Revealing a very suave Spanish style, Plantation Nicaragua 2003 Vintage Rum is distilled in traditional columns before aging in bourbon casks, and finishing in cognac casks. Dressed in tones of amber and gold, a buttery spicy nose reveals hints of baked fruit. Elegant and intense on the palate as it evolves into ripe banana and nutmeg layered in smoky notes.

Tasting Notes: The nose is buttery and spicy with hints of cooked fruits and allspice. The palate is fine and intense with demerara sugar, banana chips and nutmeg, and elegant smoky notes, finishing on caramelized sugar and spice. Overall it’s a delicious fine rum with a delicate smoky flavor.

Plantation Nicaragua 2003 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 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.
