In a nutshell: A subtlely spicy and tropical 5 year old Barbados rum that undergoes a double cask maturation.
The lowdown: This is a blend of column and pot still Barbados rums which are aged for 3 to 4 years in bourbon casks before being shipped to France to be finished in Cognac casks at Chateau de Bonbonnet under the watchful eye of Alexandre Gabriel. Its typically Barbadian succulent nose reveals notes of toasted coconut, fudge and oaky vanilla while dried fruits, soft nutmeg and a touch of tobacco smoke show through on the palate. The finish is quite rich, exotic and lengthy and itr's great for sipping or adding to cocktails such as a Mai Tai
Plantation rum is the creation of Alexandre Gabriel owner of Maison Ferrand based in the Cognac region of France.
