Another surprising value for money Plantation. The Barbados notes (toffee and fruity) are very clear here. A little sweeter due to added sugar, but for the money you can't go wrong.

This is a young blended rum from Barbados that does pretty OK actually. Not as sweet as many of the other Plantation rums but still sweet enough that you get it on the nose. It's a light easy to drink rum that you can sip or use in a cocktail. It does lack complexity but you can't expect that from 5 years of aging. Price to quality is good.

All my Tastings and Scores are purely based on “Rums under £50”. I rarely look at Rums over £50 for my YouTube.

Young, fresh with some fruits and even it's young it not taste as young. Plantation rums are specific, fruity, floral, light and most of them for a cheap price. This one is cheap and it's bargain. I would recommend it for everyone as fruity reference rum, enjoyable in both worlds - sipping or as a mixer.

Got it as a present from a couple of students at the end of their internship. Neat it’s too sweet for my taste, but it’s a nice starter for when there’s company. Also usable as a mixer.

Revisiting. It’s clearly sweet and dosed, can see how it’s popular but a little one dimensional. Dosage helps with smoothness and it’s not bad although almost too sweet with Coke. Struggle to think of its place as to me it’s not really a sipping or mixing rum
