Plantation - Grande Reserve 5 Year Old 750ml
$87.99 price per bottle
ELEGANT AND SUAVE American oak barrels play host to this rum where it ages for three to four years. Next a woody and nutmeg palette is drawn out in Ferrand French oak casks as the rum continues to mature for one to two years. The result is a subtle and tropical Barbadian style rum, excellent for aperitifs or classic cocktails like the Mai Tai. TECHNOLOGY Alc. /Vol. : 40% Origin : Barbados Raw material : Molasses Fermentation : 3 to 4days Distillation : Twin column & pot still Tropical ageing : 3 to 4 yo in ex-Bourbon casks Continental ageing, elevage : 1 to 2 yo in ex-Cognac casks TASTE PROFILE Color : Bright amber Nose : The opening nosing round is all about baking shop fragrances, but also pipe tobacco, toasted marshmallow; secondary whiffs after further aeration discover bacon fat, black raisin, prune. Palate : Entry is bittersweet, roasted; midpalate is engagingly toasty, nearly fruity, as in baked orchard fruits, and resiny. Finishes medium long, chocolaty.
