Column distilled in 2000 and then aged for nine years in refill American whiskey casks at its Panamian distillery before being shipped to France where it was finished in ex-cognac casks in Cognac Ferraud’s cool cellars.
Cognac Ferraud has long established relationships with some of the Caribbean’s best distilleries due to selling them used cognac casks for ageing rum. Thus Alexandre Gabriel, owner of Cognac Ferrand has over the years sampled many exceptional casks of rum and this led him to start buying the best examples and shipping them back to his cellars in Cognac.
These rums have been aged in their Caribbean distilleries in hot and humid conditions, generally in American ex-whisky casks. After being shipped to Cognac Ferraud’s Château de Bonbonnet the rums are transferred into casks previously used to age cognac and left in Cognac Ferraud’s cool cellars for several months to two years. The result is a range of ‘Plantation’ branded rums from around the Caribbean.

Clear, orange-light amber.
Rich pungent toffee apple nose with aromas of thyme, eucalyptus and green banana.
Slightly sweet, tropical fruit, unctuous palate with buttery toffee and rich vanilla.
Lasting, sweet, toffee-apple finish. Fantastic.
