And out of the slightly higher priced vintages (£35ish) in this link:
what do you recommend as unmissable?
I never had the Gran Anejo. It's not available around here, but as any other Plantation products, I would buy it if it comes available.
Looking at the list from the Whiskey Exchange, here is my rankings:
I never had the T&T Overproof or Grenada 2003.
As for the more expensive issues, the Barbados 20th is very good, but does not justify the extra value. We don't get any of the single cask in North America, exception made of the Guadeloupe, which is truly fantastic. That one justifies the extra.
You have to consider that Plantation's offerings bear the same characteristics of rums from their native countries. If you don't like Appletons, you will not probably like Jamaica 2000. Guyana 1999 was an exception, I expected to find a taste similar to El Dorado's, but it was quite different IMOHO.
