Plantation Xaymaca Special Dry Rum70cl / 43%
Plantation's take on traditional Jamaican rum, packed with funky fruitiness. It's a blend of rums from two distilleries on the island, distilled on the John Dore pot-still at Long Pond and Clarendon's Vendome-made pot, balancing the character of each. The palate offers notes of banana, apricot, pineapple, cashews and ginger, as well as hints of sweet coconut.
Plantation Xaymaca Special Dry Rum Reviews
Nose: Very complex, slightly smoky and meaty with fruity, herbal and sour notes building up. Next vanilla come forward, almost pastry-like, with cooked banana, bitter orange peel and ripe pineapple.
Palate: Dry, with a more floral and fruitier profile of rose water, soursop, pear, white grape, apricot and sugar-apple. Next some coconut milk, balsam, allspices, bread and nuts emerge.

I'm not entirely sure why, but the nose on this brings be back to my childhood summers, to the poolside, the park, to days with my friends. Its a very nostalgic smell, yet very complex.
Really good and very easy to drink. Good value for money.
