“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.”

“Another surprising value for money Plantation. The Barbados notes (toffee, wood and a little fruity) are very clear here. A little sweeter due to added sugar, but for little money you really get a decent rum here.”

Aroma

Toffee Fruity Alcoholic

Sweet Caramel Honey
