“Exquisite balance, full-bodied with distinct Christmas notes, perfect for winter evenings.”

The Plantation Guyana Rum, distilled in a Pot Still and aged for 17 years, is a gem from the Diamond Distillery.

“An absolute favorite rum! From the taste profile it reminds very much of the El Dorado 15 Years. Only denser, more complex. Unfortunately, also a lot of sugar, that's the flaw.Distilled on the Port Mourant column, 15 years equatorial glow and 2 years in a cognac barrel.The perfect rum for a cold winter evening! Still it is cold outside...”

“Had a great Plantation tasting experience yesterday and here is the fifth of the six we had a go at.This was a nice surprise because the usual hardness in the taste from Guyana is actually missing here. A very nicely balanced rum that is kind of soft. This rum has been created from molasses that has undergone extra long fermentation and maybe that's what makes it almost perfect. A hard bottle to get your hands on so if you get a chance, give it a sip.”

“Basically nice profile - the nose is still dominated by the classic Demerara notes. Unfortunately, everything is somewhat marred on the palate by the subsequent sweetening (suspected from the flavor profile), as the sugary notes become too dominant.”
