PLANTATION RUM SINGLE CASK GUATEMALA XO 2019


TASTING NOTES

This single cask rum has a nose of elegant and balanced profiles of wood, spices and fruits with a nice mixture of caramel, black currant and vanilla. Which then evolves into green banana, pear and apricot with some waxy and flowery notes.

The palate is rich, the first sips show some varnish, pineapple and plumb with the next ones being even fruitier tasting sour cherry, gooseberry and a delicate rose petal glanced by more earthy notes. You’ll love the long finish of spicy with nutmeg, fruity on cooked apple and fresh grape.

This rum is fermented 2-3 days in a Column still. Tropical ageing next occurs for several years in Bourbon casks. Continental Ageingwill next takes place for 1 year in Ferrand casks. Lastly, maturation occurs for 6 months in Amburana casks.

ABOUT

Plantation Single Cask Collection Rums are limited releases of double-aged Haute Couture rums. All Plantation rums mature in a two-stage ageing process, beginning in the tropics where they age in bourbon casks, and then at the Château de Bonbonnet in France to mature in Ferrand barrels. 

The rums then benefit from further maturation in carefully selected beer, wine or spirit casks, each selected to enhance the rum's unique characteristics. Every Single Cask rum takes its own ageing path to greatness, and each bottle is personalized and numbered. Only a few barrels of these unique reserve rums are bottled annually, making them a prize for collectors.

Plantation Cellar Master Alexandre Gabriel identifies each rum-producing country by the specific traditions and production techniques of its terroir, the unique environmental characteristics, that give each rum its distinctive character. He chooses the best casks from each distillery, celebrating the qualities that make each terroir special. And the Raffia Sleeve? A tribute to the history of rum.
