Plantation Haiti XO Single Cask Limited Edition

,

Plantation Haiti XO Single Cask Limited Edition is a rare 2016 Single Cask from Haiti. This is one of ten rums from Plantation’s 2017 collection, initially matured in Bourbon casks for 5 years followed by a finishing year in Ferrand’s Dry Curacao casks. All the rums in the annual collection are limited editions (this one was specially bottled for the Australian importer, ‘Neat Spirits’ and is labelled as such).

Only 150 bottles of this limited release have been produced, and are individually numbered.

Born from merging origins and a double aging process in cognac casks plus an “original” finish, these sophisticated rums are distinguished by their complexity and rare aromatic richness. Wonderful illustrations of the values passion, perfectionism, and hedonism that Maison Ferrand holds to high esteem. By definition, these “juices” of exception (nectars) are rare in quantity, like a classic and mysterious great perfume. Selected by exclusive sample from worldwide distributors and therefore not available everywhere.

700ml, 40.2% ABV

Plantation Haiti XO Single Cask Limited Edition as with 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 or a desired age, they are shipped to Maison Ferrand’s Château de Bonbonnet at cask strength in order to preserve their richness of aroma and flavor.

There, they are finished by Maison Ferrand in their ‘traditional style’ for several months to a year in cognac casks in order to give them more roundness. Many of the standard Plantation rum range also have sugar added (called ‘dosage’ by some French producers) in order to create the sweeter rums that Plantation are best known for and popularly used by bartenders for mixing cocktails and tiki drinks.
