Plantation Extra Old Barbados Rum / 20th Anniversary
70cl / 40%
A very handsomely presented decanter-style bottle of Plantation Extra Old rum from Barbados. Unusually, the rums are initially aged in the Caribbean in ex-bourbon casks, before being trasported to Charente (home of the bottlers, cognac producer C. Ferrand) and undergoing a second maturation in small French oak casks. 94 points from the Beverage Tasting Institue in Chicago.

This was my first premium rum purchase as I wanted to branch out from whisky. Absolutely stunned by it on first sip. So smooth, beguiling flavour, amazing mouth-feel. I have tried a lot of whiskies and I will be trying a lot of rums after this. Banana, date, vanilla, gentle oak, but more than the sum of its flavours.

A lovely supping rum. Had a couple of glasses in a restaurant a few weeks ago. Ordered a bottle the next day. I agree with a previous review that it slightly edges the Ron Zacapa.

Absolutely superb. Pound for pound my sipping friends and I rate this as highly, if not better, than the Zacapa XO - at half the price. My be a slight bias as I generally favour Bajan aged amber rums, but definitely worth a try if you like similar.

My father and I tried this at a restaurant recently and both loved it so much I couldn't resist ordering a couple of bottles. Rich flavours of vanilla, coconut and tropical fruit. A truly outstanding rum and well worth every penny.

I have found a bridge between Rhum & Cognac with this exceptional beverage. The best sipping rhum for the money.

Fab! We had this instead of a dessert wine last night at NOPI and wow, what an amazing drink. As above vanilla etc but more pistachio mint ice-cream, honey and caramel. Fabulous, complex and well worth it.
