Customer Rating

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 transported to the Charente (home of the bottlers, Cognac producer Ferrand) and undergoing a second maturation in small French oak casks. 94 points from the Beverage Testing Institute in Chicago.

    Exceptional, just as good as the XO champagne cognac which was nearly twice the price

    I have never left an online review for any product, as I am a bit of a Luddite, but this plantation rum really is the best I have tried. I agree with the other reviewers, concerning taste . Drink neat only to appreciate the flavour. Enjoy

    I was given this rum as a gift and it is without a doubt one of the best plain style rums I have tried. Its smooth in the palate and the aromas of light coconut, vanilla and subtle toffee and banana are delicious. Its a rum which shouldn''t be spoilt with mixers, neat or with ice.

    Amazing! Superbly smooth and easy to drink, can have it plain or with ice (too good for a mixer) its hard to stop at just one!

    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.
