Plantation Single Cask rums are limited releases of double-aged Haute Couture rums.

All Plantation rums mature in a two-stage ageing process, beginning in the tropics where they age in bourbon casks, and then at the Château de Bonbonnet in France to mature in Ferrand barrels.

Plantation Single Cask rums then benefit from further maturation in carefully selected beer, wine or spirit casks, each selected to enhance the rum's unique characteristics. Every Single Cask rum takes its own ageing path to greatness, and each bottle is personalized and numbered.

Only a few barrels of these unique reserve rums are bottled annually, making them a prize for collectors.

TASTING NOTES

Nose : Elegant and balanced profile of wood, spices and fruits, a nice mixture of caramel, black currant and vanilla / reseda. Then it evolves on green banana, pear and apricot with some waxy and flowery notes.

Palate : Rich, the first sips show some varnish, pineapple and plum. The next ones are even fruitier with the apparition of sour cherry and gooseberry with delicate rose petal and ylang-ylang balanced by more earthy notes.

Finish : Quite long, spicy with nutmeg, fruity on cooked apple and fresh grape and floral on hyacinth.
