PLANTATION RUM 15 ans 2003 Cuba The Chronicles 2019 59,8%
Rhum De Melasse, Cuba, 70cl, Ref: 55056
Maison Pierre Ferrand is the fruit of a meeting in 1989 between one of the oldest families of winegrowers in Cognac and Alexandre Gabriel. From very early on, this spirits lover scoured the Caribbean searching for the greatest rums, an adventure that would in the 90s to the creation of a range he christened Plantation. A subtle blend of power and unctuousness, this version wonderfully illustrates the style of rums produced in Cuba. The rich, exotic temperament found on the nose, the floral and spicy nature of the palate and the intensely sweet and honeyed character of the finish are the main steps of a tasting that takes its time to reveal every facet of its personality.
Profile: the unctuous initial nose is vanilla and delicately woody. Exotic (pineapple), once allowed to breathe, it becomes more candied (orange) and mentholated. The fleshy attack is at the same time medicinal (mustard), floral (lily) and fruity (Mirabelle plum). Black grape and bramble enrich the fruity register of the palate. The rich finish is characterized by notes of sugarcane, acacia honey and black pepper. Exclusive to LMDW

- Appearance : burnished gold with glints of topaz.
- Nose : rich, unctuous. The particularly vanilla and very finely woody initial nose also bursts with exoticism (pineapple, banana). Allowed to breathe, candied citrus fruit (lemon, orange) and green mint bring lots of oomph. Increasingly rich, it evokes delicious sweet pastries (choux pastry, walnut cake). The perfectly well-balanced aromatic palette continually becomes more firm and concentrated.
- Palate : both lively and fleshy. Underscored by very delicate medicinal notes (mustard poultice, mustard), the attack is at once floral (lily, broom), vanilla, creamy (coconut), fruity (Mirabelle plum, mandarin, apricot), spicy (ginger, pepper) and herbaceous (fresh mint). Continuing in the same vein, the mid-palate becomes even more fruity (black grape, bramble, prune), whilst the end of the palate introduces new spices (star anise, cinnamon, coriander).
- Overall : long, rich. Prolonging the palate, cane sugar spreads across the edges of the mouth. Gradually, black pepper and acacia honey create a dynamic and unctuous duo that propels the finish towards a more liquorice and roasted (tobacco, coffee) register. The retronasal olfaction is vanilla and fruity (orange, banana, yellow plum). The empty glass wavers between bourbon vanilla, candied ginger and walnut husk.
- The brand
The rums in the Plantation range come from the best distilleries in the Caribbean (Barbados, Grenada, French Guiana, Jamaica, Nicaragua, Panama and Trinidad). The collection is split into two distinct ranges: blends and vintages. The blends are assemblies refined by the Maison Ferrand cellar master. The vintages, whose tastes differ from one vintage to the next, are bottled directly from the cask and available only in limited quantities.
