The Rum Journey from Guatemala to France.
Plantatation Rum offers a diverse range of Rums from the Caribbean. Depending on the plantation and the country of origin, the Rums can vary between soft and aromatic to light and elegant. The distilled Rums are usually aged first in ex-Bourbon casks and then finished at the Cognac Ferrand (their owners) estate in barrels where Cognac or Sherry was matured before.
Plantation Guatemala Gran Anejo is a blend of Rums from Guatemala, which were produced from sugar cane juice, not molasses like most Rums. Sugarcane juice-based Rums tend to be grassier, more pungent, and with heavier alcohol aromatics, which you either love or ... you don't. The Rum was distilled in a short column still, and aged first four years in Bourbon casks in Guatemala. After it was transferred to France, to the estates of Cognac Ferrand for a further 5 months of maturation in Cognac casks. Plantation Guatemala Gran Anejo is not as suave and smooth as other Guatemalan Rums like Zacapa and Botran, but the light roughness is actually part of its overall charm.
