Plantation Rum Panama 2000
Plantation // Panama
Plantation Rum, part of Cognac Ferrand, purchases aged rums from all over the Caribbean basin, then continues to age (or finish) them in Cognac barrels in France. This particular expression was distilled in 2000. There is no age statement provided, but given the bottling date, it’s safe to assume something in the ten-year range. No distillery is listed as the source, but given the small handful of rum operations there in 2000, it’s not hard to make an educated guess.
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 TypeFinished in cognac cask
"In the glass, this rum has a moderately dark gold color. Nosing it reveals a slightly subtle aroma with hints of banana, almost like a Jamaican rum; there’s also the barest hint of menthol. The first sip is classic Plantation rum house style – a burst of sweet fruit. In the mid-palate, it turns slightly oily before transitioning to a long, pleasing finishing with traces of eucalyptus. Despite its aging, it doesn’t have much in the way of classic Spanish wood flavor. Plantation’s house style is to add a bit of sugar to their rums to accentuate flavors, and this rum is anything but dry. It’s best enjoyed neat to savor the complexity of flavors."
