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.

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

Well, you could read Paul's review and follow his suggested way of drinking this stuff or you could just invite a mate or two round and get proper mangled.

Bought this for my other half after a rum tasting session in London. Fantastic stuff, very smooth and so drinkable. Can't believe its nearly gone already.

This is a somewhat bizarre rum. My mum who loves rum whom I bought this for, didn't like it because it tasted too sweet.

I as a bourbon drinker, kinda liked it.

You can absolutely taste the bourbon which the rum were aged in, it adds a sort of sweetness with a touch of savoury.. Its not like demerarer rum, its kind of unique.

If you like say Grants Sherry Cask Whiskey or similar, this should be high on your list, but ensure you like bourbon AND rum.

Attractive bottle and it does feel a bit special to drink, like its heritage or something. Not too harsh or dominating flavour. Quite easy to drink straight or over ice. Not sweet as I expected but preferred to Mount Gay XO Rum.

Entirely lacking the harshness of a typical Barbadian rum. Quite concentrated with a distinct hint of raisins and sweet to the extent that you might mistake it for a liquer. I wish Barbadian rum producers could do this in Barbados without having to send their rum away to France to be raised to such excellence.

Drink it straight. My single malt whisky drinking friend on sharing a glass with me promptly went online and bought themselves a bottle... then bought another after the first went. Why 4 Stars? Because there are better out there..... maybe not at this price though
