All Plantation rums mature in a two-stage ageing process, beginning in the tropics where they age in bourbon casks, and then at the Château de Bonbonnet in France to mature in Ferrand barrels.
Plantation Single Cask rums then benefit from further maturation in carefully selected beer, wine or spirit casks, each selected to enhance the rum's unique characteristics. Every Single Cask rum takes its own ageing path to greatness, and each bottle is personalized and numbered.
Only a few barrels of these unique reserve rums are bottled annually, making them a prize for collectors.
Nose : At first the single malt whisky dominates with a malty and fruity profile, mostly of peach and caramel. Then it becomes spicier with cinnamon, grassier with coriander, and there is a delicate note of fresh vanilla. Finally, it evolves on a citrusy note with some pear.
Palate : The first sips have a good balance between the malt whisky and the rum, with a fruity and grassy profile of lemon verbena and refreshing mint balanced by very fine tannins. Then follow green walnut, passion fruit and some light meaty and camphor notes.
Finish : Long and quite dry with lingering tannins on Jamaican pepper, pear, citrus and some light wood smoke.
