A fabulous blended Caribbean Rum assembled by a crew of seven grizzled veterans of Old Rum.

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.

So, you may be asking yourself, "What the heck is O.F.T.D?" Well, there is the official meaning and then there is the story.

Alexandre Gabriel is the entrepreneur who transformed Maison Ferrand and Plantation Rum into the global quality powerhouses they are today. He gathered six friendly fellow Rum-lovers at his chateau in Cognac, France, to recreate a classic from the past — Old Fashioned Traditional Dark (OFTD) Rum. It is a blend of three molasses based Caribbean Rums from Barbados, Guyana, and Jamaica using three different still types and fermentation processes. And bottled at 69% ABV, Plantation O.F.T.D. Overproof Artisanal Rum is a BFD.

It's just way too overpowering. I'd go for a different rum next time.

Truly special. Neat, the smack of the high proof is balanced by the sweet and spicy notes, which open up in the finish. And for a completely different experience, add a little dilution and it becomes a whole new drink, if you prefer something more mellow.

All in all, this is yet another example of why aged Rum should be considered every bit as nuanced and flavourful an experience as a good whiskey.

This is easily the best rum I'...

This is easily the best rum I've ever had. I don't know exactly how to go into detail, but I would bet that anyone who likes rum would LOVE this stuff. Usually I mix rum in cocktails, not this stuff. No way. It's too damn good.
