Plantation Rum Releases 20th Anniversary Edition
Inspired, he launched his own series of rums, sourced from their original countries of origin-Barbados, Jamaica, Panama, Trinidad, etc.-and shipped to the Ferrand Estate, where they undergo additional aging. While rums are typically aged in bourbon or sherry barrels, Ferrand takes the technique one step beyond by further maturing its rums in former cognac casks. The result is a tantalizingly complex spirit, and the 20th anniversary edition blends several aged examples. Warm notes of dried fruit, cinnamon and macaroons follow a citrusy nose of banana and mango, truly evocative of the rum's terroir.
Price: $39.99 for 750ml.
