Product Description

Product Description

Plantation Rums are a collection of unique Caribbean treasures. Every barrel is individually sampled and only those that are of exceptional quality, showing traditional characteristics of the area of production, are selected to bear the Plantation name. Freshly cut sugar cane from the various plantations are pressed to extract the sugar crystals, and the juice is slowly heated to become molasses which can then be fermented. The time of fermentation and methods of distillation vary depending on the distillery and country of origin: pot stills for a round, aromatic rum; and column stills for lighter, more elegant rum. After distillation, Plantation Rums are aged for a number of years in oak barrels in warm Caribbean cellars and then transported to the cool, ancient cellars of Chateau de Bonbonnet in Cognac. The ageing process is finished more slowly, including a period in Cognac casks, giving them a soft and balanced finish.

Product Description

The flagship rum of the Plantation range. A beautifully balanced rum with coconut, vanilla and caramel, and a seductively sweet finish with notes of Cognac from its secondary ageing.

Verified Purchase
Rest assured it's far nicer than Captain Morgan or Lambs, fine though they are. Super smooth, hints of maple syrup in the texture, hints of coffee and chocolate on the palette with a smidge of umami. All in all well worth a try if you can/or are prepared to afford it.

Never more than one ice cube, 18-20C, the ice is only there for a hint of dilution, like the rules for single malt. Please use a wine glass to concentrate the aromas. This is beyond sip and savour, a drop or two will fill your mouth with flavour, comfort and well being. Swirl the not really diluted essence around your glass and inhale..... Mmmmmmm!

This rum does NOT need mixing with anything and should a generous glass be available savour it slowly... Before too long a gentle sensation of well being will suffuse your soul.

Yes this is towards the end of my investigation into the product for this evening, but it does taste unbelievably good... I am rather tempted towards a refill :-D
