Plantation Grand Reserve Barbado 5 Year

Bottled by Cognac Ferrand, Plantation Grand Reserve Barbados Rum is a precious gem available at a price that will tempt any true rum lover. The aromas reveal sauteed plantains, vanilla, molasses, oak nuance, caramelized honey and clean, fresh ground spices. On the palate, more tropical fruits are revealed— stewed papaya, coconut, grilled pineapple, toasted oily nuts, plump raisins and brown sugar. The mouth feel is rich, full and giving. The finish lingers and is clean—showing hints of caramel and delicate dried fruit. This is unbelievably good rum at an exceptional value. Try it in a snifter, with ice or in a cocktail—anything goes.
