Barbados Rum aged a minimum of thirteen years with a palate of delights.

Plantation Rum is owned by French Cognac producer Maison Ferrand, who control no less than a dozen major brands of premium Spirits and Liqueurs. Ferrand is all about quality — and you can taste it. Plantation Rum is their top shelf Rum label. And mighty good stuff it is, too. They offer a variety of Rums from the Caribbean. Depending on the specific actual plantation and the country of origin, the Rums can vary between soft and aromatic to light and elegant — each one showing the experienced influence of Maison Ferrand.

Plantation Barbados Vintage 2005 Rum flowed off a combination of column and pot stills at West Indies Rum Distillery in Bridgetown, Barbados, in 2005. This molasses-based Spirit aged on site for eleven years in ex-Bourbon casks before crossing the Atlantic to finish in Ferrand Cognac casks for an additional two to three years. The resulting Spirit is bottled at 42.8% ABV and has the flavor profile of a confectioner’s shop. Let’s drink it together, shall we?

Smartass Corner:
Many historians believe that Barbados is the birthplace of Rum. Mount Gay is the oldest Rum brand in existence, dating from 1703. But there is historical evidence that Rum was distilled here as early as 1637.

Six months out of the year, eucalyptus trees fuel the power generation plant creating jobs and reducing Nicaragua's dependence on foreign oil.
Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’
Next time you have a tipple of Rum you can say that you're tapping the Admiral. This intriguing phrase comes from the great Admiral Nelson who was killed in the battle of Trafalgar off of Spain. The story is that his body was preserved in Rum to be shipped back to England but, when the barrel arrived, some of the Rum was missing and said to have been siphoned off by some desperate or unknowing sailors. It's a great story but most likely false.
Rum (usually) comes from molasses, the sweet and syrupy residue of refining sugarcane into sugar. Molasses is over 50% sugar, but it also contains significant amounts of minerals and other trace elements, contributing to the final flavor.
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
Throughout the turbulent years in Nicaragua (1980s and 90s) Compañia Licorera de Nicaragua was able to maintain production and storing Rum in oak casks. Today they have one of the largest reservoirs of aged Rum in the world.
