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 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.

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.

From what I have read this rum is a blend of unaged rum from Barbados and Jamaica, three year old rum from Trinidad. and a twelve year old rum from Jamaica all of which is carbon filtered leaving a clear rum. Apparently the carbon filtering removes much of the oak tones from the aged rums in the blend. This leaves a rather smooth yet somewhat sweet white rum. The rum is rated at 41.2% ABV or 82.4 proof which is just a tad stronger than the typical 80 proof rum. The aroma in the glass and in the bottle is rather of simple alcohol with subtle hints of things I really cannot identify (I'm not all that good at figuring out smells) but the flavor is quite delightful. I detect molasses and vanilla in the flavor with a bit of a burn that fades into a sweet caramel aftertaste. Another winner from C. Ferrand. This could be used as a sipping rum if you're in a bind but it is better suited as a mixer. And at under $25 (U.S.) a bottle it is a very, very good bargain.

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.

Notes florales et épicés.
Rhum doux et très agréable pouvant plaire à beaucoup de monde.
Rien d’exceptionnel mais passe très bien au final !

Wow, i never expected a white rum to be this good. This is going to be my favorite summer rum! I love the hints of banana and the overall tropical flavour

Any drink that calls for white rum will benefit greatly from having this in it.

There's a reason this rum stands above all others in its category. Plantation knows what they're doing here, and they're indeed doing it well. A blend of young and aged rums, filtered to remove most—but not all—color, leaving much of the original "character" intact. (In the bottle it's a very light straw color—not completely "white"). The end result is that this rum is far more interesting than most other "white" rums, and it's actually sippable!

There is only the faintest whiff of alcohol on the nose, accompanied by glimpses of flavors more commonly associated with aged rum. On the palate, the rum is sugary and delicious. A fan of dryer rums, I find this one not overly sweet. Plantation has added minimal sugar (by their standards), though, as always, I don't think it needs it.

In color and flavor I might compare it to 10 Cane (Trinidad, 7-), though I don't currently have a bottle handy, and it costs nearly twice as much per oz. So the 3-Star is the clear winner there.

Of course, it's primary intended use is as a mixer. Here it performs admirably! Falling somewhere between a traditional "white" and "gold/dark" rum in flavor profile, one strapped for bar space could potentially use it as both. But more likely it will be used when "white" rum is called for. As such the results are delicious, though I can't help but think that I'm adding more body or sweetness than the recipe-maker originally intended. Hence, I would recommend stocking a bottle of this, as well as a lighter, dryer offering, such as Flor de Cana 4 Extra Seco (oh, yes, and W&N Overproof, because, seriously).

All in all, pretty solid. An 8 or a 9 against its peers. But it is rather sweet, and I still can't shake the thought that I'm somehow not honoring classic recipes by using it... maybe I'll get over that someday, and adjust my rating accordingly. It truly is a value white rum for people who actually taste what they mix with. We could use more of those!


Plantation 3-star has just rocketed to the top of my white rum for cocktails list. This is a serious rum that stands up to the most robust of tiki ingredients. The price point makes it an easy choice for a high quality, big flavor white.

Hodnocení je vztahu cena/výkon + bílý rum k tomu, jinak tak 2-3.
Všechny bílé rumy, co jsem dosud kdy ochutnal (všelijaké Havana Cluby apod.), mi přišly odporné a samostatně zcela nepoživatelné (a jelikož koktejly nerad, tak zcela nepoživatelné). S tímhle si dovedu představit, že by se dal strávit uspokojivý, i když ne bůhvíjak radostný večer. Na rozdíl od tak 90% jiných destilátů této cenové kategorie.
O vůni není ani řeči - nejblíž to má k lepší vodce. Zato chuť je opravdu překvapivá, jemná, sladká, příjemná a přitom naprosto nechemická (ať už je to v reálu udělané z čehokoliv). Je ale, pravda, poněkud fádní.
Jako překvapivě dobrý nápad se ukázalo smíchat to s Plantation Original Dark (, ať už in natura, nebo prostě jen prokládat panáky. Dark tomu přidá voňavost a chuť, 3 Stars jemnost a sladkost. Pro vyčerpanou peněženku rozhodně zdaleka nejlepší rumový mejdan, jaký se dá za ty prachy pořídit.

Stellar base rum for cocktails, have tried dozens and always come back to this one.

Vom Preis/Leistungsverhältnis ein klasse Rum zum mixen für viele Cocktails.

C’est un rhum passe partout qui pourra plaire à tout le monde. Il est doux, sans agressivité en bouche mais sans être fade non plus comme la plupart des rhums blancs de cette catégorie de prix. Les saveurs sont fruitées et épicés avec une touche sucrée en fin de bouche. Pas mal du tout, en tout cas le rapport qualité/prix est bon.

Surprisingly smooth and easy going. Big and soft in mouth. Feels spicy and hot, but is not.

Ce rhum goûte pas grand chose. Il est doux. Il faut dire que je ne suis pas amateur des rhum blanc. C,est pas un désastre mais je m 'attendais a un peu de complexité.


This white rum surpasses *many* a $20-$50 dark rum, but has an asking price of $20. This is an insane deal.

The rum itself is smooth, with a fruity nose. Tastes of bananas, coconuts, and sugar. Really delicious stuff. It's good enough that I'm, frankly, suspicious. How have so few other places produced such a delicious brew if Plantation can?

Pokud bychom se pohybovali pouze v kategorii bílých rumů či například v cenovém omezení do 400Kč, patřil by tento Plantation zcela jistě k těm nejzajímavějším. Pokud ovšem rozšíříme stejná kritéria hodnocení na všechny rumy bez omezení, považuji za naprosto férový výsledek "pouze" známku 5/10. Nejpříjemnějším zjištěním byla totiž „jen“ celková jemnost rumu s úplnou absencí hrubé lihovosti ve vůni i chuti, ale to samozřejmě na vyšší známkování nestačí. Příjemné třtinové aroma lze přirovnat k čerstvě posekané trávě, čímž je ale bohužel seznam objevených vůní i chutí definitivně vyčerpán. To však u bílého rumu překvapí jen málokoho a v míchaných nápojích může tedy být klidně za hvězdu. Pro samotné popíjení jej proto mohu nazvat pouze jako „neutrální“, ale nikoliv chutný, abych udělil známku 6/10. Při hodnocení nezapomínám ani na 12-13 gramů přidaného cukru, mající zejména u bílého rumu na výsledek zásadní vliv. Přesto si myslím, že výsledné hodnocení při plné konkurenci, pro tento rum za cenu cca 350Kč, v podstatě znamená zlatou medaili.

Great white rum! Tasted good on the rocks, neat, or mixed. No complaints, will keep in rotation. A bonus is it's 1L not 750ml.,😁

This is my go to for everyday enjoyment with friends to share, mix or on the rocks. Very decently priced, your friends will enjoy. Promise
