One Rum, two continents, three barrels, and twenty-two years — it’s a Rum love story across space and time.

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.

Trinidad sits at the southeastern edge of the West Indies. Nearly 4300 miles away, Islay sits off the west coast of Scotland in the North Atlantic. Plantation Trinidad 1997 Single Cask 2019 connects these two exotic lands.

Each year, Plantation Rum issues limited edition Rums in their Single Cask series. Each is unique… impossible to recreate. Plantation Trinidad 1997 Single Cask 2019 aged fifteen and a half years in the tropics in ex-Bourbon casks, then another six years in France in Ferrand Cognac casks, and THEN it finished for four months in Kilchoman Peated Islay Whisky casks. If you’re counting, that’s three different casks and nearly twenty-two years. Just imagine the possibilities.

Appearance / Color
Warm Bronze

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The influence of the peated Single Malt greets you first on the nose with notes of smoky brine and earthy peppercorns followed by lemon zest, toffee sauce, and brown butter.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is complex and alluring with fruit notes jumping over the smokiness — peaches, apricots, stewed pears, Meyer lemon, and passion fruit — followed by espresso, cocoa, vanilla, and malt.

Finish
The finish is long, lightly smoky, and soothing.

Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
Mount Gay Rum is the oldest existing Rum company in the World dating back to 1705. This is also the year Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Britain’s Parliament.
Common Rum classifications: White, Golden or Amber, Dark, Spiced, Añejo and Age-Dated Rums.
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 is a sugar cane based spirit, primarily made in the Caribbean and Latin America, but you can really find Rum in many corners of the world.
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.
