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.
This is a slightly flavored rum, as it has hints of coconut and vanilla. But the main flavor is the aged rum, and the hints of added flavor complement the aged rum perfectly, without overpowering it. It tastes wonderful. A good rum value; at only $64.99 from BevMo! (2015), it's better than a great number of more expensive rums I've tried. One of the best rums I've had, period!
Choklad, vanilj, cocos, ek, kort sagt mycket gott i den här.
Flaskan i sej är riktigt elegant ochså
This is ma favourite rum. Very soft with taste of vanilla, maybe chocolate. And aroma is sweet.
This rum lingers on your palate leaving hints of vanilla and caramel. The wood of the cask boosts the flavor. Great rum.
On est sur un rhum très typé du fait d'une forte présence de notes de coco. Au nez c'est divin, l'alcool ne se fait pas du tout sentir et on est sur de belles notes caramélisés de banane, de café et évidemment de coco. En bouche c'est très très gourmand, suave, un poil trop sucré à mon goût. Il me laisse aussi une petite note astringente à l'arrière de la langue, pas vraiment agréable mais qui n'enlève en rien la qualité de ce rhum. Je n'en prends qu'un verre en digestif car il peut vite saturer le palet mais c'est un vrai plaisir.
Wow, coconut and vanilla smell just got me. It smells so sweet and fancy, you dont know you are smelling rum. The taste on the opposite is well balanced, not that sweet, yet very complexed. Like it sooo much.
Fantastic rum for a great price. Smooth and great aromatics
Really good rum with a lot of flavor. The taste of coconut shines through. I would buy it again when empty though.
Bought this one based on the reviews on this site, have to say it is really really good. It has a complex flavor profile without being too much in any area. Very smooth sipper with a rewarding aftertaste.
It seems commercial impression of rum is sweet and smooth or spiced. That usually mean's added flavours and sugar.
It's drinkable and could be said it's good, but it's less rum.
I've got the old bottle, not this new shape one, but I bet it's likely the same.
To me there are two groups of rum fan's, one for sweets and another for pure rums. And those are not comparable in any ways.
It's a very sweety rhum. very nice without agressivity. But this rhum is a little to coco flavour for me.
De un color pardo y aroma dulce, este ron puede tomarse en las rocas sin problemas, sin peligro que su sabor sea demasiado invasivo
VERY VERY ENJOYABLE. Not to sweet no burn just great tasting.
Love this rum. As well as the vanilla, I get a huge hit of coconut on the nose and the first taste. Smooth and sweet, bright and fruity. While flavourful, it isn't heavy or thick. Also, at $40, it's one of the best value bottles.
Det er nok en af de bedste rom jeg har i min samling, ikke for sød og en dejlig eftersmag.
Lige som jeg kan lide den.
I never tasted a rum from Barbados before, and many positive ratings everywhere made me curious and my expectations been also very high. Well,i wasn't disappointed,its even better as i ever thought. In the nose : like a casket full of fresh tropical fruits,mango,banana. In the mouth it literally explodes,the tiny bite is overwhelmed with the complex fruity flavours. Tasty and a must have
Truly a gem of rums!
Affordable, smooth and sweet.
fles: 70cl en prachtig uitgevoerd.
aroma, karamel, tropisch fruit en hout.
smaak: caramel, mango, kokos en vanille.
nasmaak: lang, eerst zoetig dan droog.
Uitstekende rum. Een echte aanrander.
24/29 gr/liter suiker toegevoegd. 2 punten er af met zo'n prijs.
The bottle comes in a nice box and the bittle itself is really nice.
This rum smells fantastic, your be greeted with carmel and coconut reminding me of a Caribbean holiday.
This is a sipping rum and you will have to remind yourself that your drinking rum instead of cognac.
This is a fantastic rum and I would not turn down a glass mixing this would be a crime. Just add ice if you need to pair it with anything.
One of my favourites.
Great touch of coconut in aftertaste and perfect smoothness,not so sweet not so dry. Recommending to have it.
Denne Rom bør smages. Lidt frugtsmag, dejlig eftersmag og god duft. Bør være i din Rom samling.
Medium dry to slightly sweet, smooth with good flavor.
Velmi dobrý rum. Měl jsem kromě ročníkových Plantation Grande Réserve i Plantation Guatemala Gran Anejo - oba byly dobré, ale tento je překonal.
Bottle : This bottle is also beautiful. It has a exclusive look, easy to access with it´s big cap and nice weight to it.
Nose : The scent if full of vanilla and sugar.
Taste : Big full and rich taste of what i believe is a nice rum, rich with raisins and vanilla.
Finish : Strong finish which slowly evolves in separate tones.
This rum is a great medium priced Plantation rum.
It has a good full taste and is sweet enough for my sweet taste.
It is a good place for you to start if you are new to Plantation, as I was this spring.
I have since bought a more expensive Plantation single cask rum - and I am sure I will buy more bottles from this fine brand soon.
Great looking bottle if you can live with the plastic'ish top - I can.
