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 : Complex, it starts on an ultra añejo tequila profile with cooked agave, lemon juice, lime peel, pepper, toasted almond, vanilla, pecan nut and then evolves on persimmon, nougat, date, mango and ginseng.
Palate : Fat and full, it follows the nose with a tad oakier and balsamic profile at first. Thereafter it evolves on cocoa, olive, cloves, tar, raisins and toffee notes with some saltiness.
Finish : Very long on molasses, tobacco and liquorice.
