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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Avec de l eau perrier c est un rhum desalterant....
Good sipper but wouldn't feel blasphemous to mix. Hard to find in the USA. Your not missing the best rum in the world if you can't get it.
Was a decent drink with coke but didn't blow me away completely.... Drinkable but nothing rave about
Very sweet and mild. A full taste of mainly oak, with some caramel and aniseed. One of my favourites.
Strong spicy rum with sweet aromas, a little sweet aftertaste. Whisky drinkers will enjoy the sharpness
Very light golden colour, almost like ginger ale.
Not much smell.
Slight chemicals on first taste but still good.
Tasted at the same time as the 20th anniversary xo and you can taste the same cognac finish. Just not as deep.
For the price this is a very good rum and was my introduction to plantation which is now one of my favourite run brands.
I disagree with people who claim this is not a sipping rum. For its price point i think it is a decent sipping rum. Brown sugar sweetness to it with no harsh after taste. Pretty smooth thru and thru.
Double vieillissement dans les futs de bourbon et par la suite de chêne, lui donne un gout d épice grillée et de bois. Très bon rapport qualité et prix. Assez difficile a trouvé, il vaut la peine d'être déguster. Persistance des arômes en bouche.
