A rare triple-wood offering of premium Plantation Rum using rare and exotic Amburana casks.

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 XO Single Cask was released in 2019, but a few extra cases became available and we snapped them up for you. Ferrand calls this one an XO, and in this case that means that after distillation from molasses in a pot and column stills and initial aging in Barbados, it was sent to France to age an additional year in ex-Cognac casks. Then it was transferred to rare and potent South American Amburana casks for another six months and bottled at 48% ABV. It is a strong and floral dram with a palate of pastries and fruits.

Smartass Corner:
The Amburana is a tree — officially in the legume family — native to South America. It’s a rare species, but the wood is gaining popularity for barrel-making because it delivers an exotic spiciness and complexity to the Spirit. Some think the profile is like a cinnamon pastry.

Flavor Spiral TM
  • cinnamon cinnamon
  • biscuit biscuit
  • vanilla vanilla
  • exotic fruit exotic fruit
  • honeysuckle honeysuckle
  • orange zest orange zest
  • coffee coffee
  • nutty nutty
  • spicy spicy
Appearance / Color
Crystalline Amber

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The fragrance is remarkably complex with notes of cinnamon cream, phyllo pastries, vanilla, exotic fruits, honeysuckle, orange zest, and a back shot of espresso.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is equally interesting with warm roasted nuts — almond and pecan — mango, plantain, milk chocolate, and baking spices.

Finish
The finish is long, rich, and lightly sweet.
