This is another in my collection and I would say it is the next closest behind Plantation. Very sippable and excellent flavor.



Give it a shot and tell me what you think.

Ah, no. Haven't made it up to the super store in a few weeks. No way any local packy is going to carry that.

You will enjoy that Ron Zacapa very much! Tasty and smooth stuff.

I'm having some 15yr El Dorado with a splash of pineapple and Tripple Sec.

The Zacapa is indeed smooth. Not quite the sweet finish of the Plantation 20, and that's a small minus in my book. Especially since the Zacapa is a good bit pricier. Still, an enjoyable rum. And since it hit 70F here today, it doesn't even feel out of season.

Drinking some over ice right now. Not bad. I'm a whiskey and bourbon guy but not bad, just little sweet.

I picked up some Plantation 20yr based on your impression TXSTYLE, it's fantastic neat and with a single cube.

Previously I had been focused on single malts and bourbon, Four Roses being my recent bottle, previously I had been drinking Lagavulin (bit too peety honestly) and Glenmorangie.

I see myself trying some more rums in the near future, should I try El Dorado next?

Glad to hear that my friend.

El Dorado is worth a try no doubt. Not as pricey as Plantation but smooth and tasty.

Keep an eye out for: Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva

Probably my favorite Rum under $40.

I'm telling you guys... I was once a Bourbon and Whiskey guy. I then was a Scotch guy. And then Cognac (still very fond and keep several bottles on hand). But when I was introduced to ultra premium Rums by a liquor store manager years ago, (who himself was a avid Scotch drinker) I never looked back and try as many as I can find.
The flavors profile and smoothness are second to none!
But then again, I love vanilla, honey, nuts, caramel all of which are present in all of these Rums. With one of my Gurkhas... Bliss.

I am now on a hunt to locate this:



I must know if it is the same as my beloved Plantation XO 20, in a different packaging or is it a different rum altogether?
Having my local store verify tomorrow. Stay tuned...

I haven't heard back from my store. But I suspect it is the same as my favorite Plantation XO, just re packaged. For $50, I'd grab it! I doubt you will be disappointed.
The reviews for this are pretty much outstanding!
