I loved the butterscotch finnish. I have recently discovered a Rum named Kaniche XO at a Rum tasting event. It is very every bit as smooth as Plantation and very affordable. Is there a reason why these rums are not on the favorites pick list?
Kaniche and the Plantation are one and the same. As Cignac/Ferrand products they are widely bashed much like Bacardi.

Marks and Spencer stock a Bajan and Guatemalan rum both of which are Plantation rum's re-bottled. Decent buys at £25 or less
