Plantation XO 20th Anniversary rum is a combination of pot-stilled and column-stilled Barbadian rums that are initially aged in the Caribbean in ex-bourbon casks for 12-20 years. They are then transported to France for a second 12-18 months aging in small French oak casks.
The first bottle of Plantation XO 20th Anniversary was created for the head of Cognac Ferrand Estate Alexandre Gabriel to honor his 20th year running the company. This special gift has resulted in the bottling we see today.
Poured neat, it's very light on the nose with just a hint of buttery toffee and caramel. The first sip has a heavy mouthfeel with a warm flavor that travels from the middle of the tongue to the back of the throat. It leaves behind just a little heat, and flavors of rum and caramel apple. I like it best with just one ice cube with brings out a bit more of that caramel apple flavor that I could drink all night. This is a great sipper!
A really nice well priced rum, love it but not to keen on the coconut taste in it.
On the nose I don't find vanilla as some other reviews have mentioned. It is a nice array of flavours but, coconut, marzipan and maybe tobacco hit me predominantly. Smooth going down and leaves a nice after taste.
This is a excellent sipper and probably my favourite. I love the look and it's absolutely fantastic to sip on. It's $76 CAD for the bottle which isn't as bad as many high end rums with less quality, this rum is great value.
If you're looking to spoil yourself and get a nice bottle - do it with this one. It's mid range price for a high end rum.
Aroma with tones of vanilla and eggnog
Lightly sweet taste with tones of chocolate, coconuts and some not specified fruit :)
This is an excellent Rum, although I preferred the Diplomatico exclusive for straight up or on the rocks.
I usually enjoy Zacapa XO, but this one is also pretty good stuff. Someday I preferr this bottle for a nice end of a good day!
This rum was a very pleasant surprise! It has gone down as one of my favorites. A very smooth rum with a great flavor profile that lingers. It is slightly sweeter than most rated this high, but it works with the flavor. Highly recommended!
Bis jetzt der beste rum den ich getrunken habe.
Kokosnuss und bannane, Schokolade und Vanille. Weich und komplex.
Schöne schwere Flasche macht was her.
Gifted a friend with this bottle and he was more than happy. Very balanced enjoyable flavor profile with absolutely no burn on the way down.
A hint of coconut at the start. And then its smooth sailing till the end. Doesn't get much better than this
Wonderful nose, can smell the cognac as well as a hint in the taste!!!
This is the best sipping rum I have had yet. A friend and I finished a bottle in one night. We couldn't put it down.
Om ja ska vara ärlig så gillar ja inte denna...
Very nice to drink straight up,Lot's of Coco's and vanilla flavours.
Very wel made: Smooth and tastefull
A nice sipping rum at $48 in NJ. I got hints of vanilla. Smooth but a bit less than Zacapa XO.
Comme tjs la marque plantation nous offre tout son savoir faire, le tout au top de la marque dans ce produit.un gout vanille au debut puis vite sur l orange.puis il se finit sur une tres longue fin de bouche sur la coco grillee legere.magnifique.....
Note 9.6 car je laisse une possibilite de mettre plus par la suite.A essayer absolument!!!!
The presentation, both for your eyes and nose is perfect. The alcohol is balanced and there is a nice complexity in both the taste and smell. I've only just started the bottle, but have tried and enjoyed it various ways (straight, mixed, w/ water, w/ice) via various tiny to large glasses. My preferred method of imbibe is from a stemless wine glass with a single ice cube.
Delicious rum. Strong in spirit. Good for any occasion.
PLANTATION 20 ANNIVERSARY....jällegi on minu baarikappi sattunud meeldiv jook mis kannab rummi nime auga välja. Kunagi hea sõbra Nuiamäega mekkisime esmalt seda pudelit ja järgi koge pitsi bacardid.... Palun ärge Teie küll seda kodus järgi proovige.... Hind 40 euro kanti
one of the best in the sweet line. half dry, not too much sugar. drink it handwarm and with time.
some typical barbados taste mixed with sweet tones an fruity elements. let this rum breathe.
This is the custom fit tuxedo with a generational rolex driving a maserati gran turismo. Full mouth flavor perfection. Not the most beautiful bottle but not second rate either. Elegant in its maturity. Exceptionally smooth edges with a long and wonderful finish.
lighter on the molasses, nice hint of coconut. only gave it a 9 because you cannot beat Clement XO.
One of my favorite sipping rums with flavors of cinnamon, vanilla, banana, and nuts all taking part in this delicacy.
A great rum, very soft and delicious. But maybe too sweet.
Incredible high end rum without the high end $
I prefer this with a small ice cube, allowing it chill for 5 minutes.
Your senses are greeted with vanilla a hint of banana, sugar cane and coconut. The flavor remains like an old friend with no burn.
