Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is actually a dark rum, but cold filtered to compete in the segment of white rums.
The make up of the bottle is amazing and emphasises it's origin. Regarding the taste:
Actually, if you compare this rum with other white rums, you could sip this rum, sounds crazy but it isn't. The rum is pretty smooth with some lights of sweetness.
Comes out great generally in cocktails.
This rum surprised me from many stand points. I was impressed by the packaging, the blending, price point, nose, and most importantly the taste. This rum goes down smoothly but has a little bite to it to remind you its rum at least in a double shot. This rum is going on the list as one of my favorites at an incredible price. I've only had it straight up as this point but I think that is all I need. Why water down this great rum? I could sip this straight anytime.
I can get this locally for $20 a ltr. and always have a bottle on hand. When people ask me what's a good light rum this is my recommendation.
Ok so it's not a sipping rum cause it's white.... Or is it? When you hold this rum up to light you'll notice a very off clear color almost between a light and a white rum. The taste neat is fruitful, although strong, it is nowhere near that of any white I have come across, in fact it's better then a lot of "dark" rums when it comes to its ability to be sipped. Mixed is where it shines beautiful in mojitos and even better in coke. Right now this has been my go to for cocktails.
I was never a white rum fan, but this one was a pleasant surprise. I've been a big fan of Plantation's XO 20th Anniversary, so I expected their white to be good, and it didn't disappoint. With eyes closed, you would think it's a dark aged rum - it's quite smooth. Just a touch of sweetness with a very nice finish. It's good enough to drink straight.
A good "white" rum no doubt, and perhaps the best value you can get in this catagory. The nose is fresh and fruity with notes of pineapple, grass, citrus and molasse. Sipped neat, the fairly smooth palette brings notes of vanilla, citrus, pineapple and a bit of barrel. It has a great balance, and it's one of the few white rums I sincerely enjoy neat. Obviously it's killer in cocktails.
This is a very good white rum, full of flavor and it mixes well with everything. Excellent!
I had the pleasure of tasting this for the first time in the Bahamas at Rum Bahamas. It won 1st place for the whites there for good reason. It is very clean and tastes great. I have loved each release from Plantation, but was curious how they would do whites. I was not disappointed.
Købt til og kun brugt som mixer rom til mojitos.....
Hatte Bedenken, weil weißer Rum. War doch überrascht, dass er ziemlich gut schmeckt, vor Allem, bei dem Preis! Fruchtig, nicht süß, etwas Schärfe, warm, Orange, Vanille.
That was my first white rum and I rate it average. I was drinking version Plantation Original Dark Double Aged and tested me better as the white.
Det her er nok min pt foretrukne hvide rom,
kan drikke den, både ren og mixet op med sodavand eller hvad man syntes
den er ligeledes til at betale, og jeg vil til hver en tid, vælge denne fremfor diverse reklame mærker
Little burn, vanilla notes, actually nice for sipping, but it really shines in coktails.
I use this rum for Cuba libre, daiquiris, and mojitos. I reserve ones for the absolute best in its category, So I am only comparing it to other white rums, not dark ones that you would sip in straight up. So far this is the best white rum I have had (If I find a noticeably better one I will knock this one down to a 9). I haven't tried tons of premiums whites but can safely say this is my favorite.
Price is weighed lightly in my rating. I paid $25 for a 1 liter bottle
Of course, it does not have notes of those that appear after 5 years of aging. Whatever the taste is pleasant, no rudeness. Honey, fruit. And alcohol is 41.2 felt, not masked by sugar.
Det er en ok hvid rom som ikke går over i historien men er fin til fest og er til både ren og med cola eller is. Prisen er også ok.
Pour les cocktails, il est parfait. Il a tellement de goût qu'on peut même le boire pur.
Ce mix est une réussite et donne un rhum blanc doux mais savoureux, idéal en cocktail, mon pêché mignon pour une pina colada.
This is a very nice "white" rum , it can be a sipper , its good enough but i prefer it as an excellent mixer. This will be my white rum of choice from now on. Really fruity and i can pick out the Jamaican influence very easily.
Don't waste your money on Bacardi when for $10 more you can have this quality product..
Plantation are becoming some of my favourite rums , i have just managed to find and purchase a bottle of the Trinidad 25 year old Single Cask , only 300 made !
This guy really is lovely.
First, after you pour, you will smell bananas. When you take a sip, you will feel the subtle tones of wooden barrel and the added sugar finishes the kiss...
After the mouthful empties, the only thought on your mind will be of another gulp.
Lovely, jst lovely...
Assemblage de trois grands crus caribéens, ce rhum blanc possède à la fois richesse et subtilité, jouant tout d’abord dans un registre pâtissier avec ses notes de sucre roux, de banane flambée et d’ananas confit rehaussées de délicates touches de vanille gourmandes. Puis viennent les notes florales, végétales et légèrement épicées pour ne pas dire poivrées, indispensables à un grand rhum blanc !
I've been attempting to support independent spirits producers in my spirits purchases, attempting to avoid buying brands owned by any of the major liquor conglomerates. This isn't easy to do, by any means. I was happy when I learned that Cognac Ferrand, the respected cognac producer (and, maker of Citadelle gin) produced the excellent Plantation line of rums.
Plantation three-star rum is a white rum blend of rums from Barbados, Jamaica and Trinidad, following Ferrand's tradition of aging the rums on their islands of origin, and then sending the rum to France for additional aging at Chateau de Bonbonnet. This rum is bottled at 82.4 proof. This rum evinces a deliciously fragrant nose with hints of vanilla and spice. The taste is smooth, with the rum's molasses origins clearly coming through on the palate. Plantation three-star is superb in cocktails, smooth enough to be a great mixer, but, with an assertiveness and depth of flavor that takes it beyond standard white rum offerings (e.g., Bacardi).
If you read the original press release for the rum's introduction back in 2012, Cognac Ferrand proprietor Alexandre Gabriel basically concedes that the white rum category is a crowded space dominated by huge corporations, so, this offering didn't make sense for a tiny house such as his, from a purely fiscal standpoint. But, because he believed that he and his team could produce a superior product, he chose to do it. That's the kind of entrepreneurial spirit that anyone can drink to, and, also, gumption and artistic daring that I'm happy to support.
At a price of roughly $18.99 per bottle, Plantation three-star is a great rum and a great value, as well.
This is the first white rum I have tried, so I figured Plantation would be a good way to go. I was surprised to find that this somehow smells and tastes like an aged rum (younger though, maybe 5-8 years) and a blanco tequila. I wish I could go into more specifics than "tequilaesque rum," but that's really all I get out of it. Though in once I stop and think about it, that's exactly what I should have been expecting out of this, so I can't really say I'm disappointed! This works wonders in a myriad of cocktails though, so I will probably be keeping it around!
Since discovering this rum i'm addicted. It isn't you traditional white rum. Its actually dark but filtered. Never drink bacardi, havana club crap again. This is your substitute.
