PLANTATION RUM XO 20th Anniversary 40%
Rhum De Melasse, Barbados, 70cl, Ref: 15814
Plantation 20th Anniversary is a blend of several Barbados rums, matured and selected by Alexandre Gabriel to celebrate his 20 year anniversary at the helm of Pierre Ferrand. Matured in small cognac casks at Château de Bonbonnet, this particularly spicy rum has a generosity on the palate that is hard to resist.
Profile: refined, precise. Creamy, with notes of vanilla. Empyreumatic (cedar, burnt wood). Strong spices (mustard seed, nutmeg). Heady. Cocoa powder and fresh walnuts. Vetiver.

- Appearance : old gold with glints of amber.
- Nose : refined, precise. Creamy, with notes of vanilla, also empyreumatic aromas (cedar, burnt wood). Strong spices (mustard seed, nutmeg) reinforce its heady character. Evolves with cocoa powder, fresh walnuts and vetiver. The spices gradually gain in freshness and lightness (cardamom, coriander).
- Palate : smooth, silky. The attack on the palate is a flood of coconut milk, cherry plum jam and lime blossom honey. The mid-palate is even more generous (milky cream, apricot tart) and slightly tangy at the same time (rhubarb tart). It persists with heady floral notes (tuberose) and gentian root.
- Overall : long, concentrated. Saline, it is dominated by aromatic plants (bay, thyme) and roasted notes (tobacco, coffee). Gentian root is accompanied by spices (cardamom, turmeric) and heady floral notes (honeysuckle, geraniums). The retro-olfaction is equally heady and the empty glass offers notes of chestnuts and caramel.
- 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.

Conforme à la description qui en avait été faite. Je m'attendais quand même à mieux pour un XO 20th

Rhum que j'avais gouté en échantillon et qui était excellent. JNe n'ai pas encore gouté les bouteilles reçues mais je ne doute pas qu'il soit aussi bon.
