Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is Island life in liquid form. Closest I can get to a beach, ocean breeze, waves at my feet, and an arm around Rihanna all from my living room.
I tred several Platation The Vingage series, which was as good a choice as Nicaragua 2003 and Peru 2004.
Very enjoyable.It has vanilla, coconut, baked fruits, and a deep flavor like chocolate.
Ce rhum est moins sur l agrume que le20eme anniversaire.Mais ses notes vanillées et léger agrumes sont un régal.trés bon rhum plus traditionnel que le 20 ème anniversaire.pour les puristes c est un régal.meme si le20eme anniversaire Barbade reste au dessus.note globale 8.5.
See, Brugal uses a fish net stocking. Typical!
You, you use plant fiber to trap your rum. Now that's initiative!
And what you've caught is a totally decent amber sipper for the price point. Hell, it's even been a great substitute for darks in Dark 'n Stormies. But back to it - totally worth kicking back and relaxing with on the rocks. It's got all the good dessert flavors, plus a smoldering oaky ember on the backend.
Comparable to Diplomatico Reserva, minus the dried fruit notes.
Purchased at Total Wine - $53.99. My favorite rum is the Plantation 20 Yr which I use as a benchmark. This 2001 Barbados is a bit lighter in color, not as deep amber as others. Light nose with a slight smell of alcohol. Even though it is 42% alcohol, the taste is a bit lighter than expected. Clean with a very smooth finish. Very enjoyable - I'll want to try the others from this collection as well.
I don't know if I got a weird batch, but I'm having the hardest time deciphering this flavor profile. Yes I read the label, but I'm still confused. I taste banana, but that's all. I agree with the "softness" of it. I will admit it is an amazingly smooth rum and is a great sipper, however the flavor throws me off. I'm merely ranking it from the smoothness and the drinkability.
Let it rest a minute to breathe. Sip. Stop. Rest. Repeat. Patiently. This has got spunk. And funk. Stays with you. Stewed Stone fruit? Dry. Good.
Plantation Barbados 2001
Origine : Barbados
Nez : cire, miel, fleur , odeur iodé, (léger)
Bouche :note iodé, fruit sec, pain grillé vers la finale
One of the better ones from the Plantation vintage line up
Rum barbadosról. 11 évet érett bourbonos hordóban..igazán komplex ízkavalkád. Édesgyümölcsös, picit mentás, pikáns fűszeres,minden egyes korty igazi felfedezés , a palack is mutatós !!
42% ABV. N: Hmm, rubbing alcohol that fortunately dissipates quickly. Dark caramel. Noticeable pot-still influence. P: No surprises here. You get balanced oak, cane, molasses, fruit. Trademark Plantation sweetness, but nicely tempered. Goes down easy.
Way better than the 5-year "Grand Reserve," but still kinda boring IMO. Good for the beginning collector (who also drinks, of course).
Great sipper, sweet but not to much. fairly priced but hard to find these days.
Excellent rum from Barbados. Clasic, off-swet rum, with medium intense citrus nose, harmonic and enjoyable warm rum. Very long, integrated alkohol.
This one seems to go by different names. Mine is called a Gand Cru, but i think it's essentially the same rum just with a different label.
It has a faint smell of stewed fruit, pineapple and banana. Those flavours are all present in the mouth, as are an alcoholic burn, a dryness and a deep lying sweetness, a subtle hint of brown sugar and maybe the slight zest of star fruit. Certainly, it has more of a tropical note than many rums.
Even if you hadn't seen the bottle, you'd know instantly that this was a Plantation rum. It has that sweetness to it (here in the background rather than foreground) and that smell of tropical fruits and the warming burn on the tongue and back of the throat - not harsh but certainly powerful.
This is bottled at 42% so has a depth, and it is perhaps a little resonant of the Pineapple Stiggins in that there's a strong hint of fruit - but here that fruit is a subtle mixed note, whereas the Stiggins is clearly pineapple in the middle of the flavour though not overpoweringly so. This is also an older rum, much less sweet, more composed and the kick is much more subtle compared to the Stiggins, which has the kick of a mule if you let it hit the back of your throat.
All in all a very fine rum and certainly a refined sipper worthy of time and, perhaps, a fine cigar.
This has to be one of the lightest rums i have ever tasted. coconut in flavor with a splash of pineapple.
It would be great on a hot day at the beach. then again, so would anything.
Hozza amit Barbadosról kell, könnyű-közepes test, lágy vajkaramellás illat, kicsi vanília. Nem egy komplex ezerízű rum, egyszerűen kerek. A szájban egyáltalán nem éget inkább melenget, nagy élmény kortyolgatni, és úgy érzed édesnek, hogy eszedbe sem jut a cukor.
A true rum. Very aromatic flavours and I have to say it's the best rum I've ever used for sunstroke!
Barbados 2001 Plantation in itself is not a bad rum, but comparing it to a very similarly priced XO 20th Anniversary and you will be in a different league in a heart beat. Barbados 2001 has much stronger burn and much less flavors than the older sibling XO 20th Anniversary. Save your money and go straight to the best rum out there.
Full of flavor on the nose. Coconut, sweet spices (nutmeg, vanilla), tropical fruit basket (banana, unripe mango)
Sweet tropical fruit such as banana will first hit your mind and follow with fully ripped pineapple. Buttery, sweet spices and honey too.
Cotton candy finishing with a light toasted aroma lingering.
A good bottle from Plantation!
Άλλο ένα τίμιο καλό ρούμι από την σειρά Plantation την οποία φαίνεται να εκτιμώ όλο και περισσότερο. Αναπόφευκτη η σύγκριση με το 5αρι λόγο της κοινής καταγωγής τους (Barbados) . Λίγο μεγαλύτερη ένταση και λίγο μεγαλύτερη διάρκεια , ίδια γεύση και αρώματα ...... ΟΚ θα προτιμήσω ένα 5αρι αλλά αν βρεθεί στο δρόμο μου δε θα του χαριστώ ......
Smooth, butterscotch notes. really enjoyed this one.
Longue finale. au nez on dénote un peu de vanille et muscade. Au goût fruité chêne et poivré. J adore le double vieillissement. 12 ans fut de bourbon et 3 ans dans fur Pierre Ferrand château de bonbonnet.
Excepțional, parfumat și cu un aftertaste simplu dar foarte elegant. Un rom deosebit cu o aromă unică. Only on the rocks!
This is another nice rum from Plantation. Some are sweet at times but nothing a little water or ice can't cut or it means you just need to add less sugar to a mixed drink if you use their product.
