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?
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.
