Article: Plantation Original Dark Barbados & Jamaica
Country: Barbados, Jamaica
Distillery: Barbados: West Indies Rum Distillery (twin Column & Pot Still (1850 Batson)) Jamaica: Long Pond Distillery (Pot Still)
Alcohol: 40%
Characteristics: This rum is a Blend out of 1-3 years old rums of Barbados and old high ester rums from Jamaica (10-15 years old). The final Blend is then stored for 3-6 months in small second-hand cognac barrels made of French oak in the cool cellars of Château de Bonbonnet/Cognac.
Colour: Burned orange
Flavour: The bouquet is fruity, tasty and harmonious with approvals of black peppercorns, cloves, cinnamon, baked cherries and prunes. Late also black tea and wood.
Taste: At the beginning wonderfully fruity with notes after bright grapes and dried pineapple. In the course increasingly dry and more tastily with vanilla and pepper.
Finish: A charming, tasty sweet finish.
Drink recommendation: For mixing cocktails; a Dark n‘ Stormy Cocktail with this rum succeeds perfectly. But also pure.

Made of molasses; with a dosage of 15 g/l.

The Plantation Rum Collection offers you exquisite and unique treasures of the Caribbean. Every rum is expression of the unmistakably Caribbean flavours and traditions.

The burning methods are different depending on plantation and country of origin. The distillation in the "burning piston" lets arise soft, aromatic rums while "Column Stills" are producing light, elegant rums.

The freshly cut sugar cane of the plantation is pressed to win the juice from it which either is heated up gently to molasses first or is fermented directly to sugar cane juice, the "vesou". These ingredients then come, tradition-like for the respective country, into the burning apparatus.

After the distillation Plantation rum is decanted to the maturity into little oak barrels in which bourbon, cognac or sherry lay before. A method which awards her quite special and unique character to the rums.
