Better than Bacardi White 🙂. Pleasant sugary nose, like Brown sugar or caramel. Not sweet tasting, slight burn at the neck of the mouth.
We used it for mojitos though, and it worked very well.
Bought a bottle of Montanya Platino while vacationing in San Diego. Fairly plain and cheap looking bottle and label design. Quite a strong alcohol mixed with light vanilla and mild oak to the nose and palate. Medium burn at the end. Surprisingly the Platino is better than the Oro.
I have never met a white Rum I would sip until this one. It sips more like an aged rum but works in strong cocktails like a daiquiri more like a light rum. I will never make a daiquiri with anything else. Crisp, light, smooth, with a great but subtle vanilla finish. I am a fan of this company’s sustainability work too. I care about cane workers and good environmental practices. I hear they take good care of their employees too because I met one (not an owner) at a tasting event once.
I typically only like dark rums but this one is awesome and local to crested butte Colorado
I really don't find much flavor in crystal rums. Would be fine for mixed drinks. Didn't have any of the off flavors I've found in similar rums.
Aroma: soft, sweet I get vanilla, perhaps a bit of almost licorice. This is an aged rum (in Oak barrels) so I do get just a hint of almost floral in nature. Crisper than I'd expect, let's taste.
The sweetness happens first, then a very crisp transformation to an almost peppery end. At 80 proof , it has just a pleasing bite up-front. The sweetness tends to stay on the tongue and the edges finish with a dry, clean taste. The aftertaste is slight - I find drier. Very nice indeed. While a great mixer - this Plantino is just a much at home in any glass with a splash, a rock and some time.
