Default Review: Plantation Panama 2000 (Old Reserve) Rum

The Plantation Panama 2000 (Old Reserve) Rum is column distilled rum which has been aged for nine years in selected bourbon casks. The aged rum was transported from Nicaragua to France, and then it was additionally aged for a short time in used Cognac casks to enhance or ‘finish’ the rum before it was bottled:

Review Plantation Panama 2000 (Old Reserve) Rum

Note: I believe this is essentially the same rum as the Plantation Panama 1997 (except for the bottling strength of 42 % abv for the 2000, versus 43 % abv for the 1997).

It's getting tougher and tougher to keep up with all the new rum products. This thread reminded me that I had a taste of the "new" Plantation Original Dark at the bar (PKNY) last week. It's from Trinidad and Tobago and will be available in both 40% and 73%.

I had the overproof and it was tasty. I can just imagine how much fun this is going to be - making Tiki drinks...

Anyone know when it's going to hit the stores?

Funny you should mention the Plantation Original Dark Overproof and having a hard time keeping up in the same thread comment. I just received samples of the Original Dark (73 % abv), and the Plantation Guatemala and the Plantation 20th Anniversary two days ago. I had thought I was almost caught up on my reviews of the Plantation Line-up but it just keeps growing.

As much as I love the Plantation Rums, the sample bottle of Cognac Ferrand's Citadelle Reserve Gin has me even more excited. It will be the first oaked gin I have ever tasted and i cannot wait to open the bottle.

BTW: I am glad to hear that you liked the Overproof Dark, I plan to taste it head to head with the Lemonhart 151 I reviewed about a month ago. Should be great fun.

I've tried the Ransom and Bols Genever barrel aged. They are smashing! I am intrigued by the Citadelle as well. Gin is my second favorite spirit.

Looking forward to your LH 151/Plantation Original Dark shoot out!

Intriguing review Chip. I'm a BIG fan of the 20th Anniversary and the Grand Reserve,... so this is an obvious "MUST TRY". I'm just hoping a delivery to Hi-Times Wine is immanent. Give us an E.T.A. Forrest!

Default Plantation Jamaica 2000

I had the opportunity to meet Guillaume Lamy, the Vice President – North America, for Cognac Ferrand in Miami last year where I was treated to a tasting of the Plantation line-up at a breakfast sponsored by Plantation Rum. I am not sure, but at that breakfast, I received the impression that the Plantation Jamaica Rum was one of Guillaume’s most favourite rums in the Plantation family. He spoke with particular passion about this rum and how, in his mind, it carried a certain extra appeal or ‘funkiness’ in the glass.
