Plantation XO Barbados Bottling Note

A superb-looking decanter bottle of XO rum from Barbados, aged in bourbon barrels before being shipped to France for a secondary maturation in Cognac casks from the Ferrand house. The result is a well balanced rum with a remarkably long finish, with a palate of chocolate, banana, coconut and mango. Now this is some very good stuff.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Hints of spicy oak on the nose, with guava, a little desiccated coconut and dried banana. Buttery.

Palate: Spiced, creamy palate entry, with sweet vanilla notes and caramel. Oaky spices.

Finish: Caramel. Toasted oak.

Plantation XO Barbados 20th Anniversary Reviews

Disappointed

I read good review after good review for this rum and I have to say it doesn't live up to my hIgh expectations.
It’s a very fruity rum on the nose and on the taste with an over riding taste of coconut, almost as if in the blend one of the rums was actually a coconut rum like Malibou or the likes. Now don't get me wrong, I like a smooth rum but it’s so smooth there’s almost no burn at all until the very finish, where the burn is not worth mentioning… a bit like Bumbu Rum in that way… it’s almost like drinking a non alcoholic rum. The marketing talks of the 20 years anniversary of blending for their highly acclaimed master blender Alexander Gabriel hence the name of the bottle ‘Plantation XO 20 year anniversary’ but I personally don't see this as the best works as a result of 20 years + blending, I simply don’t, there’s no argument it’s a beautifully smooth fruity, coconut style rum…… would I buy another bottle? Definitely not! Would I be happy if somebody bought it me as a gift? I’d be quietly disappointed… there are so many more rums out there priced around £52 that are much better.

An easy sipper

On the nose it's very bready and buttery, there's a pastry like aroma, alongside bananas and maple syrup. Very sweet, tropical fruitiness along with a yeasty, bready sensation. Very nice indeed.
Very rich and smooth in the mouth, almost creamy. There's a little spicy tingle on the tongue with a deep vanilla sweetness. A cinnamon topped creme brulee springs to mind.
The finish is medium in length, the vanilla turning to a fudgy toffee and then the banana comes back.
A superb sipping rum, easy on the palate and would also be delicious poured over vanilla ice cream.

Expertly made sensational rum!

This is wonderful. As rums go it is not over sweet as some reviewers have claimed. The flavour is intense dark chocolate, marzipan, black treacle. My favourite rum to date.

Maple old fashioned!

Beautiful. Using it in an old fashioned with maple syrup (15/20ml) is incredible

Amazing

My favourite rum so far.

This rum is smooth and easy to sip on, I find adding ice dilutes the flavour so perhaps best at room temp or with a few drops of water.

Very tasty and easy to drink rum and worth the money in my opinion

Tastes as if its been watered down

Two recent rums I've recently been enjoying are the diplomatico reserva exclusiva and the companero extra anejo.. I bought this rum to try something a little different ignoring a few bad reviews but it's fair to say I'm quite disappointed, feels like it's been watered down.. Definitely not a premium rum. £30 I'd be happy.

Smooth ,sweet and easy to drink

Underwhelmed

Nice rum but nothing special considering the price. Are you paying for a fancy bottle? El Dorado 15 and Doorly's 12 are two examples in this price range which offer so much more.
