A fruity, earthy single vintage rum from Jamaica, bottled by Plantation.
With molasses as the base, this was distilled in 2002 through a pot still and then aged for ten years in an ex-bourbon cask in Jamaica. It then was transferred to France and spent three years in an ex-Pierre Ferrand cognac cask.
Official tasting notes:
Nose: Intense and complex, greets with fresh fruit and earthy notes enhanced by a woody luster. Raison notes surface from the gentle distillation.
Palate: Significant and powerful, playing with pastry and fruit notes of peach, banana, prune and walnut. Cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper, clove and vanilla contrast the dance of flavours.
In 1989 the Maison Ferrand cognac house was taken over by Alexandre Gabriel, who planned to return one of the regionâs oldest spirit brands to the height of its powers. Starting with cognac and then moving into other fine spirits, Gabriel scoured the Caribbean throughout the 1990s in source of rum.
From those trips the Plantation brand was born. Rums are transferred to France, where they undergo final maturations in a variety of casks.
