Who knew that great literature could be this tasty?

Plantation Rum is owned by French Cognac producer Maison Ferrand, who control no less than a dozen major brands premium spirits and liqueurs. Sometimes that is an iffy proposition, but not in this case because the folks at Ferrand are all about quality … and you can taste it. Plantation Rum is their top shelf Rum label. And mighty good stuff it is, too. They offer a variety of Rums from the Caribbean. Depending on the plantation and the country of origin, the Rums can vary between soft and aromatic to light and elegant … each one showing the gentle, experienced influence of Maison Ferrand.

“The Pickwick Papers” was the first novel written by the famous author Charles Dickens. One of the minor characters in that book — a Reverend Stiggins — complimented and enjoyed “pineapple Rum.” Plantation Rum set out to recreate this eighteenth-century literary delicacy. To make their Plantation Stiggins' Fancy Dark Pineapple Rum they take their signature Plantation Dark Rum and infuse fresh, hand cut Victoria pineapple fruit for three months. Simultaneously, they infuse the cut pineapple rinds for three months in Plantation 3-star Rum. Those two infusions are then married in casks. The result is an award-winning specialty “cocktail in a bottle.”

David
David,
Fell in love with this rum. Good taste and was very smooth.
Carl
Carl,
This wasn't as sweet or flavorful like the reviews mentioned. It's quite strong, very lite pineapple taste, I was disappointed because of that. I was hoping for more pronounced pineapple and tropical flavors.
Angela
Angela,
Love this; drink it with a cube it's perfect
Wayne
Wayne,
Nice initial taste and smell. A tad barkish but not overwhelming. The subtle Pineapple adds a nice twist. Definite must have in a collection.
Joshua
Joshua,
Great Rum, strong pineapple flavor with minor notes of vanilla. Great over ice, or in a PiƱa Colada.
Michael
Michael,
I didn't particularly like this one. You can absolutely taste the pineapple, but it didn't mesh well with the flavors of the rum. I even tried mixing it with coke, and what I got was pineapple flavored coke. Which just isn't a thing, for me.
Parker
Parker,
Amazing Rum; straight or dressed up
Lou
Lou,
Really unique flavor with the pineapple. Very fruity, almost a butterscotch taste to it. Smooth and I recommend using as an after dinner "dessert" to sip on the rocks, nothing else.
Justin
Justin,
It wasn't too sweet like some of its liqueur counterparts. I mixed it with pure coconut water on the rocks and that was all that was necessary for the perfect Florida porch cocktail.
Tom
Tom,
too sweet for me when i tried drinking it straight, very good on the rocks
Jason
Jason,
Mixed with coke the pineapples sweetness really comes out. Not overly sweet just enough
Andrew
Andrew,
Nice sipping run with fruity overtones.
Peter
Peter,
Very flavorful rum. Crisp, a tantalizing hint f the pineapple as well as a clean rum taste. Not over powering. Worked well with cocnut milkand ice for a simple cocktail. Worked better still with a single cube of ice and nothing else. Wonderful sipping rum. I will be purchasing this one again.
Max
Max,
Pretty sweet flavor, but not over the top
Barry

Christopher
Christopher,
Not bad, but there are other rums at its price point (Diplomatico, K & S 18 Year Old, El Dorado) that I rate as higher. Didn't get a hint of pineapple.
Charles
Charles,
The taste was very pleasant to the palette.
Brandon
Brandon,
Great taste, still has a little more sting than I like and isn't super smooth but over all a good rum.
Mike
Mike,
Great rum! Just the right aroma & taste of pineapple. Excellent by itself or used in a cocktail.
alex
alex,
Taste Great!
Gregory
Gregory,
Delicious by itself or in an old fashion. The pineapple is truly infused and tastes real, not some fake flavouring.
Matthew
Matthew,
A really pleasant but vibrant pineapple aroma with a deep muscovado sugar flavor.
