Plantation Rum 20th Anniversary XO Rum (700ml)
Tasting note: Bright mahogany in colour. Restrained nose nevertheless entices with vanilla slice, creme caramel, dried coconut and choc-fudge notes - the prelude to a dessert lover’s dream. The theme continues on the palate. Extraordinarily rich and luxuriously textured, flavours of praline, creme caramel, barley sugar and coconut melt in the mouth. Silky mouth feel. Long aftertaste of confectionary and dried coconut. For all its sweetness - and this is very sweet and coconutty - this rum manages to maintain sufficient freshness. 40% Alc./Vol.
Other reviews... Rich copper color. Bold aromas of coconut creme pie and creme brulee follow through on a rich entry to a fruity medium-full body with layers of dried tropical fruits and sweet baking spices. Finishes with a spicy praline, cherry, and toasted coconut fade with spicy cedar and leather underneath. A mildly sweet, very flavorful and appealing aged rum for sipping or fruity cocktails, especially piña coladas. 94 points - tastings.com
