Plantation Trinidad 1997 Kilchoman Finished Single Cask Rum
Palate : Rich and complex, it offers a fruitier profile of cooked pear, peach and starfruit with notes of nutmeg, vanilla and macchiato and a hint of malted barley.
Distilled at Trinidad Distillers Limited on a column still. Aged 15.5 years in bourbon casks on Trinidad, then an additional 6 years in Ferrand casks and 4 months in Kilchoman Peated Whisky casks.
Plantation Single Cask rums are limited releases of double-aged Haute Couture rums. All Plantation rums mature in a two-stage ageing process, beginning in the tropics where they age in bourbon casks, and then at the Château de Bonbonnet in France to mature in Ferrand barrels. Plantation Single Cask rums then benefit from further maturation in carefully selected beer, wine or spirit casks, each selected to enhance the rum's unique characteristics. Every Single Cask rum takes its own ageing path to greatness, and each bottle is personalized and numbered. Only a few barrels of these unique reserve rums are bottled annually, making them a prize for collectors.
