I just returned from a luxury tasting I was invited to and I'm actually a bit tipsy this time because all the rums had a high proof. This tasting was Plantation extreme only and this is the fourth one of the six. This is a very nice estery Jamaican rum where the finish lasts for a very, very long time. Very well balanced between proof, spice and tropical fruits. The price is a bit high but still OK I think.

Komplexe Noten aus etwas Holz, etwas pflanzlich dann wieder tropisch fruchtig (u.a. Mango) wechseln sich im Mund ab. Ein wirklich rundum gelungener Rum von der Nase, über die Zunge bis an den Gaumen.

For me the winner out of the 1996 Plantation Extreme bottlings. Most intense flavor profile out of the three while still very elegant overall.

Dégusté à l'aveugle d'abord. J'ai été déconcerté par le nez qui me semblait trop caramélisé pour être un Jamaicain. J'avais du fruit très mûr, du bois. Mais aussi de la vanille et du caramel très présents. En bouche, idem, surpris par la sucrosité et le fruité. L'attaque est épicée mais l'alcool disparaît assez vite au profit d'un fruit très mûr. C'est très agréable. Sucré, parfumé, enrobant, piquant. Superbe. J'ai pensé à un Savanna. Mais je n'aurais pas misé sur un Jamaicain. Une fois que j'ai su, évidemment, je retrouve les marqueurs et je me dis que j'étais à l'ouest... Au final, c'est TRES bon.

Etwas zu viel Würzigkeit für meinen Geschmack, die Fruchtnoten gehen am Gaumen ziemlich unter. Gibt deutlich bessere Long Ponds.

Trop sec.. Mise en bouche franche

Rhum gourmand et fruité. Subtilement épicé, un très bel équilibre. Belle longueur finale poivré mais douce en même temps.

Cask's influence is bigger here than in the ITP. If you're undecided between the 2, mix them, you're in for a treat!
