Plantation Panama 2002

Nose: on ripe fruit, with a good dose of vanilla and butterscotch, with marzipan. Develops rapidly on nuts (walnuts, hazelnuts, nuts) and on citrus (orange, orange peel, tangerine).

Mouth still on citrus with caramel, vanilla and a healthy dose of sweet spices (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg). Becomes more woody, with a smoke point, and a peppery edge. Long. Grows with more fat as you go.

Final: Return of caramel, oak and sweet spices.
90/100

Nose: Very discreet. Melon, pear and vanilla. A touch of ether gives it a little medicinal air.

Palate: The attack is very light, with ripe banana and a hint of oak. Later develops floral aromas and a delicate fruity (pear, apricot). It's very pleasant!

Finish: long and light, in line with the palate's end, on the flowers and white fruit.

Comment: Very subtle and unaggressive.

87/100

To the eye, this rum has light golden color and seems very liquid.

At the nose, it has distinct notes of caramel, chocolate, candied fruit and vanilla and light oak.

The palate is fresh and has a sweet taste. One can clearly see the notes of caramel and chocolate, but also licorice.
There is a good length and you can enjoy it for long minutes.
86/100

Colour: Mahogany.
Nose: woody, vanilla and cherry.
Mouth with dominant woody vanilla and cherry, like at the nose.
Final: finely wooded, the leather, éger caramel.

Nice rum, probably traditional type, alcohol finely adjusted.
86/100

Amber and gold, nearly orange on reflections, the whole seems oily.

The nose is buttered, with the particularity of cleared at the beginning of a kind of nail glue smell. Oak is present, spices also, and the lighter flavors include vanilla and almond. Ripe fruit (citrus + / lemon).

The palate is soft and creamy on the spices and wood (oak / ginger and cinnamon), orange zest and still ripe fruity although roasted and caramelized sugar.

Final sweet as the mouth, slightly raised but still fruity.

(Remark: the original note given by this taster is 75. This is his first participation and he probably uses another scale than the standard one in the WDTS. To guarantee the coherence of the results, this quotation has been changed by the administrator)

82/100

appearance:yellow gold
nose:low intensity, well integrated alcohol, caramel, vanilla, bag of Haribo sweets freshly opened, profile 7/8 sweet, 1/8 spicy
taste:medium intensity, well integrated alcohol, caramelized milk with double vanilla, pleasant but monolithic and full of sweetness
finish:short

81/100

Colour: gold.
Nose: notes of vanilla, tobacco and gula djawa, together with some oak en green herbs. Later on some coconut and ginger. Nice and compact.
Taste: fresh entrance with some herbal notes. Then returning vanilla with brown caster sugar and some ginger and cinnamon. The finish is rather short, but the whole is quite tasty.

80/100

Color: Old Gold
The nose is very (too) quiet and mostly marked by notes of coconut and very light hints of solvent. It is likely that if this rum was less diluted, it would have been much more expressive.
The first impression is very sweet, with hints of coconut exaggerated. Little complexity and a slightly sickening side.
The finish is short and marked by sugar and coconut.
80/100

Colour: Deep copper.
Nose: Oh! Are you kidding me? Is that rum? The very same profile than a rather fair though slightly disappointing old grain. Make it a 1973 Strathclyde. Slightly sticky, with lots of vanilla, cotton candy galor, Malibu, and this typical hint of nail polish remover.
Mouth: Much weaker and sweeter than the above-mentionned Strathclyde now. 40% or 43%, no more, which is not enough to balance the sugary side of the spirit. The single grain character remains, but seems to be highly diluted, revealing some cheap fudge. Too bad.
Finish: Short and flat.
Comment: An interesting nose for you single grain lovers. Unfortunately, the overdiluted mouth doesn't last the distance.
