Plantation Rum Jamaica 2000
Plantation Rum // Jamaica
Plantation rums are selected from various Caribbean regions, many of them vintage dated. This one was a molasses-based, pot-still rum from Jamaica. It was then re-casked and aged further in former Cognac casks at the Maison Ferrand who own the Plantation brand of rums.
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".

"There's a funky pungency to this rum, but the 2001 version has even more than this one. The fruit notes here seem to be more like red apple skin, banana, and bitter citrus peel. The rum is rich and spicy, but the sweetness dulls that a bit on the finish which also shows just a touch of grass. Jamaican rums are no wallflowers; these rums are in your face."
