Plantation Rum’s Tasting Notes

Posted: June 13, 2015 in Rum, Trinidad

Plantation ‘Original Dark’ Trinidad & Tobago Rum 40%

Tasted: Aug 2008

Amazing quality, entry level Rum from the Plantation series. It has a pungent, oily nose, redolent of dried fruits along with a touch of banana and wood spices. Quiet fragrant with a lovely soft crumbly spice note.

The palate displays the wealth of dried fruit flavour that the nose hints at. It’s robust yet surprisingly full of finesse with loads of wood notes and oily congeners. Excellent length with a spicy finish.

Plantation Trinidad 1996 (?age) 45%

Tasted: Sept 2007

A Lovely, rich, waxy nose of coconut, dried fruit, menthol, mint leaves and a citrus note.

Rich on the palate but surprisingly delicate with a lovely balance of coconut, dried fruit and menthol. It really is quiet sinus clearing with its minty finish. Very long with a touch of dried spice and salt.
