This extraordinary vintage was introduced to mark the 20th anniversary of Maison Ferrand. An assemblage of fine rums 12 - 20 years old, all originating in Barbados, this is a wonderful reflexion of the island itself.
As with the other rums in the Plantation range, this exotic spirit is aged first in its original country, Barbados, and then benefits with further aging and nurturing in Cognac. Resting in casks originally used for Pierre Ferrand cognac, and meticulously nurtured by Cellar Master of Maison Ferrand, a unique expression is achieved using traditional local methods.
The stunning flora/fruity opening aroma is transcendent, ethereal and intensely marshmallow-like; further time in the sampling glass of eight minutes releases additional fragrance of vanilla, cocoa and milk chocolate. Entry is cinnamon-like and gently sweet, as the sugary molasses taste turns very soft and chewy; mid-palate taste profile reminds me of holiday spice cake, rum-flavored chocolates and sugar cookies. Concludes medium-long, delicate and only mildly sweet. Three years on, the quality has remained as constant as the North Star.
