This high proof 73% abv addition to the Plantation range is a blend of 6 month to 2 year-old Trini rums with added caramel colouring. There also a 40% abv bottling of Original Dark in the Plantation range and together these are the only bottlings in the Plantation range not finished in cognac casks.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 13/07/2011
Clear, Indian gold yellow with range highlights.
Bitter apricot and orange marmalade nose with aromas of cherryade, chilli heat, buttery oak and a touch of old-fashioned oil paint.
Diluted to approx. 40% abv yields a huge palate with chewy bitter oak, overripe banana, toffee, sweet cherry, well-charred wholemeal toast and vanilla.
Burnt toast, bitter toffee, sweet caramel finish.
