Plantation Rum Barbados 2001
Plantation // Barbados
A blend of column and pot-still rums from Barbados aged for nine years in used bourbon and sherry casks. It is then finished for an additional three years in former Cognac casks.
Aged RumRum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".
Cask Typeused bourbon, sherry, and Cognac casks
"Pouring the rum in the glass brings the aroma of sugared banana and pineapple with hints of oak and allspice. On the palate the sugary fruits found on the aroma dance across the tongue with the oak tannins joining in midway. Subsequent sips reveal allspice and a pop of menthol, with a light hit of acetone as the alcohol lights up around the mouth. All of this combines into a long, light bittersweet finish."
