 20-year old. I missed the smell and taste of something that's in the other 2. I always think of raisins, but I'm not very good at naming ingredients in drinks or food. But after that surprise I'm still able to appreciate this rum. Very full-flavoured, heavy taste. Sweet with a nice (I guess) woody after taste. I had the feeling to light up a cigar with it, even though I don't like cigars much.
Pretty good for its price!
Friendly, taste and average (which means very good) Plantation.
Great rum one of my favorites. Try it! Sweet but not to much.
In contrast with my review of plantation barbados, we really enjoyed this one. Pleasant sipper.
Ikke smagt. .
Det var nummer to plantation jeg har smagt vildt overrasket, dufter dejligt af frugt og kokos vanilje og smager også af frugt, kokos, vanilje faktisk Rom til prisen
Har ikke smag den i nu så kan ikke sige hvordan den smager.
Just wow. This is a really well crafted rum and a perfect initiation to the Plantation brand.
(39.00 CAD in Dec 2016)
Ich schmecke Minze, Kokos, etwas Orange, Feige, Bitterschokolade. Sehr komplex, langer Nachhall.
Velmi dobrý jemný rum. Chuť byla ale taková nevýrazná, proto 7z10.
En super god rom med lidt skarp kant. Den tager ikke skade af at stå 5-10 minutter.
Fruitée et épicée mais ce Rhum est un peu fort en bouche
An excellent rum that I enjoyed very much.
Strong after taste.
One of my all time hits with some many bottles finished in my bar
Despite we lost to Germany at euro 2016 I've decided to try something new. And once again I don't regret. Rum is definitely best drink in the world and with this one you can be only happy. Nice aroma, good middle and sharper finish. Just the way I like it.
This rum is like paying Mercedes prices for a Volkswagon... It's a very good Anjeo but for that price there is much better out there.
one of my favorite. Very pleasant taste. For a very reasonable price
until 2015 you could buy this kind of stuff. now its over. now you have to get a bottle of guatemala & belize. the taste is very similar. if you know this, you can buy the replacement rum without hesitation. this one is not very good, but its also not very expensive. its good for a simple sip. thats it.
