Plantation Original Dark Rum
Dark Rum /40% ABV / Barbados
- Dark Rum
The rich and intense style of Jamaica and Barbados, with their notes of plum, banana and vanilla, is enhanced by meticulous blending and further maturation in Cognac, France. The result is a bold structure, spiced with notes of cinnamon and clove, and generous aromas of smoke and tropical fruit. An ideal companion for 'dark rum' cocktails, Plantation Original Dark is as equally at home with ice and ginger beer as it is in elaborate tiki classics like the Jungle Bird.View all products by PlantationCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

I have not tried this before

Not as dark a dark rum as say Goslings or Myers, but a very smooth flavor. Just enough molasses flavor to add the contrasting note.

I love a good Scotch, Whiskey and Bourbons. I haven’t been a rum drinker (except for a Mojito) and maybe Capt Morgan at a limited bar at a wedding. I needed a good dark flavor layered rum for a recipe, was on DRZY and this rum was an option. Do yourself a favor and BUY this! I opened it, poured a neat pour and let it open... warm it in your hand like a great brandy and prepare yourself for more rich Smokey flavors than you would believe! The rum is barrel aged in charred barrels, then hand selected by the Master Distiller and then SHIPPED to France to finish aging. It’s a rum. It’s not a scotch obviously. But if you have ever tried Balvenie 14 Caribbean Cask Aged, you will be reminded of some familiar notes. Cheers & happy drinking! Toni- Minneapolis

This rum is amazing. Lots of vanilla, some fruit, and warm spices like clove and cinnamon. Very smooth as well. No harsh bite like similarly priced rums I’ve tried. So far I’ve used it for tropical cocktails, sipping on the rocks, and straight up as a desert rum. Delicious in all three capacities. Super glad I took a risk on this bottle - it’s going to be my new go to. If you’re looking for a full, flavorful rum to round out your home bar, or a way to take your tiki drinks to the next level, your search is over.

Rihanna is from Barbados and so is this rum. I enjoy this rum on the rocks with coke

It's not as good as the 5 year Barbados, and it's doesn't have the sheer strength of the OFTD, but it's better in tropical drinks than e.g. Coruba.
