It would be nearly impossible to speak of the history of Barbados without mentioning rum. Many historians argue rum originated as a by product of sugar refining on the tiny island. The profitable refining industry, in turn, spawned magnificent plantations. Consequently rum became a much sought after trading commodity between Barbados, the American colonies and Europe. Supposedly George Washington demanded a hogshead of Barbados Rum, 64 gallons, to be served at his inauguration. Only the highest quality Barbados Rum is applied to a base of Burley, Virginia, and Black Cavendish.
Love this as much as the Molto Dolce. Not as sweet as MD. But same rich smoke, easy burn maintenance. Silky smooth across the tongue, no bite. A real pleasure sitting on the front porch in the Endless Mountains Pa. Aaaahhhh!
This is hands down one of the tastiest blends I've ever had. I happen this like rum so I'm probably a little biased there however. The taste is a combination of rum qkr vanilla and that translates to Tue room note as well. A word of caution tho, this... Read More one will bite if rushed so take your time! Read Less
This blend is certainly better than most aromatics out there. There is really good flavor there but sometimes it comes and goes. Also one bowl will have great taste another will be weak.

I was a dedicated smoker of a 50/50 mixture of Molto Dolce and Maple Street. Barbados Plantation was recommended to me by a fellow smoker. I tried it straight and mixed with Molto Dolce. These are heavenly tobaccos for aromatic smokers. Maple Street ... Read Moredrops to #3. Molto Dolce to #2. Read Less
For me, this is a decent aromatic. There must be a big difference in moisture between what's being sold - some people have said theirs was very dry in the tin, but mine was very moist and needed drying. In general, I'm not a big fan of Sutliff arom... Read Moreatics - they usually tend toward the goopy side, have a chemical taste and can easily bite, but this is a decent one. No bite if I smoke at a reasonable pace, and good flavor - mostly Burley with a touch of Rum to my taste buds. If you like aromatics, give this one a try (and maybe even if you just like Burleys).

Definitely a very sweet aromatic.
Tin note is enchanting. Tobacco is very moist, I've had it setting out uncovered for 48 hours thus far and hasn't seemed to want to dry any.
As is, it is smoking dry though. Richness of flavor and a nice heavy smoke... Read More, the rum flavor takes front and center and remains there. Room note matches the tin note - very pleasing, almost delectable. Burns surprisingly cool for a blend that obviously has a lot of top dressing. No bite, with a nice clean aftertaste that lingers pleasantly. Silvery grey ash, burns right down to the bottom. Doesn't seem to over-heat, even when pushed a bit. Slower smoking definitely brings out more flavor though. True for most all blends - very true with this one. Not a lot of tobacco flavor coming through, but enough to keep my attention.
I'm not a big smoker of aromatics, but, I'll probably keep this one around for those times I want something sweet.
Thus far, every Sutliff I have tried has been pleasing, some extremely pleasing. This one falls into the extremely pleasing, for an aromatic category. For the price and quality, it's a 5 star aromatic. Read Less
I ordered this only because I sell and enjoy Mount Gay Rum which is THE Premium Rum from Barbados. I had to try this blend whether it actually had Mount Gay used in it or was just part of "the story". Doesn't matter. This is really delci... Read Moreous stuff. Great vanilla and enticing caramel notes from the tin, and a heavenly "I can't wait to have another bowl of this" taste while smoking. No tongue bite. This jumped up into the top of my rotation. Quite a find for something I ordered as a goof, I ordered 4 more tins and few other types to try as well. Very good price on the Sutliff Private Stocks.
