Alexandre Gabriel, Master Blender of Plantation rums, is a great connoisseur of the Caribbean and the rums produced there.Plantation Rum 20th Anniversary XO was created to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Maison Ferrand, the winery located at the Château de Bonbonnet and owner of Plantation. To produce this special edition, the best rums from the Caribbean have been selected and have undergone a double ageing process: the first on the island of Barbados, the second in France in barrels used for ageing cognac.

Plantation Rum 20th Anniversary XO is a complex rum, capable of combining French elegance with the lively flavours typical of Caribbean distillates.

Plantation Rum 20th Anniversary XO

The collection of rums Plantation is divided into two distinct ranges, the blends and vintages. The blends are blends refined by the cellar master of the house Ferrand. Vintages, whose tastes are different from one year to another, directly from the drum and are available in limited quantity. Designed traditionally produced in rum distilleries and aged in barrels in the tropical sun, rum Plantation range feature a unique aging process: the "double aging" - at the appropriate time, the rums are reduced from their country of origin at the Domaine de Bonbonnet in Cognac and aged for several more months in small barrels of clean oak House Ferrand. Plantation 20th Anniversary is a blend of several rums from Barbados, aged and selected by Alexandre Gabriel to celebrate his 20 years at the head of Pierre Ferrand. Aged in small barrels of Cognac Castle Bonbonnet, it proves particularly spiced rum in the mouth of a delicacy with which it is hard to resist. Color: Old gold with amber highlights. Nose: Fine and precise. Creamy vanilla, it also shows empyreumatic (cedar wood burned). Strong spices (mustard seed, nutmeg) reinforce its heady character. It evolves into cocoa powder, nuts and fresh vetiver. At progressively, spices gain in freshness and lightness (cardamom, coriander). Taste: Smooth and silky. The palate is awash with coconut milk, jam plum and lime honey. The mid-palate is even more greedy (in cream, apricot pie) and simultaneously tart (rhubarb pie). It extends the heady flowers (tuberose) and gentian root. Finish: Long and tense. Saline, it is heavily aromatic plants (laurel, thyme) and roasted notes (tobacco, coffee). Gentian root is accompanied by spices (cardamom, turmeric) and heady flowers (honeysuckle, geranium). The palate is at its turn heady and the empty glass is marked by notes of brown and caramel. Profile: Delicate and precise.

- A blend of the company's oldest reserves, this rum is something else. Selected rums aged for long years in the Caribbean are painstakingly blended by our cellar master at Chateau de Bonbonnet then matured in small French oak casks for a further 12 to 18 months. Double aging gives the rum an incomparably round and creamy palate.
- The colour of old mahogany, Plantation XO 20th Anniversary reveals a nose with exotic notes of sugarcane, oaky vanilla and toasted coconut, enhanced by more complex aromas of cocoa, candied orange and cigar box.
- To be enjoyed slowly, with or without a cigar. This rum needs a cigar with lots of flavour, but also some balance. The Flor de las Antillas Toro (Nicaragua) makes a lovely paring, with its coffee bean notes, hearty wood and backing sweetness.

After following the advice of the barman I found myself drinking a rum I post definitely among my favorites.
My experience was divided into three phases: the first smell, you can not give to hear the emitted vapors especially when this rum is served in a heated glass. In the second phase, during tasting warn the typical flavor of the distillate, a bit of alcohol than it is felt even in the nostrils to speak. Finally comes the aftertaste that seems so much wood that has aged. Perfect if accompanied by dark chocolate and cocoa beans.
