Plantation Rum 5 Year Reserve 5 year old
Beautiful amber gold. A true bajan rum with complex and well-balanced notes of ripe tropical fruits and vanilla, evolving to delicate hints of white peach and coconut. The palate is warm and complex with 2 different levels of flavors. The double aging creates a first wave of tropical candied fruits leading to voluptuous bourbon vanilla notes, whose richness is perfectly balanced by the fresh fruits and delicate tannins of the second wave.
Wine EnthusiastAs might be expected from a rum affiliated with a Cognac maker, this honey-colored spirit is finished in old Cognac barrels. The end result is luxe but light, yielding caramel and orange peel aromas, as well as loads of sweet honey and creamy caramel on the palate, accented with a bright touch of lemon. Especially enjoyable mixed with ginger beer, Dark & Stormy-style.
