Plantation Barbados 2001 Vintage Rum

, ,

It is said that the first trace of rum distillation dates back to 1651 on the island of Barbados. The Plantation Barbados 2001 Vintage Rum is a perfect example of rum from the island, at once voluptuous, smooth and fruity.

Tasting Notes: Aristocratic nose that is a vibrant tribute to exotic fruits and spices. Ripe banana gives way to dried pineapple, mango, cinnamon, cardamom and curry. Full of personality with aromas of nougat, mint chocolate, candied walnut on the first palate evolving to candied orange, vanilla and pastries with a sweet and biscuity finish.

700ml, 42% ABV

Plantation Barbados 2001 Vintage Rum like all Plantation rums are first aged for many years in the Caribbean, in its hot and humid climate, generally in young bourbon casks. When they reach maturity, they are shipped to Maison Ferrand’s Château de Bonbonnet at their natural strength in order to preserve their richness of aroma and flavor.

There, they are matured by the cellar master for several months to a year in small oak casks in order to give them even more elegance, refinement and roundness. This ageing technique, used extensively in the 18th and 19th century, had almost disappeared. Drawing on several generations of cask ageing know-how, Maison Ferrand’s cellar master has modernised and perfected the technique in order to produce exceptional rums.
