Plantation Rum: Ferrand engages in a stylistic exercise

Plantation cleared the 6-metre bar with their Extrême series (already in its 3rd season). So little was our surprise when the team told us that one of the brothers used to be a shot putter – no pun intended! You’re not very familiar with Plantation’s Single Casks, are you?

Plantation Rum

Well, there’s a reason why. Alexandre Gabriel’s team has just decided to communicate about this line. As they return from the holiday, they will release a series of Single Cask rums.

After maturing in a two-stage ageing process (Ferrand’s trademark), these rums then benefit from futher maturation in other casks, carefully selected by el Señor Gabriel in collaboration with other talents in the spirits world.

Guyana 1998 x Ocho Tequila

This Guyana 1998 was distilled in a Port Mourant still at Demerara Distillers Ltd – “DDL” in geek terminology. Stored for 17 years in the country of origin, and then for 2 years in Ferrand barrels in Charente, Plantation style. Not forgetting the Tequila washing, cashmere cycle, at 30°C, for 6 months, with, as a result, notes of agave that seamlessly blend with the rum. A firm favourite!

Jamaica XO x Teeling Whiskey

After ageing for one year in Charente in Ferrand casks, this purely Jamaican blend also benefits from further maturation in casks from the Teeling distillery – famous for its Irish whiskey! This rum is less divisive than its Tequila cask counterpart but deserves to be given serious consideration!

Guyana 1998 x Ocho Tequila
70 cl – 44.8%

Jamaica XO x Teeling Whiskey
70 cl – 52.1%
