A fruity, spicy and charming dark rum. Opens with flavors of white raisins, brown sugar and pineapple giving way to a drier, more peppery character.
Plantation Original Dark Rum is a versatile dark rum from Maison Ferrand. To shape the spirit’s unique flavor profile, Master Distiller Alexandre Gabriel enhances a three-year aged Trinidadian rum with a Plantation proprietary bonificateur – a very old, traditional “pot still” rum which is aged for at least 15 to 20 years with a high amount of esters (the chemical compounds that give distilled spirits their flavors). The result is a medium-to-full-bodied dark rum with qualities of caramel, pecan and tropical fruit. A perfect premium house pour for tiki cocktails.
