If billionaire Richard Branson were a real pirate, he would be drinking Plantation Barbados XO. 
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
We can’t help it… to a large extent, we shop with our eyes. But sometimes spirits—and people, for that matter—are all packaging and no substance. Plantation Barbados XO is NOT one of those. The bottle is thick, tapered glass sporting a stunning label and wood stopper with a gold cap, complemented by a net-like wrap of raffia. And the color of the Rum is a deep, warm, cherry-wood hue that screams quality. The total effect is something like “if billionaire Richard Branson were a real pirate, this is what he would be drinking” kind of thing. 
But what does it taste like? In a word, “great.” And equally important, like all fine aged Rums, it has a perfumey aroma that—pardon the expression—is like sex in the nose. It is double distilled… once in a pot still and again in a column still. It is double aged, first in the Caribbean using ex-Bourbon barrels for as much as 20 years. Then it is shipped to France for 12-18 months of additional “cool-weather” aging in smaller, French oak casks. Magic. Plantation Barbados XO is a rare beauty on the outside and on the inside.

Ratings & Reviews
This is by far my favorite rum to drink without a mixer. If you haven't tried it you are seriously missing out on something special.
I am a lover of dark liquor, but rum has a special place on my palate. I must say the Plantation XO is the best I ever had.
Great rum. Love the warmth and smoothness. Great creamy vanilla taste.
Epic !
This may be my favorite of all rums!
This was much better than I imagined. Smooth to the taste and refreshing
Spectacular both the bottle and the rum inside. Rich and creamy with sweet notes. One of my favorite all time
This is an exceptional rum, in my opinion, it starts out and stays smooth throughout the drinking experience. It stands out among other rums I have tried, it is comparable to the only other rum I find exceptional "El Dorado 21 yr". I will continue to purchase this and encourage others to purchase this fine rum as well.
The aroma of the this drink is so intoxicating. Sip slow but I like it with no ice.
Such a good sipper over a few big cubes of ice. The coconut and caramel are just enough to avoid being unctuous. Everything else balances the note.
Very smooth and delicious
Excellent. One of the few rums I can drink over ice.
This is a smooth and delicious rum. I could drink this all day.
Not usually a fan of rum, but needed some for a bath of mamajuana I am making. Haven't tried mamajuana yet, but the rum itself is delicious.
Very smooth, hint of smoke. Very nice
Everyone's darling
Simply smooth, this is a sipping rum, not a mixer. Sweet molasses and sugar are dancing around with flavours of apple and vanilla.
This is simply amazing Rum!!! Delicious and smooth! Will be getting another bottle......or 10!
Great Big "O" to the mouth.
I truthfully don't like rum and this was incredible!!
