Medium sweetness and quite easy. Smokey taste/smell, some ripe fruit (banana). Lacking aftertaste though.


Te taste is quite smooth with out any strong aromat, strong flavour of alcohol


I liked it a lot. A little bit of alcohol taste, but only little. With that cost rate it is a awesome choice.


Fruktig, söt, bränt socker.
Mild söt smak.
Oljig, fyllig och rund.
Helt ok.


Standard dark rum with a little pungent taste. For me a overrated rum.

Ikke smagt. .


Very impressive rum for its price! Quite strong and quite sweet. With a great flavor of citrus, carnation and of course.. banana!! That's very unusual for rums to be with banana flavor. Its prefect to drink it pure, with no ice or cola.
But there is one thing. This description is only applicable for Original Dark with date of bottling 2014! The bottle should have this ticket!

This is quite good rum for that price, you feel quite sticky tail cause by the shorter time of maturation, but OK.


Paid $17.96 in NYC. I expected any Plantation rum would knock it out of the park, but I was awakened by this one. Upon opening, I noticed a different smell - there is a distinct aroma but I can't put my finger on it. The bottle calls it a "rum funk" which I would have to agree. Some type of spice that puts this rum 3-4 notches below the Plantation 5 or 20th Anniversary.


Not my top choice by far but still a good rum. It has good flavors to it and for the price it is worth it.


Good and smooth rummi with nice after taste to all rumm lovers


I tried it and it tastes to me. In my opinion this is correct rum at a good price. When you search a cheapes rum you should buy it.


Very nice smooth rum. Mild tast, but at bit strong alcohol taste.


Tasty rum. Very good to make an good Rum Old fashioned.


Great smell to it and it's pretty tasty too. Makes a great Cuba lebra.


Vzhledem k ceně není nejhorší, trošku ostřejší ale stále chutná


Un bon petit rhum pour le prix. Pas extraordinaire mais un goût assez original! :-)


Dark colored tastes like bourbon. Great to mix with coke.
That's about it.


Sweet smell, nice caramel colour, no hay-like taste like other Plantation rums. Simple taste, not woody, not spiced. Simply sweet and fruity.


I kind of expected a bit more from this rum. Even as a mixer it kind of disappointed.


En effet sur des notes fumees de bitume de reglisse il est plus sucre et un peu moins precis qu un mezan xi.Mais c vraiment un bon rhum.de plus il n est pas cher a 24 euros il est un super rapport qualite prix.il est mieux equilibre et moins dur le bitume qu un platation st lucie 2001.A essayer su vs recherchez ce type de rhum il est facile pour entrer dans cette palette aromatique.note 7.4.


Amber color. Smokiness with hints of dried fruit.Too harsh for me as a sipper. Adding ice made it passable. Certainly works well as a mixer with lime and as others have said can be had for a good price. Just average but hey it's rum so enjoy.


Even though I am not a big fan of Plantation this rum is somehow drinkable, considering the rather low price. But for me its not more and not less than that.
Btw: I tried the new version with the sticker "original dark" on top of the label (see picture from Ramon on 7 Aug '16 ).


Alkohol: 40 %
Původ: Trinidad a Tobago
Aroma: Na to, že se jedná o jeden z nejlevnějších rumů pod značkou Plantation, je vůně na dost vysoké úrovni. Středně těžká i plná. Sladkost asi 1/3, s exotickým dřevem, těžkou ovocností, medem, medovinou, lehce i cedrem a tabákem. (85 b)
Chuť: Na jazyku se míchá jemnost s pikantní štiplavostí a nasládlostí koření, rumové pralinky. Je to takový ten klasický rumový styl, kdy opravdu nepřemýšlíte, jestli vám náhodou nepřipomíná brandy nebo sherry whisky. Působí navíc silněji, než na 40%, a je i dost výrazný. (83 b)
Body: 84
Shrnutí: Ochutnal jsem díky českolipskému podniku Kavárna/bar Kocour, kde jsem zakoupil 60 ml vzorky pro další společnou degustaci v Hořicích u josého. V chuti mu ještě chybí větší vyzrálost a firma samotná ho doporučuje jako mixer, ale na mě udělal solidní dojem, obzvlášť když uvážíme, že se dá sehnat už od 340 korun. Pokud sháníte levný karibský rum, ať už do drinků nebo pro nenáročné popíjení třeba na chatě či u táboráku, jste na dobré adrese.
