This little Caribbean Queen lies a little about her age … she shouldn’t, because those extra few months make all the difference.

Plantation Rum
 is owned by French Cognac producer Maison Ferrandwho 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. 

Plantation Rum Grand Reserve 5 Year is a bit of a misnomer. You see, this lovely Rum is definitely a blend of fine Barbados Rums that are indeed aged for five full years in ex-Bourbon casks. But this little Caribbean Queen is then moved Château de Bonbonnet Cognac casks for 3 to 6 months of finishing. 
 
Plantation Rums are famous for this magical extra step and it makes a REALLY big difference, especially in the complex aroma … scratch that, let’s call it perfume. So sure, Plantation Rum Grand Reserve 5 Year lies a little about her age. But she shouldn’t, because that extra character and flavor is what Rum aficionados are looking for.

Ryan
Ryan,
Smooth, inexpensive, I almost feel guilty for making dark and stormies with it... but only almost.
Behnam
Behnam,
I love this rum at this price point. Very flavorful & smooth right from the bottle. I took it to another level & put it in a charred oak barrel for 3 weeks & now it's a $50+ bottle of oaked rum. Amazing stuff!
Bethany
Bethany,
Very good for mixing, but still drinkable on it's own. Nice and smooth and great for the price.
Parker
Parker,
Never disappointed with Plantation; this is my go to. Can't beat the price either...

From what I've tried so far: Best value for money if you'd search a good mixing rum.
Hartmut
Hartmut,
Great tasting rum. Very smooth. Vanilla really stands out.
Don
Don,
For the price very worth it. Marked as a 7 just because of a small bite at the end and seems to be just a very satisfying rum. The flavor profiles didn't stand out quite as much I had hoped. I also get much more of a grape flavor followed by almost a doughy tail. Still very smooth overall and very worth it for the price.
PAUL
PAUL,
Very smooth and good flavors just dissapointed that I fund the same exact rum at local neighborhood liquor store for $12 cheaper.

Cheyne,
I'm splendidly surprised by this rum. I am a whisk(e)y drinker and I don't normally drink rum, but wow, this is a wonderful sipping and mixing rum. My brother loves a rum and Coke so we tried both neat and mixed and we both enjoyed it thoroughly each way. I will definitely be expanding my palate more to this world. As far as notes go, the rum was a nectar that smelled of apples, honey, molasses, berries, and maple, with a palate of surprisingly oaky tropical fruit and cane sugar, a long finish that reminded me of sipping a good blended Speyside scotch. Love this stuff.

A smooth and sweet rum with a nice maple tail.
