Plantation Rum Grenada 2003
Plantation // Grenada
Although labeled “Grenada,” this rum was column-distilled by Angostura in Trinidad, and then aged for approximately eight years in Grenada at the now-defunct Westerhall distillery. France’s Plantation rums purchased and shipped the rum to its aging warehouses in France for additional aging in used Cognac barrels.
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".

"The nose on this particular Plantation is unusually subtle with hints of sweet fruit that are hard to fully discern. The initial entry on the palate is very typical Plantation-- fruity sweetness created by their use of dosage, or small amounts of sugar similar to Champagne production. On the mid-palate, a bit of oak emerges and the mouth feel is moderately viscous. The rum finishes with a touch of eucalyptus. While perfectly fine for sipping, there are more intriguing Plantation single-vintage expressions available."
